Couriers Marc and Matthew travelled with a fine passenger list of cats and dogs relocating from Greece to the UK.
Zorro, Spots and Stripes
This splendid feline trio belong to Edith — the whole family has swapped the island of Lesvos for Deal, in Kent.
We collected Labrador cross Jose from Giorgos in Athens. He travelled with us to join Nancy in Cardiff.
Bizoux, a Griffon, is a somewhat senior gent. His owner George, a vet, researched options to get Bizoux from Athens to Saarbrucken in Germany, but struggled to find anything suitable. Then he read about our planned trip from Athens to the UK, and asked us if we could work Bizoux’s route into our journey — which we were pleased to do. George collected Bizoux from us in Metz, in north-eastern France, about an hour’s drive from his German home.
Salvador and Tiger
Salvador and Tiger, and owner Eleni-Andriana, have relocated from Athens to Stockton on Tees.
Alley, Tuga, Odie, Macca and Della
Kevin’s famous five made the journey with us from Greece to rejoin him in Bedfordshire.
Archie, Storm, Mango, Phoebe and Bruno
These five little characters travelled from the islands of Lemnos and Lesvos with Starlight Barking Trust. They’re on their way to the Manchester Dog Café for rehoming.
Ilos, Daisy, Lilly and Rosie
These four great characters travelled from Lesvos with the Wild at Heart Foundation. Shepherd Cross Ilos has a new home with Caroline in Bridgend. Spaniel cross Daisy is on her way to Carol in West Yorkshire. Lilly’s new home is with Kerrie in London. And Spaniel cross Rosie has been adopted by Sheila in Essex.
On the way back through Italy, we stopped off in Milan to collect Rodrigo, a handsome Spinone cross Retriever travelling all the way to Carol in Clackmannanshire, Scotland.
