    Some people are absolutely bonkers for like 5 seconds without their pets! Thank goodness that this has been taken into consideration. Pets can be like children to people, you know? But, as I have personally traveled with my poodle before I know, be sure to have all the proper documentation if you want to board!!

    just a question, do you have to wait 6mths from date of passport / blood test before dogs can travel?
