Foggy morning in Scotland

on the road with Animalcouriers

From Spain to Scotland: a family of 5 dogs and 7 cats

Animalcouriers met up with Annette in Torrevieja, Spain, to collect her 12 pets for their journey to Livingstone in Scotland. We then scooped up three young pups bred in Scotland, heading to new owners in England.

Five dogs

On the way to Scotland

On our way north from Torrevieja, we stayed at the Calamocha Hotel in the Spanish province of Aragon.

Heading south with three puppies

Having delivered Annette’s family safely to their Scottish home, we then rounded up three puppies for the journey south.

Super nine-week-old Pointer pup Zola, chosen by Tania in Surrey. Zola was bred by Pamela, who lives slightly north of the Trossachs.

      They were very happy to meet their pups! Courier Richard had a lot of fun staying in the rather wonderful B&Bs 😀

    Annette must be a saint with all of those lovely pups! I am hoping that Pretty treats me as well in my old age as some of your travelers are treated in theirs!!
    Gorgeous scenery this trip, too.
