Animalcouriers crossed ‘that’ bridge from Denmark to Sweden to deliver Staffie Sox. His owner Ubbi couldn’t be there to meet him, so a friend of his came to collect Sox.

As we said goodbye to Sox, Sophie arrived to join the trip. This gentle Black Lab is travelling from Stockholm to England. Her grandfather came from the UK so she’s effectively going back to her roots! Her family have already moved to their new home in west London, but flew back to Sweden to make sure Sophie was all settled in for the start of her journey.

In addition to Sophie, we also have three more black pets on board — a black Great Dane and two black cats!

Great Dane Donna said goodbye to her family in Linkoping. The two young girls in the family were a bit tearful — they obviously love Donna very much and had made her a pretty coloured necklace for her trip. They also showed us a red ladybird they’d found. The whole family is very excited about their move to Cambridge, where they’ll be reunited with Donna very soon.

Then it was time to collect Tissou and Petit Choux. These little cats hail from Gothenburg and are following their owners to London. Family members were on hand to see these two very well loved kitties off. Petit Choux revealed her diva character, playing cat and mouse under the bed and the sofa; while Tissou adopted a movie star pose on top of the cat tree.
