Meet Chapati, a dog who has traveled more than any of us. Chapati was just a little pup when she was rescued by a Ukranian couple traveling to Kochi. And now she is well-traveled and even has her own Instagram account.
Kristina Masalova and Eugene Petrus left their job and set out on a world trip in February. But on their travels, they found a cute, four-legged companion.
At first, Chapati was a dehydrated, famished and flea-ridden puppy in Fort Kochi. Then she was adopted by the couple traveling to Kerala who named him Chapati.
Chapati is now a wayfarer dog on a real adventure – and she has thousands of followers hooked on her Instagram account.
Take a look!
It was the night of great changes in my life. A few hours ago I was nameless. I don’t remember when I lost my family, but this day I was alone in the streets of Kochi, left on a meter height pedestal to die. I was starving, overheated and dehydrated. I was scared and couldn’t already stay on my feet. I was weeping for help… 🐾 Day 1 🐾
I had sweet sunset dreams today, cause They are almost ready to adopt me 😍👨👩👧 At first They told that is impossible because of Their journey plans. So They expected to find either an owner for me, or a #dogshelter 😢. But now She started to google the subject and She’s almost sure, that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE 🌈 🐾 Day 7 🐾
My last day in Manali, the most peaceful and picturesque place I’ve ever seen 🌲🏔🌲 And as usually I need a rest after 15 minutes of walk ☺😁 Remember, my human friends: ☝🏼dogs have worse thermoregulation, than people; ☝🏼and puppies require even more temperature control; ☝🏼puppies also get tired easily. 🐶🐶🐶 So, please, take care of dogs and never overload us! In bad weather conditions we really require your help 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 🐾 Day 41 🐾
No dogs allowed?! Ok, can’t say I wanted it that bad 😝 But my mom is sad 😪 She always gets upset when she faces any demonstration of #dogunfriendliness Do you, guys, think that the situation could ever change? Do you believe in the world where human beings could perceive dogs as brothers/sisters/children? Could all the people around the world ever understand that every dog is a member of someone’s family? 🐾 Day 34 🐾
Hello, friends! I am online again and want to show you how I travel by trains 😉 This is my night train from Mumbai to Jodhpur 🛤 I love trains, cause I can sleep really tight there and also I sleep with my parents 😍🍾 But frankly speaking, now I’m traveling illegally 👮🏽🚓🤐 In India dogs can travel by trains only in AC First Class when you buy out the whole cabin, which costs even more expensive than a flight. As my parents are not on that budget, we prefer AC 3 Tier. So, each time we enter the train, I am hiding in my bag 🐣 Then, on our road, I have to hide under the sheet ☺ Lucky parents! Now I am small enough for this mischief to be managed 😉 🐾 Day 27 🐾
My last day in Goa, the most #petfriendly place I’ve been to. All the hotels in #agonda were opened to me. No problems in any cafes, they always gave me water and everything I need. Special thanks to #moonlightbarandrestaurant , #fatimascorner , #silentwaveshotel for their permanent patience to my crazy temper 😈😝 🐾 Day 23 🐾
Today I had quite an efficient day 😎 As I had diarrhea and my parents were really worried about me, we visited a vet hospital “Animal Medical Center”. There we met Dr. Sushil 🍣, who was very kind to me and was considered a very competent specialist by us. He examined my health thoroughly and prescribed some meds and diet. And what is really a great luck is that Dr. Sushil is also competent at dog exporting. He promised to help us with all required documents: an export permit to leave Nepal, a fit-to-flight certificate required by airways, and general health certificate for importing in Thailand. So we left my documents at his. Now we can relax and calmly go to Pokhara 🏔 And don’t worry, my friends, although I’m quite sad on this picture, now I really feel much better 😉 🐾 Day 52 🐾
