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.

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

Portraits of previous owners perhaps? We certainly knew we were in a pet-friendly place.
Mind you, service was a bit slow!

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.
