A glut of Tesco vouchers

Well should I book the Eurotunnel for spring and maybe even Autumn

Will we be able to go ?

This year has been a wash out

What are the odds of Albert going for a fourth cancer ?

Without considering his melonoma springing into action

And then there is the hound from hell, could he get stuck unable to return when Brexit occurs

And would that be a bad thing I muse

I digress

Canít decide whether to just wing it

I guess it wonít matter that much if we lose the bookings

We both love travelling in France, especially Provence

Rearranging tunnel crossings is very simple and you can delay up to a year from purchase (at least, that used to be the case, best to check).

So - go for it! Give yourselves something to look forward to.

Yes, Sandra, I would book it. If you have travel insurance and you cancel for health reasons you will be covered.

Boris is a dog lover. He will let the Hound from Hell back in I am sure

Frankly, the only thing I can see changing is that we may have to treat for ticks before we return. It was Europe that removed that criteria and there have been some cases reported here now. Of course France may require a health certificate now that we are going to be out but doubt it will be high on their list of priorities and they are easy to get before you go. Just a visit to the vet before you go

Unlike Boris' bluster about No-Deal, his WAB includes a transition period until 31st Dec 2020, so we are "in" whilst being "out". So no change in EHIC, visa etc.

Yes Iíd heard that Gordon

Treating for ticks before entering Britain would be no bad thing

After all I imagine most of use a tick preventative whilst we are abroad

If you're not going for a while it might be best to delay booking for a bit? As I said (but needs checked) the ticket is valid for a year from booking date, not travel date.

I think we just go for the end of March , beginning of May

The hound is 12 a good age for a large hound , especially with his health issues

Not many years left

But, if this is the last

So be it

And I know I label this hound

As a hound from hell

And he is

A travelling nightmare

And Albert fell over him the other night

And has bite marks on his hand to prove it

Itís what he is, a gentle giant until heís not

His hearing is not good

Iím not sure his eye site is either

We no longer trust him with the youngsters of the family

The older ones well they know him so well

As do we, as long as we donít fall over him

He remains my baby, would he bite me if I fell over him?

I guess he may , or maybe not

He really hasnít a clue who just fell over him

One thing to be aware of is that you may need proof of his blood chemistry having more than 0.5ug / litre (from memory) of antirabies antibodies.

That is unlikely yo be a problem if he has had two or three rabies jabs BUT it does take time to obtain the official certificate and then have it entered in the passport.

We had that done for Bob "just in case" during October and it took the nab 10 days to supply it, the UK Government says to allow THREE MONTHS to obtain such a thing - so if March is possible, start sooner than later.

PS in case you had not realised I was referring to Shadow needing the blood test, not Albert...... 😁

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Heís fully up to date with all vaccines
