  1. Hi guys…

    I found the first half of the Liza interview interesting and informative, but I have a question:

    How does she manage to be a dog owner AND spend time in Ireland? Wouldn’t Bailey face a quarantine every time she went over there? Or has that rule been changed.

  2. Good question. Actually, she leaves Bailey here in the states while she’s over there. Since she’s only been going over for short stints, it hasn’t been a problem, but if she were to start living over there, she’d have to find another solution.

    As far as I know, quarantine rules are still in effect, but that’s not a topic I’m completely familar with the ins and outs of.

    Glad you’re enjoying the podcast.

  3. I’ll just add a bit to what Corey said. I havn’t taken Bailey over there, so far have been lucky to find people to stay at my home here with him. What I know about quarantine is this – if I would move there without much notice, I would have to put him in quarantine for six months. Now my vet just told me that if I have about a years notice, there is a process that can be done over here that would avoid quarantine. He would vaccinate Bailey and document it, then there is a wait period, more tests/titres/documentation($$$), and then he could go right over with me, but it would take almost a year for that.
    Bailey being the most loveable but truly most neurotic dog I’ve ever known, I hope he dies of happy old age without ever having to make a transatlantic flight!!!
