Switzerland has an amazing public transportation system (SBB.ch). We made the conscious decision when we moved here that we were going to use the trains, buses, and boats exclusively instead of owning a car. "But what about your dog?" you may be asking. Well, dogs can ride public transportation with a half-fare ticket unless the dog is small, then it is free! And as luck would have it, our Smidgey is just under the 30 cm height maximum and fits in a carrier, basket or other suitable container. On public transportation she's considered hand luggage!
Below is my poem about Smidgey's Train-ing experience:
