I feel emotions, just as you do. Just like you I feel Love, I feel Fear, I feel Pain and Joy. I also feel Grief!
I am not born knowing how to fit into your life. I will sometimes get it wrong. Sometimes I will not understand what you expect. I may fear things or act in a way you don’t understand. I may not understand how you are acting, or that strangers to the home mean no harm. I may not know what is acceptable to play with and what is not! I have to be taught these things, just as you had to be taught as a child.
I am an individual, and just like you may not fit exactly into your expectations.
Please teach me. I like to learn. I like to please. I love to be loved.
Just because I may make mistakes please don’t discard me.
I should not be an ‘until’ dog. I should be a forever dog!
Eva, Špela, Urška &Žiga will run the 10km marathon in Medina del Campo in aid of Protectora y Santuario Scooby on 29 April. We are hoping you will support them and Scooby by sponsoring one or all of the runners per kilometre.
We know how much you love to support the Scooby animals and now, for the first time ever, we have an amazing opportunity for Scooby to have a presence in the Medina del Campo annual marathon. Not only one runner, but 4 which will give the shelter an unprecedented profile on its home ground. The Scooby animals are so lucky to have these runners going to such lengths (lengths of 10km to be precise!).
If you would like to sponsor the runners, please go to the Protectora y Santuario Scooby Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/spascooby/ and write your pledge per runner in the comments fields under the announcement about the run. We will post each runner’s time after the race on 29 April and when you see this alert, please PayPal your pledge to Edwin@scoobymedina.com Please bear in mind that PayPal deducts a small fee from your pledge. Regardless of how you pay, please mark your donation “runnername&yourname”. If PayPal is not possible for you, please private message us for an alternative means. The closing date for payments is Friday 18 May 2018.
At long last the dreadful Canidrome in Macau, China, will close its doors and over 6oo greyhounds need to find forever homes, may of them from Ireland and the UK. Read the story here, please share and donate etc to help.
Protectora y Santuario Scooby - 'We have rescued these two Galgos Eva and Mon in a village from Segovia. Their owner had them in terrible conditions and the Civil Guard has opened him a file for alleged animal abuse. They are very skinny and have skin problems, probably due to poor feeding and to external parasites. Now we are going to give them all the necessary care so that they recover and can start a new and happy life as soon as possible.'

As you know, for over 10 years I have publicised the plight of the galgos and podencos of Spain and fundraised for several rescue associations. In latter years David and I have fundraised and supported Pepis Dog Refuge, Pedrera, Spain, as Jane and Alan Brian coped with up to 80 dogs dumped on them by the locals. They have both suffered ill health, Alan with heart problems, Jane with back problems, but the dogs always came first. Last September they decided to 'retire' and not to take in any more dogs.
Last week Jane suffered a massive heart attack and was rushed into hospital. Rachael Lepaege has rehomed many Pepis dogs in the UK and is taking the remaining 9 Pepis dogs this week. This is going to cost thousands and so along with my fabulous galgo Polar - a Pepis dog - I am asking all my friends here to donate something...no matter how small an amount...and share this appeal. Here's Rachael's message.
