    (again lol) We lived there for 6 years then I came home to breed dogs and import English Shepherds. But I miss my hubby so much, I'm going back. I'll take my dogs with me, and will come home periodically. :)

    LOL I couldn't leave my babies :)

    Its a VERY different place. The dogs will have to be exercised at night or in the pool.

    I've been here for 2 and 1/2 years.

    LOL they'll love it with me too ;)
    Saudi's a STRANGE place. Inside the compound is like a holiday resort - pools, gyms, bars, etc. Outside - well, no drinking, women can't drive and have to wear black nylon from head to toe, no talking to any male that is not a close relation, etc etc etc...:rolleyes:

    Not sure when, I was thinking of waiting until after the summer but now the decision has been made, I guess I'll go as soon as I can get a dog specialist to help with their travel.

    My ex landlord works out in Saudi. He runs a bar in the place he stays (he fixes up army planes) and has to hide it whenever someone they don't know comes round :scared:

    He must live in a private villa rather than a villa on a compound. Thats far too risky for me! :scared:

    I remember when i lived in the UAE my friends had just moved from Saudi, they lived on a compound, and for their mum who was quite an independant woman she found it difficult as she had no freedom if she stepped out of the compound.

    An experience lol, I consider myself fortunate not to have lived there when I reached puberty as I would have had to wear the black veil (abayah?) but they were good times while we were there
    Bahrain & Dubai were a lot more fun places to live:thumbup:
