Where Can I Get MY Passport?

There is a post on the interwebs today about how pets going to England have been getting passports for the last 10 years. I want to know where I can get one! Don't you think my picture would look pretty on a passport?

I'm glad though that the pets there don't have to go through quartan...uh...kwaran...uh...getting caged away from their families for six months. My sister the bird had to do that when we came back from Jerusalem. But she only had to stay in New York for a month and she said the people there were really nice to her. They just had to make sure she didn't catch that bird flu. I tried to tell them I had never even seen her have a bird cold, much less the bird flu. But no one listens to dogs about these things.

Sounds like that Lady Mary Fretwell's doggie had a much worse time of it and ended up going to doggie heaven (unless it was a bad dog...). So I am glad she helped make it better for all the fur children who go there.

But I still want my own passport.


  1. What a great idea! Not only would a passport be beneficial for quarantining, it would also be quite a reminder of where all your pet has been too. My doxie was born in Turkey and has been to five countries with me - woof, woof!

  2. The first thing you need to do is to get your pooch micro chipped. And don't forget to register your pet's chip. Did you know that 80% of lost pets without microchips never see their owners again? You will need a 15 digit ISO microchip to go to the UK. Then, assuming the vaccinations are up to date, get the blood titre test and wait 6 months. A few more steps and you're in. You can find these microchips at and LOTS of information on traveling with a pet at Thanks for the support!

  3. I definitely have a microchip. My mom got it for me before I ever came home. Both of my cat sisters have them too.
