I left Barcelona with my three dogs to a little mountain village over 500km away in La Rioja, the North of Spain, to have some quality time together. To be wild. To lose ourselves on those mountains. That was the end of March this year (2018). Continue reading “Opis and Mori – Mission Rescue”

I put what I thought we were going to need me and the dogs (Ula, Joy and Ging) for a week in my backpack and left Barcelona to a little mountain village in the north of Spain called Anguiano. I planned to be around a week there as I had never been there by myself and, to be honest, no one thought I could survive any longer either. That was at the end of March, so we have been over a month and a half! Crazy hey!

Ona arrived to Marta’s life, her new mum, the afternoon of the 18th of December 2015. Ona was a gift to a man who was suffering depression due to a delicate health condition, his family thought Ona would bring joy and help for him. The first owner’s health deteriorated, having heart difficulties, and couldn’t take care of her. Those who took the dog from her mum before recommended and bought it, now, were looking for a new home. Marta, casually, was looking to adopt and saw Ona’s story on Facebook. A big, flopsy earred, cute cocker spaniel, in the arms of a blond girl. Marte called the foster family but they had already found a family for Ona. A few days later they called her again, the new family didn’t want her and they offered Ona to Marta. Ona arrived on Friday and it was love at first sight. The door opened and there was the crazy cutie Ona just jumping all around with such excitement. Now, Marte and Ona are totally inseparable; even going to work each day, in a little shop Marta owns. As Marta said “Ona had to be given away because of her first owners heart, and now she was taking Ona because she filled her heart.“

Ava was born 7 years ago in a village in the south of Spain. She was separated from her mother just after birth with her sister. Still with their eyes closed and with the umbilical cord still attached, they put the two little puppies in a taped box to make sure the sad end and threw them at the side of a road. Someone saw the taped box and thought it was weird, or maybe a lost parcel, but when they opened it had the biggest surprise. Unfortunately the rescuers couldn’t give them a home but found a lady who agreed to having them in her garden. That seemed a good idea but ended with the puppies alone, with adult dog food and no love. Thanks to the rescue center Apa Pupetc Centre and Paqui, Ava had the best foster home, so loved so spoilt.
Seven years ago we saw her on the internet, she was 4 months old. We fell in love and Ava became part of our crazy dog family.
Ava is still a very anxious and unsure dog. She gets really scared with any noise like gusty winds. Despite her having the worst start to life a dog can have, with the family Ava is always looking for cuddles and being close to whatever you are doing. She has a really beautiful and special little spirit.

Ava nació en un pequeño pueblo en el sur de España hace 7 años. Solo nacer, junto con su hermana, fue separada de su madre. Aun tenian el cordón umbilical y los ojos cerrados cuando puesieron a las dos pequeñas en una caja. Embalaron la caja para asegurarse que no saldrían y la tiraron a la cuneta de una carretera. Alguien vio la caja y pensó que era extraño, o quizás un paquete extraviado, la cogió, la abrió y se llevo la más grandes de las sorpresas. La persona que las encontró no se las podía quedar pero se encontró una señora que aceptó tenerlas en su jardín. Parecía una buena idea antes de llevarlas a la perrera siendo tan pequeñas, pero acabó con las pequeñas solas, comiendo pienso para perros adultos y sin ningún cariño. Gracias a Apa Pupetc Centre y Paqui las rescataron y Ava tuvo la mejor de las casas de acogida. Querida y mimada hasta el infinito.
Siete años atrás la vimos en internet, tenia 4 meses. Nos enamoró en un solo instante y así entró en nuestra loca familia perruna.
Ava es aun ansiosa y muy desconfiada. Se asusta de casi todo hasta de los ruidos. Aunque tuvo el peor principio que un perro puede tener, es cariñosa y siempre buscando atención con su familia. Es una pequeña alma muy especial.
