Having delivered all their passengers from the UK, couriers M and J collected Pipi the cat from Italy.

Heading to the UK with five dogs from Spain

On board as we head towards the UK are five dogs from Spain. They're a great bunch of playful, friendly characters who all love their walks. Rocco In the port town of Tarifa — a mecca for sand surfers — we met up with Franciska, who arrived the night before from Morocco with lovely little Rocco, who she rescued from the streets. Franciska was working in Morocco when she found herself adopted by Rocco, and couldn't leave her behind. It's quite complicated transporting dogs from Morocco, and they'd had to wait a while for Rocco's travel documents to come through. [...]
