All eight dogs who journeyed together on that wintry trans-European odyssey have now been lovingly forever homed.
Couriers J and M took Labrador pups Darcy and Magic on the ferry from Harwich to Esbjerg in Denmark, en route to their final destination in Sweden.

Courier J tried hard to get a photo but it was all a blur. Until Jilly produced a whistle from her pocket and blew a signal. The dogs sat down immediately and looked at her. "Wish I could do that," said [...]
This cute pair travelled from South Africa to Lamballe in France seven months ago, where they had to wait in kennels before they could enter the UK. Yesterday was a very exciting time for everyone as they were finally reunited with their owners.
