I Have Arrived, BUT…

After what seemed like DAYS on the plane, we finally touched down in Paris, France! It was a loooong walk from the plane to customs, and then even further to baggage pick-up. Our FIRST bag came off the belt pretty quickly and then we stood for over an hour while EVERY BAG ON THE PLANE was claimed… leaving us to realize that our SECOND BAG was missing. We drudged off to the Air France desk where the lady was quite sweet and helpful. The bag was not showing up anywhere in the whole wide world. Mummy slumped down in her chair, trying to recall WHAT EXACTLY was in that bag!!! They will search for it, and deliver it when/if found. In the meantime, Mummy was told to buy whatever “essentials” she needed for a “reasonable price” and forward the receipts within 21 days to their office. Hmmmm… what MUMMY calls “reasonable” and what AIR FRANCE calls “ reasonable” might not be the same thing. I’m just a little dog but I’m pretty sure we are going to have a problem here! Once we got to our OVER THE TOP FABULOUSLY GORGEOUS apartment, we took a quick nap and headed over to Carette’s for dinner with our friend ms Laurence and her yorkie baby, Pamela. Pamela was sooooo excited to see me again!!! We will go shopping tomorrow for “essential” Louis Vuitton stuff and a massage to DE-STRESS, which is also “ESSENTIAL!!!” Just sayin.


UPDATE: We received our missing suitcase late Thursday night … about 11:30pm. No explanation was offered but we think it missed the connecting flight in Atlanta. Now we have clothes and all of our essentials, including HAIRBOWS!!! ?

    Did you fly Delta? If so and you still have the baggage claim scan it with the Delta app and see what it tells you there. It should tell you if it was loaded on your first flight if it wasn’t send your husband to the airport?

    Oh Millie. Your Mummy will leave no Louis Vuitton unturned in order to surround you with only the most ESSENTIAL of necessities. Do have fun and I believe a Hermes scarf is surely something the nice French people at the airline will agree is needed. Love your apartment.

    Dear Millie and Darsey,

    You deserve your beautiful, serene apartment to make up for your troubles at the airport! Which arrondissement is it located in? I’m just curious–please don’t answer if you’d rather not. Millie, I know that having your own food from home is always best for little doggies when traveling, but your Mummy is a great cook, so I’ll bet she can whip up some delicious meals for you until that bag is found. I am optimistic that the bag will turn up with food, blankies, and HAIRBOWS safe inside it. Have a nice relaxing time with your friends. Bisou bison.

      Thank you. And luckily our bag arrived about 11:30pm last night so we are back in business. I have several carrying bags and switch them out often. I have a few gently used bags for sale in my online BOUTIQUE under Millies Second Chance Closet (these things were once mine) and I will be adding several more later. Mummy used to buy me soooo many carrying bags and we need to thin out my closet!!! ?
