Dogs on board from Spain and Portugal: Bolt, Bingo, Smokey, Saphira, Benji, Molly and Pipoca

Dogs on board from Spain and Portugal: Bolt, Bingo, Smokey, Saphira, Benji, Molly and Pipoca

Emer’s Shih Tzu Bolt joined our trip in Spain. This gentle fellow was brought to us in Marbella by Emer’s gardener. Bolt really enjoys a snuffle about while out walking.

In Portugal Animalcouriers collected Bingo and Smokey in the Castelo Branco area. These two lively dogs belong to Ben and his family, who have relocated to Doncaster. Antonio, Justine and Joanne have been taking care of them while the new home in the UK is prepared for their arrival.

Glamorous Cocker Spaniel Saphira also got on board near Castelo Branco. She hopped confidently into her travel compartment while Gisella told us all about her. Gisella and her husband are leading breeders of Cocker Spaniels, Doberman and Rough Collies.

Then we headed off to find Benji, who has been in the care of Ana. But our GPS wasn’t able to find the right address. Driving around, we spotted a woman walking a dog up the hill. Has to be Benji, we felt. So we wound down the window and found we had indeed come upon Ana and Benji.

Livia’s pretty little Chihuahuas Molly and Pipoca have also joined the journey. Within just half an hour we could hear these two letting the rest of our pasengers know that they may be the smallest on board, but they’re definitely in charge!

    I first thought Saphira is Molly the Wally, travelling inDOGnito :o)… but wait there is still a Molly on board :o) Glad the Beatles.. or Beagles are on tour again :o)

      He he – we think Saphira is a much younger version of Molly. The Beagles on tour – they had as much fun as the human counterparts!

    Nice positioning of the tree in the first photo. 🙂 Was raised with Cocker Spaniels. Tickle was my constant companion when I wasn’t at school. They are beautiful animals. –Curt

      We’re always amazed we don’t get more of those odd juxtapositions in our photos. Ah, we’re rather partial to them too (have two, brother and sister) – great companions.
