On our way back to the UK from Greece, we stopped in northern Italy where it was snowing. The dogs absolutely loved it! They ran around in it like small children, weaving their noses through the it as though in search of elves and fairies, and leaping in delight. Given the snow that was blanketing much of the UK when we got back, it was a good opportunity for the dogs to acclimatise!

Happy reunions

As soon as we were back in Blighty, the reunions began. Calle’s owner Angus wrote to say:

“Thank you all for your part in delivering Calle safe and well. A big welcome and courier V was a perfect example of your living, thoughtful service! It is really so reassuring to meet people who really care about what they are doing. I am sure Calle loved her journey with couriers J and M and her new canine friends! Will strongly recommend you to anybody with similar needs.”

Panos, owner of ball-mad Rottie Djibril, sent us a photo of Djibril all settled at home and said:

"I would like to thank Animalcouriers, they made my dream come true. Couriers J and M care for everything and inform me every time even when I ask for more information. Continue the good job guys and make also more pet owners happy."

There was a hearty welcome for Blacky from her family at their new home in Lincolnshire. Blacky had been a little nervous during the journey, and was gradually warming to courier M. Once back with her family, she showed her very happy side! Ellie wrote to say: "Thank you for the excellent service. My lovely dog is fine, clean and happy!"

When Eleni called in to collect Jerry, it was hard to say whose smile was the widest!

Bonnie spent the night at courier J's and immediately found herself on a steep learning curve β€” what to do with a carrot? By carefully watching the resident hounds, she soon had it all worked out.
