Wag more, bark less

Are you a Foreign Service parent to a non-human child (ie. cat, dog, bird, guinea pig...)?  If so, here are two resources you might find helpful and certainly others have.

FS Pets Yahoo group that is "A group for Foreign Service employees and family members to discuss pets and pet-related issues: moving, boarding, import and export requirements, etc., and any personal stories about the FS life with pets."

Foreign Service Tails blog: "It's a dog's (or cat's or bird's) life following Diplomats around the World"

Updated on 3/24: After a comment (see below) from DiploDoggie (aka Foreign Service Tails blogger) here's the scoop, straight from the horses...er, dog's mouth: "We would LOVE to have stories written by and pictures of FS pets".  So there's the word, folks, visit Foreign Service Tails and submit your stories/pictures!
Note: This is a picture of our dogs Schatzie (white one) and Dixie (Czech Shepherd).  Although Schatzie is not a world traveler - yet - she did come from Georgia to DC where we adopted her from the Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL).  Since she is deaf and has some separation anxiety, I hope she will do just fine when she does take her first airplane ride.
