Gorgeous Husky duo Niebla and Trueno are travelling with Animalcouriers all the way to Aberdeen in Scotland. Hailing from Madrid in Spain, they are an incredibly friendly pair with calm, gentle characters who love human attention. Their coats are thick and soft to the touch, and they’ll doubtless be glad of them in the colder Scottish weather. Niebla is Spanish for ‘fog’ and Trueno means ‘thunder’ — we experienced both of those weather conditions this morning!

Cats Humbug, Merlin and Whisky have also joined our trip. They seem to prefer spending their time in a heap — that’s how they’re travelling and it’s also how we found them (under the duvet!) when we went to collect them. It was quite a scene, couriers and cats scampering around as we tried to persuade them they were going on a great adventure! All three are rescue cats, who’re moving with their very loving owner to the UK from south-west France.

Super-cute Django and Gola ventured out this morning to watch the comings and goings in the van. Although they're a bit timid in front of the camera, they get up to all sorts when we're not looking!
