I have just finished reading the book and it broke my heart. I just had to kep cuddling my two precious galgos.

It will take some time but I pray that eventually this terrible "holocaust" ends for such beautiful dogs and Spain wakes up to the responsibity it has.

We all must play our part in helping that day comes soon.

Bonjour

Thank you for commenting. I hope the book
helped explain the problems faced in trying to get change in Spain, with regard
to the annual holocaust. Thank you for supporting the galgos and for
caring. And Im collecting stories of adopted galgos now in forever homes,
if you would like to write 200-300 words about your two.

thank you so much for writing this book as hard and heartbreaking it is to read it is a must for anyone with any compassion for spanish hounds. i now am more informed on all the `politics`involved with the hunting situation in spain and feel more comfortable telling people the facts. my husband has taken the book to his workplace as some of his colleages didn`t understand his concern for the spanish hounds i am pleased to say they do now!!
thank you so much for all that you do for these beautiful animals

Bonjour

So pleased to receive your comments, this is exactly why I wrote the book. So many people have been unable to understand the complexities of why, however much we put pressure on Spain, nothing gets done.

I will post your comments on my reviews page, and thank you again for your comments, and for caring about the galgos. The more publicity we get for their plight, the more we can hope to help them.

Bonjour John

The book wasnt actually in print to send out until
the middle of June, so the first orders, including yours, were sent on 21st
June. We have now discovered that the rate recommended by the main post
office is an extremely slow one! A couple of people have only just
received theirs which were posted on the same date. Very
frustrating.

Since then, a different post office has recommended
another rate which is taking approximately 2 weeks.

Lets see what Scootbooks suggest.

Thank you, Jen, for your comment, which has been
added to my comments page. You are such a wonderful supporter of the
cause of the galgos, every single coat you make and every single donation you
give, makes a difference to a needy galgo, whatever the situation.

Senor Galguero needs plenty of tissues to hand -
Charl was drained of emotion after she wrote that - as you can imagine.
But it comes from the heart and is exactly what many a lost galgo must
feel. These dogs are so sensitive and so loving, they feel every slight
and cruelty .... which makes the annual holocaust all the more
terrible.

Thank you for caring and all your
support.

Amities

Beryl
