You may remember Leo and Lexi, a pair of bouncy young Labradors we transported for Tom from Gibraltar to Ireland last summer.

Tom’s hobby is shooting, and Leo and Lexi are to be his retrievers. So they’veย been staying at a special training kennels in Ireland to learn how to do it.

When we asked Tom if they’ve been good pupils, he replied that he’d really enjoyed being out with them. He felt, however, that Lexi was a little less enthusiastic than her brother. That’s because the last time he was out with them, he felt a weight on his left foot, and when he called Lexi to fetch, he looked to his left and saw she was sound asleep on his foot! When he looked to his right, there was Leo, eager to go.

Now they’re on their way back to Gibraltar, travelling with Animalcouriers.
