Darling Cocker Spaniel Gwen was ready and waiting for Animalcouriers this morning in Amarante, near Porto.

She’s moving to Cheshire where she’ll be reunited with her owner. We think it’s probably a good idea as she seems very taken with the idea of eating little children, and there’s an all-too-tempting playschool directly opposite where she’s been living!

We’ve now crossed the border into Spain and all our passengers are gently snoozing.
