It's a while until Assembly, but it pays to plan ahead when crossing the border between the U.S. and Canada. Our puppy, Bert Morris Klos Kallery, will be about nine months old by July, and I don't want to leave him behind. I'll look for dog-friendly motel situations, and will share that information when found-- but first, here's what they say about crossing the border: 1. The animal must appear to be healthy. 2. Written certification from a veterinarian must be on hand verifying that the animal is free of diseases communicable to humans and has been vaccinated for rabies. The rabies vaccination certificate must have an expiration date of 36 months or less; otherwise, the certificate must show that the animal was vaccinated within the preceding 12 months. Kittens and puppies younger than 3 months of age are not required to be vaccinated.
