Brexit, the consequences
As the Brexit seems most likely to happen after counting most of the votes from the referendum, uncertainty awaits!
Besides having a dramatic economic and political change, there will also be issues with immigration with regards to European Union workers. (And their dogs!) Will it be beneficial for Britain or the further isolation of a power-house.
One of the indirect consequences could even affect a group that voters haven’t considered! This group didn’t have a vote on their own but was dependent on the English population.
Yes, I’m talking about the dog population in Britain! (sorry this is a dog site)
Separating Two Dogs Living in different countries
My cousin has two dogs who are currently in a long distance relationship, Keks, and his girlfriend Julia. Keks is a German shepherd living in Munich and Julia is a Labrador from Birmingham. Udo my cousin, the owner of Keks, used to visit his friend David, who owns Julia. David owns an amazing property in Birmingham, which is just great for these two dogs to enjoy themselves whenever Udo was in town. Udo, who lives in Munich, was able to drive down to Birmingham with Julia whenever he wanted to. Udo and his Keks used to stay there for several weeks, even for months at
David an Englishman owns an amazing property in Birmingham, which is just great for these two dogs to enjoy themselves whenever Udo and Keks were in town. Udo, who lives in Munich, was able to drive down to Birmingham with Keks whenever he wanted to. Udo and his Keks used to stay there for several weeks, even for months at a time. However with Brexit, this might not be an option any longer!
What might happen to the two pairs after the Brexit?
Travel free within the EU? Will it stay like this or are visits going to be restricted by a certain amount of times or frequency? What will happen to Julia and Keks’ relationship if they are not able to meet each other as often as before?
Keks and Julia have become so attached to each other. Keks was even dubbed as Julia`s Romeo. Playing around, sleeping next to each other and enjoying their time together. It would be sad if those two, as well as their owner are bounded by restrictions, because of a political decision. Obviously, long distance relationships are even harder for dogs without a sense for technology.
The bottom line.
For certain now, the Visa regulations will change in the near future and it will be tougher to obtain Visas’ across countries. Owners who are fond of driving their dogs across the borders and they might have to get Passports for their furry little friend to fly across Europe! Sigh brexit!
