With all our passengers from Portugal on board, Animalcouriers crossed the border into Spain and headed to Madrid. We met up with Aurelia to collect a very happy and bouncy young Felipe. Felipe travelled with us last month to spend Christmas in Madrid with all the family. His owners, Sergio and Barbara, are already back in London and are anxiously awaiting his arrival. Aurelia tells us everyone had a lovely festive time, and Felipe clearly agrees.
From Madrid we headed to Tarragona to collect Chihuahua Lugotti, who’s relocating with his owners to Middlesex in the UK. Both his dads and their friend came to see him safely on his way.
We then drove up the coast to Barcelona to meet Katy and her cats Pere and Vella. Katy and her husband are both artists who split their time between Spain and Sussex for work reasons. Katy and the cats are now off for an extended stay in Sussex so that all the family can be together for a while.
It was then just another hour or so to Blanes to collect German Shepherd Dog Thor. His owner David is already in Southampton, and ‘granddad’ Rafa has been taking care of Thor in the meantime. David tells us he’s very much looking forward to being reunited with his dog.
