Couriers J and M flew out to take over from courier Paul, to collect pets travelling from Portugal and Spain to the UK.

Lucas

Handsome ginger-tabby-and-white Lucas belongs to Ana, who’s swapped Lousa in Portugal for Nottinghamshire. We collected Lucas from Katia, a vet nurse who’s been taking care of him since Ana went on ahead.

Abbey

Friendly Bichon-Westie cross Abbey is the beloved pet of June, who checks in with us regularly to find out how Abbey is doing. Well, Abbey travelled like a pro! Her journey took her from Lisbon in Portugal to Surrey.

Abbey joined courier M for morning coffee at the hotel. She likes hotels because everyone stops to talk to her!

Around her smart hotel it was quite a rural environment. As you can see, it was a suitably breezy day for someone to hang their washing out!

Nala

In Andalusia we collected splendid Portuguese Water Dog Nala. She belongs to Alan, but has shown a certain amount of jealousy towards the children in the family. So Alan is sending Nala to his sister Susan in the UK, who will train her.

Henry and Cassie

Delightful Dalmatian Henry and Podenco Cassie made the trip with us from Malaga to Essex to rejoin owner Sharon and family. Sharon wrote to say:

“Just to let you know both kids are settling in well and we want to thank you SO much; they seem completely unfazed by their journey, they are shattered but very happy and they look great. Obviously they have had an unstressful and hassle free experience for which I am very grateful.”
