After reuniting pets with their owners in Spain, we crossed the border into Portugal to collect a fine group of passengers who’re travelling to the UK with us.
On the Algarve we met Cocker Spaniel Pluto at Estoi. He’s been through some tough times in his short life, but now he’s off to live happily ever after with Joy in Surrey. Lena and her friend, who’ve been looking after Pluto, were in tears as they said goodbye to him. We were pleased to reassure them that Joy is very excited that he’s on his way to her.
Baco and Shuba
Next we called in on our friends Alan and Heather at Barking Mad Kennels, also on the Algarve, to collect a pair of reprobate pups. These young Portuguese Water Dogs were adopted by Alan’s sister Anne when she visited Alan and Heather last month. These lucky pups’ new home is in Belfast.
We collected gorgeous four-month-old Jecca from Emma in Saõ Luis. Emma runs a riding business and looks after horses and dogs with her partner. Jecca is on her way to Emma’s mum Angela, who used to live in Saõ Luis but is now back in the UK.
Sushi and Sky
We met up with Gisela’s dad at her address, where her cats Sushi and Sky were looking out for us from the window with their bags all packed and ready. Gisela left for London yesterday morning, and it won’t be long before her adorable cats join her there.
Little Laura joined us in Salvaterra de Magos. Her owners have gone on ahead to get settled in Cambridge, and asked us to transport Laura to join them.
