I saw some tiny puppies this afternoon that you could fit into your pocket. Don't know that show up on x-ray though at an airport

I have seen a cat come through an X-ray at the airport in Rochester in NY, a baby (YES A BABY!) come through the X-ray in Phoenix AZ. (The parents put the babyseat down on the belt while they were removing their shoes...and swoosh...there went the baby.) I never saw a dog though...;)

How does one travel with a dog? There must be weeks or months of quarantine involved every time you change countries, no?

No. A lot depends on the size of the dog. The "toy" sized dogs can fit easily under the seat in front of you on the plane. Small dogs can accompany you as "carry-on" for most modes of transportation. There will be a charge (fee) for your dog accompnaying you though.

Most countries require proof of vaccinations - rabies and distemper. A health certificate signed by your veterinarian is also required. As long as these documents are in order, and you are "touring" the country, quarantine is usually not required. It comes into play when you are planning to relocate and/or set up residence. Checking the requirements of each country before leaving on your trip is recommended so all their requirements are accommodated. Some countries do not aloow a pet to travel with you, hence verification of restrictions. You can request your veterinarians to do the requirement research since they do have access to certain information your may not be able to find on your own. Most countries will not allow you to stay longer than 15-30 days without a quarantine period.
