Winston, who’s travelling with us from Solihull to Northern Cyprus, is everything you’d expect a lovely black Labrador to be.

He was very keen to get into the Animalcouriers van β€” perhaps someone had told him about all the new places he’ll be visiting over the next few days? And his behaviour at the vet was exemplary.
