Sunday Salute - Nikki!

This week, our Sunday Salute goes out to our dear friend Nikki of South Africa!

Frequent readers of our blog may remember previous posts about Nikki - she has shared some incredible adventures with us, a frightening bath story (aren't they all frightening?!?), and we've shared some of her other great tales (tails?) with you, too! And now ... she's about to set out on a really exciting endeavor! She's helping her bipeds move! Check out the scene at her house:

This isn't just any "ordinary" move! Nikki and her bipeds (and her cat friend, Kengele) are changing hemispheres! They're moving all the way from South Africa to Northern Cyprus (TRNC)!

Look at how hard Nikki's been working!

I need some peace and quiet!

Woo is me; this is incredibly hard work!

She helped them get everything all packed up, supervising everyone and making sure everything was squared away! "Hey! Be careful with my toys!"

Nikki made sure everything was loaded on to the truck, then waved her "stuff" good-bye! "See you in NC!"

Nikki and her bipeds fly out on the 30th. Her bipeds will fly from South Africa to Dubai, then to Larnaca in Southern Cyprus -- like so:

Nikki's route will take her to Amsterdam, Istanbul, then Nicosia. Here's her route:

That's a LOT of flying around! Kengele the kitty will fly out and meet them later; she had some things to take care of first.

Please say some prayers for Nikki and her family; this is a big move for them, and scary plane rides for Nikki and Kengele.

Nikki, for all you do - and for the new adventures you're going to have in Northern Cyprus - we salute you! Bon voyage!

  1. WOW, I've never met a world traveling doggy before. I hope everything goes OK for Nikki when she is separated from her humans. Mom said that would make her very nervous.

    WOo woo, Kelsey Ann

  2. we are sending all kinds of good travel thoughts to Nikki and her people. what a HUGE move, wow!

  3. Wow, what an adventure for her! Nikki, you will be in my prayers until we know you are safe.


  4. That must be exciting but a bit nerve wracking. We'll be sending the whole family (peeps/pup/cat) our well wishes for a safe journey.

  5. Wow, what a long trip. And without her humans. We will be sending her good husky vibes and a safe journey.

  8. Wow, what a long journey. That will certainly be an adventure!

  9. Wow, that looks very scary! I wonder why Nikki and her kitty can't fly on the same planes?

    I sure hope they are all ok, and everything goes well. Who is feeding and watering them?
