Milo's great news

29 October 2010 | kennelled in Vanuatu
For all those following our blog who are concerned about Milo, he's doing fine in the kennels in Vanuatu and eating well. He went under to have blood taken for testing, his teeth cleaned, toenails clipped and a face trim about 3 weeks ago. When he came to, Ray said he looked like a ferret. Not only had the vet trimmed around his eyes but she'd shaved his entire head including his ears...I don't imagine that was a very good look.

Then we had a moment that caused us a bit of distress. The blood tests that were sent to New Zealand came back with questionable results that could potentially have meant he was harbouring a tick-bourne disease. It was unclear what that meant but it didn't sound good. Would he be allowed home at all? Or did he require treatment and a longer stay in Vanuatu? So the blood tests were sent off to Australia for re-testing (apparently Australia tests differently).

Today we got the email saying his blood tests are clear!!! Yahoo, Milo's coming home. He flies out of Vanuatu to Sydney quarantine on 8 November. spending 30 days in Club Eastern Creek resort and body spa (not really). We can then collect him around 8 or 9 December. Poor little bloke.

About:
We left Australia on April 29, 2007 to start our 'cruising the world' adventure with an attitude that life's too short and waiting until retirement might mean the adventure never happens. Sam turned 15 this year and we hope these travels will stay with him for life...in a good way. [...]
Extra:
Also travelling with us is our Shih Tsu Milo, a seasoned boat dog all the way from Australia and an avid fisherman. He's always the most enthusiastic when we land a fish or when the bait net is cast. Actually, he's even enthusiastic when we haven't caught anything. He adores dolphins and runs like [...]
