Zoe and Guy tell us they were forced to leave their dog Pipsqueak behind in America as they returned to Australia at the start of the pandemic lockdown, something they say was "absolutely heartbreaking."
The family was in Key West, Florida on their boat when the pandemic hit and due to complicated regulations, they could not bring their dog with them as they rushed back home to Australia before the borders closed. The family thought they would be separated from their beloved dog for just 4 to 6 weeks, but their separation turned into 5 months.
Amazingly, Pipsqueak made the journey home flying all the way back to her family unaccompanied. Guy says after some initial trepidation their dog recognized them at the airport and she was overjoyed to be home. The family says they were amazed by the outpouring of support and the offers to help they received from strangers and thank everyone involved in Pipsqueak's safe journey.
