Indi, a lovely German Shepherd Dog cross, belongs to Amy, who’s relocated from Malta to the Netherlands.
Amy’s been working as an IT specialist on Malta for a couple of years. During that time, she adopted Indi from a local shelter. At the time, poor Indi had a terrible ear infection. Although it cleared up under Amy’s tender care, Indi has been left with sensitive ears. So much so that when Amy was planning her relocation to Amsterdam, the vet advised against Indi flying.
So Animalcouriers stepped in to transport the dog by road and ferry from Malta to the Netherlands.
We left the UK and headed through France and Italy, catching the ferry from Genoa to Palermo (on the island of Sicily). From Sicily it was another ferry to Malta.
With just a few hours to spare on Malta before meeting Indi, we did a spot of sightseeing.
Having collected Indi, we crossed from Valetta to Sicily and spent the night in Pozallo.
To get back to the Italian mainland, we boarded the ferry from Palermo to Genoa. The ferry had pet-friendly cabins and plenty of deck space for dog walks. And we were lucky with the weather!
With Indi safely delivered, Amy wrote to say:
“Thank you for getting Indi to our new home. I am sooooo pleased to have her back. Now to settle in! Thanks again for everything you did to pull this off!”
Indi looks lovely!
While I must congratulate you on the beautiful photographs you have taken, I am disappointed at not seeing the Maremmas at work! 😀
She is a dear. Awfully sorry Clowie but courier M getting out to take photos wouldn’t have been appreciated by them 😀
This is lovely!!!!
A complete story in pictures!! Terrific!
It does give you a sense of the countries we travelled through.
Indi is so beautiful!!! we love the title… it would make a great title for a sailor song :O)
How about coming up with the first verse? 😉
You were close to my neighbourhood, kinda. Always welcome to stop for coffee and chocolate and meet Jimi! 😉
Wouldn’t that be lovely!
A wonderful story, marvelous photos – another successful reunion!
P.S. Indi looks very much like our Spike!!
She does but possibly a bit bigger?
I like that the cat village has CCTV! Indi’s a beautiful girl!
We were very taken with that!
Love the photos
Thanks. We think courier M did a fine job.
Glad you enjoyed them.
What a wonderful set of views you had from your office window.
Don’t think courier M had much to grumble about.
Indi is a beautiful dog! And such spectacular areas the couriers pass through on their travels! I love the little cat village on the edge of the park.
We were very taken with the cat village!
Beautiful pictures, Annie and Indi is so beautiful too 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead and safe travels too 🙂 <3
Thanks Little B!
