Animalcouriers collected the wonderfully named Lemmy and Igor near Brussels, to take them to their new home in Warwickshire. When we arrived these canny cats knew something was up, and had gone into hiding. Fortunately their owner Ineke managed to track them down and suddenly they were in their baskets ready to transfer to our van, where they seem to have settled in well and are taking the trip calmly.

Travelling from Spain are French Bulldog Panceta and her companion Kiwi. Panceta is a very busy, robust dog who enjoys dragging us round on her walks, while Kiwi is less sure about walking in all this grim weather and prefers to be carried!

Somewhat confusingly we have two dogs on board called Coco, but luckily they could hardly look more different!

This Coco is a tiny Shih Tzu with the biggest dog tag we've ever seen! Travelling from Spain to London, she's very sweet, affectionate and cuddly.

And this Coco is a Shar Pei. She's the apple of her owner Charlotte's eye. Here she is looking very regal on her comfy throne.
