Animalcouriers are transporting a family of four cats and two dogs to their summer holiday home at Grasse, near Monaco.

It was an early start for them all when we collected them this morning, but they quickly settled into the trip and all six have been beautifully behaved.

Also on our trip to Grasse is Golden Retriever Bella, whose quiet and gentle nature endears her to everyone.
