The day Hugo came, we had to shoehorn him into the trailer and he sweated up badly on the short journey. A couple of weeks ago was the first day he went somewhere since then. We've done lots of preparation in terms of getting him used to the ramp and being shut in but today he had partitions for the first time and, crucially, Uncle Shaun by his side for reassurance. We only went for 20 minutes but he ate during the journey, didn't move his feet and did not sweat at all. Shaun was completely brilliant throughout as well, loaded on his own and stayed calm and dependable throughout. Just to check, I reloaded Hugo again once we got home and he happily went in on his own, was shut in and then came quietly out again.
A non-event, just like it should be.
