on the road with Animalcouriers

Delivering pets in Spain and Portugal, and meeting new UK-bound passengers

Animalcouriers headed south following a night in Narbonne, reuniting pets from the UK with their families, and meeting others who’re heading back with us to the UK.

Tirean

In Murcia we met friendly Tirean, who’s named after a character in a book. Tirean and family are off to spend a couple of weeks in the UK. They were due to drive, but their car suddenly developed a fault. So plans were changed at the last minute — humans are travelling by air, and Tirean is travelling with us.

Tirean is quite a character dog

Bozie Bojangles

It was pouring with rain in La Cala de Mijas when we met up with Espie and Kris, and their cat Bozie, in a supermarket car park. They got out of their car with Bozie stuffed up Kris’s jumper, saying, Bozie doesn’t like the rain much! Heavy rain, busy car park, rush hour traffic — and Bozie was calm as anything.

Nellie

We carried on along the coast, down to Estepona, where we reunited gorgeous Egyptian cat Nellie with Simone.

delivering pets — attentive Nellie towards the end of her journey — we will miss her chatter!

Walks and views

Imagine our horror when we peeked into Benji's bedroom, and couldn't see him! Then we watched him slowly emerge from underneath his bed, where he'd been having a lovely cosy nap. The expression on Benji's face seems to say, what's all the fuss about?

We enjoyed wonderful views on leaving Estepona — here you can just about spot Gibraltar in the distance

An amazing sunrise greeted us when we headed to the beach for morning dog walks

The Andalusian coast features a great many 'torres' like this one — lookout towers, from where the locals used to keep an eye out for invaders from across the water

Ben, Sam, Cushy and Smudge

From Estepona in Spain we continued around the coast and crossed the border into Portugal. There was great excitement when we reunited dogs Ben and Sam, and cats Cushy and Smudge, with their owners in Lagos in the Algarve region.

Ben and Sam dashed about, wagging their tails, not sure who to jump on first!
