When we reached Burgos in northern Spain last night the dogs on board were ready for a long walk and lots of playtime. Later in the evening four new arrivals joined our trip.

This morning the vet came to give everyone on board a checkup, so it was time for a full roll call.

Snoopy was first as he's always impatient for a run around and a cuddle. He's enjoying the trip and has made some new friends.

Russell is enjoying meeting all the new dogs as they come on board and it seems to be cheering him up. In fact, he seems about five years younger and is even being nice to our feline passengers — a bit of a surprise as in the past we always had to keep him and Jack well away from any cats. Here he is doing his favourite thing when out on a walk — sniffing!

Pollock is an awesome dog to travel with. Although we'd been warned he's quite a nervous character, he's been an absolute angel so far on the trip — gentle, brave and a pleasure to be with.

This superb character is Brown, who settled in well as soon as he got on board yesterday afternoon. He enjoys running around, jumping and playing with sticks — a true Boxer!

Magnificent German Shepherd Dog Laia joined us near Madrid and is travelling with Animalcouriers to the south of England. She's great fun to walk as she loves to play — giant fir cones proved irresistible this morning!

Beagle Chesier, who joined us last night, is a very jolly member of the party. He made his presence well known and insisted on sniffing everyone in true Beagle style.

Handsome Rocco has an adorable personality and has been winning hearts wherever he goes. He loves playing and rushing around with his new best friend Nemo and is proving to be a very brave international traveller.

Little Nemo is a real cutie who's probably even smaller than any of the cats on board. But what he lacks in size, he makes up for in character. He and Rocco do everything together.

Sorry, a very dark photo of a very dark cat — this is Barry who's very proud of his name tag hanging on his bedroom door. Unlike Bolinhas who ate hers last night!

Here is Bolinhas herself, who enjoys supervising and passing comment on the dogs as they go past for their walks.
