    You must let me know how it all goes! Good luck with it all!

    By the way, those dogs are so cute, what type are they?

      I'll def let you know how it all goes!!

      They're staffordshire bull terriers. The pic was taken when they were pups, at about 3 months old. They're 9 months now, bigger and alot naughtier. They seemed to have developed a taste for skirting boards! lol!

        I thought they were! They look just like mine did when he was a pup! He's 3 now. When he was young he also took a shine to skirting boards, my expensive shoes, carpets, the sofa... the list is endless!

              aww bless, they're so cute!! We're thinking of getting ours a playmate, but I'm not sure I could cope with the puppy side of it all again!

              Are they going in to kennels when you get married, or have you got family to look after them? All the family that would look after for us are coming to Jamaica so I think we'll have to put him in kennels for the first time! poor thing!

              as a puppy

                Ahh he looks like butter wouldn't melt. To be honest i thought by getting two they'd keep each other company, but i actually think ours egg each other on when they get up to mischief. Although seeing as yours is older he may have a calming effect, and your shoes may be safe!

                My grandad is going to look after them when we're away but they're in for a shock, no home comforts! He lives on a farm and has about ten resuce dogs (i've lost count to be honest) and they're all kept outside. Although ours won't be with them i think they'll stay in one of the stables, i don't think we'll risk them destorying his skirting board! That'll teach them, Lol! I do feel bad for leaving them though, but i'll just have to spoil them when i get back!

                hi ladies! hope you don't mind my jumping in where i don't belong, but i just wanted to say, i hope that you band together to let this company it seems at least 3 of you are/were using know that the way they are treating you is very unfair! it almost seems like they are running a show on you. make sure to let them know how big your voice is (all together), and that you have contact with a lot of other UK brides (as well as worldwide, that's a lot of lost business!) whom you will not be recommending to their business. if they don't keep to their word or contract, that is really poor form.

                PS, love the doggies! very cute!

                  Hi don't mind us we were a bit !

                  I think AnnaReeves is still in Jamaica at the mo so i'm hoping when she gets back she'll have some positive feedback on the tour company. I've kept a detailed record of all communication i've had with Thomson though incase any previous probs arise. If any other UK brides are having probs though let me know and maybe we can all form some kind group?

                    I've now only got Thomson as the travel agent for the flights/rooms we have gone direct to the hotel for the wedding. My wedding isn't until April 2009, but I will still be part of the group to complain if needed.

                    Things like transporting the dress could be interesting ...
