On our way to the UK from southern Europe

After dropping off passengers who travelled with us from the UK, we set off on our return journey, collecting pets on their way to the UK from southern Europe.

Breeze, Purdey and Amy

This fine trio of well behaved Labradors belong to Simon and Julie. They’re travelling home to West Yorkshire from Loule on the Portuguese Algarve, where they’ve spent the summer.

We called in at Barking Mad Kennels in Bensafrim to catch up with our old friends Heather and Alan. Here's Heather greeting us with her little dog Hope.

Electra

While on holiday near Faro Marilia met and fell in love with a little dog named Electra. Marilia’s sister, Marisa, has been Electra’s guardian angel, helping to get Electra ready to travel to her new home in the UK.

No doubting this one's identity, however — the man from La Mancha himself, Don Quixote!

Rocky

Another lovely Lab — Rocky belongs to Russell and family. He travelled with us from Cadiz to Nottingham.

Ollie and Tiggs

This charming dog-and-cat duo belong to Angie, a nurse working in Gibraltar. Now, 14 years on, Angie has decided to return to her roots and her family in Middlesbrough.

Oli

Oli’s owner works in the diving business in the Lagos area of Portugal. Her working hours made it difficult for her to give Oli all the attention he needs, so she decided it would be better for Oli to live with her dad in Glasgow.

Oli is very alert and always looking for something to chase!

Ori

While on holiday Becci met Ori, one of a litter of pups born on a nearby farm. It was love at first sight and now, at the age of four months, Ori is finally ready to travel to his new UK home with Becci.

Ori — a little hound destined to grow into a big dog!

Mitzi

Beautiful Siamese Mitzi belongs to Dan, who’s already relocated back to Ireland, so we collected her from Residencia Canina, a kennels and cattery near Cala de Mijas in Malaga. It appears she has Dan completely wound round her dainty paw, so we were warned to take no nonsense from her!

Louis, Oscar, Archie and Maisie

These four sweet Yorkies travelled with us to Rojales to join owner Kym and her husband for the summer. Now it’s time to return to the UK, and Kym asked us once again to transport her beloved pets.

Oscar and Maisie

Louis and Archie. Poor Archie developed an allergy while on holiday — possibly owing to the heat — hence the cone of shame…

Ori

Another Ori! We met Jack Russell Terrier Ori in Alicante. He’s travelling with us to rejoin owner Myra in Surrey.

Mowgli

Mowgli, a very cute Maltese Terrier, belongs to Kate. He travelled with us from Alhaurin el Grande, in Malaga, to Liverpool, where Kate’s mum Sue was waiting to welcome him.

Mowgli was keen on the idea of riding in the cab of our van

    I know I will always find lovely pets here, but the ferrets took me by surprised. Cute little fellas, aren’t they?!
    Glad to see Don Quixote represented – one of my favorites. I saw Howard Keel portray him on stage.
