After losing our girl Cara a few months ago, we kinda decided to keep it at our three. It would allow us to have 3 galgo fosters instead of 2 and since some stay a long time, it just seemed to be the sensible thing to do. I mean, our house is always full of galgos. And then, in December, Florida made the long trip from Spain to be fostered with us. 8 Years old, used for breeding for a long time, very scared but sweet. I figured it would take a few months before she would get adopted, she has a lot to deal with and get used to. And then I found these little pebbles in her mammary glands, very small, but they were there. I think it wasn't a week after her arrival that I took her to the vet. It didn't look good. Two heavy operations, the fist one opened her up from her chest to between her legs. She was so scared, but so brave. Tests showed that some were cancerous, others pre cancerous. But her lungs are clear. My vet practice has several vets, but the owner made clear she was the one to handle this girl. In her words, this girl amazes me, even when she is in pain, she is the gentlest and so brave. Her second operation needed to be done soon after and I hated it, hated for her to go through it again. And I realized I did not want to see her go to a new home, I wanted to see her grow and get better. And so, for the first time in 18 years, I foster failed with a galgo. She is scared of the camera, but these I got today. Florida joins Lehto, Sami and Brisa and is home.
