marka & vlast"Do Not Try to Do It Yourself"

Hey guys!

So I had to move from Moscow to Singapore in May 2015 and relocate my two pets -- a dog and a cat. They had to fly halfway around the world, go through a 30 day quarantine period (mandatory for all pets coming to Singapore), but they were finally delivered to me two days ago.

Who Would Win The Pet Travel Olympics (If They Existed)?

Thursday, February 20, 2014 by Caitlin Moore

One of the reasons it's fun to watch the Olympics is they allow us the chance to get to know other countries a little better.

If there was such a thing as the Pet Travel Olympics, who would the winners be? Based on our...
