Pets travelling to and from Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden

Courier Richard recently undertook two whistlestop tours with pets travelling to and from Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden.

His first trip took in Berlin, The Hague and Schiphol airport. A few days later, he travelled to Denmark and Sweden, then home via Hamburg.

Juno and Bob

This stunning pair of Bengal cats travelled to Berlin, where owners Delia and Craig have relocated from Newcastle upon Tyne. Both cats were perfect — even regal — passengers.

Jack

In The Hague, courier Richard collected handsome Jack the Lab from his sitter Raquel. He’s a calm and collected fellow, always up for a walk, who just needed a little help in and out of the van. Owner Charlotte was waiting excitedly for Jack in Fife.

Georgina and Ted

Courier Richard scooped up this gorgeous mother and son dog combo at Schiphol airport when they flew in from Cyprus. These two hounds were lucky enough to be rescued from the streets of Cyprus by Yasin and Melanie. Now the whole family has moved to the Isle of Wight. Georgina and Ted travelled the last leg of their journey with us by road.

Archie

Trip number two saw courier Richard make his first delivery in Denmark.

Handsome Archibald, or Archie to his friends, travelled from Leicestershire to Surrey before the trip set off. Owner Brigid, who is married to a Dane, relocated to Denmark a few days earlier, to get everything ready for Archie’s arrival. Archie was one of a litter of three kittens born to an Abyssinian queen who became pregnant by an unknown tom. Whoever he was, he must have been a large fellow, because the kittens were so big they had to be born by Caesarean section!

Cassie and Jessie

Beautiful tortoiseshell cats Cassie and Jessie belong to Stephen. They travelled with us to Stockholm to the home of Lehna, Stephen’s girlfriend. Stephen will be making his own move to Stockholm at the end of the summer.

Stephen and Lehna delivered the cats to courier Richard before heading off to a friend’s wedding. Lehna then had a quick dash to the airport to catch a flight back to Stockholm, ready to welcome Cassie and Jessie.

Digby, Muddle and Lilli

Cockerpoo Digby and his fabulous feline chums Muddle and Lilli were waiting for Animalcouriers in Lomma. Digby is an old hand at this travelling lark, as he made the journey with us when the family moved to Sweden.

This time around, the cats travelled with us too. Owners Lisa and Darren, along with young son Alfie, are returning to live in the UK, as Darren can now work from there and commute to Sweden a couple of times a month. Digby will have more freedom to run around in the UK, where free spirits can go off lead with more freedom than they can in urban areas of Sweden.

Motley

Beautiful calico Motley from Hamburg belongs to Enobong. After four years in Hamburg working on The Lion King, it was time for Enobong to head back to the UK — and of course Motley went too. Their new home is in Norwich.

We think gorgeous Motley has something of the Lion Queen about her

    Cuties all of them. Those shoe chairs are wild. I really like that moose sculpture.

      Not sure how comfortable the chairs are but they sure look good in reception! The moose might take up rather a lot of space in a garden but it does look perfect where it is.

    oh the cute bengal cats… the fur is amazing… how beautiful!… and I had the same idea like your courier as I sawe the moose… but he probably has the better car for this guy… think it never will fit in our elephant skate :o)

      What a sight that would be, you and your pawrents driving down the motorway in the elephant skate with Moose McMooseface sticking out the window!

    Much love to you all – your posts always cheer me up!

    The Bengal cats really are gorgeous, AC. I agree with Timothy that the High Heel chairs are something else! “Wild” fits well. Not sure I would want them in my house, at least permanently. 🙂 –Curt

      Bengals are as lovely as they look. Agree that the high heels are best viewed and left in situ 😉

    Great photos of views and animals alike.

    Oh what a great bunch of travelers on this journey…..never a dull moment but one thing is always the same – they look happy and comfy for their trips and even more happy to be reunited with their owners! Lovely photos too……what views (even of Mr. Moose!).

    Hugs, Pam and the boys

    Tweet, Tweet, Tweet….I am trying to whistle at Courier Richard for his 2 whistle-stop tours – you keep that chap on the go!
    Usually I have a favorite traveler, but this time I’m afraid I could hardly focus on Digby and his furry friends for staring at the high heel hotel lobby chairs. That’s a wee bit startling for these South Carolina eyes, m’am.
    Wow! Great post.

      Ha ha, courier Richard has been kept busy but at least he’s visited some fun places. The shoes, yes, the post should carry a warning 😀

    The shoe chairs are pretty awesome!

    They’re all gorgeous, but there is something about those Bengals! I love the moose sculpture. Tell Courier Richard that if he gets bored with it, it would look lovely in my garden.

    • Animalcouriers April 20, 2017 at 1:41 pm - Reply

      The Bengals are rather stunning. Think we’ll leave you and courier Richard to fight it out over the moose 😀

    What an amazing array of kities this trip. That rooster was so vibrants too. Safe travels!

      Aren’t they gorgeous. We’re constantly amazed by the colours roosters adorn themselves with!

    That must have been such an amazing journey, Annie. So many passengers and almost in the neighbourhood 😀 We’re having a big smile again on our face. Pawkisses for a safe travel and a Happy Day 🙂 <3 By the way, have you seen my high heels…MOL 😀

    A beautiful set of varied passengers!

    Abyssinians are not a large breed. Our own Abby is small and fine-boned. Must have been a big tom cat siring those kittens. The poor mother needing a caesarian! Her offspring Archie is very handsome.

We'd love to hear from you
