Waiting to cross from Calais

Waiting to cross from Calais

We’re at Calais waiting for our crossing and reflecting on our trip. It’s taken us exactly seven days to get from Girne to Calais, where we stayed last night.

We’ve really enjoyed all the pets we’ve had on board, and would like to say a big thank you to their owners for entrusting them to us. All the cats and dogs have travelled brilliantly, and we can honestly say they’ve eaten well, slept well, and been fine examples of good behaviour!

We should be in Caterham later today, and Courier M in West Sussex by about 1700.

The pets we’re delivering in the north will be on their way as soon as we reach Dover — courier R met us in Calais this morning with our second van, where they’re already settled in, to avoid any waiting when we reach Dover.

Joe, Sophie, Dylan and Daisy are travelling west with courier M2 and will start that leg of their journey from Caterham at around 1430 today.

Couriers R and M2 aren’t BlackBerry buffs and don’t take photos, so we’d be very pleased if you’d send us digital pictures of your pets in their new homes. That way we can let all their friends and fans in KAR, North Cyprus and the blogosphere know how they’re getting on.

    Just out of curiosity, are there many animal courier businesses? You seem so unique! Over here we only have one that I have been able to find in phonebook.

      Well, as far as we know we were the first in the UK when we started in 2002. Since then a number of competitors have sprung up throughout Europe. The recession has done for a few but many have national road operations. Not quite so many cover mainland Europe.

        There is only one service like yours that I know of – over here in Western Australia – but they are mostly pick up + delivery on a daily basis – not anything like what you guys do. I think you are wonderful!

      Hey Mollie – most dogs would rather go for a good walk than travel 🙂

    7 days??? Well done Animalcouriers – uve cracked it !!!! Little Annie sends her love (April-May trip)-to couriers J & M – wants you to know she’s loving the UK – even in the rain. Can sit,down, paw, runs off the lead in the woods and comes to command (with the help of a titbit she’ll even do a little dance on her hind legs – well uve probably witnessed that already!). Keep up the good work and all the best to KAR.

      That’s super news about Annie – sounds like she’s doing really well! We love to hear how they’re all settling in.

    Thank you, couriers M,J and K, for taking care of our well behaved animals and delivering them safely.

      Thanks Joan. If you get a chance, we’d love to see a photo or two of them in their new home 😉
