1-28-09 It is with great delight that I get to start another member's journal! D called me today saying she wanted the other macropus at my LFS, Pet Connection. I still had my shipping containers from Aku, so I grabbed them and my camera, and headed to the store! As usual my guys were happy to let me photo everything, and I learned last time to take measurements in the critter keeper! They rinsed "her" well with clean tank water, made sure the water in the bag was clean and had lots of air (no O2, though). She was bagged well- each bag individually rubber banded, then put into a styrofoam container with wads of newspaper to fill the empty space so she won't roll around. We wrapped a 24 hr heat pad in newspaper and taped it to the lid of the container. Then the styrofoam lid was taped on, followed by the shipping container being well taped. Job completed by 4:30 pm. From the pet store to FedEx, where overnight shipping costs more than the octo! They were able to tell me she will be on the last truck out tonight- 7 pm, and gave me a tracking number. They said by 10:30 tomorrow!
