On the way back from delivering the fabulous furry family of three dogs and four cats to their new French home in Brittany, Animalcouriers headed to Caen to collect Chihuahua Sucre.

Sucre had travelled from Spain with his owners, but when they reached the port of Caen, it was discovered that Sucre’s pet passport wasn’t valid for entry to the UK. So he had to stay in kennels until the 21-day period after his rabies vaccination had elapsed. Fortunately, the timing worked out perfectly for Sucre to travel back with us to the UK this week.

Courier S and Sucre took the overnight ferry to Portsmouth, then carried on by road to Bristol, where they met up with Sucre’s delighted owners for the last leg of the journey to their new home in Wales.

A valiant try for 'longest tongue' but sorry, Sucre, you probably get the wooden spoon!
