All the way to Greece with Cookie

Little dog Cookie travelled in style to Greece as our only passenger!  We crossed the Channel to Calais and decided to stop overnight a little way away, as the Jungle clearance was in full swing. Just 40 minutes away, at Lumbres, we found a golf club/hotel with rooms to spare as it isn’t high season. Lovely and quiet, it offered super dog-walking, but Cookie was a bit unsure about putting her paws down on the wet grass! Cookie prefers a nice dry duvet to wet grass Admiring the hydrangeas We motored on towards Italy and managed [...]

It was dark when he arrived and, after a very good meal, he headed off to bed.
