on the road with Animalcouriers

Reunions for Baxter, Rikki and Woody in England; and for Shelley, Bingo and Louis in Ireland

Animalcouriers has been busy reuniting some of our recent passengers from continental Europe with their owners in the UK.

Baxter was lucky enough to be adopted by Sam and Maddie when they were working near Carcassonne this summer. We delivered him to Sam’s mum Jane in Chester, where he’ll wait for Sam and Maddie to join him. Sam and Maddie are over the moon knowing that Baxter has reached the UK safely. Sam wrote to say:

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you. I can’t believe how helpful you have been and thoughtful to our situation. I cannot tell you how happy you have made us for helping us get Baxter back to England.”

Rikki was adopted by Sandy when she was on holiday in Portugal. Heather and Alan at Barking Mad Kennels looked after Rikki until she was well enough to travel to the UK. Sandy sent us some photos and a few words to let us know how well Rikki is settling in:

“Thank you so much for bringing Rikki back safely. She is incredible, so gentle and friendly, I cannot believe that she has only been with us a few hours, she is settling in so well. The other family dogs gave her such a lovely welcome. She has been playing with toys and tonight we have had a lovely walk. We are so fortunate to have such a lovely dog join our family.”

      Bingo is indeed a German Shepherd – a young gangly gorgeous fellow. Yup, we’re convinced dogs do smile!

    All beautiful passengers! I love little Woody. I wonder how many kitties get adopted while on vacation?

      Isn’t he gorgeous! Funnily enough, we’ve transported a spate of the lucky little things this summer.

    P.S. Baxter belongs to us at Casa de Canterbury – we would love to have him with us – if he didn’t already have a family that adores him!!!!! 🙂
