Here is a recent picture of Slinky which brought a tear to my eye. She has her name on her tag, and that made me weep when I considered how her life had been. A dog with no name, no home and no love. Now look at her !!

I have this picture on the wall alongside those of my other loved pets, past and present :D

What a lucky dog! She is gorgeous and it's so nice to have a happy story for a change.

Well we are now seven months on and I thought a report was in order.
Slinky continues to thrive, when released she runs for Spain ! Trog should really have called her Forrest. She is brilliant in the apartment, and strangely does not bark, she still is very wary of strangers and someone must have been very active with a stick at some time in her past.
One clue to her being "abandoned" we have become aware of is that she 'looses' the way back if she gets too far away and seems to rely on sight rather than smell.
From our apartment we look out over one of the short walks and I have observed that if she can't see my wife she gets quite distressed and runs in circles, I direct my wife by phone to where she can be seen and all is well.
She might simply have lost her owner, there again by the way she cowered (getting better) we will never know.
We are delighted we took her on.
Some pictures of a happy dog. Thanks Trog wherever you may be now.

we had to have a german pointer put down :( he was a lovely dog, but developed epilepsy, to the point of attacking anyone and anything that got in his way of darkness.

"ali" was a lovely dog, that used to stand on his hind legs and "box" .. (hence "ali")
Alhaurin el Grande since ´99, working at the airport since 2011.

I am reluctant to re-open this old thread, however there is a twist that I thought to share.
Slinky went to the Rainbow Bridge two weeks ago tomorrow, she had a paralysed larynx and she gradually became unable to breathe. Had to happen.
Now the twist.
On Wednesday night a dog was abandoned next door, we live in the Campo and this was a deliberate act. The lady next door brought him round on Thursday morning, compare the pictures, fate has sent a Slinky double.
He is just over two months according to the vet.

That, in a way, is lovely.
Hope you both have a good life together. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks for that, I remember Slinky. Sad but a happy ending for another dog.

I just read this post to the end, not realising that it started approx 10 years ago! I haven't been on this forum for a long time as returned to the UK in 2009. However, I was recently thinking of buying a small property in Spain to spend some of the year but I'm still traumatised by the treatment of animals in the country. I know things are bad here in the UK too but it's only visible to me on tv. In Spain it's so openly visible and really troubles me. We returned with 3 dogs ourselves! I can see some improvements as our Spanish family and friends have small dogs in apartments who they adore and treat well, seems more a problem with the local campo folk and returning inconsiderate Brits? Well done to you Lyric and the many other caring folks.

I too haven't been on the forum for a while, I have been looking through the posts. My eyes have watered a bit by the end. Slinky sounded like a wonderful companion, how great a new Slinky has arrived :thumbup:
