Part 2 of Daffy's Journey
(if you haven't read Part 1, please scroll to prior post)
Ingrid's service was on February 24th in Great Bend, KS
Paige (@BlessedBeagle) was able to attend since she drove from CO to KS on Sunday.
Also three other twitter friends of Ingrid's were coming from out of town and out of state too!
The moms of @VincentRocket, @RemydogIG and @FrankieTheIG (Lori, Stacy, and Heather) were all in attendance
The anipal community is so thankful that these 4 lovely ladies could attend. They brought with them the love of us all for Ingrid.

So after 1538 miles over 3 days across 6 states Daffy's journey is complete.
She will start her new life here with us, though she keeps Ingrid in her heart always. As we all do.
We can't thank the members of our transport team enough! You made what would have been a long trip for us much more manageable. Thank you Phi for getting this going!
@SmartScaryKitty made a Storify of the #4Legs4Daffy tweets. And I hear we even trended on Twitter!! You can read it here
A special thanks to #TheAviators who did fly-overs to ensure safe travels for us all, and helped spread the word of Daffy's journey. And to the #BBOT and the #PA who rode along.
Thank you to everyone who supported the transport team these last few days. You have been great!
Ingrid can rest easy with a smile on her face and joy in her heart for sure.
