Courier Richard set out from the UK with pets travelling to Switzerland, Spain, Italy and Greece. On the way from Switzerland to Spain through France, he met up with couriers M and Marc to hand over three dogs heading to Italy and Greece.
The first of two Luckies on board, Jack Russell Terrier Lucky is a true gent who lives up to his full moniker of Flack des Dunes de la Rougeve. After a spell at doggy training school in the UK, it was time to head back to his home in Switzerland.
Tigre and Potto
Super feline pair Tigre and Potto travelled from Wimbledon to Girona in Spain. They have a short wait at a cattery until owner Daniela arrives to collect them.
Adorable Labrador Kiara has swapped Cambridge for Barcelona in Spain.
Our second Lucky is a senior girl with a touch of arthritis in her back legs. It doesn’t hold her back on her walks, however — she just needed a bit of help in and out of our van. She travelled with us from Lancashire to join her owners in Alicante in Spain.
A meeting of vans near Valence
Animalcouriers tries to minimise journey times for pets. So Nevis heading to Italy, and Baloo and Lincoln on their way to Greece, travelled as far as France with courier Richard, to avoid a trip all round Spain with couriers M and Marc. Our couriers met up near Valence, where Nevis, Baloo and Lincoln were scooped up by couriers M and Marc for their onward journeys.
Cocker Spaniel Nevis hails from Lancaster. This loveable fellow relocated to Lago Patria in Italy, to rejoin his owners who’ve been posted to the NATO base there. Owner Ben told us that Nevis’s arrival was more keenly anticipated than his own. Poor Ben!
Delightful Golden Retriever Baloo joined us on Reigate Hill in Surrey. A returning passenger, she originally travelled with us from Greece to the UK in 2015. Now she’s on her way back to Greece for a few months.
Classic English Bulldog Lincoln is also travelling from the UK to Greece, to join owner Alexia who’s returning to her home country. Lincoln’s a big strong lad, but good as gold on his lead when out for a walk.
