This week the idyllic islands of New Zealand were devastated by a cyclone causing the country to declare only its third-ever state of emergency in its history. Two London Scottie Club members have uprooted from London and live in NZ. We catch up with one of them, Ed Gibbs and his Nessie. We discover the extent of the storm, as well as what it is like to own a Scottie that far Down Under. Ed also discusses the change he’s seen in Nessie following a 26-hour long haul flight to NZ four months ago. What we ran out of time to ask is: how on earth did Nessie not sustain life-changing injuries after she “cracked the screen of the TV when she jumped up mid-way through “watching” BBC Countryfile!
