Millie flies to Calgary; Cooper touches down in Ohio; Pickles heads down under

Animalcouriers recently arranged for gorgeous Millie from Manchester to fly to Calgary in Canada. Her owner Jane left Millie in the care of her mum while she went on ahead to organise the family’s new home. It took longer to find pet-friendly accommodation than Jane had expected, but finally she found the perfect pad, and Millie was soon on her way. Jane sent a photo of Millie at her new home, saying:

“I’m pleased to tell you that Millie arrived safe and well in Calgary. It was a lovely family reunion at the airport! Thank you so much for everything you have done to get her to Canada smoothly. It feels like home now she’s here!”

We also heard from the owners of Cooper, the gentle giant of a Rottie who started his journey with us in Italy when we collected him from the Nato Air Base at Aviano. Cooper then flew from London Heathrow to Ohio. His dad Scotty sent us an update and some photos:

“Cooper made it home safe and sound and very happy. He is hanging out with our family in Ohio until we pick him up in a few weeks. Thank you so much for everything you did for us. We couldn’t be more happy with how he was cared for on his journey. From the pictures you posted it looked like he was having a blast and made some new friends.”

Meanwhile cheeky tabby cat Pickles, who travelled with us from Gibraltar in January, flew from the UK to Sydney, Australia, ready to start her new life in Perth with her owner Martin. Animalcouriers recently opened an account with newly established vet practice Vet on the Hill in Caterham in Surrey. It fell to vet Ian to give Pickles her pre-flight check and worming treatment, and wade through the pile of paperwork required by AQIS, the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service.

    I’m glad Cooper&Millie had a good flight… I hope for a giant bucket of ice cream for Cooper :o) It would be great if Pickles would meet Pickles in Oz once :o)

    Gee, dogs and a cat literally flying left and right. So glad they all made it to their destinations. Cooper, Pickles, and Millie all appear to be joyful pets.

    Ohio isn’t too far from us! If you couriers ever come to upstate NY, please let me know! What a great group. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts on Lacci.

      Sadly we never get to accompany any of these intrepid flyers 🙁 Hope the news on Lacci is good.

    Oh wow, Millie and I are practically neighbours now, LOL. Calgary is only 3 hours south of Edmonton. Super cute photo too.

    Hey! I remember Pickles. I remember her because I love that name. Australia it is then, how fabulous. The paper in her kennel says ‘Beauty and the Beast’, LOL I’m certain she would play the Beauty part most fabulously. Such a good girl to just laze about while Dr Ian organizes. Happy Travels Pickles!
