We are off on our holidays soon and Lulu comes with us all the way to France. She travels really well. The process of getting her back into the country involves a visit to the vet in France at the right time and checking her in separately at Eurotunnel before we get on the train.
This sounds like a lot of trouble but is really straightforward. People put me off it for years, saying it was such a pallaver but in fact it's a lot easier and cheaper than organising to put a dog in kennels. And better for all of us, too - we have so much fun together in France.
I usually let Nick sit in the front of the car, though.
