Jack moves from Sweden to Guernsey; Tom, Jerri, Rosie and Charlie leave Guernsey for the US

Gorgeous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Jack few into London's Heathrow Airport from Sweden. After a day's rest and recuperation, he was ready to be collected by Animalcouriers to continue his journey by road and sea to Guernsey. We drove to Weymouth where we took a walk and admired a recently installed, rather amazing sculpture by Andy Kirkby, before catching the ferry to St Peter's Port where we were met by Jack's very excited family on the quay side. Once Jack was safely delivered, it was off to collect cats Tom and Jerri and their canine companions Rosie and Charlie. This quartet have [...]

Coco, Jules and Jim get on board; and Rudi, Lillian, Rusty, Poppy, Sushi and Ninja are home

The last passengers to board the Animalcouriers van in France were darling Bichon Frise Coco and handsome tuxedo cats Jules and Jim. Coco travelled with us in April to the south of France for a lovely long summer holiday, and is now heading home to Glasgow. Regular passengers Jules and Jim have been at their summer residence near Perpignan and are now returning to London. Once back in Blighty, we reunited Lillian with Jessica, Rusty with Bob, and Sushi and Ninja with Cheila. We also received a couple of lovely photos from Fiona of cat Poppy, who has moved south [...]

Lost puppy in Spain needs a home

As we mentioned in our blog yesterday, Louise from Pets Paradise in Sabinillas in Spain is temporarily caring for a young puppy who was found on the road. We think she was deliberately abandoned, as she was first spotted near an old river bed, where she had probably been thrown from a car. So although Louise is trying to trace an owner, she feels that realistically it's a new home the puppy needs. The puppy is a very sweet and friendly girl, around 8–10 weeks old, who still trusts in humans despite whatever her recent experiences were. If you or [...]

Cookie, Molli and Whisky — and Bandit makes four

On Tuesday night Animalcouriers stayed at the Hotel Almazara in Loja, not far from Malaga. We enjoyed a fine view of olive trees and vineyards as we walked dogs and cleaned our van the next morning. Then it was off to Onil to collect Christine's cats Cookie, Molli and Whisky. Christine splits her time between Javea and the UK. While her cats were boarding in Javea recently Christine received a call to say that unfortunately the cattery owner had died. A neighbour offered to take care of them for a few days, but Christine had to make alternative arrangements quickly, [...]

Meet Cisco, Clay, Rusty, Aphrodite, Lucie and Jake; and a cute pup who needs a home

Animalcouriers collected Labradors Cisco and Clay at Barking Mad Kennels in Lagos, Portugal. Following a summer in Portugal, these two are heading back to Wimbledon in the UK to rejoin their family. Also getting on board was Rusty, who is moving to Surrey having lived all his life until now on the Algarve. He's quite a senior chap so his family are keen to have him home. We stayed the night at the Monte Rosa B&B, just a few kilometres from the kennels. It's a very quiet, rural location — perfect for us and our pets. As we continued north the next [...]

Following the Camino de Santiago; and meeting up with UK-bound dog and cat passengers

Sometimes it can be a tough job — especially when you come across a gem of a hotel like O Muino de Pena! Animalcouriers followed the pilgrimage route — the Camino de Santiago (the Way of St James) — that ends in Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. A mill where pilgrims used to call in for a bed for their last night has been transformed into a wonderful rural hotel, where we were lucky enough to stay the night. Resident Labrador Trotsky greeted us warmly on our arrival, very pleased to discover we had a box of Bonios with us. We soon [...]
