Our second crossing from Calais to the UK includes Ares and Pavlina, the last of the two rescue dogs we brought over from Filozokios Shelter in Athens in December.

Also on board are Angela’s Actioncats from Amsterdam — Tara, Nuna and Catlin — who we collected in December.

In addition, we have Harvey, whom we took to Mallorca last August, plus four other dogs who are all heading for London: Biby, Mikka, Taiga and Beba.

And last but not least, Tiger the ferret.

We also had the pleasure of meeting up with our good friends from Traveldog. There was lots of chatter and plenty of jokes. We thought it very brave of them, as Spaniards, to withstand the high winds!
