We took the Archie and Oliver to see Maira the vet to have their parasite treatments. (Pepito and Maggie’s treatments were up to date so they didn’t have to come in to the surgery.)

Oliver’s passport had run out of space for recording parasite treatments, so the Greek vet had made the entry elsewhere in the document. We felt that probably wouldn’t do at Calais, so Maira made Oliver a new passport — better safe than sorry.
