We've had border guards in BC/AB offer us more dog biscuits than requests for the rabies certificate. These are small town border crossings. Dunno if this would happen in Detroit. The dog biscuit offers are about equal to the inspections of the Bambi, which we think are more out of curiosity than customs concerns.

Now, seriously, do we look like people who would poison a dog?

I'm sure it has to be a never, ever thing. You never know who might be coming thru,

Try not to be offended and think about this:

There are lot of reasons for a dog or cat owner not to want their pet to take or be offered food from strangers besides poisoning. I do not want any dog or cat of mine eating any food that I do not know the origin of and/or does not come from us. It doesn't matter what you look like.

In this case, the dog is a highly trained dog who is doing its job. It should be obvious to anyone that, since its reward for discovering what it is trained to look for is most likely a dog treat of some kind, offering him a treat just for the heck of it is counterproductive to his job performance.

Did you offer the border crossing human workers a candy bar?

There is no reason to be offended by someone not wanting their pets or their children for that matter to receive food from strangers, no matter what the stranger looks like.

What does a person who poisons dogs look like?

Ken,

I was kidding, really.....not offended in the least.

I understood, and understand when it happens other places.

I was kidding too.

I don't really have a dog. It was one of our cats in a dog suit.

However, I'm sure she would eat a dog treat.

If you ever need to board an animal during a trip, then papers would be needed. Happened to us in Key West just for a day stay at a kennel. Jim

Of course, that makes perfect sense.

Moral of the story: carry vaccination papers at all times.

In addition to rabies, Bordonella (sp?) immunization is a good idea so your pooch does not catch it from other dogs.

I have never been asked to show immunization records, but carry them just in case. For the first time ever I had to go through the third degree over the phone when making reservations concerning my 2 mutts. At the campground the owners insisted on eyeballing them, was ok and they were apologetic that it was the insurance company's fault. On the other hand the park was very well maintained and they didn't put up with any shananigans. So if you have a pit, glue on a couple of horns and call it a cow.

Very true! Also, if your pet should need emergency medical care or just a routine vaccination during a long trip away from home. For example, we tried the snowbird thing last winter, when our dog needed her rabies shot. Generally the vets want to see the older certificate so they don't vaccinate too soon.

Most kennels require a bordatella shot (kennel cough). Then there's the usual stuff like distemper or heartworm medication.

We went to Yellowstone last summer. Park regulations require vaccination records. A frantic call to the vet and we had them faxed to us. Inside the park? No one ever asked for them.

I wonder why Yellowstone would ask for them when other NP's don't, at least not routinely.

We have never been asked to show Lily's vaccination records at any park we have been in.

When we are home, there is some vaccination Lily has to have every three months, more often than legally required and maybe the Bordetella, because she is in doggie day care one day a week. They require it, let me know when it is due and we take her in.

In spite of that, she caught this/kennel cough once when they were having an outbreak at the day care. We had been warned, so took her to the vet as soon as she began coughing, but she still became quite sick and had to be treated with antibiotics.

What we do for our sweet babies.

If you are not aware, there is a canine immunization for rattlesnakes. It won't keep your pooch from getting sick, but may keep Rover from getting dead. It needs to be administered yearly.

A couple of weeks ago my Judy was in a nose to nose staring contest with a rattler. She did not get bit, but I was sure glad Judy had the shot.
