Courier Richard delivered a family of pets from Bahrain to their new home in Scotland. On the way back, he collected a new set of passengers who joined our trip to southern Europe with courier Paul.

Filbert, Lulwa, Nikki, Weasel and George

Parakeet Filbert flew in from Bahrain ahead of his housemates (a dog and three cats). All five pets are Bahrain rescues who live happily together.

Filbert homeboarded with Animalcouriers for a short while before heading off to be reunited with the rest of the family in Edinburgh.

Fine feathered fellow Filbert

There was so much excitement in the air when the pets were reunited with their family. Here's Lulwa (whose name is an Arabic word for 'pal') enjoying welcoming tummy rubs.

Oscar

Terence and his wife are leaving Midlothian behind and retiring to the sunnier climes of Portugal. Precious Cocker Spaniel Oscar is the first member of the family to leave the UK. He’s been Terence’s constant companion, even accompanying him to work, so being separated is an entirely new experience for this lovable chap.

Marshall

A late addition to our trip, Shar Pei Marshall is travelling from Newcastle to Javea, in Spain. Since owner Jimmy went on ahead, Marshall has been looked after by Simon, who drove to Carlisle to intercept our trip from Scotland and get Marshall on his way.
