Sad news about Taska

Very sadly Taska passed away yesterday afternoon. She had a kidney infection and died from kidney failure. She slipped away with no pain or suffering, and was very well cared for throughout. The vet explained it was possible Taska had had a kidney disorder for a while. It was a great shame it took her before couriers J and M were able to get her home to her family.

Update on Taska

The vet looking after Taska contacted our British vet in France, Dr Diana James, to tell us her diagnosis. Taska has a kidney infection and the vet has some concerns about her kidney function. The infection remains serious, and her temperature was up this morning. Thank you to Diana and the vet in Neufchatel for keeping watch over Taska for us, and thank you to all our friends for passing on good wishes to Taska. Meanwhile, the rest of the family have been reunited with Sally and Patrick, who hadn’t seen them for over a month since they left France. [...]

A visit to the vet for Taska

Last night we found a great place to stay near Dieppe with a lake and a park where the dogs enjoyed their evening walks. When we went to walk them again this morning, we noticed that Taska, the female Berger Picard travelling with us, was looking very down and didn't seem keen on going out. So we lifted her out of her compartment but could immediately see she wasn't at all well. We contacted our British vet in France, Dr Diana James, for advice. She talked us through a checklist of symptoms and together we decided to take her to [...]

Rehabilitated street dogs, Harley and Yogi

These two street dogs have been wonderfully looked after and rehabilitated in Alicante. They’re now travelling with Animalcouriers to a rehoming centre in Southampton. Harley is gentle and kind but a little bit scared of cats. His mother, who we also met, is a Rottweiler but his father’s breed is unknown. Harley does have, however, the classic look of a Pointer, just a little heavier in the body. Harley Yogi is a real cutie. He’s still learning to trust humans again but is showing a lot of affection to Couriers S and L and seems to be totally [...]
