Portugal with view to Africa

on the road with Animalcouriers

Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and Greece, here we come

Concurrent Animalcouriers trips to Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and Greece are underway, with cats, dogs and a rabbit heading to a variety of destinations.

Fluffy

Gorgeous Fluffy belongs to Michelle and her husband, who live in Tarifa — about as far south in Spain as you can get. One day, young Fluffy got out of the garden and went for a wander. She was lucky enough to be found by Kathy and Adrian between Tarifa and Algeciras — so she’d gone for quite a long wander!

Concerned for her safety, Kathy and Adrian decided to take her home with them — but their home is in Gijon, about as far north in Spain as you can get.

When a vet examined Fluffy, he found her microchip and owner’s details. So Kathy contacted Michelle, who asked Animalcouriers to collect Fluffy and bring her home.

So glad to be back together — Fluffy and Michelle. What an adventure Fluffy had!

Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and Greece: While in our care, Fluffy proved to be a nosey and curious dog, so we're not surprised she enjoys exploring. Perhaps she was inspired by this stunning view from her home above Tarifa, looking over the Gibraltar Straits with Africa in the distance.

Foxee, Imbi and Nero

This fine feline trio are decamping from Surrey to Malaga for an extended break. They belong to Hayley, whose house is undergoing extensive renovations at the moment. Hayley very wisely decided to vacate the premises with her cats and her eight-month-old baby, to spend some quality time with mum Patricia in Malaga.

Billy Bean, Bella and Peeluce

French Bulldog Billy Bean and his feline sidekicks Bella and Peeluce belong to Maria and Joao. A few years ago, they left Portugal for London for work, and we transported their cats for them. Billy Bean was just a baby, so they took him with them by train and car.

Now, with two young children, the family is returning to Portugal, to the town of Viseu, and again asked us to transport their pets — including Billy Bean this time. A bundle of fun, he formed quite an attachment to courier Paul; while the cats were very laid back about the whole travelling lark.

Jim

Gentlemen Jim is one of Animalcouriers’ most frequent passengers. Along with owner Faith, he spends winter in London and summer in the south of France.

Although quite a mature fellow these days, he’s as lively, alert and curious as a kitten.

Honey

Honey is a simply gorgeous rabbit who belongs to Manuel. She’s on her way to join Manuel and his girlfriend, who are returning to Rome after a spell in Scotland.

Devoted Manual took the train with Honey from Glasgow at 3am, reaching us around midday in time to pop Honey into our van, ready for her journey.

Hera is a cross-breed with all the best looks of a Staffie and a Dogue de Bordeaux. She’s travelling with us from London to Athens, to rejoin owner Maria.

      Fluffy certainly gets around. Let’s hope that she’s had her fill of solo travel!

    The usual stellar cast, AC. Fluffy, it seems is a dog after my own heart. Ready to wander! Maybe she would like to join me on my thousand mile backpack trip this summer! 🙂 –Curt

      We’d be happy to hear that Fluffy was on a trek with you Curt, otherwise, Fluffy has enough beauty in her own back yard!
