It looks like that doesn't it? So they get them used to being in the carrier so it doesn't seem so scary...I'm very puzzled that if Emma isn't going to Switzerland until 2021, why would a vet be saying RIGHT NOW that she won't be able to fly? 4 months is a long time from now. I don't know if we know exactly how old she is, but she's younger than Toro. They need to give her a little time. If they don't want to put her in the cargo area, I still think they could possibly give her a mild sedative and she could be in the cabin with Tree.

Here in the U.S. they have a special service for people who won't put their pets on commercial airlines, and they fly them on small planes. It probably costs a fortune, and I don't know if something like that exists for international service.

I hope it helps them both to get accustomed to a carrier. If it fits under the seat in front of your feet, the dog/cat can be on the plane but don't know about Swiss Air regs. There was a question put out for input from anyone who has traveled Swiss Air with a dog or sending a dog alone on a long haul flight. I would not put any pet in the cargo hold. The use of a sedative works to keep the dog calm unless it's a service dog. Don't know how long they can stay sedated, though.
I thought that Shoma's mother was going to Switzerland in October (?) with Toro and Miss Emma would go in January. If so, Emma would either have to travel alone or Tree would have to go. I don't have a link to that and it may have just been conversations that were criss-crossing speculating this past summer.

Ah such worries. Sorry, don't mean to be turning this into a Toro chan, Emma chan thread! I love them both though!

I'd rather focus on this wonderful compilation of video clips of Sho and Stephane that was put together. Great tribute to their partnership! Thank you to the kind poster.

Well, they are an extension of Shoma so I'm not bothered by doggo talk.

I just wish Shoma and Stephane had started 2019 together even though some things work out for the best.

Uh oh. What did they do now?! Like I said before, Tree is going to be very busy watching and caring for 2 puppies.

There are going to be some great photo choices for the new calendar, especially ones with the teal jacket!

Some of the series of photos Itsuki posted on IG story of sweet Emma. What a doll baby! Thanks to lena vaev for these.

https://twitter.com/_vaev_/status/1304058287579566080


Surprised to see Itsuki uploaded so many photos of Emma.
I imagine Shoma follows his Instagram and he says “Emma-chan, kawaii:love:

I'll be here all day looking at Shophotos while trying to figure out how to buy the calendar and photobook from my country :laugh:

I’m looking forward to watching Shoma and Stéphane’s Upload Channel this weekend.:luv17:
Please, please, please.🤞🤞🤞

Matana.(See you)👋

Or is it IMPOSSIBLE to choose?! :bang: What I love the most -- last year fans said they should make a book of photos, so this year, they have responded by making a book. I love that they listen to the fans. On the You Tube channel, many of us said "Can you put the English please?!", and they put the English subtitles. It's so wonderful that they respond to our requests!

Fresh from Switzerland, a new video delivery from Shoma of his first training days!!!!!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3sfTilUFNU&feature=youtu.be

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I laughed so much throughout the video. Shoma "translating" English, LOL, surviving through guessing. THE 3LOOP ATTEMPTS LMAO. Oh, Shoma. I have no idea why but his starfishes make it look so fun, even when you're falling :laugh:

I'm so, so happy he made it safely back to Switzerland :luv17:

^^^How fortunate are we?! Love reading the stuff about English. Slowly, slowly he will learn as time goes on. Guessing can be a good thing! :laugh2:...Great to see him back at Shompery. He'll get back into his routine again, and I'm sure things will fall into place. So he really didn't go ALONE to Switzerland. His manager went with him. It's that he's living alone. Hopefully he doesn't put any wet laundry in the dresser drawers, as he has been known to do! :luv17: :eekn:

Translation of the written introduction to the video. Probably done by his manager?

^^^His dry sense of humor and the fact that he doesn't take himself too seriously crack me up! I love this GIF that looks like a sliding contest, and then of course the ever-present "V" sign!

Haha. I thought I read that once he falls, he likes to linger on the ice before getting back up.

Guessing his manager is with him until him mother can make the trip? Glad that he's there. He feeds our souls by sharing a glimpse of Shoma when he is and is not skating. He's usually with him when he tapes his YT channel from that room that looks like a dorm room in a bad summer camp.

If Shoma had been in Switzerland more this year, I think his English would have moved leaps and bounds by being around it all those months since he joined the team.

He has a charming and funny personality that before he left for Switzerland we did not get to see. He looks like he's having fun being back to his home base with friends.
