While couriers J and M deal with the situation in Turkey, the UK-bound Animalcouriers trip from Portugal and Spain is underway.

An accident on the motorway in Portugal caused some initial delays, as courier I had to criss-cross through southern Portugal on minor roads to deliver Toffee and Fudge.

Once they were safely back with their owners, he started the UK-bound leg of his journey by collecting dynamic Dachshund Dario in Cadiz.

With Dario safely on board, courier I headed to San Roque near Gibralter to collect two cats, Cattage and Rascal, who quickly settled down in their travel compartments and are taking the journey in their stride.

Dario loves his walkies

Dario all tired out
