Are you guys in the military in Japan? My friend is moving there on Thursday (okanowa or however you spell it). Her husband is in the Army I believe.

I just noticed it in your siggie.

Sorry I almost didn't see this. Yes, my husband is in the Air Force and we are stationed here in Okinawa for 3 years. It is a really lovely place. We've been here for just over 1 year. If your friends have questions PM me and I will give you my email address to give them. ;D

We never got stationed in the Far East during my time in the Army - wish we had. I got to visit Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam but never Okinawa. All of my Marine and Air Force friends who were there said it is beautiful.

Thanks to your husband for his service - and thanks to you, too. Lynn and I know first hand how much of a sacrifice military families make. :D

How does the dog thing work when you get shuffled from the US to Japan?

The dog thing is a little bit of a headache. Both of mine I rescued here so I didn't have to deal with the import of them. They are under quarantine for quite a while. But that doesn't mean they don't lead normal lives. They just have to go to the vet for testing frequently and are not supposed to have contact with other dogs though. However, I think pretty much everyone ignores a lot of this. The Japan govt. is really paranoid about rabies and distemper since they don't have any cases of it here I guess. Dogs have to get a bunch of shots before making the trip also. I am happy that it is not like that when going back to the states. :)
Jakeysmom- is your friends dog big or little, do you know much about it? Also just curious, how old are they and do they have any kids? We are 26 with no kids. :)
