Couriers Paul and Trevor recently returned from Greece with two family dogs from Turkey and a rescue cat on board.
Kouriakis, a cat from Greece to England
Dear little Kouriakis (also known as Kourkounel) was rescued by Makri. Kouriakis has been staying with Makri’s father while she arranged his journey to the UK. Unfortunately, her father broke his leg, so Makri needed to find a way for Kouriakis to travel as soon as possible.
Fortunately, Animalcouriers were on their way to Greece to collect Murphy and Baby, two dogs belonging to Gulce and Mert, and had room on board for Kouriakis.
Murphy and Baby, two dogs from Turkey to England via Greece
These splendid dogs belong to Gulce and Mert, who have relocated to the UK. Gulce didn’t want the dogs (whom she calls ‘her babies’) to fly and, in any case, Great Dane Murphy is too big for a travel box.
With her parents, Gulce spend two days driving Murphy and Baby from Turkey to Athens, to meet up with couriers Paul and Trevor. They were fortunate to be leaving Turkey just before the terrible earthquake struck.
On the ferry from Patras to the Italian port of Ancona, Paul and Trevor booked a big cabin for themselves and the two dogs. From Ancona, they drove to London with Murphy and Baby. Meanwhile, Gulce boarded a plane to the UK to be on hand when her precious dogs arrived.

Lucky dogs – now that’s “First Class” service and transport for the whole family. Love this!
Trevor and Paul had a lot of fun with the dogs on the ferry!
Kouriakis is a cute bandit kitty. Murphy was having fun running up and down. He and Babe looked like they were styling all the way.
Kouriakis hit a sweet spot being able to tag along on the trip. Murphy and Baby were certainly styling!
Thanks, all home and happy now.
Gosh, how fortunate you guys weren’t around in Turkey during horrific earthquakes!
Precious cargo on the trip – safe travels wherever you go!!
Loved these pictures – and that sunset was amazing.
It was very lucky that Gulce and her parents made it before the earthquakes! Paul and Trevor had a lot of fun with Murphy and Baby 😀
MOL…that looks like more than just one job…MOL…That picture on the ferry is very beautiful, Annie and the happy reunions make us happy too ♥ Double Pawkisses for safe travels ahead to all of you 🙂 ♥
It does look a little hectic but not too many pets on board!
There isn’t much room left when Murphy is on the bed!
No, there isn’t much room but Baby always manages to squeeze in!
