I did stray from my families customs.

I am just offering you a different point of view. My point of view. Just in case what you really want to do is spend your money to buy a house, and spend your energy to launch your new marriage, you have a supporter.
I know what you mean. I don't care about a wedding. To me it's just a party my parents are throwing and I'm gonna show up. Indian parents are very narrow minded. Mine have given me a lot of freedom and support, including letting me move to America. If all they want in return is that I let them organize a wedding for me, I don't have a reason big enough to object. I know it's a waste of money. To them it's not. It's worth it to 'save face' in front of other relatives.

That's not even the problem though. We'll have to go to India to visit soon anyway. My parents, his parents, our siblings, pretty much everyone, I haven't even met all his family. Now that we're married, we can't just not visit.

The Barkley Pet Hotel- Westlake Village

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow at the dog show!!
That place looks awesome. Thanks for the link.

I'm thinking Marissa's offer for Gustave to hang with her and Obi is awesome!! Can you imagine what Gustave might learn while staying with her?!! How great would that be and what fun those two cute boys would have together!!! Isn't SM great - all these people from different places and walks of life always supporting one another in the most unexpected ways because of our shared love of the maltese breed.

Yes! He's gonna come back as a doggy tricks expert.

It's true. I am so touched by all the love here, by everyone who offered to look after Gustave. There is no better place for him. And there is no better community for me.

I totally feel your pain! I just came back from a two week trip to India. It was my first time visiting and it was absolutely amazing...but it was agonizing to leave Bailey behind for so long! He stayed with my parents and was extremely pampered by them so I knew he was fine but this was the first time I'd left him for that long so I was soooo worried. Anyways, back to the point - I would not think about taking Gustave with you to India. It is too long of a journey and way too much to figure out with travel, custom, his safety there, etc etc. Just go enjoy your wedding, spend time with your family and relax in India...and he will be just fine. Honestly, Marissa's offer is AMAZING and I hope it works out for her to watch Gustave...she is absolutely wonderful so you know he'll be in the best hands!

I cannot think of a better place to stay than Marissa's (except for my house but we live in Virginia lol!). Seriously though I think us SM Mommies have to stick together and what a wonderful time Gustave would have with Marissa . Hope yall can work it out. Maybe we should start a pet sitting network on SM, so that we can have SM Mommies across the world pitch in to help one another!

I'd send him to Camp Obi

If you decide to send him to the Barkley place.... maybe ask if Marisa can be on his contact list in case something happens, or in case Gustave needs anything.

Lots of CA members You are in luck.

But I know Marisa takes great care of Obi ... her DH too! So he'd be in good hands there with her And if it's a few months out you guys could meet for play dates so the boys could get to know each other

Marisa-Sammie is very jealous at the moment he wants me to take Penny on a trip so he can go to Obi's boarding house........
