Our ‘Ibbi’ and his sister ‘Monet’ arrive safely after their journey from Sweden.
The AQIS attendant said they came out of the crate wagging their tails and jumping all over the Quarantine staff who said they seemed to act like they’d just flown in from Sydney!
I visited them in the afternoon of the day they arrived and took some pictures. They felt right at home thanks to their carer Nicole who has “fallen in love with them”.. She adores whippets and mentioned she wanted to get one herself!
Here they are resting after their trip
With their carer Nicole who they took to immediately
Ibbi loves to give kisses and was very taken by Nicole in Quarantine

Saying goodbye to Sweden..
