Jack Russell Terriers Paco and Maya travelled with their owners from Italy on the overnight sleeper train, to meet up with Animalcouriers at Charles de Gaulle airport yesterday morning.

Also waiting for us at the airport was handsome ginger tabby Garfield. Although quite happy to have travelling companions, we made sure he couldn’t see them and they couldn’t see him, to avoid anyone getting overexicted!

We all headed straight from the Paris airport to the French port of Calais where we crossed the Channel — and by early evening Paco and Maya were already at their new UK home in Wimbledon. With both Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park practically on their doorstep, these two lucky hounds have lots of lovely walks to look forward to.

Meanwhile Garfield home boarded with Animalcouriers last night and today will be reunited with his owner at their new home in Oxfordshire.
