If anyone is flying Westjet to Victoria, Vancouver or Comox, I will arrange to have the dogs picked up at the airport and I will take them to my place. All that is involved is $75 airline fee and $35 Canada Customs. If the plane goes through Calgary, you need to pick the dog up and take it through Customs and claim on your customs card that you are bringing in an animal. A couple of years ago I brought an extra dog back and put it on our island Facebook page and 3 people wanted her! She was found at the Dump by the guy who drives the dumpster and is now happily loved and treasured. The best thing is to check whether there is room for your dog on the flight(1 888 937 8538)and if you change your mind the fee is refundable. They only need a rabies shot 10 days ahead of the flight and I have some of those in my fridge here and Beto will sign the card. Or Rocio if she is back in time. You will not regret this act of kindness and we doglovers will be ever so thankful. I am taking my two and an extra back when I leave on March 4.
By the way, the Delegado said the dog that people were most concerned about was the Doberman as it is the one scaring the vendors and the older people and it was mistakenly thought to belong to Figaro's.
