Meeting up in Brindisi, and Wendy is now on board

Courier M crossed from Greece to Italy. On arriving at the port of Brindisi he met up with courier S and all the dogs had a good leg stretch. An Animalcouriers convoy is now travelling north through Italy and on towards the UK. Joining the trip today was Wendy, a last-minute addition to our passenger list. She's been in the loving care of her owner's parents near Mount Vesuvius and is now off to rejoin her family in the UK.

Bubble, Agapi, Eleni, Bolo and Sienna from Filozoikos join our UK-bound trip

They had just lost their dog, who looked a lot like her. One of the shelter volunteers, Poppy, offered to foster Bubble to get her [...]
