After a long day on the road, Animalcouriers found a lovely Logis at Vaison la Romaine in Provence, where we stayed the night.
The next morning, our first stop was in Antibes, to reunite Pip and Tigger with Rob and Helen. Both dogs were hugely pleased to see Rob who walked up the hill to meet us.
We then crossed the border into Italy to reunite Labradoodle Arya with Stephanie and Luke. Last year Arya flew from Italy to England but nearly didn’t make the plane as the cargo-handlers at Venice airport decided that the number of suitcases mean there was no room for Arya in the hold. It was a nail-biting time, as Luke and Stephanie were already on the plane. In the end, the airline’s head office in London had to intervene, and Arya was given priority over some of those Armani suits! This year, all was much calmer as Arya travelled by road.
Sonia, her mum and her cousin drove from Pisa to Lucca meet us and collect Sonia’s guinea pig, Lulu. The whole family was delighted to see Lulu again.
And while in Lucca we also delivered family of four, Biscuit, Timmy, Moomin and Giacomo, to Barry and his wife Miho. They’ve been splitting their time between London and Italy but as their pet population expanded, they were finding it harder to spend time in Italy. The solution? Move the pets to Italy!
