Pretty young dog Maisie and her feline companions Anak and Melchizedek (aka Mr M) set off for Bermuda today.ย Their owners went on ahead just after Easter to find the right house for this trio. This took a little longer than expected, but Maisie, Anak and Mr M are finally on their way.

Animalcouriers originally collected them from Edinburgh in March. Maisie has been staying with family members in Surrey, while Anak and Mr M have been boarding at Burntwood Cattery.

Earlier in the week Animalcouriers took all three pets to the vet to have their export certificates completed and the required parasite treatments done, before the Bermuda import permits could be issued.

Their owners are worried that Maisie won’t recognise them when she arrives in Bermuda, but we’re sure she will. She’s a very affectionate and laid-back young dog, who we feel will take everything in her stride.
