While couriers M, Paul and Richard travelled round France, Spain and Portugal in December, couriers J and Huw were transporting pets from Greece to the UK.
Our first stop, however, was to deliver Akim and Nera who made the journey with us from the UK. These delightful passengers, who’ve travelled with us before, belong to Dimitri.
Vincent belongs to Tonia, who wanted her ‘little man’ to be with her for Christmas. Despite a metre of snow around her home in Shropshire, she managed to get to the airport and fly to Thessaloniki. There, she collected Vincent and made the six-hour trip to meet us in Glyfada so that he could get on board.
Old English Sheepdog Misky travelled with us from Athens to Leicester.
Splendid German Shepherd Dog Lucy made the journey from Athens to Coventry.
Ran Tan Plan and Hazelnut
These two Pointer cross dogs travelled with us from Lesvos, each having a new home to go to in Bristol. Their journeys were sponsored by the Wild at Heart Foundation.
Dizzy, Leo and Simba
Handsome trio Dizzy, Leo and Simba travelled from Lemnos to new homes in Manchester via the Manchester Dog Café. Their transport was sponsored by the Starlight Barking Trust. Our good friend Akis, who operates a pet taxi service, had to make two trips to the port to collect these three, as the first sailing was abandoned owing to bad weather.
