Linda & Russ,
We just wanted to let you know that we made it back to chicago, safe and sound. Copper-Leo is asleep on the sofa, next to me, in his new bed, covered with a soft blanket.
He and Bella shared the new bed, in my lap, most of the way home. No issues between the two of them at all.

You were right - he is a sweetie. We look forward to seeing how his personality comes out, as he adjusts to his new home.
Will send pictures soon. Thanks again!
