For many of us, it’s love at first sight when we first meet our pets-to-be.
I was a practicing vet for many years and unfortunately had to resist providing a home to the many waifs and strays that crossed my path (we always made sure they had someone to care for them!) but, when it came to returning from Australia there was no chance that Tahlia, our terrier was staying behind.
We moved back to the UK and flew Tahlia across once we were established – despite costing more than our flights put together (and more) plus the inevitable acclimatisation (!) it was worth it without question. She now accompanies us on trips throughout the UK and Europe and is probably the best travelled dog you will meet.
