Remember passports are essential…

A rule well remembered when you are travelling to France to collect your future stud dog. On some bad advice from a friend, and P&O Ferries own information, we went to France last Sunday to collect our new male Gareau and found out that you cannot just go to France and back on your UK Driving Licence. The original plan was that I would sit in Dover and wait as my Canadian passport renewal had not arrived in time.

I wish I had followed that one through but the excitement of picking up our new boy over ruled my head and off I went. The journey home was a bit emotional as the poor boy didn’t travel well and I was detained a long time at UK Border Control until they confirmed that my passport was actually being processed. We missed our ferry and arrived home about four hours late but Gareau is doing well! He is six months old and has an impeccable pedigree. Both parents are Elite A Trial champions and fabulous working dogs.

We are looking forward to the CLA Game Fair and hope to see all of you there! (No passports required thankfully)
