Avalon, " I thought I should tell you a bit about myself. I am a rescued Galga from Spain. I am a nine month old sight hound. LP heard about the plight of Galgos in Spain many years ago when she was traveling through the Spanish countryside. She would see skeletons scattered here and there over the landscape. The bones appeared to belong to wild animals ; the skeletons were long and delicate and might pass for deer. She later learned they were the remains of sight hounds, hunting dogs killed by Spanish hunters when the hunting season ended. She vowed she would help Galgos one day if she could . You can google Galgos to learn more about the genocide of hunting dogs in Spain."
Avalon, " My mom was rescued off the streets of Spain along with me and my nine brothers and sisters. If you google , "Vera and her pups", you will read a remarkable tale about my mom and how courageous she was and what she did to save us, her pups. This is me a few months after I was rescued."
Avalon, " This is the first photo of me that LP saw. She liked what she saw in my eyes."
Avalon, " This is me on my first day in my new home. LP fed me and then gave me a bath and a new collar. I decided these toys were all mine!"
Avalon, " I have already been on quite a few adventures since my arrival in Vancouver."
Wilhelmina, " I actually like having a little sister to play with!"
Duffy, " I am sharing my bed with Avalon. I am very good at sharing!"
Malou and Levon, " We are the established Queen Malou and King Levon of this household and Avalon, and all the dogs are bowing to our demands at all turns!"
Avalon, " I am seeing all kinds of new and wonderful creatures in the forest!"
Wilhelmina, " We are experiencing Avalon in Autumn!"
Avalon, " Here I am in my new bed."
Avalon, " My complete name is Avalon Winter Rose Tiny Dancer Bee. Avalon, after the Avalon Peninsula here in Canada, one of LP's favourite places in the world. Now that I am a Canadian, she thought that was a good name for me .Winter, because I was born in the winter. Rose, after Isadora Gypsy Rose.Tiny Dancer, after Esme and Bee after Mitalee HoneyBee. My name is Avalon Winter Rose Tiny Dancer Bee and I am happy to be safe here in Vancouver, Canada. I cannot wait to meet all my new friends here in Blogville!"
