A sweet young woman who helps me with chores had her visa appeal denied and has to return to Brazil. Her biggest grief was leaving her sweet white dog. She looked sadly at Jake, our Collie, and asked if he had a passporta. “What?” I asked, thinking I had misunderstood the Portuguese word. “Passport.” “No,” I answered gently, thinking she was unhinged with grief, then googled it on the off chance. And yes, you can indeed now get a passport for pets. What do you know?
