Over the past few weeks we’ve made a number of trips with gorgeous puppies and kittens, as lockdown-related travel restrictions made it difficult for owners to do their own collections.

Bella, a puppy from Swansea to London

Nicki contacted us when Wales entered lockdown, which prevented her from collecting new puppy Bella herself. Courier Richard did the honours and delivered Bella to her happy family in London.

Yitzhak, a kitten from France to the UK

Erhi was on the waiting list for a kitten from a breeder in France, and asked us to collect the darling little fellow on his behalf. Erhi was over the moon when Yitzhak Natsukaze RoyalDream (Zhak to his friends) arrived at his London home. He wrote to say:

“Wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for the service you provided in bringing my new kitten to his new home. Special thanks to Glenn for dealing so well with the breeder and for keeping me updated on journey progress throughout. Thanks also to Ricardo for taking the final leg of delivery in the wee hours of Thursday morning! Zhak is settling in nicely and seems like a dream of a lad already and can only get better as he develops.”

A doodle puppy from Country Durham to London

Ben’s cute little doodle puppy travelled with us from Bishop Auckland to his new home in Chelsea. Ben wrote to say:

“I just wanted to thank you (and Ricardo) for the safe delivery of our pup on Saturday! He has been an absolute dream and we appreciate the work of your team to have him a safe arrival amidst lockdown.”

Asta and Quinn, two puppies from Selkirk to the West Country

Courier Helen collected these two beauties in Selkirk on behalf of David and Karen, who wrote to say:

“Thank you for the collection of Asta and Quinn from Selkirk to Bristol. All went to plan and the pups are settling in well.”

A Labrador puppy from Yorkshire

We travelled to Oxenhope in Yorkshire to collect a lovely Labrador puppy for Billie and family. Billie told us:

“Thank you, you did an excellent job for us. Puppy arrived calm and happy. So pleased I found you. Thank you so much for looking after her on that long journey. I will recommend you to anyone else who needs your service. Very professional but more importantly very caring. And the photo of her leaving the breeder and her dog mum saying goodbye had me in tears. But lovely to see. Thank you again.”

Reyah seeing her puppy away β€” Claire was quite tearful as we said goodbye. As new owner Billie observed, Claire is evidently a very caring and responsible breeder.
