This is a sickeningly tragic story which was been published on Save the Galgo on Facebook. Tom Brown has sent it to me to share with those of you who have not read it. Apologies to Tom, as it got lost in all the posts.
'Pasha – The bitter sweet story of a Galgo in Spain
We came to Spain over 7 years ago and built a house and studio in the mountains of the Costa Blanca. Our ancient whippet lurcher Bill came with us and lived in our shed while we built the house. We decided to give a home to a Spanish galgo, so the timid but very beautiful Mia joined us in our first year. Old Bill made 16 years and actually made it into the new house and claimed his spot. When he died we took on another Galgo Pasha who already came with an interesting and checkered history.
