    My FI and I are wanting to have our baby(puppy) Daphne as our flower girl but don't really know if Hawaii allows dogs to come over without going into quarantine. Has anyone else brought there dog our happen to know the laws behind this? Thanks so much!

      Hey there! There is a 5-days-or-less quarantine, but from what I read on the link included, the dog must be at least 10 months of age. It also sounds like you must fly in to Honolulu and plan to go to Maui from there. Also keep in mind how you think little Daphne would fare alone in cargo for about 6+ hours (my little guy would likely never go for that lol!). We had thought of bringing our little Scooter along last year but decided it would just be too much trouble and not fair to him since airlines do not allow pets in cabin on flights to Hawaii.

      Some things you can consider if you want to include Daphne in your wedding but decide against bringing her with--we had a custom cake topper done with Scooter on it through Etsy seller lynnslittlecreations. Another idea I've seen of others on the forum is making # signs that they hung around their dogs neck and took pictures of, then used the pictures for table numbers. Do a search on the forum of pets, you're sure to find many pet lovers who've come up with other ideas, too!

      Good Luck!!

        yea when my parents transferred their dog from Alabama to Phoenix, he was sick for days! and also began to develop breathing problems. When they took him to the vet the doctor said this happens a lot with dogs when traveling since the cabin pressure can be much more damaging to a dog than to a human and of course the airborne diseases circulating. It took a good few months before my parents dog recovered from that mess. I think its a great idea to incorporate a dog into the ceremony, but take into mind the flight problem.
