Here’s a round up of a few of our recent trips around the UK and Europe, taking in Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland.
Gorgeous puppies arrive at their new UK homes
We had the pleasure of delivering a host of squee puppies to their excited new owners in England and Ireland.
Mickey, Raffles and Gabrielle, 3 dogs from France to the UK
We met this delightful Cocker Spaniel trio in south-west France. They belong to Sheila and her daughter Caroline, who have moved back to the UK. While Sheila and Caroline completed their move, the dogs stayed in kennels near us. Once Sheila and Caroline were settled, we drove to Mickey, Raffles and Gabrielle to Cornwall for a very happy reunion.
Naturally, Sheila and Caroline missed their dogs very much while they were apart. Sheila sent us a super video of the dogs’ feeding time, telling us: “Mickey and Gabrielle do something akin to a highland fling. Gabrielle is Mickey’s much younger half-sister. From a young puppy she watched him and copied him in everything.”
Asterix, a dog from Provence to Hertfordshire
Asterix, a German Shepherd–Collie cross, travelled with us from the Var region of France to join his family in Hertfordshire.
Jenna, a dog from France to Wales
Caught up in a tug of love, darling Border Collie Jenna is at last back with her family in Wales. The logistics of getting Jenna to the UK proved rather challenging. Courier Glenn was refused access on an earlier Animalcouriers trip, before Covid-19 led to lockdowns. When France started emerging from lockdown, we were finally able to arrange for Jenna’s collection by our vet in France, Dr Diana James, who prepared her pet passport ready for her to travel to the UK.
It was an emotional time for owner Nicola and her family, who were pleased and relieved to know that Jenna was finally on her way. Jenna is quite a senior lady — Nicola tells us she is so happy to have Jenna back and able to oversee her through her twilight years.
Rocky, a dog from Essex to France
Friendly Cavapoo Rocky hopped on board in Essex and travelled with us to the Haute Savoie region of France.
4 cats from France to Switzerland
Rachael’s quartet of charming cats joined us in the Hérault region of France for their journey to Switzerland.
2 Ragdoll cats from Kent to Switzerland
We transported the Liebreich family’s gorgeous pair of Ragdoll cats from Kent to Switzerland.
