Courier M collected two Lurcher Collie cross puppies from breeder Sally Handcock in Sutton Coldfield. These two youngsters, who don’t yet have names, are travelling with us to their new owners in Fife in Scotland. Also on board was lovely tortoiseshell cat Chunky. This chatty, friendly puss is on her way from Sussex to Cumbria.

Meanwhile courier S made sure stunning Siberian Husky Anakin and incredibly cute Shih Tzu Bob got to Heathrow airport in plenty of time for their flights. Anakin from Hove in West Sussex is flying to New Zealand where his owners are relocating. Anakin was originally born and raised in the US, and accompanied his family when work brought them to the UK, so he’s a seasoned traveller who takes flying in his stride.

Bob travelled with us from Lancashire, where his owner shed a few tears at the prospect of even a short time apart. He spent the night before his flight home boarding with Animalcouriers, then it was off Heathrow for his flight to Australia, where he’ll be reuinited with his family.

We also heard from Maddie, who adopted little Greek kitties Flup and Sailor. She says:

“Flup and Sailor arrived this evening! And oh my god are they cute! Flup is best friends with everything and everyone straight away! He’s just a little bundle of love! Sailor is a little unsure but has already settled down some since coming home so I think she will be absolutely fine in no time! Good thing she has her buddy Flup with her!

They really are so so sweet though. I’m in love with them already. They haven’t been formally introduced to Zeus yet as we want them to settle first but he knows something is going on and he’s very excited! We have two weeks off work to slowly introduce them properly so that they become best of friends.”

A last goodbye to a very relaxed Anakin as he head off to board his flight. The airport vet commented on what a beautiful and gentle dog he is.
