    Hi all,

    Just s short report to share this possible sad news, we may have to cancel the cruise our usual dog sitters (three of them) are not available. We managed to find another dog board and had a trial run at the weekend. Our dog (COlin) was not happy at all. He became depressed and wasn't eating much. Didn't want to go for walk either.

    It became clear that he need specialist dog boarding with one to one attention and as Colin is deaf, he doesn't like the pack culture and he became very unsettled.

    We need to pay the full balance next week and we don't want to put Colin through another trial and error again.

    We prefer (not really but) to lose deposit as opposed to the full holiday costs. However the travel agent now wanting extra 179 to cancel the holiday. there is nothing in the contract so our solicitor friend will go through the contract and see if there is anything in the contractual law to argue that we are prepared to loose our deposit without having to fork out additional 179.

    We have provisionally booked the usual dog sitter for Sept 23rd as we are now thinking of going to Florida

    We are likely to stay at All Star Movies as this holiday is unexpected so we would have to do it on the budget.

    Will let you all know how we get on today.

    Jx

    It Complicated now as my mind was set to cancel the cruise and go to Florida.

    Had a good quote from Charter Travel 2609 for two weeks at all stars movies resort with park ticket included and flying with Virgin.

    However Stephen found someone who can come and stay to look after our dog. My first reaction was gutted so now I'm not sure what to do sigh......

    Carry on with cruise or go to Florida

    Oh I am so sorry you are confused I don't know what I would do but I think I would be happier if Colin was with the usual sitters rather than someone else.

    I would always say go for the Florida trip but I know you were looking forward to the cruise. I hope you and Stephen don't have too restless a night trying to decide.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Go with the one that doesn't cost you any fees in canceling or rebooking. If that's the cruise, then take it. You've not done it before so therefore it will be a first experience and that is always a good thing.

    It's wonderful that you have found someone to come to the house for Colin. Now. Take your cruise and run with it!
