Bebe and myself wish all Podenco Post readers a peaceful and joyous Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous 2019. Thank you all for continuing to read the News and supporting the appeals to help need hounds.
My adorable little Bebe is 16 years old now, slowing down a little but still bossing the galgo pack around! Below are a few pix we're sharing with you, including one of the first ones I received when she was rescued with an injured hip from a road in Seville. Such a tiny skinny traumatised little podenca.
There's also one of her in her favourite spot in front of the fire with buddy Polar from Pepis Refuge and another with Bracken from Galgos del Sol. Also helping Polar, Carmela and Bracken clean up the barbeque!
'Three weeks ago my life changed forever and it all feels surreal and I think that Warren has gone out and will be coming back and I miss him so much and so the dogs they keep looking at me for answers. He would have hated that he has left me with everything to sort out but thankfully he will never know for he died in his sleep. I never told him enough times I loved him or appreciated all the hard work he did but I loved taking photos of him with the dogs and it was my way of saying we are a team and I couldn’t do this without you.
I hold on to the last day we spent together it was a lovely warm winters day in Spain and we spent most of the day out in the paddocks with the dogs . It was just one of those rare days that felt so relaxed and lots of laughter and in the evening he cooked me one of my favourite dinners, a quiet night in watching a film and surrounded by the dogs, just content in each others company, everything to look forward to and now that has all gone.
Meet Vera, a pocket sized podenca only a year old. She's a failed hunter and has an injured hip and pelvis, probably from a bad kick. Vera needs a lot of help, for her veterinary expenses, the little one still doesn't have a foster home to recover from the operation. She is very sweet, sensitive and quiet and needs an opportunity to start being happy, she's already known the worst of this life, it's time to start enjoying it. Please give a home to this sweetheart. Adopt and save a life!
The second podenca is Susi, (photo below) a podenca who was abandoned and left to look after herself, only a baby. She is full of tenderness with her bambi face and her sweetness. She's loving and playful, sweet and sensitive and needs needs a family to grow strong, healthy and happy, someone to guide her on her way of socialization, so important in a puppy to feel safe and loved, someone to fall in love with her and want to give a home. She will be medium sized.
Leila's case is very sad, she appeared abandoned with her skin in very bad condition. She has spent a long time in the protectora waiting for a forever family. She is in foster receiving treatment for her allergy but there are a lot of dogs in the house and she really needs a place of her own. It's not fair for a podenca who is so incredibly good, cheerful and educated, so if you're looking for a bitch that will give you lots of love, and who would love to be pampered and have a friend for life, adopt Leila.
