From Bev Farmer of Podenco Friends.
Here is a glimpse of behind the scenes and what happened when the dogs land in Canada a few weeks ago.
I am often asked 'are the dogs stressed with the flight', but we prepare them by getting them comfortable with the flight crates. When I take them to vets they always are transported in flight crates and it's safer for them.
The dogs arrived and they were relaxed and calm and even though with people they have never met before they take everything in their stride. It takes an incredible amount of work and preparation both here in Spain and Canada so the dogs can fly. The paper work is complex and we have to double and triple check everything dealing with customs on both sides.
Numerous messages and phone calls and finally they were on their way.
Many thanks Rhonda Martins, Denise Snow, Karen Balser, Bettina Kay, Elissa Quimby - the team in Canada who made the 36 hour round trip from Nova Scotia to Toronto to take our 9 dogs home.
Also Thanks to Scooby´s Pet Chauffeur at this end who took great care of of dogs.
It was quite emotional to watch the video the girls sent, well done to everyone involved!
