Merry Christmas! Another Auction for Scooby, 12/4-12/12/11

Print from the Scooby Auction
Season's Greetings!

We just launched another auction for Scooby, which has a number of lovely gifts for greyhounds, galgos, cats and peeps.  Diane Ward and I worked on this one together, and it is hosted by  Mary LaHam, who coordinates and does the postings for all of the groups, did a phenomenal job guiding us throughout the posting process, and made sure that our items and descriptions are top-notch. HUGE thanks to Mary for all of her help!

The money raised from this auction will go for medical and food expenses for the animals at Scooby Medina del Campo.  Soon, we hope to have enough funds to build a much needed puppy house.  All of your donations, whether it be your time, items for the auctions, purchasing auction items, and regular support, are so very much appreciated. Scooby would not exist without you!

Merry Christmas to You and Yours, and Keep the Faith, as we move forward to 2012 and new adventures. Wishing you Blessings from Bless!

My Galgo is like any other dog... except, she's even more special :-)

Bless Easter - our adopted Galga from Scooby Medina del Campo
Isn't she lovely?
We adopted Bless in April of this year, please see my past entries for information:  A Journey: Adopting a Galgo. Bless has been a member of our family and pack for six months, and it's just getting better every day. It is amazing to see how well she has adjusted to relocating to California, joining our pack of two other dogs, a cat and us, and her new surroundings (a house, back yard with swimming pool, etc.)

She is truly a wonderful companion, although she's never been anyone's pet, but rather was raised to be a hunting galgo. Watch this video for a new perspective on galgos: commentary is in Espanol, however, you'll get the gist of it: Reportaje Canal Sur Maltrato Galgos.   These dogs are resilient souls just waiting for the love and lives that they deserve.

Just look at the good life that our beloved Galga, Bless has:

Bless and Jake (American Eskimo) barking at anyone who dares to walk past our home.
Bless happily chewing on her bone
Bless and Wilma all snuggled up - sleepy time
Bless is one of the joys of my life.

Success! Auction for Scooby North America Raises $3,800

"Galgo Cara"
Beautiful photo taken by Petra Postma of her sweet Galgo from Scooby Medina del Campo

One of the most popular items sold in the Scooby NA Auction

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the Scooby North America auction, which ran from 10/3-10/10/11. 
Hooray! We raised $3,800.00 :-)
Thank you for your support!
The funds raised from this auction will be used to support Scooby Medina del Campo in Spain. As mentioned in my previous blog postings, Scooby faces extremely challenging times. In the past few months, the situation at Scooby has become absolutely desperate. The shelter is completely full with 500 dogs, and adoptions have decreased significantly due to the global economic crisis. Scooby needs urgent support to continue to take care of the animals until finding them homes. Another eminent matter is that many galgos will appear at Scooby's doorstep once hunting season begins and ends.  We'd like to make certain that we can accommodate them as they arrive, or are left at the gates of the sanctuary.

We had hoped to raise enough money from the auction so that we could help with operating costs and for building a much-needed puppy house. We are very thankful that the auction was a great success, and that the funds will be put to good use for urgent needs. 

Behind the Scenes of the Auction
I had the pleasure of helping Diane Ward, who leads Scooby North America, with this auction. She is amazing! She organized the entire auction, rounded up all of the donated items, indexed and took photos of every item, is taking care of the invoicing and shipping. Whew!  She found a very good site, Auctions a la Carte for hosting the auction. I helped by grouping and posting the items, and monitoring and answering questions during the auction period. It was fun and interesting! Couldn't resist but to buy a few items myself. ;-) Most of all, it was rewarding to be doing something that helps Scooby and the wonderful galgos.

Thank You's
BIG shout outs to:
  • Diane Ward: Auction organizer, from beginning to end
  • Donors: Beautiful items that were very popular with the auction bidders
  • Bidders and Buyers: For participating in the auction and purchasing items
  • Auctions a la carte: For doing such a great job hosting the auction and helping with support questions
  • Scooby and the global support team: For everything that you do for the galgos and other animals
Bless and her fellow galgos and galgas thank you from the bottom of their sweet hearts!

Hasta Luego! Thank you for reading my blog.

Auction for Scooby Medina del Campo, 10/3-10/11/11. Please check it out!

Top 10 Reasons to Bid on Something in the Scooby Auction:

As a HUGE fan of Scooby and Galgos, what are the top 10 reasons that you should bid on something in the Scooby Auction:
  1. Galgos are possibly the most gorgeous and sweet pets that anyone could have, and we need help for the dogs at Scooby Medina del Campo. 
  2. If you have a Galgo or Greyhound, you must have the correct attire, coat, etc. to match the elegance of the breed. Not to be snooty, but they DO have so much class.;-)
  3. Galgos need your TLC, as many have been neglected, never loved or treated as pets. Yet they take to it so readily and easily.
  4. Scooby and the Staff give each and every Galgo care and loving that they could never have imagined in their hunting lives.
  5. Galgos have BIG hearts. They are ready to be your beloved pets in your home, and they adjust well. It's amazing!
  6. The Galgos adjust well to the pack. They fit well with other breeds, and even cats!
  7. Although Spanish, they adjust well to English, and I imagine other languages, as long as they are trained with love. Remember that "Treats" are the universal language of love for all dogs. :-P
  8. They are super intelligent and observant. Our Galgo, Bless, has learned everything about us, our home and has won our hearts, all within six months.
  9. Galgos are the forgotten by many, and many are unaware about them and their plight. Please learn more about them and take action.
  10. How could anyone resist the face and the sweet heart and love of a Galgo!

Urgent Situation at Scooby Medina del Campo - Galgo Sanctuary

Scooby Medina del Campo

Animal Sanctuary HQ for Galgos and many other Animals
Critical Situation - We need Help!
The issues with the global economy have impacted all of us.  There is so much need, and sometimes it seems that there may not be enough to go around.  So many people, animals and causes are so needy. It becomes overwhelming...

"Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't!" Eleanor Roosevelt  

Why would you choose one thing over another?  
To me, it's what's in your heart.  Somehow, you know what things you need to do in this life. If something is important, you will find a few dollars, hours or some other way to help with the things that matter. When all is said and done, we all have to decide what we'll leave as our legacy.

Our adopted Galga. Thank you Scooby!
What matters?
Here's something that matters to me and to many others whom I've connected with:  Scooby Medina del Campo, the Galgo rescue centre in Spain, where I recently visited, volunteered and also adopted my beautiful Galga, Bless.  As a non-profit organization, Scooby has experienced the impacts of the slowing economy.  In fact, their situation has become urgent.  If they cannot garner enough support for their needs, the facility will close by the end of 2011. Read more here.

"Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Meade

Scooby closing shop simply cannot happen!  There are many who care deeply and are taking action to help in every way that we can.  Here's what we're doing:
  • Many of us are making a commitment to give a monthly donation to help with the operating costs of running the Scooby facility.  This can be done via PayPal.  If you need more information for your Country, please let me know. (Leave a comment on this blog.)
  • Auctions are in progress:
    • The extremely awesome UK "Greyhound Compassion" organization and friends are currently holding an auction for donated items on Facebook. It looks as though they will raise well over £2000, and the auction is still going gangbusters.  Many thanks to organizer Heather Payne, for her dedication and diligence in helping Scooby.
    • Scooby North America, is planning to hold an auction in the early Fall, so stay tuned for more information on how to bid on the wonderful donated items to help Scooby.
We Need Dog Food Donations from a supplier in Spain
There is one HUGE thing that would help Scooby, and I continue my quest to find a supplier. Scooby desperately needs a regular supplier of donated dog food. I have written to several companies who donate food to shelters in the USA, but no luck for Spain as yet.  If you have any ideas, please leave a comment to let me know.

Thank you for considering this worthy cause. Will keep you updated regarding status of Scooby.

Hasta Luego!

7/8/11: Crisis Averted - Bless Gorges on Food and Ends Up in Emergency Hospital

We Have a Scare! Bless Gets into Mischief

When Bless had her initial check-up with our family Vet, a couple of months ago, the Vet mentioned that she had to gain 4-5 pounds before she can have her teeth cleaned.  Otherwise, she has a good bill of health, for which we are grateful.  We think that Bless heard this, and decided to take it upon herself to gain that 4-5 pounds all at one time...
Bless Took it Upon Herself to Gain 4-5 lbs all at Once
Oh no!

My sister-in-law, Debby, was visiting from Florida, just after the 4th of July weekend.  When I returned home from work, I fed the dogs, and then Debby and I were talking as we got ready to go out to dinner.  I called Bless a few times, and finally, she came to us after about 5 minutes.  When she jumped on the bed for some loving, I noticed that her stomach looked bloated, and she was crying. She never cries. Even though she's been through hell and back, that girl has never cried. I knew something was wrong.  I feared overeating and twisted stomach.

When we went into the kitchen, we noticed that the lid was removed from the dog food storage bin, and I knew Bless had gorged herself on the kibble.  I called the emergency Vet hotline and they said to bring her in. By the time we got her there, she was trying to throw up, but couldn't. I knew we had done the right thing bringing her in, because she was becoming more and more distressed.  They did the X-ray, and sure enough, her stomach was 5x it's normal size --- all kibble.
X-ray of Bless' Stomach - 5 x its normal size
Oh my! :-(
The Doctor said we had three choices: stomach pump/induce vomiting - which he advised against because it's so invasive, tube down throat to try to pull food out of stomach - also not advised because of danger to the animal, and last option was to let nature take its course with some help - IV's, fluids, walking, and some medications to let the body pass the food through on its own.  We opted for the latter, and we had to leave our girl there overnight for treatment and monitoring.

The pet hospital was excellent.  During her treatment, they called me and I called them a few times to make sure she was doing all right.  They kept her for 24 hours to make sure that everything was going well and that she'd be fine to go home.  I picked her up after work the next day, and she was right back to her self.  Had some medication to give her, and she had to be on a chicken, broth, rice diet for a few days. (All of the dogs enjoyed that!)  She recovered just fine and is as happy as can be in her home.

Through all of this, I had the feeling that everything was going to be OK.  We just have to watch our girl even closer to make sure that she is staying out of mischief. Bless didn't have enough food to eat for about 4 years, so you can imagine how she must feel.  She's hungry all the time, and we will do our best to make sure that her appetite is satisfied, and that she eats healthfully and does not overeat.  We learned a valuable lesson that day about watching over her even more carefully.

I cannot tell you how much love I have for this wonderful Galga, Bless,  and am so dedicated to her well-being.  She truly is an angel, a gift, and we love her so much!

Hasta Luego!

7/24/11: My Travel Companion, Hazel, Returns Home to Monterey

Hazel Returns to Her Home at LouLou's in Monterey
She's proudly displayed next to her beau, on the top shelf,
between the Caswell's Coffee tin and Premium Saltine box
On Sunday, 7/24, with heavy hearts, we returned Hazel to her home at LouLou's Griddle In the Middle, at the Monterey, CA, Wharf.  The staff cheered upon her arrival, and she was placed back in her spot by her beau, the Chef, and next to the antique Saltine box on the top shelf in the restaurant.  It was a perfect day at the Coast, sunny and warm.  The Manager complimented me on my blog (this blog), served us a delicious lunch, and even gave us a complimentary round of drinks, on Hazel.
Lunch at LouLou's
At Our Table: Hazel's Collectible Mates,
the Outhouse (Salt Shaker) and Seagull (Pepper Shaker) :-)

I Miss Hazel...
I know it's silly, but I miss her! I've had Hazel for the past four months, and she traveled all the way to Spain with me to volunteer and bring back my Galgo, Bless. Of course, I know that she's an inanimate object, but when she was with me, I still had that sense that I wasn't alone on my travels, and that I had a companion (of sorts).

Hoping to take Hazel along on another adventure in the future.  Thank you for loaning her to me, LouLou's!

More to come about Bless and her new life in California.

Hasta Luego!

Please support Scooby! We need a source of regular food for the dogs in Spain, so if you know of a company that would help, please let me know. Muchas Gracias!

Journey to Spain, 4/27-5/3/11 - Adventures with My Good Luck Charm & Travel Partner, Hazel

This Entry is all about Hazel's Adventures
Who is Hazel?
Here is the link to my original posting about Hazel, my good luck charm and travel partner, a collectible Salt & Pepper shaker from a very cool little cafe called LouLou's Griddle in the Middle, Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey, CA.

The following is a photo montage of the various adventures that Hazel shared with me during my recent trip to Spain, where we volunteered at Scooby Medina del Campo, and picked up my adopted Galgo (Spanish Greyhound), Bless.  Enjoy! :-)

Dear LouLou's
Thank you for loaning me Hazel!  I'll soon return her to her rightful place on the shelf in your lovely restaurant.  However, we have a dilemma...  One of my friends would like to take her to Central America for some volunteer work, in August.  I would like to take her on my next trip, which is a Mediterranean cruise (Spain, France, Italy, Croatia), which is also in August. Which do you think she would prefer? Volunteer work or rest and relaxation?  Perhaps you could put this to a vote with your staff and customers? ;-)

You can read more about our journey home to California in this blog. Met a travel mate, who sat next to me on the plane. He brought a sock monkey that was his good luck charm on his trip from England to California. You see, it's becoming quite chic to take some sort of fun object on your travels to share in the adventure, take photos of, and to join in the fun! ;-)

5/2/11, Leaving Scooby - Bless and Me - Our Journey Home to California

Bless' Last Day at Scooby
Traveling to Her Forever Home in California

5/2/11:  Bless' Journey Home to CA

When the alarm rang, Diane and I crawled out of our bunks and got ready for the trip. Gathered up my belongings. Grabbed Bless' water bowls out of the freezer for the trip. Put her carrier into the back of the van. Bless sat in the back seat, and we headed out. Diane is an angel for getting up so early to take us to the Madrid Airport; especially since she and Lydia have to do the same thing the next day, and they are bringing back three dogs for adoption in the US.

Hasta Luego, Beautiful Madrid!
Will see you again soon.
Rush hour traffic wasn't too bad, getting in that early. We found our way to the Delta departure terminal. I grabbed a cart, loaded it with the crate and bags, took Bless on her leash, gave Diane a farewell and 'thank you' hug, and then we went into the terminal and found the Delta counter.  

Bless was my conversation piece. Almost every traveler, from every nationality in that airport, gave her a look and a smile. She is so beautiful and has such a unique look about her, she attracted a lot of attention.  Many stopped to ask me if I traveled with her often, because she was so calm.  Then I had a chance to tell them her story. They were intrigued, and they smiled when they heard about it. 

Thank you, Delta Airlines and Staff!
You were so good to Bless and to me.

The Delta staff were absolutely fantastic to us. I can't thank them enough!  The kind young lady who checked us in told me that I had 15 minutes to take Bless outside for a walk so that she could relieve herself. Then when I returned, she escorted me to the Security area, and they so kindly and gently put Bless in her carrier, locked it up with wire ties and bungee cords, and let me kiss her before they took her to the gate.  

Had a chance to grab some coffee, and then it was time to board.  Immediately when I boarded, I asked the Attendant if he could check to make sure that my dog was on board. (The Captain can always confirm this, as he/she has a manifesto for all cargo.) He came by twice to let me know that not only was she on board, but the Captain said she was doing just fine. Lucky me and Bless! And even luckier, I got an aisle seat on the left side, and no one sat in the seat next to me. So I could lay down and relax in two seats all the way from Madrid to NY.  Watched a couple of movies. Ate a nice breakfast and lunch, and began to reflect on my adventure.

It was bittersweet to leave Spain. I know that this experience has changed my life, and that I will return to Scooby again soon.

Welcome to America, Bless!
New York City, NY
We arrived early at JFK in New York. Was thankful for the extra time between connections.  Went through Immigration and then waited for my bags, and for Bless to arrive in her carrier so that I could take her through Customs. There was a very nice Steward who had greeted me and offered to take my bags. I explained about waiting for Bless, and he said that they had pets come through the airport all the time. He knew exactly what to do.  We retrieved my bags and put them on his cart, and then went over to the elevator, where Bless came down in her carrier. She did great on that long flight from Madrid. The Steward loaded her up, and off we went. It was well worth having him assist, and giving him a generous tip. We had the VIP treatment. Went to the front of the line and breezed through Customs with our Passports.  Then on to the gate area, where we had to leave the carrier for cargo shipment.  He took us into a special area, not far from where we had arrived, and the TSA Officer who inspected her carrier was great to us.  She let me take Bless out of the carrier and walk her to the restroom, where we refilled her water dishes.  She gave Bless hugs and treated us so well.  Then we put her back into the carrier and locked it up for the next leg of the journey.  Four more hours to San Francisco. 
My Travel Seat Mate's Good Luck Sock Monkey

Hazel, my good luck charm/travel companion

When I boarded the plane, asked the Attendant to confirm that Bless was on board.  He came by before take off to let me know that the Captain said she was on board and doing just fine.  Once again, I was stuck in the middle seat on the left side of the plane. Blah!  There was a nice fellow from Manchester, England, sitting next to me on the right. We struck up a conversation. He was going to visit friends and manage the sound systems for some concerts in smaller clubs in San Francisco.  I told him about my journey to Spain and that Bless was on board.  I also shared about Hazel, my good luck charm. Serendipitously, he also had a travel good luck charm, which was his niece's sock monkey. It was in his backpack, as was my Hazel.  We shared stories and laughed well about it.

My, but I was *so* ready to be off of that plane near the last couple of hours. So uncomfortable!  I could only imagine how Bless must feel in her carrier.

San Francisco
Welcome to the Hotel California, Bless! We live 45 minutes from SFO in San Jose.

Finally, we arrived in San Francisco. I called my husband, Ted (Darrell), to see if he was on the way. Made my way to the luggage claim area. Picked up my bags, and then waited for Bless.  The cargo door opened, and magically, she appeared. She looked great and traveled like the trooper that she is.  After a few minutes, Ted arrived and guided us out to the car.  We loaded up the carrier and Bless slept in the back seat on a blanket.  She was so calm and peaceful, and Ted fell in love with her immediately.  Once we arrived home, it was just early evening, but I was *so* tired. Went to sleep for a few hours. Awoke briefly and then went right back to sleep for the night.  I let Bless sleep in our office the first night so that she could get used to her new home and to give her a chance to adjust to all of the change. So thankful that everything went so smoothly, as #1 priority was to get Bless home safely.

All is well with the world. God is in Heaven. He gave us a safe and uneventful journey home, and Bless is with me in her new home in San Jose, CA. Life is great!

More to come. Thank you for reading my blog!

Please support Scooby! Muchas Gracias.

Hasta Luego!

5/1/11, Day 4 - Last Day at Scooby - 3rd Full Day of Work

Who goes there?
Photo by Saskia Bijkersma 
Awoke early to the morning serenade of synchronized dog howling. This would be my last morning to hear the beautiful song of the Galgos. I think Scooby may want to cut a record of "the wave" and use it as a fund raiser. ;-)  It was misty. The crickets were singing. Very peaceful. It turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day of about 70 degrees.  Perfect last day! Got ready for the day, and went over to the Quarantine area to clean the pens, one last time.

It's official! I have fallen in love with these dogs.  I have, what is known as "Scooby Fever".  They have come to know me, and I them.  They seemed to be waiting for their clean-up and visit.  I savored every moment with them on this last day, knowing that I would not see any of them again, except my Bless.  Such dear hearts, just waiting to be acknowledged and loved. I wish them all great lives and loving homes.

Two of the Quarantine Dogs - All Bark and All Love

My cleaning process is getting more efficient. I'm faster at it now: scoop, hose, fill water buckets, give love, repeat....   Only took about 2 hours to finish all 12 pens today.  That left more time for a second sweep of cleaning the patios, and more time for loving the dogs.

Ate some lunch and then went back to the dorm to pack and get ready to take my darling Bless home to California.  Packed all of my clothes and laid everything out for an early morning departure.  Put together the dog carrier and the bedding. Filled out and pasted on all of the ID tags, and put her filled water cups in the freezer.

Visited the Quarantine dogs again to take photos (many with Hazel - she will have her own blog entry ;-) ), and then to the paddocks.  Helped watch over the dinner feeding to make sure everyone played fair.  It was heart wrenching to say, "Goodbye" to these beautiful animals.

Diane called me back to the dorm so that I could meet up with her to get Bless.  My Bless was taken out of the kennel, so that the other dogs could eat. She had to skip dinner because of her next day of travel.  Diane was working with Fermin and the Vet, to make sure that her Passport (yes, she has her own passport), and all of her paperwork were in order. They also cut her nails and checked her over to make sure she was ready for her long journey to her new home.
Bless' Passport from Spain
Just like a "people" ;-)
Bless' Passport has her Breed, Blood Work, Vaccination Information for Entry into the USA 
No Quarantine Period Necessary with the Proper Credentials
Went back to help with making dog food with my US and UK fellow volunteers. We had a lot of fun chatting and getting to know each other.  They had finished with Bless, and brought her to me so that she could relax with us while we made the food.  She was so serene and relaxed. I knew this was going to be even better than I had imagined; after all, her name is "Bless". Right?

Bless and Me - Making Dog Food for the Others
Lucinda was hugging Bless and told me that she was a "true" Galgo. I asked what that meant. She said that (as compared to an Irish greyhound) they have almond shaped eyes, floppy ears, a long tail that reaches their spine when curled up on their body, a wider chest, and bigger paws.  My Galga even has a Roman nose, just like me!  I mentioned to Lucinda that since there are so many forgotten, neglected, abused and abandoned animals in this world, my Bless (and my other dogs and cat) are needles in the haystack.  They only have a very small chance at a good life. Isn't that sad?

Lydia took Bless for a short walk, and then I continued to get ready for my trip home. When she brought her back, we all took our showers and got ready for dinner. I took Bless out one more time to see if she wanted to relieve herself before we left.  I looked out over the Scooby grounds, and then out to the surrounding fields. Again the crickets were singing.  Amazingly, there was a beautiful rainbow in the distance.  This Galga was going to her new home, and all was well with the world.

We left Bless in her carrier when we went to town for our favorite pizza place.  It was so cute because the proprietor had gotten to know all of us, and he always turned on either a Phil Collins or Bruce Springsteen concert DVD to entertain us while we ate (circa 1990's). Near the end of our dinner, our friends from the UK joined at the table next to us.  We all hugged, exchanged contact information, and said our goodbye's.  I have since connected on Facebook with Diane and Lydia, my US mates, and many of the others from the UK and the Netherlands. They have all posted their wonderful photos, some of which, I have added to this blog. Thanks to all of you for your camaraderie, support, the work you have done and still do for Scooby!

Got ready for a few hours of sleep. Alarm was set for 3:30 a.m.  Bless slept like an angel on the bedding on the floor, all cuddled up in a blanket, near my bed. She sighed in contentment a few times.  We both went to sleep with smiles. :-)

More to come. Thank you for reading my blog!
