wow - vaseline on noses - i never would have thought of that! I have bought a 3-in-1 spray today that apparently deters mosquitos, acts as a sun screen and a moisturiser, so i'm hoping that should do the trick. How would i know if my dogs are getting sun burnt? 2 of them have dark hair, the other is fawn.

Be Vigilant with your pooches, we have sunscreen for Archie, its like a UVA Protective spray, we need to be extra extra careful with having a bulldog best to keep them out of of the hottest parts of the days.

We are lucky in that our bully wont be to active, so he will sleep, if he could get away with it in the sun as well, the hottest part of the day is at the front so our garden is in the shade from midday onwards, most dogs are pretty self regulating they will go into the shade when they are to hot.

Vasiline is a good remedy for noses, Sudo Cream for tear stains as well.

do you know if they fly out of all uk airports? i am in manchester. i have just emailed them as i couldn't get through on the phone.

I am going to ring around some of the airlines too such as Monarch and BMI and see how much it costs to go directly through them.

I want to be on the same flight as the dogs so it's going to be expensive!!

I know that TFA do all the Livestock Cargo on behalf of Monarch, so if you ring Monarch directly, the likelyhood is that they will stick you through to TFA.

I was limited who we could use for flying over Archie as some airlines do not accept any Barcyphilac breeds of dog.

Im pretty sure they cover mostly all UK Airports, but I cant be 100% sure, Colin or Kevin at TFA should be able to answer all your questions, for your info I have paid just over £300 for the shipping of Archie but that inludes Crate etc.

Yeah its a lot of money, but its all relevant to the type of dog, the value, the size of Crate required etc etc and this boy needs to have Extra Special care. Wrapped up in Cotton Wool so to speak for his flight!
