Regular readers of GN and those of you who have purchased my book, will remember the story of Lucho, another amazing survivor of the galgo hell in Spain, now living happily in the US. Lucho survived leptospirosis, leishmania and a leg amputation, yet still enjoys life, although he now finds walking any distance with his canine mates can be somewhat tiring. Here's what his Mom Chris says.
' Lucho's difficulty is in walking any distance. He can go several houses up the street, then needs to come back home. Whatever happened to him in Spain that caused him to lose his rear leg resulted in twisting his spine. His back is arched and his hip is abnormal so his one back leg is not strong. He gets around okay...up and down 3 steps to go out to go potty and he gets up on the sofa.....but we can't very well take the others for a walk and have him home alone howling!'
So here he is riding in style! Eat your hearts out, galgos everywhere!!
