Animalcouriers collected chocolate Lab Alfie from Ian’s kennels, where he’s has been a regular visitor for the past six years.

Alfie is off to live in Ireland, and Ian will miss him. Alfie says he’ll miss Ian too, but is so excited about going home to his mum that it’s a hard call!

His mum is pleased to be seeing Alfie soon, and has asked us to give him special hugs from her.

It’s hardly surprising Alfie is so popular, he’s a great dog and very handsome with it.

Alfie and Ian say goodbye
