Leavin' On a Jet Plane

So I hear all of this talk about leaving the United States and immigrating to another country. Number one, immigration is not an easy task anywhere around the planet.

One man in the article above named his pup something that translates to “Firstborn son

Other countries do well by pets. However, if you have difficulty with the politics in this country, going aboard may not fare any better. Send us a postcard!
