Pamuk, Ella, Hilmi and Charlie flew into Heathrow airport from Turkey yesterday afternoon. They’re boarding at a local kennels for a few days before being reunited with their owners in time for Christmas. Although their flight wasn’t affected by the dark, foggy conditions, it did mean that beautiful black Hilmi didn’t show up in the photos, unfortunately!

Meanwhile, little Bertie had a 4.00 am check-in at Gatwick this morning for his flight to Faro in Portugal, where he’ll be spending his Christmas holidays. So he stayed the night with courier S where he quickly made friends with housedog Hugo, the two of them playing well together and sharing toys.
