Ben the Rhodesian Ridgeback is travelling with his constant companion, Cashew the Chihuahua. Despite the disparity in their sizes, these two are inseparable.

From a rural location near Aberdeen in Scotland, they headed south to Heathrow airport, then on to Sydney, Australia. They were lucky not to have their flight delayed by the volanic ash cloud that’s drifted from South America and causing airport closures in Sydney. In fact, they were probably on the last plane to land before the flight ban came into force.

Best buddies

Cashew. Doesn't do walks, but insists on being carried so that she doesn't miss out on anything

A soulful look from Ben
