Here's a good one for you, and any advice would be welcome. It does involve BSAPP so I am on subject.
I got a phone call yesterday from an English couple here on holiday in Bansko. They are staying at the plush 5* Katarino resort. They came across a beautiful stray dog at the hotel and fell in love with it. So much so, they are willing to do whatever it takes to get it back to the UK. So I hop in the Jeep after being let down by their tour guide who said he would organise and didn't, and went to meet them.
The dog is a beautiful cross Husky, and the couple are so suited to this dog. I have booked the local vet to give it a passport, microchip and inoculations. It will then be transported to BSAPP Sofia where it has a foster home for 6 months to go through the neccessary quarentine. BSAPP will then organise the transport to the UK.
Just as we are about to take it, the doorman comes out. The same doorman who the day before had said it was a stray dog and the hotel did not care what happened to it.
When we told him it was going to the UK, it was suddenly HIS dog and he wants €200 otherwise we cannot take it.
Now what ?
Unless there are any other suggestions of diplomacy, I do intend to go back under the cover of darkness and dognap it.
The money isn't the issue, its the principal.
