Visit to Spain, Spring 2012: Day Six - Scooby Medina del Campo

Scooby Dogs - Galgos & Other Breeds - All Lovelies!
Today is a special day. It is the day that Lucinda, Trevor, Ruth and Alice from the UK arrived in the morning. We headed out of the hotel, recognized Trevor, and greeted our UK Team. Then Lucinda joined us. We had our introductions and then discussed meeting at Scooby to begin work.  We agreed that we'd take care of cleaning the quarantine pens, and they would begin working on the paddocks, and Trevor on the building of the kennels.

Darrell worked on cleaning up the Tool room and fixing various tools.

Ana, one of the most wonderful of all Scooby Volunteers, took care of getting us the jumbo dog carrier that we needed for bringing back Rayo.  With that and our carrier for Benji, we are ready to bring both dogs back to the USA.

Returned to the warehouse to find one lovely Spanish volunteer making dog food, aka dog food lasagna. Joined her to help. Soon, there were several of us making dog food for the galgos and other dogs.  When Scooby is low on dog food, we make dog food lasagna. Recipe: one layer of bread, one layer of cat food, repeat.  As I've mentioned in almost every one of my blogs, Scooby needs a regular supply of dog food for 300 dogs/per day. Know anyone who can help? Please let me know. 
Dog Lasagna. Yummy!
Darrell and I found this wonderful little gourmet cafe across the street from the hotel with local fare.  They serve one appetizer from a choice of a dozen, then one main course, and one dessert each, plus wine for 11E per person.  The food was some of the best we had in Spain, especially the sopa (soup)!

We met up with our UK mates and had an evening drink and fun discussion in the nearby bars.  Everyone was tired, so we turned in early.

Hasta Luego! Thank you for reading my blog! More to follow. Bless sends her blessings.
Our gorgeous Galga, Bless!
Please support Scooby!
Know an organization that will donate dog food?  Please let me know.
