Courier Richard set out from the UK with dogs and rabbits on board, heading for various destinations in Germany and Sweden. On the way back, he travelled with dogs and cats relocating to the UK, and lovebirds moving to Belgium.

Momo

Handsome Momo travelled with us from Warwickshire to rejoin owner Maria in Solvesborg, Sweden. At the age of 14, he’s a senior fellow, but still has a spring in his step.

Peeka and Chansey

Lionhead rabbit Peeka is travelling with Lionhead-Angora mix Chansey from Wiltshire to Stockholm in Sweden. Such a loveable pair, clearly used to be handled and petted. Both have great appetites and enjoy almost full-time munching.

Peeka β€” such fluffy ears!

Nacho

Nacho is a Pomsky β€” a Pomeranian-Husky mix. He’s travelling from Hertfordshire to Hans and Marlene in Sweden. Nacho loves his walks, and is always super keen to investigate the next interesting scent.

Kiba

Dalmatian Kiba is very strong but, fortunately, very well trained. A single command of ‘sit’ is immediately obeyed. He’s on his way from Hampshire to owner Robin in Sweden.

From France to Sweden for reunions

From Calais courier Richard headed to Bremen in Germany for the night. The next morning, he boarded the ferry from Puttgarden (near Hamburg in northern Germany) to Rodby (in Denmark). To get to Sweden he drove across the Oresund bridge, arriving in good time to deliver Momo to Maria. The next day, there were more reunions to enjoy.

Findus and Snovit

Following a night in Nordby, it was time to scoop up cats Findus and Snovit, who belong to Andreas and Lauren, and are relocating to Wales. Andreas explained that both cats are rescues β€” with their lovely looks and temperaments, they’re a great advertisement for rescue cats.

Heading back to the UK via Belgium

With all passengers on board, it was time to hop on the ferry from Rodby back to Puttgarden. Courier Richard then made his way to Calais via Belgium, where he stopped off to deliver the lovebirds to owner Marisa’s sister and their aunt in Maasmechelen. These lovely ladies will take care of Marisa’s beloved birds until she completes her own move to Belgium.

A hearty breakfast enjoyed along the way
