I am genuinely concerned after yesterday, Does anyone know Daisy away from PF? That she is ok?

I think she would take maya (if funds allowed) but cannot due to her being unfit to fly hence why she is trying to get the funds together to take Brodie. It is a big decision to either stay here with the dogs or go over there to live with her other half, I was offered a job in the USA, take hubby and some of the dogs but my girls didnt want to go - I chose not to go because I couldn't leave them.. It must be pretty hard for her right now, I know when hubby was away on duty I would have loved to be with him but different reasons as to why I couldn't go. Good luck to her and I hope she works something out. I am going to ask a friend who travels back and for a lot how she takes her dogs when she flysGoodness - how sad is all this?
Seeing beautiful Maya wearing things for sale, I love that dog and so wish I could have her.
I couldn't go anywhere without my guys though, rather stay here than leave them behind or wait til I have the cash to take them with me. I know it's hard getting a job but in the care industry they are always crying out for carers for the elderly/physically handicapped - often to enable them to stay in their own homes. No qualifications needed and full training given, much the same as hospital nursing auxiliaries. Worth a try perhaps and though it doesn't pay much it's reasonable and very rewarding.
They have to be very fit to survive the flight, it is such a risk to fly the dogs, long time in a carrier, the conditions and heat in the hold. If I had gone to USA I am not that sure I would have flown my dogs out there after hearing some of the dogs that have not handled the long flight very well. Such a risk with a dog with a problem. Sad for us but not for the dog.I do feel for her right now and her situation must be impossible to sort out without the cash. It's easy for me to say because I don't have a partner so I wouldn't go anywhere without the dogs but if I had a partner it may be different.
I'd question the vets decision about Maya being unfit to fly though because humans can fly with heart murmurs and pace makers so why not a young dog like Maya? Just doesn't make sense!
From what I understand, but I may be wrong, the rules about transporting and importing dogs have changed so you have to use a 'pet handler' now which costs a lot more than it would have done previously.I really hope she is OK to - She has had to amke a difficult decision to leave Maya behind even if she is being left with her mother in a loving and caring home.
And it's lovely that she has Brody who will be a little piece of home when she gets to the USA
However I will admit I was suprised by her post trying to raise funds by asking for donations for her auction etc - I would of assumed that as she has been planning to go to the US for some considerable time and had planned to take Maya up until recently so was suprised that she hadn't budgeted for taking a dog and started saving as soon as she met her OH
The thread was closed before I had chance to wish her luck - but also ask her why she seems to of left saving/raising funds so late.
i didn't want to comment on this thread because i do find it awfully sad and i really do have sympathy. BUT as a member has such close ties to USA (O/H) this would have been known at the soonest chance possible , surelyFrom what I understand, but I may be wrong, the rules about transporting and importing dogs have changed so you have to use a 'pet handler' now which costs a lot more than it would have done previously.
Maybe, but things crop up in life and we need to ask for help to get the funds for them. It happens and we're not always in a position to sort it out ourselves for whatever reason, that's what friends and family are for. It's not like she's asking for free money, she is auctioning things off etc.i didn't want to comment on this thread because i do find it awfully sad and i really do have sympathy.
