UPDATE - UK Pet import rules have changed!!!

Hooray!!  Pet travel rules changed on 1 January 2012 when the UK brought its procedures into line with the European Union. From this date all pets can enter or re-enter the UK from any country in the world without quarantine provided they meet the rules of the scheme, which will be different depending on the country or territory the pet is coming from.  Check out this website for all the details:  http://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-pets/pets/travel/pets/pet-owners/#a


  1. Hi! I know you haven't posted in a while, but I'd just like to say that I've been reading all your entries for the past two hours, and I think they're awesome!

    I love the way you describe quirky British life - and the fact that, even during your bad British experiences, when people are downright horrible or weird, your account is still endearing, gentle and good humoured!

    I know you've not been back in the UK for a while, but - as a native Briton - I'd seriously love to see you posting again. I did so enjoy your articles. :-)

  2. Thanks for the kind words! I do really miss living in England, and also miss having the free time to write this blog. I'm now back in California working full-time as a lawyer, and my English boyfriend has become my English husband. I'm looking forward to our next visit back. Hopefully I'll be able to resume writing this blog at some stage! Cheers
