Svaki pas zna da nađe put do kuće, a ponekad, kao u slučaju jazavičarke po imenu Pipskvik, taj put se pretvori u avanturu dostojnu naslovnica.

Porodica Ilbek je na svom putu oko sveta, usvojila ženkicu jazavičara koju je našla na Siciliji. Dali su joj ime Pipskvik i kad je počeo haos s koronavirusom, mala Pip je sa svojom porodicom, krstarila morima.

U vrhuncu pandemije iskrcali su se na Hilton Hed ostrvu, a kako su se granice zatvarale, Zoe i Gaj Ilbek i njihova dva sina imali su manje od 48 sati da se spakuju i odlete kući u Australiju.

Pip, nažalost, nije mogla s njima, zbog strogih pravila Australije o uvoženju kućnih ljubimaca.

Today’s travel Pipdate: Too kind hearted to put her into the crate last night, @mhyoung83 let Pip sleep in her king size bed and experience the luxury of LA! This morning she bravely handed her over to Jetpets 🇺🇸 and Sandy took over her care for the next 48 hours while we sort out a few paperwork issues and get her ready for flight number 3. Melissa had a tough day giving up Pip then battling airline incompetence (no dog to check in on her return flight to NC caused big issues!), suffered a 5 hour flight with no lunch and then missed her final flight home due to a storm. Lucky her amazing husband rescued her by driving all the way to Charlotte! Melissa, you’ve been amazing. Pip and I and your Yiddish foster mums think you’re fabulous! 🥰 #livingitupinla #amazingperson #piptravels #stillsmiling #hangintherepip #jetpets #keepgoing #flyingsausage #dachshund #doxie #weiner #dachshundsofinstagram #dachshundoftheday

Zoe je brzinski organizovala da Pip ostane kod prijatelja u Južnoj Karolini dok se ne vrate. Mislili su da će to biti za nekoliko nedelja. Međutim, taj period se odužio…

Pipina nova starateljka živela je na farmi bizona, ali je već imala dva psa i nije mogla na duže staze da čuva Pip, pa joj je preko oglasa potražila novog staratelja. Javile su se tri osobe, a Pip je prešla kod Elen Stajnberg iz Hilsburga. Kasnije, kad je ona morala da obiđe svoju porodicu, Pip je stigla do još jedne starateljke, Stejsi Grin, koja se u nju zaljubila toliko da bi je zadržala da je mogla. A nije mogla, Pip je već imala svoju kuću, u Sidneju.

“Where’s Pip – is she ok?” So many friends have asked us this in the last few weeks since we landed in Sydney and a couple of times I’ve started blubbing. Because as those who know us will attest, Pip is actually our only daughter (and often our best behaved child!) and we had to leave her in the USA. So I miss her terribly, but actually my tears are more of gratitude because my dear friend Lynn in North Carolina took Pip In with without hesitation and just a day’s notice. Then she proceeded to find yet another insanely beautiful human called @insteinbergram who along with her uber cool sidekick @franklydogly has become Pip’s foster mumma. Ellen and Lynn are like her guardian angels and in the last month have helped Pip to navigate enormous change. This time last month Pip was in the Gulf Stream 80 miles offshore barking at dolphins. Today she turned two years old, dug some holes in the garden and Ellen hosted her birthday party! Frankly the Dog kindly helped her eat some party treats and she looked mildly interested as we all sang her happy birthday (honestly she coulda looked a bit more excited, but there you go!) Anyway she’s insanely lucky to have such a lovely foster home and people who care for her – she looks sooo happy there and for this we are so very grateful. Now we’re working to get Pip home to Australia ASAP when flights resume. Thank you Lynn and Ellen, you’re simply fabulous human beings #guardianangels #amazinghumans #covidfoster #theadventuresoffranklyandpip #gulfstreamdolphins #landlubberdog #doxie #weinerdog #sausagedog #noplansjustoptions

Na drugoj strani sveta, Zoe je ustajala u 4 ujutro svakog dana kako bi se bavila beskrajnim papirologijama koje bi joj omogućile da uveze psa iz SAD u Australiju, a preko video poziva je redovno bila u kontaktu sa svojom ljubimicom.

“Slikala sam je i kačila na društvene mreže, Pip je počela da razvija sopstvenu bazu obožavalaca”, priča sa smehom.

Ubrzo je postalo jasno i da neće biti moguće da se Ilbekovi vrate u SAD zbog ograničenja putovanja, tako da je Pip morala sama na dug put do Australije. To nije bilo lako organizovati.

“Da biste izvezli psa iz Amerike, potrebno je da dobijete američku deklaraciju u kojoj se potvrđuje da je pas dobrog zdravlja i da je imao određene testove krvi u vezi sa besnilom. To se radi u Njujorku, koji je sada bio zatvoren. Dakle, pokušaj da se nešto takvo uradi bilo je izuzetno teško”, kaže Zoe.

Kada je konačno dobila sve dozvole da dovede Pip, australijski avio prevoznik je objavio je da više ne vozi pse, pa je Zoe krenula da razvija strategiju da Pip dočekaju na Novom Zelandu.

Samo je trebalo dopremiti je do Los Anđelesa, odakle je imala let za Novi Zeland, a i to je značilo mnoge komplikacije pošto su letovi stalno otkazivani, a mnogi prevoznici nisu prihvatali životinje.

Zoe je odlučila da na društvenim mrežama potraži pomoć, pa se Melisa Jang, koja radi za fondaciju za spasavanje pasa Sparki Foundation, prijavila da leti sa Pipom preko Amerike.

Potom je Pip predata Jetpetsu, organizaciji koja se bavi transportom kućnih ljubimaca, koja ju je stavila na let iz Los Anđelesa za Okland.

Njena porodica, ali i svi njeni privremeni staratelji, kao i fanovi – svi su napeto pratili Pipin let ka kući.

Sailors, travelers (!) and friends in the USA – can you help me find a domestic travel buddy for Pipsqueak? As many of you know, our mini Weiner dog Pip has been a Covid refugee in North Carolina for the last 3 months, being looked after by an amazing foster-mum in Hillsborough, NC but we need to get her home to Australia! Yesterday Pip was finally granted something no human being on earth could currently acquire – an import permit to Australia! And we’ve found her a flight from LA to Melbourne, Australia, via New Zealand BUT we need to get her from the East Coast USA to the West and into LA on the 20th July (or the day before). Flying her cargo is possible but stressful, not direct and can get cancelled if it’s too hot that day! So I am looking for someone who might be flying out of North Carolina or others like Richmond, DC, Philly or Atlanta on the 20th July and would agree to take her in cabin. She is packed and just about ready to go! Having visited over 20 countries already and crossed the Atlantic with us for 24 days at sea this flight should be a piece of cake for her! Will you share this post with anyone who still flies across the USA in this crazy new world we now all live in? Thank you 🙏 #bringpiphome #covidrefugee #helppip #doxie #doxiesofinstagram #sausagedog #travellingdog #australiabound #dachshund #dachshundsofinstagram #covidtravel #headingeast #homewardbound

Pip je u Okland stigla 23. jula, prenoćila je i odletela u Melburn, gde je morala da provede 10 dana u karantinu. Naravno, to nije bio kraj njenom putovanju – baš pre nego što je trebalo da odleti za Sidnej, uvedene su stroge mere, Australija je zaključana. Zoin brat Rob, koji živi u Melburnu, pristao je da primi Pip na nekoliko dana, ali svaki let koji bi joj rezervisao bio je otkazan.

Na kraju je priča o maloj Pip koja samo želi da se vrati svojoj porodici stigla do medija i Virgin Australia Airlines je konačno pristao da je odveze do Sidneja.

A priča o Pip, kučencetu koje je prešlo 16.000 km da bi došlo do vlasnika, stigla je i do CNN-a.
