Cleaning out the van, ready for our UK-bound passengers

Courier J flew into North Cyprus to meet up with couriers M and J2 on their arrival. While they took a well earned break, watching the waves and dipping their toes in the sea, courier J drove all over town looking for a car wash that would clean out the Animalcouriers van.

She eventually found the lovely Sam, who was very happy to help. A couple of beers were needed to get through the task!

Sam was a bit bemused. "You bring dogs here? From where?" he asked, as courier J explained why there was cat and dog hair in the van.

The van and its innards were soaped and disinfected ready for the next group of passengers

It didn't take Sam long to get into his stride — although he did mention it was quite difficult to get all the dog hair out. Don't we all know that feeling!

  1. My Sissy didn’t leave any hairs in my car….. I don’t think I could ever go back to all that shedding. I often tell folks I shed more than she does. 😀

    • You could be the perfect ambassador for KAR – they’re about to embark on a major push to home their newly coined name for their ‘Cyprodoodles’. Exactly like Sissy, they don’t shed and are just gorgeous dogs 😀

    • Sam did a really fantastic job of the van. We were so relieved to find him after such a long journey. We find we wear as much dog and cat hair as we clean up each day 😉

      • You know I never thought about the cleaning of the van or any vehicles which is silly!! Of course you would have to have any vehicle you transport 4 leggeds cleaned after every trip!!! D’UH!!! Sam did a great job & I hope there are many ‘Sams’ all over to keep your vehicles in tiptop shape!!!
        I too wear cat fur…even on my ‘good clothes’ no matter if they are in a sperate clothing bag & I don’t let Nylablue near me…I even have a lint roller for my purse for this sneaky fur bits that show up as soon as you leave the house 😉
        But you know I wouldn’t have it any other way!!!!
        Have a sunny Sunday from Sherri-Ellen xo

  3. I hadn’t thought about the work needed between each trip to clean the van! I’m only glad that isn’t my job!! It would take a lot of kibble, liver treats and bacon to get me working on that 🙂

  4. My goodness, dog hair sure is hard to get out of the vehicle! I have a feeling Sam earned his pay that day. 🙂 Now you’re all cleaned up and ready to take the next group to their destination!

  5. I have you on weekly digest now, and WOW, what a week! It occurs to me that you have an excellent job. You get to play with the animals and see lovely places each and every day. Yes, I know there are down times, but for the most part this looks like the job to have. 😀
