Re: Thoughts on shipping an eleven year dog from Australia to U.K

We too used Jetpets and they were brilliant - our westies were nine and seven. They are now romping around our lovely countryside like two young pups :thumbsup:

Good luck with your return.

Re: We Love England!

Not sure how anyone can be an expert when it comes to other people's lives or feelings. Surely these are unique to that individual :confused:

We knew within five weeks that we'd made a massive...

Re: Teenage Daughter not wanting to move back to UK from Perth WA

I really hope that your move works out to be all you dream of. But be careful. As others have rightly pointed out, living in a country is completely different to going on holiday there.

Moving within a short distance is stressful enough. But moving thousands of miles is...

Re: to sum up...why do so many return from Oz ?

Re: Just as cheap for us to live in UK
