Traveling with pets: No-deal Brexit would make it far harder
LONDON (AP) All across Europe, families and couples on vacation are seamlessly crossing borders with their beloved dog, cat or even ferret, thanks to the European Union Pet Passport scheme. Now, as a no-deal Brexit looms as a possibility for Britain, free pet travel is under threat.

Is THIS seriously the best argument the opposition can come up with ?
I can totally see the AD campaign Vote NO on Brexit! Do it for the Children! Ahhh I mean puppies. A wise man once said,... BE extra careful whenever the argument used FOR or AGAINST something leads off with one the following TWO themes.
1. Its to PREVENT terrorism !!! OR 2. Its for the CHILDREN . In this case substitute PUPPIES
These 2 themes intend to invoke an emotional response at the expense of common sense arguments FOR or AGAINST some deliberate action.
They’re really scraping for excuses to oppose Brexit here.
Concur. Cant help but picture a WorldWide advertisement campaign AGAINST Brexit with the theme. Forget the Economy ! do it for the CHIlDREN and the PUPPIES
I am a dog owner. F the pets. This is Freedom we are talking about. A little inconvenience over being free of the shackles of the stinking EU.
Brits cannot figure out how to get a puppy on a plane without the benevolent guidance of their masters in Brussels?
My how the mighty British Empire has fallen...
I can totally see the AD campaign Vote NO on Brexit! Do it for the Children! Ahhh I mean puppies.
Do it for the ferrets!
When you travel with a pet it is hardly a vaca you pretty much are just taking care of them somewhere else.
England is pretty nice and has tons of history that there would be no need to go to the EU.
I think I may have forgotten the /sarcasm tag....
It really appears as if the opposition to Brexit has come down to THIS?
#1 Economic Activity - Business/
#2 International Tourism and Trade Agreements just to name a couple
Isolation does not work but using the Pet Puppy argument against Brexit is a real stretch that the world media and ANTI Brexit is clearly trying to exploit. Quite humorous but how effective can it be?
Do you seriously see this derailing Brexit?
Globalists are absolute fascist nitwits . ..at best . Freedom from these arrogant asses must be sacrificed for someone’s pet? Globalists & LIBS are equally lunatics . Sheesh!
Yeah...No. I get a family member to watch my pets. I am constantly watching my kids pets when they go on vacation.
In a pinch I have put my dog in a kennel. I found the best one in the area.
free pet travel is under threat
I didn’t pay to travel with cattle.
Wish we would make it harder for flying in the US...instead we are approving ponies to fly....
You dont care about the Children and their puppies!!! How dare you racist puppy hater I bet you own a gun and read your Bible too!!!
/sarcasm my FRiend
Puppies and kittens have proven to be one of the most effective advertisement props in marketing.
If the UK does a hard Brexit, I will kill this puppy!
A 4,000 mile long border without a single soldier stationed on either side.A strong,vibrant,trading relationship with goods and services flowing freely in both directions.Two entirely sovereign countries where,although citizens travel freely and easily in both directions,nobody has a "right" to even *enter* the other country,let alone live and work there.
I believe that the US and Canada are the very best example that's ever existed in human civilization of friendly neighbors.
Concur. No reason why U.K. cant have bilateral agreements with every EU member nation. The argument that European Economy cant survive without being ONE nation economically is ridiculous. That argument is for to promote Globalism.
Yooooo dun crossst that thare liiiine now.
