BoBo to Hong Kong, Jack to the Netherlands, Giorgio to Rome, and news from the UK

A number of our couriers have been on the road recently — travelling around England, Scotland and Wales; hopping across the Channel; and going as far as the Netherlands and Italy.

BoBo

BoBo was found abandoned in a public car park in Leicester six months ago, and had the good fortune to be taken in and nurtured by her caring new owner. He’s due to return to Hong Kong when his work at Leicester University comes to and end, and BoBo has flown on ahead.

Man and cat been together every day since BoBo was rescued, so it will a difficult but brief separation. Fortunately, family members were waiting to receive BoBo in Hong Kong and will take care of her in the meantime.

Jack

Labrador Jack travelled by train from Inverness to Edinburgh, where courier Mike took over Jack’s trip the rest of the way to the Dutch city of Den Haag.

Lovely little Leonard stayed with Courier S overnight, who then drove him to his new home with Janice — in St Leonards of course!

Dimitra

Dimitra arrived safely at her new home with Ian and Alys, where she seems to have settled in quickly with their other rescue dogs. Ian wrote to say:

“Thanks for transporting Dimitra for us — she arrived without seeming too groggy from the days of travel, and is already settling in well. She’s obviously been well cared for by Christina and Mariana at the Zografou shelter — she makes contact for affection, is eating well, and joins in with the other dogs. I think she now completes our dog family.”

And finally…

We received news of Zeus, who travelled with us in November last year along with three other pups from Lesvos Stray Dog and Cat Adoptions. Zeus was adopted by Wendy, and now he’s showing his winning ways. Wendy wrote to tell us that at the Milton Show, Zeus won Most Outstanding Mongrel, then Best in Show — “beating all the posh dogs!”
