Happy Christmas

on the road with Animalcouriers

Season’s greetings from Animalcouriers

It’s been another wonderful year of reuniting pets and people, both on the road and in the air. We’ve made lots of new friends, and have enjoyed meeting up with familiar faces.

We continue to be impressed by the work done by so many animal charities and shelters, taking care of stray and unwanted animals, and finding new homes for so many lucky pups and kits.

On our latest European road trip, which took us to France, Spain and Portugal and back, we saw some marvellous Christmas scenes and decorations. Here’s a selection…

It just remains for us to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who’s been a client, a follower, or a Facebook friend during 2016. We wish everyone the happiest of holidays, and send our very best wishes for 2017.

    You are the best!! Our furry and feathered friends would be in very bad shape without you and your helpers!

    Happy Holodays to you and to all happy clients who are united now :o) the horse is fabulous, the mama would get one too… but my dad says the bike is a cool decoration idea too… and you can use it even for the whole year :o)

      Hi DP and humans! Yes, the horse seemed like a good idea but didn’t respond well to carrots πŸ˜‰ The bike would certainly speed things up and, as you say, is useful all year round.

    Happy Holidays my friends. The size of that gingerbread house had mom up and begging for part of the door. A fantastic cookie…a gingerbread door. MOL

      Hi Shoko and Kali – hope 2017 has started well for you. Now, we’ve seen what Mom can produce on the gingerbread front β€” this certainly has it for size but we’d much rather eat one of Mom’s πŸ˜€
