Regular readers will have followed the stories of Estrela, Foguete, Duke and Esperanza - the galgo family rescued from an abusive alcoholic galguero. Teresa and her family have given their all - literally - to help the dogs in the very poor area of Portugal where they live. This year they personally have suffered as no one should - and now Teresa's daughter is appealing for help as her mother is ill from the strain of it all. Please help her get back on her feet and continue helping the animals - who would suffer without them. Please share.
Lidia did a wonderful job of rescuing Yuki from the streets, in terrible condition. She and the vets have healed her body and given her the chance of a forever life in a loving home. See the video here (5 1/2 mins)
I was sitting here with my thoughts, looking back over time.
Just a mere girl I was at your feet, the foot that booted me regularly. I wondered when the day would be, when I'd be free from the shame I felt.
I wandered by your side Sr.Galguero as a good galga should and on many occasion I know you thought you broke me. You almost did!
At just a year old I'd been born into hell, I knew nothing more than the life I led. Shamed, doomed, and hollow. Fear striking me at every move. How I lived on my nerves .. Oh how I did.
Galgos Ethique Europe was formed in 2009. Those of you who have read my book will know I mention them. 4 years have now passed and I was recently in contact with Joelle for an update on their work. Here's what she writes.
'In 2009 Galgos-Ethique-Europe (GEE) was formed to create a collective mouvement for the protection of galgos, podencos and Ibizan hounds found in Spain and adopted in Europe. They issued an ethical chart aimed at creating a strong partnership between people involved in their rescue, having the same ethics and together move towards a collective effort to improve the law at the european level.

Don Quixote - rescued, rehabilitated and now looking for his forever home. Irene Allan writes.
'We took in a galgo in January 2014 which was on the street and he was in a very bad condition with Leishmanaiosis and a couple of large bullet wounds also. He has been in foster since then and has had all his treatment and the best of food and care.He has turned the corner and not the terrified boy when we got him.His last leish blood tests were last week (end March 2014) and were good. He is negative for ehrichlea and heartworm These are some before and one after Don Quixote, about 4 years old.
Hi folks, just to say I am away for a weekend with my daughter and won't have Internet access. So I've scheduled a couple of stories for you to read in the meantime. Will be back with you with galgo news from 8th April. As Typepad has now 'improved' their system - what is it with these computer geeks? - if it works well, we must change it?!! So bear with me, if your comments don't appear, it's because I have to moderate them now and I can't do it till I get back on a computer next week....progress, heh?!
