ON THE ROAD AGAIN….

19 May

Finally  the 4 quarantaine podencos from the canary islands could cross the channel and begin a new life in the Uk. Thanks to Jill and her husband who came to Reims to pick them up!!!!
The podencos loved Jill’s cuddles and a short walk plus some food before they continued the trip.

And then they continued to the channnel and we went to visit our dear friend and tireless collaborator BARBARA LEFRANC, founder and president of the association LE BULLETIN DES LEVRIERS – PRO-GALGO FRANCE who spoilt us with a wonderfull lunch. The dogs PODDACK and PASHA could stay with Barbie to be rehomed in France.
After a short siesta we loaded the donations into the van. AMAZING what the volunteers and Barbie had collected! over 200kg of dog food, 20kg of cookies for the doggies, coats, bedding,  medication etc.

From Paris we went to Clermont-Ferran were we left the little Italian Greyhound LEO with his new mum Beatrice. He will be a very spoilt little boy there!

MAXI lässt ihren Freund JAIME nicht losfahren!and this is how MAXI said goodby to our driver JAIME, she just adored him!

We would like to say thank you to Jill and her husband for the perfect transport, to Elkie from PRO-GALGO UK for organizing the trip in the UK, to Barbie and her helpers from France for all the tireless work you do for our hounds and of course a big thank you to Jaime for the save and always perfect transport.
