Barney is a 14-year-old Rottweiler-Newfoundland cross — a grand age for such a large dog. He and his Russian Hamster siblings spent a few days homeboarding with courier J before setting off for Pisa in Italy, where their grandma will be looking after them for a while. The two hamsters are incredibly energetic, taking travelling right on the chin as they scamper and roll around playing the whole time. Seems to be wearing Barney out!
Treacle the cat is a very chilled out chap, who's settled in well to the journey. He sits up in his bed looking all around him and observing all the comings and goings in our van. Treacle's on his way to Zurich with Animalcouriers, where he should arrive later today.
