Oskar’s Journey


Posted by wendy | Posted in expat life | Posted on 16-08-2010

It was an interesting experience shipping an animal from US to Europe. As I said in my previous post, it was all pretty painless because of the shipping company. We did all the front work (getting his titer test ready etc) and they did the rest by getting his pet passport and plane ticket. I have to say over all, I really enjoy working with them. We got emails when Oskar arrived at JFK to let us know that he made it etc. I only wish I stuck a little camera that takes a photo every few min to see what Oskar sees in transport. Maybe on his way back to the US next year.

The most interesting part is his crate. His crate is full of stickers from various place. It’s like steamer trunk full of sticker that people used to use for travel.

Here is front of the crate, it’s got our information in Dublin. Under it there’s another set of labels for JFK.

Information about us

The inside has 2 big bowl for water and a fennel out side to fill out the water. When we let him out there was newspaper in the crate in case he had an accident. He had no accident, that dog has bladder of steel.


A cute little tag with his name!


This cracks me up. One live dog! They should just circle the dog picture.

Is' a live dog!

More live animal sticker photo, with arrows!

His inspection sticker:

The pick up was pretty easy. We went to Lassen Hall at the appointed time (his flight was early!) and just picked him up. Over all if I have to ship him anywhere else, I would totally use this agency again.
