Moving from Austin, TX, USA to Geneva!

Hi, all! My name is Sarah Cline and I live in Austin, TX with my husband Philip and our 5-month old daughter, Charlotte (born 14 May 2007). We will be relocating to Geneva by March 2008! We're all U.S. citizens, but I grew up overseas (spent several years in Geneva when I was very small, and went to highschool in Russia), and my husband served in the Navy. We have a big bullmastiff named Strazh, whom we adore. Philip and I actually met in college in Geneva 6 years ago (anybody familiar with Webster University?), but we have been living and working in Texas for the past 3 years. We're really excited to be returning to Switzerland, but it's going to be a very different transition this time around! We're parents and a family now, not college students! I'm really looking forward to meeting new people and finding a great support network in Geneva. I'm familiar with Geneva, but I know that it will be completely different when I'm there as a mom. I already have tons of questions, and hope that this group can be a great resource, for finding both information and new friends!

Welcome to the forum! All the best for the big move, I hope everything goes smoothly. Be sure to post about everything you learn during the process as well as asking questions. I must say that I have a soft spot for Austin, TX - such a great atmosphere, different from the rest of Texas.

Yes, I have to agree, Austin TX is a special place ... particularly if your are a live music fan ... many a long evening spent in EMO's, Beerland or my personal favourite The Continental Club !

Hi Sarah,

Welcome back to Switzerland!

Just in case you haven't come across this as you prepare for your move:

Do make sure you understand the new regulations covering 'dangerous dogs' in force in Geneva... unfortunately, your bull mastiff will fall under the canton's BSL.

An overview of the restrictions with which you will have to comply can be found here:

Best to contact the cantonal veterinary office if you have any questions.

Best of luck to you and your pooch.

(Love mastiffs - wonderful dogs. )
