So this weekend has been a bit of a rush. It’s the weekend my husband and I are bringing our dog over from Berlin to our new home in London. Thankfully the days of 6 months of quarantine at a UK port are over for EU pets, but still the journey is long and arduous.


We flew out to Berlin on Friday afternoon, collected the rascal from our friend and dog breeder Michaela Deininger who has been taking care of him for the past 7 weeks (we are indebted to her acts of kindness not just on this occasion but many times over the years). Saturday was then a 6 hour drive to Cologne where Gimli got further shots and a health check up. Tomorrow will be the final leg, a drive onward to Amsterdam where he’ll be flown ‘cargo’ to Heathrow. I will be there waiting for him, ready to bring him home. More news and pictures to come… 🙂
