Bitter blow

This morning I was idly researching ferry prices and asking unimportant questions about travelling with dogs like, where do they sit on the ferry? I stumbled on a blog about travelling with dogs which was full of interesting informative stuff e.g. the best  reasonably priced vet to certify the swallowing of the worm tablet. Lots of readers had asked questions of this couple including one man who was anxious about whether the breed of dog he owned was allowed into France. I’m not sure why I followed the link to the French consular page but there at the top of the list of banned dogs was the Staffie. It had never occurred to me that her breed might be a problem.

Lilah will not be a European dog.

    1. Staffies have gained a bad reputation quite undeservedly. They became a fashion accessory for aggressive youngsters and have been used as fighting dogs. Properly looked after and trained they are affectionate, eager to please little funsters.
      Lilah has gone to a new loving home, I’m upset but she couldn’t come with me so it was best she go sooner rather than later.
