I know I've been MIA for a while now. I keep promising myself I will start blogging again but can't seem to find the time. Poor excuse I know. But I logged today to find 180 unposted comments - WOW! So just a quick update for now. We are still in the US. I'm a full time student which may help to explain my absence. So much happening that I don't even know where to start. I appreciate the comments from those asking where I am. Please hold on just a while longer and I'll be back...
I recently came across a post on Facebook by a woman who had an awful experience flying with her pets on United Airlines. Since I receive many emails from readers asking advice about relocating with pets, I wanted to share her experience. Now, I have never been on United and probably never will after seeing this:
Seeing your Taylor Guitar being thrown around by baggage handlers in bad enough, but imagine looking out the window of the plane and seeing your pet's crates sitting on the hot tarmac when clearly you had paid extra for PetSafe (http://www.united.com/web/en-us/content/travel/animals/petsafe.aspx):
The animals were near death when they arrived at their final destination. Just take a look at the condition of the dog's crate:
I am told that is blood inside the crate also. The dog and cat needed emergency medical treatment and I'm happy to report they have both made a full recovery. For more info please visit the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/UnitedAirlinesAlmostKilledMyGreyhound (Copy and paste link please).
I urge anyone needing to relocate animals domestically to rent a car and drive to your destination. For those relocating internationally, I had a positive experience traveling with my dog on Delta/KLM. But please, do research as ask for more than one opinion. Here is the link to the page I wrote about my experience moving a dog to Egypt: http://www.onefleetingglimpse.com/2010/02/moving-your-dog-to-egypt.html
