"We've come back to see the dogs. Because of the ridiculous quarantine rules, the little ones and the big ones have to have jabs (injections) then wait a whole six months before they're deemed fit enough (well, rabies free) to join us in England," Contactmusic quoted him as having written on his official blog.
