Collecting puppy Marius, and Channel-hopping with Daniel and Walter

Courier Richard recently returned from a quick trip to France where he collected Bernese Mountain puppy Marius, and Daniel and his cat Walter.


Marius hails from Gézier et Fontenelay. This young pup was collected for Doreen in Colchester, whose previous much loved Bernese Mountain Dog passed away recently. Finding she couldn’t be without one of these cuddly hounds, Doreen turned to her original breeder for a new puppy.

On his way back to the UK from Marius’s mountain home, courier Richard called in at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport to collect Daniel and Walter, who’d flown in from North America.

Channel-hopping Daniel and Walter travelled together in the cabin of the Animalcouriers van. They got out at Ashford railway station to continue their journey via Kings Cross to Edinburgh, where Daniel’s wife was eagerly awaiting their arrival.
