A trip to Sweden and back via Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands

Animalcouriers recently made a trip to Sweden to reunite a dog with his owner. On the way back we collected a puppy in Denmark, a cat in Germany, and a dog in the Netherlands.

Jackson

Handsome Golden Retriever Jackson belongs to Ewelina. We collected him in Leytonstone, in east London and took him to Svinesund, on the border between Sweden and Norway. Ewelina wrote to say:

“Thank you very much to everybody who worked on organising Jackson’s trip from London to Svinesund. Richard was wonderful and ensured Jackson had a comfortable journey home.”

At Eurotunnel we found a lot of trains being rescheduled. Jackson didn't mind the delay — it just meant he got a longer walk!

One thing he does mind, though, is thunderstorms! With the sky crackling on our first stopover in Germany, courier Richard decided to take Jackson into his hotel room for the night.

We stopped off at the Tanum World Heritage site for a walk. It's home to magnificent rock carvings made 3,000 years ago.

Our meeting place was the Nordby shopping centre, so courier Richard had a quick look round before heading off. You could buy almost anything there, from this speedboat…

Ukaleq

In Roslev, Denmark, courier Richard collected gorgeous Husky pup Ukaleq from his breeder, Bodil — and had the pleasure of meeting quite a few of Ukaleq’s relatives, too.

Once he reached the UK, Ukaleq headed to London Heathrow, to board his flight to the Cayman Islands.

The night before heading back to Denmark, courier Richard stayed at a rather delightful holiday park. He had no passengers to occupy him, but fortunately there was crazy golf to keep him busy!

He also made friends with another guest staying at the park — a charming Briard called Bijou

Hope

Gorgeous puss Hope started life as a stray on the streets of Dubai. She had an unsettled time of it until she was lucky enough to be adopted by Margaret, who subsequently took Hope with her when she relocated to Hamburg in Germany. Now Margaret has moved to Swindon in the UK, and Hope is on her way to join her.

Hope is such a pretty girl

Bear

A big name for a little Havanese! It’s actually because he looked like a teddy bear when he was a pup. We collected Bear in the Dutch town of Wassenaar and took him to rejoin owner Heather in London.

    Happy pets. Beautiful cars, and a chance to play “putt putt” golf. I have played putt putt golf in at least 40 years or more.

    It’s always a treat to see what you see and meet so many special angel beings with fur you are getting safely from one place to another. Your pictures of the sights are really nice for people like me that would love to get to such places but can’t afford to do so right now. Thank you!

    Courier Richard was so sweet to deal with thunder phobias…our Spike has the same fears, and I would like to think someone would be as kind to him if he was one of the dogs in transit!
    Great post, as always…

    I don’t like thunder either, Annie, so I can relate to Jackson. So glad of courier Richard to take him into the hotel for the night, so he had company for the night and didn’t had to deal with the terrible weather 🙂 You were two and a half hours away from my place, how COOL is that 😀 The pictures of them all are adorable and the view is magnificent! Pawkisses for a Safe Trip ahead 🙂 <3

We'd love to hear from you
