We crossed the border from Portugal to Spain where our first stop was Manilva to collect a lovely pair of dogs, Bobby and Chaudi. These two firm friends belong to Bob and Caroline, who’ve moved to Carmarthen in Wales, and now the dogs are off to join them.
At a shelter in Granada we collected pretty Alana, a young blind cat who’s lucky enough to be joining Ann and Trevor’s amazing household in Ireland.
We met Dave in Nerja, whose wife Christine has already travelled back to England. Dave has been holding the fort, and looking after the family’s two cats and two dogs until we could collect them. Also in Nerja we were fortunate to catch up with Chocolate Lab Oscar, who travelled with us as a pup four years ago from his breeder in France. Oscar invited us to stay the night, and enjoyed watching all the comings and goings around our van, offering words of advice whenever he felt they were needed.
