A road trip companion

By Sakshi Agrawal

On New Year’s, the Nezic family drove 2000 kms from Melbourne to the Gold Coast with their dog, Alexi.

Almira Nezic said it was probably a crazy thing to do but they couldn’t leave their dog behind.

She said that they wanted to take Alexi so they decided to take their car, instead of a flight.

“On the first day, she was just standing and looking out the window. She didn’t know she could lie down. But then the next day, she learnt and just slept the whole day. Even when we were coming back home, after the trip, she just slept the whole way back,” Almira said.

When asked if they plan to take another road trip, she said, “Yes, we would take it sometime but would not go that far.”

She said the family loved the trip and so did Alexi. “We had a good time with her,” she added.

Alexi, a Multi Shih Tzu, was adopted from a pet shop in Melbourne, three years ago. Since then, she has been the fourth member of their family.

Almira said before Alexi joined the family, coming home and talking to her husband and son was just normal.

“Now, when we come home, it’s much more exciting because we are greeted with Alexi jumping on us and our day becomes much better,” she said.

The family takes her out for a walk at least once a day but on Almira’s day off, she has two walks in a day.

Talking about her sleep schedule, Almira said Alexi lived a normal dog’s life by sleeping all day and, in the past three years, Alexi hadn’t damaged anything in the home.

“I wish I could live her life and be a dog. She does not have to go to work or school, but just sleep every day,” she laughed.

She feels that everyone should have a pet in their house. “When you have a dog in the house, you feel more relaxed and there is so much love. It’s hard to explain but she [Alexi] brings so much love in the house. It’s simply amazing,” she added.
