Maybe they were just acting smart! Regardless, you now have Pepsi home! :-)

Found this article in ET today. A person's experiance in ferrying 2 dogs from Kolkatta to Delhi in a First Class bogie by Train. I din't know where to put it, then remebered reading this thread a few weeks back. This information might to be too late for Pepsi, but might be usefull for someone else in the future.

Makes sense. A full-grown dog could bark himself hoarse. I dont know this because there was no sedation business when I once transported a pup.

Default Re: Transporting Pepsi from Mumbai to Tamilnadu EDIT: Pepsi reaches home

Pepsi crossed the rainbow bridge and went to the doggy heaven today.
I am heart broken.

She would have completed 13 this August.

Age and weight issues had caught up with her and she became very slow for the past 1 year.Last September our Vet suggested we should consider letting her go,but we refused and with the fighting spirit she had,she fully recovered.

Yesterday night she started bleeding non stop through her nose and was rushed to the Vet.She was diagnosed with hemorrhage and mutiple internal organ failure.It was time to let her go.She was my baby and being far away from home really tears me up.One half of me keeps telling me she had a very fulfilling life and left without much of a struggle.

She was the best companion one can ask for.She loved kids and they equally loved her back.Here is a picture of her with my son taken last September.
Good bye Pepsi.The void you leave in my heart will remain forever and that place is only for you.No one is going to replace that

Our family has always transported our pets (when required) either by Train, always in the first class coupe or first class air-conditioned coupe - (Madras-Calcutta-Madras or Madras-Delhi-Madras or Madras-Mettupalayam-Madras), or by our own private car, or by the "tea estate trucks/ jeeps" whenever Mom and Dad were getting transferred between Estates or between Tea Plantation Districts - always but always accompanied by one of the family or one of our trusted "home people" who have equally loved them.

Made sure at all times that there is water handy and food as well. (Simple easy to digest stuff, like plain Idlis and Curd Rice or bread/milk).

Even when I moved from Pondy to Bangalore 14-15 years ago, my two doggies came with me and my "home person" in the old Gypsy, with the AC on, with frequent stops for water, bio calls and a "leg stretch" in the country side.

I somehow cannot handle the thought of sending a doggy all by himself/ herself, sedated in a pet cage, by plane to a far country. It is frightening to me. Im sure it is worse for the dog.

If ever one is forced to do this, then as far as I know, the ONLY airline that does a proper job of it, is Lufthansa.
