Due to the woman’s compassion and determination to not abandon her four-legged companion, the story of her escape from Ukraine while carrying her aging dog for more than 10 kilometres across the border has gone viral throughout the world.
Alisa wrote a first-person account of her family’s harrowing trip to The Guardian newspaper.
According to Alissa, she had the following to say about this:
There’s a lot of material we’ve lost.” My father has died. At the border, I was met by the love of my life. My heart is broken since I’ve never known life without him. His absence has left a void in my life that cannot be filled. The men who were supposed to accompany us aren’t here.”
Alisa works as a Python programmer for a German firm that assisted her in relocating her family and two pets, including her senior German Shepherd, to Poland. Despite this, due to his age and the mobilization order, her spouse was unable to cross the border.
According to the lady, there were a lot of automobiles near the Polish border, and she and her family couldn’t stay in the car for the next three or five days, so they opted to walk 10 kilometres in minus seven degrees.
Alissa expressed her thoughts as follows:
“My dog has shared all of our joys and sorrows with us.” All that’s left of his previous life is Mom’s dog. As a result, my husband used to carry our dog over his shoulders».
