Lucas' Journey Home- 1 Year Ago

Recommended Posts

Lehto's birthday post made me think of this!

 

One year ago today Lucas started his journey to his new life. After spending 10 months at the FBM shelter in Spain he was loaded up into a van with a number of other Galgos and began his journey to Holland. He was met there by Donna whom we had asked to look after him until we arrived in Holland for a holiday a few days later. Donna brought Lucas to a kennel- well really heaven on earth for any dog! Would you not love this?

We visited him there the day after we arrived in Holland to get to know him and then the day before we returned home we went to pick him up and brought him to our hotel. He was a bit confused to say the least!

After a long flight we arrived at the airport where Lucas did the biggest poop to ever come out of a dog :lol At least he held it up!

 

At home he got to know his new brothers and sister and well, he loves them, especially Ambi.

He is a real little character. Happy almost Gotcha Day Lucas!

After meeting Lucas, I know that sooner or later I am going to add a galgo to my pack. He certainly won me over.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

Thanks all and a special thanks to Robin for posting the pictures of Lucas while he was with you in Spain! You are right, he is fearless! He is so playful, we hope he settles down a bit soon. He keeps each and every day interesting.
