This web page is dedicated to every Spanish Galgo who is being tortured as you read this, and awaiting the kind hand of courage to come in and rescue them. Every letter I have written, had published, and every person I have spoken to about the galgos, it is in dedication to them. To the associations who work tirelessly to save, mend and further protect Galgos from the cruel hands of the hunter.

Celebrating the Galgos in France - 1st Fete des Galgos

Heres what our dear friend Beryl shares with her 1st Fetes de Galgos France. So honoured to work with Beryl, she is a great angel for the Spanish galgos and Podencos.

Sunday, 12th September was the date organised for our first Fun Dog Show, Fete des Galgos, Craft Fair, display of classic cars and motorcycles and Have a Go Archery. There should also have been a display of dog agility, but the French club decided not come! Their loss, as everyone had a fantastic day and there have been many demands to repeat the event next year. So, 11th September 2011 is the date and the event will be even bigger. I won't say better, because everyone keeps saying what a marvellous day it was.

Our wonderful very experienced dog show Judge, Stephen Moon, tells me his friend Graham, who has offered to judge the show next year, will also be judging at Crufts show in England next year! Can't get better than that. Stephen said he thoroughly enjoyed his day, said what a lovely attitude the participants had. The show was meant to be fun, and that is exactly what it was.

So, folks, here's a picture gallery to share with you. And remember that, on the same day, brave Lisa jumped out of an aeroplane at 5,000 feet over Seville, Spain, to celebrate our day too. If you haven't donated to her marvellous achievement, please email a Paypal donation to comdelrio@hotmail.com for the association 112 Carlota Galgos.



JMB animal feed supplies who very kindly gave a 4kg bag of dog croquettes to the 1st and 2nd placed dog in each class

President of L'Europe des Levriers, Beatrice Monnet, Secretary Pierrette, and Benedicte, husband, family and half a dozen galgos all supported the event as did Freddy and Gigi with Pepere. I did pop out with my own galgas Sahara and Carmela but, unfortunately, such were the demands on my time and attention that I had to hand them over into the safe hands of Tim of Scootbooks.com, publishers of my book.

I need to mention also David Best and Doreen Jeapes, who did a marvellous job as Entries Secretaries, Dorothy, Trevor and Sue who were the stalwart coffee and tea makers for the dog show, (Dorothy made the beautiful cake for Guess the Weight), Joint Aid, natural product for arthritic dogs and horses, and Saint Pardoux Pension pour Chiens who sponsored the rosettes this year.

Last but not least, I must give a special mention and BIG THANK YOU to Pete Dobson, who manned the gate and collected 1 euro for every car which came and parked. Originally we had organised a team of 4, but one had to return to England on the last minute for a friend's funeral, one had a bad back, and my David was pulled every which way with a tent blowing away and electricity power cuts! Pete was out on the gate for 5 or 6 hours, an absolute Star!

I had a marvellous team of helpers who all enjoyed the day and are keen to get involved in the organisation for next year!

Good Luck to GRIN for their Fiesta des Galgos on 19th September!
