Courier S delivered Bambi, Jack, Poppy and Topaz to their new families yesterday. These four dogs were among the 15 that made the epic trip from North Cyprus with Animalcouriers. Topaz was the last one to be reunited, almost exactly 14 days to the minute since they all set off.
Animalcouriers collected this handsome 12-week-old Rottweiler puppy from County Durham earlier today. He's staying overnight with us before an early-morning check-in at Heathrow tomorrow for his flight to Ottawa.
Excitement all round as Tammi's family came to collect her.
There were tears of joy and lots of hugs when Louise came to collect Chloe.
Stephanie and her other dog Sadie came to collect Freeway. Stephanie told us how she came to adopt Freeway. She visiting a friend when Freeway was brought into her friend's office. He was nearly dead, starving and dehydrated. She couldn't bear it, so sponsored him to be cared for by KAR and then had Animalcouriers bring him home.
Patch was reunited with Aimee. Patch will also have a puppy look after!
When Liz and Guido came to collect Mojo, he went completely potty as soon as he saw them. Liz and Guido spent seven years in North Cyprus, running a restaurant. They used to feed the street dogs and quickly found themselves running what could be described as a kind of local dogs' home. Liz says many unwanted puppies were dumped on them, that she managed to rehome. They're now looking forward to their other two dogs, Valentina and Bertie who are waiting in Cyprus, rejoining them later in the year.
We were met at Dover by couriers L and K. They came to whisk Max and Paddy off to Marian, who is anxiously waiting for them. We were both pleased and sad to see this lively pair go, as our travelling dog family is now down to 13.
All the very many times we have gone through pet passport control at Calais — never has it been as easy or as seamless as this time!
The trip that started in North Cyprus will reach Animalcouriers' base in Caterham this afternoon (Sunday). So if you're collecting your pet from us, you'll be able to do so later today. If we're delivering your pet to you, those trips start tomorrow (Monday).
