Happy reunions for Suzana, Lucy, Moss, Soggy, Anakin and Hollywood

Happy reunions for Suzana, Lucy, Moss, Soggy, Anakin and Hollywood

Little Suzana was a passenger on our most recent trip from Greece to the UK. Her owner, Angeliki wrote to tell us how happy she is to be reunited with her dog:

“Thank you for bringing Suzana to Renfrew, she is really happy. We had three months apart and after a two-hour walk I am sure Suzana loves her new home. Please thank courier M for helping her to adjust to the trip.”

Lucy, from North Cyprus, was rehomed to Catherine in the UK by Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR). Catherine describes her as being ‘now a bone fide UK resident’. Lucy flew in from Istanbul to Heathrow, and Catherine takes up her story:

“Lucy was very trembly and worried but she walked out. I got a lukewarm reception but wasn’t expecting any more. She was very quiet on the journey home and I managed to keep a monologue up for an hour whilst trying to reassure her! She had a lovely supper, a roll in the wet grass and a huge welcome for Mummy and John — she totally remembered them. We had a quiet first night. I left the kitchen door into the garden open so that she didn’t feel trapped, but not a squeak from her. Up bright and early to beat the other dogs into the fields.  She had a run, a poo, several widdles, a bark at the horses and a lovely roll in fox poo! All this excitement followed by an enormous breakfast, gone in a gobble — I think we are going to be fine. All that worry for nothing.”

We also heard about the safe arrival a number of recent passengers who’ve taken long flights. Moss, a young Golden Retriever, flew with Air New Zealand to Christchurch. After 10 days at Canterbury Quarantine Kennels, he moved a little further south to Dunedin to rejoin his owners. Jacky told us:

“We have Moss at home and all is weIl. Thanks for everything, you were such a massive help throughout. Please find attached a picture of Moss on his new beach, he’s loving it here!”

Soggy, an older Golden Retriever, swapped Paris for Australia, via a stay in Scotland. Judith wrote to say:

“Soggy arrived and we are very grateful that you put so much effort in to manage the whole process. With all the intercountry and people interfaces I could imagine it was trying at times. Good job we had you.”

We also received an update from Dave, whose Siberian Husky Anakin relocated with him to New Zealand:

“Here are a couple of pretty good photos from Anakin’s recent outings, now that spring is upon us. Thanks again for all of your help, and if we ever hear of someone doing the same thing as us, we will be happy to provide a recommendation.”

Meanwhile, couriers J and R enjoyed the company of Hollywood, who homeboarded with us while waiting to catch his flight to Los Angeles. He was on his way back to… Hollywood!, as he splits his time between there and in St Leonard’s in the UK.

    Suzana’s ears are priceless! and I’ glad that Lucy found such a great home! Is the red thingy on her ear a special tag?

    • Animalcouriers October 10, 2014 at 9:33 am - Reply

      Yes, it’s a tag they use in North Cyprus to indicate that a street dog has been neutered.

    I really like your descriptions and accounts of all the dogs- where they came from and where they are now. Also the photos are all so cute. Hollywood’s name is a too funny. He’s a real fuzz-ball and a handsome fellow.

    I could be quite happy with the New Zealand beach.

      Sadly we don’t get to accompany our long-distance travellers 😉

        I am sure that some of your travelers would like their paws held. 🙂
