A friend for Avalon.

 Avalon, " I have a friend whose name is Nymeria. She is Mia's sister."


 Avalon, "For those of you who may not know, Mia is Wilhelmina's BFF. Nymeria is also a rescued sight hound from Spain. She is half Galga, like me, and half Podenco ; both breeds are used as hunting tools to be disposed of in cruel and inhumane ways, once the hunting season is completed. Nymeria came to Canada one week after I arrived."

Avalon, " Nymeria loves to tug on my jacket to get me to play!"

Playing with my friend Nymeria.

Friends tracking a supreme and unsurpassed scent!

Sighthounds gazing and observing.

Hound Bookends.

Beautiful , living creatures sharing our world to be valued, protected and loved.

Avalon, " I feel fortunate to have a friend in Nymeria."

Avalon, " Together we are looking toward our future in Vancouver, Canada with great anticipation!"

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

  6. How nice that you have a new friend, Avalon. My human gets so upset about places where animals are treated like they are disposable.

  7. You two are such special friends!

  8. It is nice that you have Nymeria as your special friend. You both have the bond of surviving the same beginnings.

  9. Awww what a lovely friend Nymeria is! Avalon, you and Nymeria are both beautiful. I love the adorable “hound bookends” photo :-) You are both very lucky to have come to Canada, to loving forever homes!

  10. Best friends are awesome! Sisters are great ... but sometimes you just want some-dog else to play with. We're glad Wilhelmina and Avalon have that luxury!

  11. Best furrends are wonderful! It is so great that you have a new furrend and one that can run as fast as you! My Uncle Robert has 2 Silkens, they too are sight hounds abd boy can they run!


We always love to hear from you!
