Fat Dogs Aren’t Allowed
Oh boy! Never thought traveling with a dog would prove to be so difficult. As I mentioned I’m planning on walking the Saint James Walk with Doggy, however, getting to Sarria(our starting point) from Seville is becoming a huge headache since driving is not an option. First thought was taking a high speed train to Madrid and from there a regional train to this little village that up to a week ago I’ve never heard of, my guess is that there’s not even a train stop, you just tuck and roll and they throw your luggage off. After some research it turns out that pets are not allowed on any train other than those within the metro area, kind of ironic right? You would think that the problem would be taking your dog on city mass transportation where there is little room even for humans. I looked up the next viable option, flying, on my face! The nearest airport is about 60 miles away from where I wanna go and to get there I would have to take the train on which pets are not allowed. And here comes the shocker, pets are allowed on buses, yeah, you read it right, BUSES, of course on the luggage section without AC. When I heard that I couldn’t help but ask who on their right mind would put a dog down there??!!Who??!! And then, sooner than I expected my question was answered at the park, a girl is going from Seville to Asturias (500 f-ing miles!!!!) with her poor dog, she said she didn’t have any other option but she does, flying! Anyhow, I was not going to discuss that issue with her because I have my own traveling problems to face.
So far what I’ve learned is that if your dog weighs more than 15lbs traveling options are slim, skinny , close to nil.
