    Sorry, that was not very helpful.

    Tranquillized under-slung load (with earplugs, of course)?

    You know I'd start with the local animal shelter closest to you... or even call a couple in Phoenix and Tucson and if they can't give you information, I bet they WILL know who to contact about this issue.

    For me, this would be huge and I'd want to make sure it is handled responsibily so I can understand the concern. Keep us updated on what happens, Paul.

    Tristan, don't be such a bitch.

    Paul, google pet shipping services. These service will make the flight arrangements, pickups and drop offs at both ends, kenneling as needed, etc. that's how we got two of our cats home when we moved back from Hawai'i. Good luck.

    Read this guys' post! He even said, "That beats dropping her off at a shelter's drop box because I'm currently left with no other choice...still haven't heard back from anyone."
    No other choice?!? icon_mad.gif

    There's no excuse for him. Like I said earlier, he even started a thread in which he was contemplating taking his dog to a shelter because he was sick and didn't want to take her out. icon_eek.gif

    Hey....wait a second. Aren't you the one not to long ago that killed a couple of his "pet chickens" just to try out a new dish? Makes sense now....icon_rolleyes.gif

    -And before all you haters start, this has nothing to do with me being a Vegetarian. But rather he himself had referred to the chickens as his pets.

    He's the one that needs to be in a shelter to be euthanized.

    When I was growing up, my dad shot every single dog I ever tried to own.

    EVERY. SINGLE. DOG!!!

    This is the first dog I've owned since my dad died in 1993 (which I'm glad he did).

    Don't you DARE tell me to shoot my dog, you fucking slimeball!

    Paul, he was suggesting that you tranquilise (he's a brit, hence the spelling) the dog, put ear plugs in the dog's ears, and sling it below the plane. He was not suggesting shooting the dog.

    Lie. They're being raised on the farm and are/were most definitely not pets. You need some better meds, bro.

    Thank you camfer. Plus, it was a joke (not that I should even have to point that out, but clearly subtlety is not the order of the day).

    Americans, from my experience, don't do subtle.

    On second thoughts, a kennel strapped to the roof (a la Mitt) might work better. She'll still need those earplugs though.

    Just FYI, even though I know it was a joke, tranquilizing a pet for transportation is a bad idea. The airlines I looked up won't allow it. The traveling can be a little bit hard on them, and tranquilizing can even result in death. Also, certain breeds cannot travel by air. The airline will have a list of ones that can't.

    Absolutely. I should also point out that carrying a pet in a cargo net under an aircraft or in a kennel strapped to the roof, are both very bad ideas and should, under no circumstances, be attempted, by anyone, anywhere.

    No animals were harmed in the making of this post.

    What if you flew the plane to Florida and put your dog up in a kennel while your flying. Then fly back to Phoenix on Southwest airlines of course and pick her up. I'm probably no help haha

    That's a rather obvious solution.

    After returning to Phoenix, he could take her on a commercial plane with him back to Florida. Obviously that would cost more, but so what? If he isn't willing to spend that much on the dog, perhaps he shouldn't have a dog.

    A caveat: Except for very small dogs, dogs have to travel in the cargo hold. Because cargo holds can become too hot in hot weather, many airlines will not permit a dog to be loaded in excessively hot weather. Thus, it is possible to find out at the last possible second that the dog cannot be loaded onto the plane. A night flight would probably solve that problem.

    I actually thought of using that option. icon_lol.gif

    But I've decided to let her have a new home. Before I got her, I didn't travel very much. Two months after I got her, the job sent me here...and I've been traveling places every month or so ever since. Looking back on it, and into the future, I'm really in no position to keep her because she'll be spending most of her time in kennels or in transit...not a good life for a dog.

    Paul,

    I know that there have been a lot of negative comments on here, but I also know that this has been a difficult decision for you. Sometimes you make a decision based on one set of life circumstances and then suddenly those circumstances change and a new decision has to be made.

    I truly believe you have struggled over this decision and will ultimately make the one that you believe is in the best interest of the pet and everyone involved.

    Hugz.

The traveling can be a little bit hard on them, and tranquilizing can even result in death. Also, certain breeds cannot travel by air. The airline will have a list of ones that can't.

    I could understand that when transported via air, tranquilizers could be unwise. When my late partner & I relocated 1500 miles by car, however, we went to his cat's vet, who prescribed tranquilizer tablets for her. We knew she was a bad car traveler, who would either be howling in her cage nonstop, or be dangerous jumping around the car loose in a panic.

    We made a comfy "nest" for her in the dark trunk, with free access into the car through one of the lowered 60/40 rear split seat backs. We had almost no luggage, just clothes for the road, everything else on the moving van.

    We monitored her, and she was just a little sleepy, and very quiet & manageable, content to hear our voices and see us, with an occasional petting when she was on the back seat. Less traumatic for her and better for us, a very easy 5 days, with a day spent at a friend's along the route.

    So for a long car trip some tranquilizers from a vet could work for some animals, like a cat that doesn't travel well.

    Like others here, I remember last winter you were ready to drop your dog off at a shelter because you refused to walk your dog in 40 degree weather. Direct quote from you in that thread: "If the weather doesn't warm up by the end of the week, I'll take her to the shelter to find a new home."

    You really should not own a dog. I'm not saying this in a bitchy or judging manner....just telling you the facts. You do not have the personality to be a good guardian for a dog. You seem to view animals as objects rather than living creatures that actually have feelings and emotions. You don't "ship" a dog. You ship a TV set or a bar stool, but you don't ship a dog. I know people do it, but people do a lot of things they shouldn't do. Your dog will be terrified and traumatized. If it were my dog, I would do the same thing I would do for my child....either drive him there myself or have someone do it for me. If you think this a ridiculous solution, it only supports my opinion even more. Find someone who will give your dog a loving home.

    Reported me for what? For letting everyone no what a piece of crap you are? How you could really care less about your dog that you seem to view as a piece of lawn furniture?

    You have a couple of people on here who are doing nothing more than giving you a pass. Saying how this was a difficult decision for you. Please...as I and others have been stated several times...you actually were stupid enough to start a thread about taking your dog to a shelter because you weren't feeling well, and didn't want to take her out.

    But look folks....Paul here has decided to give up his dog in pursuit of his own selfish needs. (There's a shock.) "But I've decided to let her have a new home."
    So please enlighten us all Paul....please tell us how much time and effort you are going to put into finding a HOME for her. (Insert Jeopardy music here....)

    You know it....we all know exactly what you are going to do!! Exactly what you implied earlier...."That beats dropping her off at a shelter's drop box because I'm currently left with no other choice...still haven't heard back from anyone."

    What goes around, comes around. So please, fly off in that little toy plane of yours with the clear conscious that I know you will have. Meanwhile your loving faithful animal companion will be having a needle inserted into her vein. Then afterwards, since no one will be there to claim her, she'll be tossed in an incinerator like a piece of trash.
    I've volunteered at animal shelters since I was 12. Have seen many despicable humans like you before. icon_cry.gificon_mad.gificon_cry.gif

    Great job there Paul. Have a great flight.

    Tristan
