On our way towards Åre to meet up with Pippa and her family of three little dogs, we drove through the national park that’s famous for its bears and moose.

Although we didn’t see any of those, we did marvel at the stunning, snowy landscapes we passed through.

By the time we reached Pippa, a fine snowstorm was in progress! Poor Pippa, having to organise everything under those conditions.

Pippa is leaving Åre and returning to Manchester, and it’s Animalcouriers’ job to transport her beloved dogs for her.
