Collections in Scotland: PJ and Belle heading to Spain; and Teko and Lola relocating to Surrey and South Wales

Collections in Scotland: PJ and Belle heading to Spain; and Teko and Lola relocating to Surrey and South Wales

Animalcouriers delivered the six cats from Cyprus — Aslan, Boo, Pepper, Scat, Mia and Kara — to their temporary cattery in the Durham area, then continued north into Scotland. We reunited personal protection dog Omar with his family in South Lanarkshire, and delivered young Dolly to her ecstatic new owners at their picturesque home in Fife.

The first passengers to join us on the journey back down south were PJ and Belle. These two lovely characters will be travelling all the way to Spain with us to join their owners, Lesley and David, on the Mijas Costa. PJ and Belle met us in the delightful village of Echt, near Aberdeen, where Lesley and David used to run the shop and post office before leaving for Spain. The dogs were escorted by their granny Anne and family friend Linda. Both ladies fancied hitching a lift towards the warmer climes themselves, but unfortunately we’ll be a bit full on our continental trip!

Before leaving Scotland we also called in to Livingstone at the request of Corgi Rescue to collect Teko and Lola. Unfortunately a change in personal circumstances means their owner can no longer take care of them, so asked Corgi Rescue to help find suitable new Corgi-friendly homes for them. Teko is heading to Surrey and Lola’s new home is in South Wales.

Wide sunny skies as we cross the Firth of Forth — the unseasonably warm weather is giving Belle and PJ a chance to acclimatise, ready for Spain!

      It is a great shame that they do have to be separated but they’re jolly lucky to have found new very loving homes.

    Were the Corgis together before being sent to separate new homes? PJ and Belle are really cute. They should love Spain. Dolly is lucky to have Lucky for a kitty companion in her new home. 😉

      Yes, they were together. We suspect Lucky will have told Dolly just how they’re going to get along together 😉

    All beautiful passengers! I hope the Corgies are able to find a good home.

    So they are having unseasonably warm weather over there too! It was 77 here yesterday. Not even May. The table grapes broke bud first. The pinot was a bit more wary.

    What a lovely bunch you had on this trip. I can’t pick a favorite this time around, except perhaps the daffies. 😉

    Clearly Miss Rhonda and I aren’t the only one who want to be stowaways

    Corgis are so adorable… Watching them trying to “jump” just makes me double over with laughter! My oldest daughter has one; she loves him to pieces.

We'd love to hear from you
