Spanish Street Dogs; the other Waifs and Strays.

Spanish Street Dogs; the other Waifs and Strays is about the many and varied dogs that we find around our village. Many are abandonados, some are just plain lost, all are real characters, mostly streetwise but occasionally foolhardy. These are some of the stories...

Missing Trogs...
01 March 2011 @ 23:02


All but one of the troglodyte cave dwellers have disappeared; they have been missing now for 5 days. No-one seems to know their whereabouts. I'd like to think they have been picked up by someone that cares, but I have this nagging doubt that perhaps the G.C. have picked them up. If this is the case I doubt very much they will live to tell the tale. We have searched our village and surrounding villages but there is just no sign of them.

In the meantime the one who is left is doing her damndest to avoid all human contact, except with me. I am still feeding her daily and trying to look out for her, but she will not take being stroked or touched. My OH and I are going to make a concerted effort tomorrow to try to get a lead on her and bring her back to the house. Our small place is already home to 5 so one more isn't going to make that much difference. Given the choice of being captured by the GC or us isnt much of a choice but at least with us she will have some kind of a future. She is very streetwise as she would be having been a street dog since the day she was born, and trying to catch her wont be easy but we'll have to try.

We will have to get her to a vet soon afterward because all of ours are up-to date with jabs but she has never had any veterinarian treatment. She appears to be in good health and free of skin parasites but definitely needs worming. Also with  the number of roaming un-neutered males roaming the village she will need to be spayed otherwise the whole cycle starts again.

I just wish their was a rescue centre close to home that I could trust.

Oh fb, how sad that they've suddenly disappeared like that especially if they've been picked up by the G.C. I hope you manage to get hold of the one left. You're wonderful to these animals.
