A few other points:

First, Portugal probably has some restrictions on pets being brought into the country as well.

Second, really, really unlikely as the person who did this would then have to get their boat back to the US from Portugal.

Third, the best time to cross the Atlantic, west-to-east, is about this time of year. Anything after June runs the risk of getting caught out in a hurricane.

Fourth, they would need to have crew, unless you and your three companions know how to sail.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
