Spending six months of the year away from her Ballarat home is tough at times for Kaitlyn Ashmore.
Family, friends and work, the 26-year-old uprooted her life to live between Queensland and Victoria to achieve her AFLW dream.
While the hard-running Lion lives within a drop punt of the Gabba and is loving her time in the Sunshine State, it’s come with a cost.
“The two things that I miss the most are my family and my dog,” Ashmore told AFLPlayers.com.au.
“I get a bit emotional about it… even my dog. My dog’s name is Billie and we’re pretty inseparable when we are together.”
You can only imagine her reaction when Billie showed up on her doorstep on a random Tuesday afternoon, thanks to Jetpets.
AFLPlayers.com.au, in a new partnership with Jetpets, are bringing to life the ‘Pet Pals series’ to showcase the pets’ personalities and their importance to Australian footballers.
Jetpets are an animal transport business that offers a complete pet travel service where many clients enjoy home pick up and delivery to their new address. The organisation has been the market leader in transporting animals around the country and across the globe for over 26 years.
The Jetpets team of pet travel experts includes resident veterinarians, pet handlers and pet travel consultants, who all play a key role in reuniting and bringing families together and were on-hand to reunite Billie with Ashmore safely.
Stay tuned for the next instalment of our Pet Pals series.
