Yesterday Animalcouriers delivered dogs Poppy and Vegas, and cats Afie and Fat Cat, to Danny and Sally in Inverness. Despite the humans being somewhat jet-lagged after the long trip from Dubai, it was a very happy reunion.

And Doofus reached his new home in Clynder, which will be quite a change from his old Surrey home, as it’s open countryside with plenty of opportunities for exploring and hunting. His owner Chris is very excited for him, saying, he won’t know himself with all this space!

And here's Nessie herself, who travelled with Animalcouriers all the way from her winter holidays on Italy's Lake Como, where she was visiting relatives. Nessie tells us it was a much needed break as she's not getting any younger, and she finds all that ducking and diving during the tourist season pretty tiring these days!
