Yesterday Animalcouriers set off from Portsmouth on the sea crossing to Santander in north-west Spain. We’re travelling with Brittany Ferries on the Pont-Aven boat.

On board are sweet Pekinese pair Casper and Roxi. Once we reach dry land, we’ll be heading all the way to Portugal to collect Toffee and Fudge.

At the check-in for the onboard kennels on the ferry. There are 53 dogs on this ferry crossing!

Casper and Roxi have kennel 15, which is clean and spacious with plenty of room for their beds

Apologies for our absence from the blogosphere – we’re back and looking forward to catching up with everyone!
