THANKS!

First of all sorry for not updating before but we were since saturday without electricity due to the storm of the century.

It was a long journey, very bad weather on the way down, ice, snow and bad visibility … we stayed at our dear friends place in Seville and because of the late vaccination of the dogs, we had to wait one day more to go to the Jerez killing station. At arrivel we were expected by Maria del Sol and Ana but unfortunantly we did not receive any help from the employees of the killing station, on the contrary, they did everything possible to make our rescue nearly impossible by blocking our way out, by insulting our driver, etc. and on top of it it was raining cats and dogs and we could not even take any pictures as we new, that by 15h in the afternoon they will close and we will not be able to take any more dogs if we are not done by then. But we finished just 5 minutes before they closed and all 20 dogs were savely loadad in the van. The dogs looked surprisingly well, had been well fed and the volunteers there do a good jobe, without them , the dogs would have a real bad life.

Thanks to Ruth from SALVANOS and Maria del Mar from the VILLENA Shelter, we could leave 7 dog in fosterfamilies near Murcia and continued up north when the storm of the century hit us full strength with windforce of hurricane strength and we had to stop for 7hours because it was too dangerous to continue with the van. We went to a burger place to ask water for the doggies and the ladies there were so nice to give us ALL the hamburgers (leftovers) for our hounds. They loved them and each one ate 2. We had fun feeding them and all the dogs with wagging tales in the van. We walked them in a underground parking because the storm was so strong, it was dangerous to be outside. Finally it got a little better and we left Elche early in the morning and by 3 in the afternoon we met our 3 fosters near Tarragona.

We continued to Gava where we left the last 7 dogs in care of Xabier and his friends until we will be able to rehome them. 2 galgas are sitting on our sofa and a lovely big male galgo is on our drivers setee, we called him NAS (nose in catalan because his forebite)

It was an exhausting and very hard trip but thanks to dear Albert and his professional driving ME MADE IT SAFELY HOME!!!

FINALLY ON THE WAY!
FINALLY ON THE WAY!
