Hi everyone, I'm Klopfer (Inga) from Hamburg, Germany. I'm a proud "mommy" of my two "kids": Bulldog-Mix Smokey (3 years old) and cat Sylvester (5 years old).
Smokey was born in Jacksonville, FL, USA, he's my Sunshine-boy! I've never wanted to have a dog (I was badly bitten by a german shepherd when I was a child), but when I saw him I wanted to have HIM!

Thank you for the warm welcome! It's a nice forum and a great place to be!

How did you get the pup from Florida,were you on holiday??
Jap, we#ve spent our holidays there. 2 friends of ours lived there for two years and we've visited them. My friend wanted to have a third dog so we went to the local shelter. I have never been a dog person before but when I saw Smokey I fell in love with his sad, dark brown eyes. It was the best decicion ever to take him with us. It was really expensive to get him to Germany because we couldn't take him with us in our booked flight :( We were flying via Manchester and you could only bring animals to the UK if you fly via Heathrow or Gatwick (2 London airports). So he had to stay at our friends for 2 weeks while we were back in Germany. He missed his flight in Newark so he had to stay a night in the shelter in Newark. It was a nightmare when the shelter called us at 3am local time...

But finally he arrived at Hamburg airport :lovestruck:
