August 15th, 2016

Episode 434 of 463 episodes

Do you want to bring you dog or cat with you on your vacation? Learn how difficult that can be in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:14 Explanations: 3:16 Fast dialog: 14:48 Amin: I can’t stand to be away from Fifi for two weeks. Can’t we bring her along? Eva: We’ve talked about this before. Our dog does not like to travel. We’ll board her. Amin: What if we get a really big crate or carrier that Fifi will feel comfortable in? Eva: It won’t make a difference if she’s left out on a hot tarmac and has to spend hours in cargo hold. Amin: It’ll be well ventilated and the crate will be large enough for her to turn around in. Eva: She’ll still bark and whimper and you know it. Do you want her to suffer? Amin: Of course not. What if she can travel in the cabin with us? Eva: She’s too big. Amin: We could change our travel plans, drive instead of fly. Eva: We’re not changing our travel plans. She’ll be fine at the kennel. Amin: She’ll have separation anxiety. Eva: Are you talking about the dog or about you? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
