Pumba & Nalaโ€™s journey home!

Update posted by Tracee Cullen On Jun 28, 2019

Hi everyone, so on Tuesday I took the pups for their measurements for the airline dog crate, they have grown so need large crates which is okay they MUST be comfortable to travel with adequate space and feeding etc.. however there is always something else in India.. always more to pay.. this has increased again with freight increase by at least ยฃ500.. but whatever is being thrown our way or however the goal posts keep moving.. I remain in positivity and following guidance and intuition.. kept going by all your love, support and donations to make this possible. Thank you again.๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

Pictures..

Driving to the vets and then at the house where they are boarding.. they happily stayed there, knowing where they are and other dogs to play with as well as a large garden. They have been so sensitive and unsettled this past week seeing my cases and packing up.. but just a few weeks now.๐Ÿ˜Š

Namaste,

Tracee, Pumba & Nala.xxx

So.. this morning after a very tricky time trying to liase with the Vet about how to coordinate the agents, government vet visit, flights and payment to each one from the UK, nothing could be done until I had a date & I couldnt have a date without funding.. a further call to the superstar that is boarding them agreeing to do it all in my absence when funded, still meant no progress though.. I was just seriously considering canx my flight home, had messged family & thought about trying to borrow the money to do it. (not feesible really as already spending huge chunk towards this behind the scenes) ..

..when I get a message from an Angel saying she would like to help and would share the page today and by this evening pay the remaining balance.. needless to say I was in tears!

Jacqui Warne is the Angel and her kindness is beyond belief.. I am deeply thankful and the pups will now get a speedy journey home.. for me it was a miracle this morning, just when it seemed the hardest point (and there have been some).

Jacqui has said simply she is able to help and knows it would make a huge differnce to the pups lives, she has seen the journey of the pups and has now become as all of you that donated a part of their journey.. and I cant wait for you all to meet them!๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•โค

The transaction has been done offline to avoid any extra fees but added to the total. So I will be making payment to get the process going.. yeah!

The funding page will remain up for the remaining days and should we receive any further donations then this would go towards the crates I have to buy & UK agent.. total ยฃ600.. or a bed for their new house as Jacqui said.. either way we have done it!

Thank you to everyone that has supported this funding, followed the pups story, shared the posts or just been kind!

Namaste - My Soul honours your soul.. it truly does and we will be sleeping a lot better tonight knowing that its not long now!

Hi everyone,

So good news is that there is now an additional ยฃ337.00 raise offline (by me) so it has helped considerably and reduced the amount needed now. The amount needed now is ยฃ1,628.55.

I am in a position to get the journey for these pups organised in the next cew days but would appriciate any help to give this a final push.

It is essential now to move this on so that the pups remain safe and secure and can relax into their UK life asap.

I realise that many of you have helped already but please share if I can just tip this a bit further it can be done quickly this end and remove any unnecessary stress for the pups and me!

They have been through quite a bit and the less waiting and shifting them around whilst waiting the better.๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

Thank you in advance.xx

These pups are just amazing.. this was their 1st day to run free on the beach (in Goa) a several weeks ago.. we had tried before but due to strays its tricky to find somewhere!

They have since both had ops.. Pumbas went well and Nala has had complications so still recovering from her second one.. this is the 3rd week of treatment and she is such a loving pup even when I am treating her wound with betadine๐Ÿ˜˜.. they both have so much to give and I am lucky to have them brought into my life.

The adopters have not worked out so they are going to stay with me.. this I feel has all along been divinely guided.. especially under the circumstances in which they came to me.

So I am now having to rethink their journey.. either they will stay in India a bit longer with me or I will push ahead for end of June return to UK.. a few days contemplation and trusting my intuition.

I have recieved such kindness from people contacting me recently to help that it has literally brought tears to my eyes.. so to those that have gone beyond in kindness Thank .. Thank you.. Thank you.. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• from both me and the pups. Xxx

Funding Page.. so I have much to update for the page as the past 6 weeks have been hospitals for me and vets for them๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜Š literally nearly everyday.. (thank goodness my mum stayed to help, she has now returned to the UK) & I am pleased to say ALL is well so I will update photos and progress and of course what is to happen now.. for all those now ready to help me with these pups I am very grateful.. this past few weeks has highlighted such cruelty here and we have also encountered/navigated some awful situations.. there are of course amazing animals lovers here too but for now the task is huge for those innocent souls relying on humans for initial kindness and food.

This is a brief update and I will post more soon.xx

Namaste - Tracee, Pumba & Nala.xxx

A very long journey to get to see these special souls.. but worth it.. even if they are a bit perplexed as to why I was visiting and not taking them.. (yet).. saw them just for an hour today. Just a few more days and they will be 'home'.. well Indian home anyway!

A little longer to wait for UK home.. as their journey continues and unfolds.. so does mine. The universe works in mysterious ways.. we simply must allow all that is..๐Ÿงก

Thank you to the amazing 36 people that have helped so far and donated to reach 21% funded, and to all that have shared and supported the pups journey.

It is very much appriciated.xx

So it is with the greatest pleasure I say.. today the pups blood results passed the required EU testing.. (Ironic it was the day we were meant to leave)!!

This is the biggest hurdle.. why we had endless visits to the vets and vaccines so precise as the titer test has to show the rabies vaccine as present.. so with hoops jumped and results back with certificate stamped.. I feel like I have one the lottery!

Now they have to wait 3 months and the rest of the process can continue. I will be returning to see them soon and can take it from there, funding dependant I hope to be able to make a decision soon.

I cannot thank you all enough so far for your help, support, kindness, sharing and funding.. to get us this far.. I have spent a lot on these souls and dont regret a thing.. they are very much worth it and have the most amazing unconditional love.. they are so intelligent I am sure they know whats going on!

'Indie' dogs.. well these 2 are more 'switched on' than collies in the UK.. I have never experienced such in tune pups.. a credit to us all.. I do hope you get to meet them one day. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™

Until then.. much love and gratitude from me & the pups.

Hi everyone... Firstly the pups.. Pumba & Nala are doing well and still enjoying their temporary 'home' whilst they are boarding and we jump through red tape and adhere to the strict procedures to get them home... :-) (It's a shame I don't live in Canada or other western countries that make this far easier..) Anyway..

After having discussed fully again where we are in the process now this far on and what else has to be paid for we have calculated to reduce the funding needed by ยฃ200... yeah!

So I have just now adjusted the funding page to reflect this.. I hopefully have not been to premature with this but I am doing as guided. The current costs now amount to with Funding fees included ยฃ2650.. for both pups.

The changes occur within the veterinary, government, EU and airline fees but have not been adjusted inline with currency conversation as it would be impossible to do so long term. I therefore will just continue to pay for anything else outstanding along with their general wellbeing, food, boarding etc.

Thank you again and PLEASE SHARE!! you never know who you will reach..

Namaste,

Tracee.xx

It's been a hard day for pups.. today was the day they had there bloods done ready to be sent to the EU we will be doing this via Belgium! and they have also had today their final puppy booster vaccinations.

Still not keen on the car so it always a bit of a fraught journey with much drooling try to keep from car sickness.. bless them. Crashed out asleep on return and cuddled together for peace and contentment.. these puos must always be together!

I will be returning next month to see them, have them with me for sometime and continue the journey of this process.๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

Glad they love cats too as I have a very patient 'Spooky' awaiting to meet them.xx

Please share everyone as your help with funding and support all round has been essential.. I couldnt have done this without you all.๐Ÿ™gratitude for your kindness. X

Namaste - My soul honours your soul,
