I’m sure you don’t remember but about 4 years ago, I contacted you as I’d just bough t my first Irish Terrier pup – and my first dog since I was a little girl. Well four years on Reilly is the most important thing in my life (don’t tell him or my partner that!), and I have never had something that had impacted my life so profoundly.
But now following the death of my father, and the need to look after my mother in Sri Lanka, Reilly and I are about to embark on out next big adventure – emigrating to Sri Lanka! Whilst itâ€™s all very exciting I am worried sick about the stress the flight and being separated from us in a crate for 10 hours will do to him. I can’t give him toys or even something of mine with my smell on it. He is a wonderfully balanced well behaved dog and I’m sure he’ll cope fine but I’m not coping with putting him through this. Is there any advice you can give me? I also wonder if you hear from a Danish Lady called Karen – she used to walk your IT’s and in fact I think you gave her Sienna? Also a lovely older gentleman with an IT called Buster who walks in Peckham Rye Park also knows you quite well – Reilly and Buster are great friends. I do hope this move isn’t going to deprive my boy in any way…..any advice would be greatly appreciated.
