“Milo and Nala are like Yin and Yang.”
Adorable Kelpies Milo and Nala moved from Brisbane to Stockholm with Petraveller. Get to know more about the two adorable doggies and their international pet travel experience with Petraveller.
Lovisa brought Milo home from a farm outside Brisbane while he was eight weeks old. Lovisa remembers, “He was a big puppy. I was told he was the most dominant one out of them all, and I fell in love with his personality and his cheeky behaviour. Today he is the complete opposite, he’s the most relaxed kelpie you’ll ever come across.” She laughs and adds, “He turned out 10kg larger than I expected, but he’s such a sweet and gentle soul.”
Two years later, Nala (also a Kelpie) joined Milo to keep him company. Nala travelled from Townsville QLD down to Gold Coast to join the Liljekvist family. Lovisa says, “Nala was eight weeks old, tiny, full of beans and no fear whatsoever of Milo. She was as big as his head. They kicked off immediately and have been best friends and partners in crime ever since. They love snuggling up to one another and chase each other around. They’re like Yin and Yang, complementing each other perfectly yet so different, like day and night.”
Milo and Nala are as different as chalk and cheese. Milo is super calm and relaxed, whereas Nala could easily run a marathon or two (each day!). Since Milo and Nala have been with Lovisa for a while, they are a big part of her life. They have made a huge impression on her friends, roommates, colleagues, etc. Lovisa says, “They have so much love to give, and their charming personalities really shines through.”
Lovisa talks about Milo’s personality, “Milo is a wise boy and super well behaved. People tend to love him at first sight with his calm manners and laidback personality.” Milo truly adores Nala and happily lets her have her way of things. He gives up his toys and is very gentle with her. Lovisa says, “They are two brilliant and charming characters.”
After residing in Australia for seven years, Lovisa moved back to her homeland in Stockholm, Sweden, due to personal reasons. She says, “With little notice, I flew home, leaving everything behind in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the dogs. Since it is a huge challenge to return to Australia during the pandemic, I decided to stay with my family in Sweden until further notice.”
Lovisa adds, “My dogs are a huge part of my life without a doubt, and I have never been this long apart from them. Milo and Nala have kept me company most of the time, and I miss them more than words can explain. Now that I’ve made a decision to stay, it’s non-questionable whether I would fly the dogs over - 100%! They’re a major part of the family.”
Based on a friend’s recommendation, Lovisa contacted Petraveller to handle her pets’ move. She says, “I was recommended by a close friend who used Petraveller when he flew his dog last year from Australia to Sweden and had nothing but good things to say. Rather than going with a different pet transport agency, it was a no brainer to go with Petraveller, seeing all the positive response from others and how well they’ve looked after us so far.”
Milo and Nala had a comfortable flight from Brisbane to Stockholm. Lovisa was satisfied with their pet travel experience. She says happily, “Thank you, Petraveller, for all your hard work and patience in getting my beloved Milo and Nala to me here in Sweden all the way from Australia. I am beyond grateful and happy with the service. Petraveller was very patient and helpful in this big process. My doggies were beyond themselves and in great spirits when they arrived. We are happy to be finally reunited after six months.”
Thank you, Lovisa, for choosing Petraveller to relocate your precious fur babies. We wish you the best and lots of cuddles to adorable Milo and Nala.
