Our "Fairylight Blade Dream from Russia" had the longest way home.

After all the regulations had been met for his entry into Sweden, it was finally time to say goodbye. We met Carina and Kikki on April 5, 2003 in Rostock who had crossed over to Germany by ferry to pick up Blade. So far our contact had been via phone and email and this was our first meeting face-to-face. But there was nothing strange between us, it was like meeting old friends. Daddy Babu came with us to keep his baby company. Nevertheless Blade was terribly excited, so many new and strange things for him to see and sniff!

We accompanied Carina, Kikki and Blade onto the ferry, our hearts felt heavy. We said goodbye with mixed feelings, a little sad because Blade had come close to our hearts during the 7 1/2 months he was with us but also happy because he has found a phantastic new home in Sweden with Carina.

We are sure to take part in his life from a distance and hope to see him again in the future.
