Pets on their way to France, Spain and Portugal

Two Animalcouriers trips left the UK, with pets on their way to France, Spain and Portugal. Here you can meet all the passengers travelling with us on both trips. Courier Marc took in France and part of northern Spain, while couriers M and J continued further south to Portugal.

Monkey and Mooshka

This pair of Siamese cats are travelling with us from Whitstable in Kent to Eymet in France’s Dordogne region. True to their breed’s reputation, they sang all the way!

Bertie, another lovely Lab, and his feline chum Twiglet travelled with us from Bath in Somerset to Torre-Pacheco in Murcia.

Adorable Tiglet was a calm and relaxed passenger

Much excitement and quite a sizeable welcoming committee as we drew up. The children we delighted that the last two very important members of the family had arrived.

Lexi and Oscar

A delightful pair of Cavapoos, Lexi and Oscar belong to June. She’s spending the summer with her son in Manilva, Spain, and asked us to transport her beloved dogs to join her there.

Continuing the theme of happy reunions, here are Oscar and Lexi with June. Whey they spotted her waiting at the gate for them, they could hardly contain themselves!

    oh how great that monkey and mooshka were on board… the radio stations of france have sometimes a weird taste of muzak, so you had a good sound while driving ;O))) …and we love the fabulous big ears of Pepe!

    They’re all so gorgeous! I find Morley’s face quite hypnotic.

    We went outside to see the blood moon and a glimpse of Mars, but after weeks of clear skies there was total cloud cover that evening! I didn’t know Mars would look that large.

      He’s got a very deep look on his face! Yes, a lot of people missed the moon which was a great shame.

    Oh my! What a crowd that was on this journey but so many super happy faces not just during the trip but at the end when they are reunited with their loving families. Makes us happy to see! Thanks for the photo of the eclipse as we had RAIN all week and couldn’t see a thing.

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

      Ha ha, Little B, how right you are about music. Might not always want that channel though 😀 Hope you’re feeling a lot better soon!

    wonderful animal travel agency!
    a friend recently said she adopted
    a new doggy that was transported
    from Greece. i’ll ask her if your
    kind group was involved 🙂

    ps: in my experience, your post’s load up slower than other blogs.
    my humble suggestion, being that there are so many images,
    is to possibly reduce their file size. They are all so cute 🙂

    • Animalcouriers August 10, 2018 at 6:42 am - Reply

      Sorry to hear that We have started to reduce the file size of images recently. It’s a fine balance between quality and size and we’ll continue to experiment. We also need to do some housekeeping as we have posts going back so many years which is bloating the site and slowing everything down. One of these days…

We'd love to hear from you
