Hi, if you are using the tunnel for the first time with animals, a tip to help you. Whenj approaching the ticket booths, stay as far to your left (opposite of right) as you can, this also when you approach both French and English Border control in that order, if you require fags or tobacco, junction 1 in Belgium to adinkirke, only 5 mins from a14. much much cheaper than the duty paid at the Terminal. safe trip.

When I took Benjamin (dog) to the UK via the tunnel they tried to stop the dog on the premise that his tick treatment was more than 72 hours old. Fortunately I caught the early morning train and I was able to point out that the vets are not open at 5.00am and therefore the 3 day old chop on the pet passport must be less than 72 hours. An agitated young lady dog checker let us pass but unless the rules have changed beware. It may be worth getting your pet health stamps post dated if necessary. Apart from this the train is by far the best way to go with pets.
I'm sure we will hear from you before you depart but wish you a good journey.

Just thought that I would add a snippet on Dog travel. Sasha has our Labrador sized Moscow street dog with her in Burgas at the moment and intends to bring him back on the Train on Friday to Karnobat.

I suggested that she telephoned Bulgarian Rail before turning up with him and he might not be allowed on the train, she did and they said, ''No problem as long as he has his Passport''.

Well, we don't as it is in the village so Sasha just went a bought a blank one for 2 Lv. I will send his 'Chip' number later so she can write it in. He travels, hopefully, at half adult fare.

His name is Wally and he is on leave from serving in the Ukraine, but nobody in the Kremlin will endorse that so he must be freelancing whilst he is on leave. Rolling Eyes

We have safely arrived back in the uk after our 2000ml + journey.Only thing is,we are minus 2 of our dogs.
To say I'm devastated is an under statement.
They travelled well and apart from one of them,they travelled farely stress free.Got to the tunnel,arrived at the pet centre ,no problem.Started to take them in.All was well until Lucy,[rescue dog] was scanned and her microchip didn't show up.The staff came round with a larger scanner,but to no avail,we couldn't find it.
The last dog to be scanned was the karakachan [Max],his also was undetectable...double blow.
Tears were welling up in my eyes,all this way then this.
Proceedure was then that we had to take them to a vet in Calais for him to check...still nothing.
They told us what we had to do.New microchip,new passport,new rabies jab,and then we had to take them to kennels and leave them for 21 days...I've been through some rough times in my life,and coped,but having to leave 2 of the dogs I rescued was a killer.I'm not ashamed to say I cried,and still do,now and again.
The lady at the kennels was nice and said that they would take them both on the 9th of January to have the worming tabs,and I am arranging to go over and pick them up from the kennels on the 10th January.
Don't know why 2 chips didn't show up when the other 4 did...cannot do anything about it now,just wishing the time away.
So,no matter how many times you have your dog\cat checked,the chip can disappear,so to speak.
Not a great Christmas present,but looking forward to 10th Jan.
Hope you are all well over there...the sun is shining and much to do.
Steve

Glad to hear that (most of) you got back okay, Steve - and there's no shame in showing your emotions, especially when it's for members of the family that are more faithful and steadfast than a lot of kids these days. Wink

The "disappearing chip" was a fairly common phenomenon a while back and it looks as though the technology hasn't improved lately - but at least you'll get a late Xmas pressie when everyone is finally home....

Have a great Yuletide and try not to eat and drink too much!

Wow, I've never heard of a disappearing chip before what a bummer. Our dog was scanned recently and the Bulgarian Vet said it was in the wrong location, but my Wife told him where it was as she was with the dog when the Russian Vet inserted it some 8+ years ago.

Never mind Steve at least you haven't lost the dogs forever, it could have been worse.

Merry Christmas.
