|Smiling Galgo - Welcome back to Scooby, Margie and Darrell!|
Drove over to Scooby, grabbed our rubber work boots and working coats and headed to clean the 12 quarantine pens, where they generally keep dogs that are prepped for adoption inside and outside of Spain. For those who would visit Scooby, a tip: there are all sorts of extra work clothes that other volunteers have left in the men's and ladies' changing rooms/bathrooms, including work boots, coats, hats, gloves, slacks, shirts, sweaters, shorts and other items. So don't worry about bringing lots of extra stuff when you visit.
Darrell and I cleaned the twelve pens in about an hour, then spent time petting the dogs, which is the best thing about being here.

We toured the Scooby grounds and checked out the new kennels that are being built. They are looking great and should be ready for guests soon. Lots of hard work from staff and volunteers to build these kennels -- truly labors of love.

Right next to the castle, up on the hill, we noticed that there was a beautiful cemetery. It's interesting to see how cultures honor those who have passed on, and we were curious. We found that their tombs are above the ground, and couples are buried side by side. All have lovely flowers.
Found a tapas place for a light dinner. Returned to the hotel. Took another nap (yep, still jet lagged and the hard work and fresh air also did us in). Got up and watched a bit of television and caught up on the blog (yesterday's).

Our UK friends arrive tomorrow. More adventures and photos coming soon. I may not post again for a couple of days because, quite frankly, we are having such a great time immersing ourselves in the Scooby World, we don't even track the time of day too much! So please watch for the updates that will be forthcoming in the next few days and pardon the pause.
We are having a wonderful time. Wish you were here! :-)
