On a recent pet transport from Spain to the UK we took two very sweet little dogs (Bella and Pablo) from Southern Spain to Holyhead, where they were reunited with their owners after six (6) months, who had come over on the ferry from Dublin to collect them.
Unfortunately the economic crisis means that it is all to common for us to be taking pets back to the UK from Spain. Last year we reunited a pet with their owner after 14 months apart, and it it times like that you really wish you could explain to the dog what is happening to them.
Bella and Pablo were brilliant, but of course had no idea what was going on. While we were waiting at the Holyhead arrivals Diva sat on my knee and Pablo sat at my feet and my parents (which had come along for a day out) commented that it would be great if their owners say them so relaxed.
They did but not for long. What a brilliant site as soon as the two little ones recognised their owners! They shot off to them in an instant. No hesitation. No doubts. No recriminations for having left them.
There are many reasons why we do what we do, but that is one of the main reasons.
I didn’t get a photo of the reunion, but I did receive a couple of photos of the two little ones enjoying their life in Dublin with their owners.
And I was having another play with the GoPro, this time mounted in the Nissan Qashqai which we use to deliver pets in the UK when we don’t need to take the large van. It is a while since I drove through North Wales and I was impressed with the roads. The GoPro is proving to be brilliant, although I probably need to adjust it a little so I don’t have quite as much of the dashboard in the shot!
