Once Courier Richard had seen Pasha, Laki, Boz, Blue and Coco settled in at Chris’s Animal Hotel, in Athens, he handed over to couriers J and M for the return trip from Greece with nine dogs on board. Among them are a number of holiday romances heading to new homes in the UK.
Couriers J and M had time to enjoy the sights and sounds of Glyfada market before meeting their passengers.
Tavil and Paddy
Robin lives on Naxos and spends summers in the UK. Usually he makes the journey by car and takes Tavil and Paddy with him, but this year he’s flying back, so asked us to transport his dogs to London.
Daisy and Abby
Daisy and Abby hail from Crete, where they were adopted by owners Anne and Fred. After 14 years of living on the island, Anne and Fred are relocating to Oxfordshire — and the dogs are going too. Our friend Akis, pet taxi driver extraordinaire, collected Daisy and Abby from Crete. They had an overnight stay at Chris’s Animal Hotel before joining our trip.
Pillsbury travelled with us for Starlight Barking Trust. This gentle boy spent four years in a shelter on the island of Limnos. So we’re delighted that he finally has a new home with Christopher in Manchester.
While on holiday on Lesvos, Liliana found dear little Cahlee on the streets. Unable to leave her behind, Liliana has adopted her, with the support of Lesvos Stray Dog and Cat Adoptions, run by our friend Rebecca.
Another holiday romance from Lesvos — Jack Russell Terrier Vista has been adopted by Laura, also with support from Lesvos Stray Dog and Cat Adoptions. He’s on his way with us to join Laura in Rotherham.
Lofty is a fast-growing black-and-white pup found by Rebecca while she was on holiday on Skopelos. Dimitry from Vetcare Skopelos kindly looked after Lofty until he could travel. Like a special baton, he travelled by bus from Skopelos to Athens, where he was met by Akis who took him to Chris’s Animal Hotel until we came by to collect him.
Dear little Millie was found just three weeks ago by Susie, holidaying on Lesvos. What a quick turnaround of Millie’s life, as she now heads to the UK to live with Susie in Worcestershire.
