Amy, Jacky and Gwen have joined our trip to the UK

Amy, Jacky and Gwen have joined our trip to the UK

Animalcouriers collected King Charles Spaniel Amy from kennels in Cavalaire sur Mer, where she’s been waiting to be collected for her journey home. This cute little girl is travelling with us to West Sussex where she’ll be reunited with her owners. We arrived to find Amy had been washed and shampooed β€” she looked and smelled wonderful.

At six and a half months old, Australian Shepherd puppy Jacky is a lanky young thing. Now ready to leave her breeder and venture out into the wide world, she’s making the journey with us from France to the UK. Her new family in Henley-on-Thames is very much looking forward to welcoming this bouncy youngster.

Our final UK-bound passenger is Gwen from the Mediterranean city of Montpellier. One of most imposing cats we’ve ever met, she’s travelling with us to the UK where she’ll be reunited with her owner.

    Love the bouncy younger! But Gweny is magnificent… May I ask the breed and age?

    • Animalcouriers July 18, 2014 at 5:34 pm - Reply

      Gwen is quite magnificent! Don’t think she’s a particular breed other than British Shorthair. She’s seven and might just have stopped growing πŸ˜‰

    Gwen is such a big cat. I bet her personality is big too.

    Ahh, puppy love, but it looks like Gwen will keep the young ‘uns in line.

      Gwen is certainly the matriarchal figure – only 7 but full of presence!

    The imposing cat sounds like a travel game you would play to pass the time.BOL

      Hmm, more info on that game Basil – sounds like something that we could happily pass the time with πŸ˜€

    Gwen is spectacular! A real cat’s cat.

    It would be hard to raise puppies up and say goodbye I think. I’ve only ever had rescue dogs and so I’ve never met a breeder.
    I think Gwen might benefit from a more palatial kennel, LOL that is a big kitty.

    • Animalcouriers July 25, 2014 at 6:26 pm - Reply

      Yes, you have to be brave to breed dogs and then have to say goodbye. Gwen is one of the biggest cats we’ve ever met πŸ˜€

We'd love to hear from you
