    @curlytails, omg that is scary. I would have freaked the hell out at the airlines

    @RAM25, as curlytails mentioned, do your research now. I know some countries don't allow dogs to be carry ons and must be in cargo area...followed by a week long quarantine. Also if you are allowed to bring him as carry on...where is he going to go potty? o_o

    We will likely consider a big move like this within the next 5 years. In addition to any temperature changes, and any requirements in the destination country, one thing I know would be a concern for us is the stress from the change. We have brought our boy Ronin on vacation in the past and it didn't seem to upset him, but about a year after we got him we moved our bedroom furniture around... within a couple days he developed a lick granuloma, and moving the funiture was the only thing we could think of that could have brought on the additional stress. Thankfully it went away after time and we havn't had any issues since. But you may want to keep an eye our for that and other stress related issues, and be especially vigilant if your shiba has had stress related conditions before.

  • Sorry to revive this thread, but have you immigrated to Canada yet?
    I live in Montréal and I must say, Molly loooves winter. She's gone out on minus 30 C and never showed any displeasure. The only thing she doesn't like is if she gets ice or salt (from defreezing the road) stuck in her paws, but thats not weather related.
    I must say it's a beautiful sight to see her jumping in the snow, going nuts about it.

    Sometimes there is more snow then her actualy height, but it doesn't matter, she stills venture in and pounce instead of running. It's hilarious :)
