A new Beginning.
2012 /2013 Opened up a new beginning for 112 Carlota Galgos.
Over the years we have rescued so many galgos and rehabilitated so so many. The stables were a blessing and helped us restore so many souls.
In October 2012 we moved to "the Finca 112 Carlota Galgos" an opportunity or a blessing, the 2 combined! I know for sure it changed all our lives as a family, but mine the most.
After years of being at the stables and the physical demands of the care the galgos needed there, the finca gave way to a different growth.
We grasped the opportunities with all hands and started work on the bays that needed to créate safety for the galgos. WOW what a differance for some of the galgos from the Stables life to the finca.
Their very "own" orchard!
The relief in seeing these lost souls play around the trees took my breath away more than once.
I was in awe of a feeling which oozed soul, and Finca 112 Carlota Galgos was up and running.
Having had years of writing and publishing Id also written many an email and found some incredible friends along the way. Gosh, those who helped me keep afloat at the stables.. and just keep plugging away. Little by Little. To you all, you know who you are, you will always be in my heart. No matter if you donated a coat, 1 euro, or 50 euros, I know each one of you as my galgo saviours.
Marianne camae into our lives moving away from her frienship via email, and into a real growth of warmth. Excelling in all ways, I was enabled to be blessed by her help. Thus allowing me to concéntrate on rehabilitating these souls who came to the finca. Honoured she chose to write her blog on 112 carlota Galgos.. took my breath away. In memory of Jade lives on.. and on... and on..
Not long after our move to the finca I was contacted by a friend Marie. Asking me if I would mind a couple coming to visit. For they were amazing people, and a beautiful couple. I of course said Fab!
In steps Chrissy and David into the lives of 112 carlota Galgos. WOW, what a year of amazing photographs and fun. Aside the fab shots of beauty which Chrissy masters with her simple camera and incredible eye, her friendship and warmth sailed straight through to my heart.
Dave became Dionis rock in that if for just one day a week Dioni wasnt here, Dave would be. If Dioni was here, well,.. they Heard me say all the more " and... what about this, Ive had an idea.. its surely only a 5 minute job!" And the list of ever to do things gets longer as I see future benefits unfold before my eyes for the happiness of the galgos.
Along the way has been my close friend Debs. what can I say about Debs.. always there for a giggle and a hug, and whenever needed by my side. From the stables to the Finca, I have Susana to thank ... Susana who comes once a week without fail. Having been told about the Finca, Susana pushed me to come and see it.. .. I have to say, none of us ever want to leave here, needless to say niether do the galgos who are on their way to entering through the gates of finca 112 carlota galgos Orchard. A galgo and pod friend Susana, and an amazing person. Incredibly special times.
This year has blessed us in so many ways... It really is incredible.
In this blesses the galgos. The work and cases we have seen have taken my all at times but to see them reach a place of peace, means everything.
The finca has become a full time job and and passion. Aside Dionis working day at the office, he has a million Jobs to do at the finca, couldnt be without him and the family as all of us together make this what it is. Home for the galgos who make it to safety here.
Mr.Ebro came into our lives not long after we had the finca, his best friend to this day lives on in our hearts. Jadey.. a symbol of the Spanish Galgo and the pain they live through how she tired and could not go on.
The day I said goodbye, I will never forget. Along the way, Ebro had the world behind him. His will power was like no other and his message so clear "when strong isnt good enough be stronger!"
He made it thanks to so many many incredible people, a unity of love across the globe for Ebro and his best friend who left the earth, grew wings and became the angel we all need by our sides to carry on.
Through Ebro I was introduced to so many people, people who didnt know about us and our work. Where we had been and what we had been doing, for we didnt shout about it, we simply just got on with it. BUT... the joy in finding new friends has been overwhelmingly beautiful. To which every single day I give thanks for.
The cases we have taken in, rehabilitated, cared for and found loving homes for has been incredible. Extending our family to the galgos new families has been amazingly beautiful. 112 Carlota Galgos grows.
For many that know me, know that the goal is the educational centre. This is where we work towards creating change via the youth. Teaching them the better ways of responsibility and promoting love of the galgos.
This is what Finca 112 Carlota Galgos stands for.. LOVE! In that we received many a visitor over the past year, taking on the daily chores of the finca, and learning all about the galgos care and helping us with hands on deck has been incredible. Fun times, and serious times, and heartfelt moments of magic which many wont forget, least of all me.
Amazing times have been had and we so hope for so many many more. All the while in awe of the galgos who breathe the peace and tranquility which the Orchard offers.
Everyday that passes by is the best Ive ever had in my life. I adore the galgos, and fight constantly for their welfare. To have hope, and bring those we can to safety. Ive been told by those who visit the orchard oozes tranquility and healing as much for people as it does via our work for the galgos.. an honour I feel that to be as my all is in this, every ounce of my being is for the galgos.
To ALL who help us exist, my heart is filled with gratitude .. so watch this space, come on over and see what were all about. The family grows with every adoption, and if I was anymore proud, Id burst!
In Galgo affection, and thanks, always.
