Animalcouriers stopped in Valencia and had lovely evening beach walks with the dogs. The next day, we continued north towards France, stopping in Barcelona to collect Donnata’s rabbit Elspeth. Donnata is moving to Scotland to work, and was very concerned to make sure Elspeth could go too. So Elspeth is travelling with us, and will homeboard with us in Surrey for a little while, so that Donnata can get to Scotland without worrying about her. We’ll meet up with Donnata in a few weeks’ time for a handover.
In the Girona area we called in to collect Odie at a dog pound in Tossa de Mar. Kate, who lives in Sussex in the UK, is a good friend to these dogs, raising funds for them and finding them new homes. Sensibly she focuses on one dog at a time, at a rate of about one a month. Her daughter lives in Tossa de Mar and is also closely involved. Odie is the latest lucky dog to have been found a new home in the UK.
Last night we stayed near Narbonne, where we hooked up with Jack Russell Jack and Pug Ernie, both of whom are on their way to rejoin their families in the UK.
