Cheeky chappies Ike and JJ met their new owners for the first time on Irish soil. We could see straight away it was going to be a two-way street of love for these Swedish Vallhunds!

In Chesterfield, Desy and her owner were over the moon to be reunited after a trek from Italy and a couple of weeks apart.

Meanwhile Shar Pei Coco, who travelled from Barcelona, had an unexpected short stay in France! The reason for that was that she had two passports — rabies vaccination in one, and tick and flea treatment in the other. She boarded with the lovely Madame Fermon in Calais while her tick and flea treatment was normalised; and Animalcouriers popped back across the Channel for her today.
