........for anyone who was hoping to adopt our big fellow Goliath from his fosterers, Nicky and Mick Hart......tough! After just 24 hours they’re so in love with him that he’s going nowhere! He’s found his family and the trophy for fastest failed foster goes to the Hart family. Congratulations! We’re totally thrilled that you’ve now adopted 4 Paradise dogs πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ x

.......all our worries and anxieties of the last few weeks all fade away when we see photos like these. Paradise Galgos where they’re meant to be, in a home.
You saw big Goliath, the first Happy Van drop off to Mick Hart in Doncaster then it was up the A1 and Angel was delivered to Eddie Kervin, then Tawny arrived at Hamilton to stay with Alison Miller, he’ll hopefully be meeting his new adopter, Frazer next week. Next off the van and into the arms of his adopters was Maccy. So happy that this boy has a permanent home with Dot and Iain Lumsden. Last but not least was dainty little Tabitha (Tabby) who Laura Duncan is fostering. The little sweetheart is up in Elgin in the snow.
It’s been so lovely to see these photos of them all in happy places. As ever, the usual massive thank you to Pam McLeod, her Admins Bronwyn O'Riordan and Sarah Laurence, our wonderful PINS adopters and fosterers and last but not least Roberto for his fantastic care of our dogs en route. Who needs F1 when you can watch a live location of a yellow Van racing North. #WishAllSundaysWereLikeThis

Sadly the sun didn’t shine for their departure, but in a break in the clouds and after weeks of preparation, at last the Brindle Brigade of Goliath, Angel, Tabby, Tawny and Maccy, are on their way! Numerous vet visits, paperwork, messaging with our amazing PINS Pals, transport discussion, everything to ensure safe passage to the UK.
These wonderful dogs, part of our Paradise Family have such an amazing future with their new families and their own couch. We were all a bit teary but sad ones mixed with happy ones. Massive thanks to Pam McLeod, Bronwyn O'Riordan and Sarah Laurence for our constant chats to coordinate the journey. Many thanks also to David Navarro Iniesta for sending his Van to take our dogs just over the mountain to the Traces Kennels and in anticipation of a smooth onward journey, thank you to Roberto who this evening will board them on to the Happy Van and this precious cargo will head North.
A small footnote (Well very large footnote really 😳) Goliath had to have a special area, tethered at the front of the van. He really is a very big boy 😍

The marvellous thing about our partnership with PINS is that we at Paradise are fully reimbursed all the Vet fees for sterilisation, Microchips, Passports and Rabies Vaccs. Also a full blood test for Mediterranean diseases and if that isn’t enough, if an abnormality shows up, they pay for the treatment. We have five Galgos on this current transport, nearly thirty last year and more to come. All these transport slots are paid for by PINS. They are amazing, but of course the money has to come from somewhere.
The Kilt Walk is their big fundraiser as every pound raised in sponsorship, 50% more is given by a Charitable trust. If you love to see our dogs happy in their new homes and you’d like to help PINS with their funds please click on the post below xπŸ“£ONLY 2 WEEKS TO GOπŸ“£

You’ll soon see lots of photos of the dogs arriving this weekend, a wonderful sight to see, but did you know that our transport costs at the end of the month are expected to be more than Β£4000???

You can help donate towards these costs by β€˜Wearing some tartan and Kiltwalking for PINS’ or by sponsoring our team.

It’s been a pretty crazy few weeks for Colleen Jay and I. We haven’t known if we’re coming or going and in our mad rush to get things done to deadlines, we two old birds are quite likely to have forgotten things. What we’d hate to have forgotten is to thank you for a donation, so please message me if you don’t see your name in the thank yous. x ... See MoreSee Less

It’s so great that we can rely on you to help us. Welcome to this month’s new members and to the couple who’ve left us, we’re sorry to see you go but have appreciated all you’ve done for us. We haven’t yet reached the cost of a pallet of food, but we’re getting there. We now use two a month and it would be so great if a few more of you were able to pledge the cost of cuppa each month or an amount of your choice, to help pay for the dogs food. If you’d like to help us, please click on the link. Thank you everyone, what would we do without you all xxx

This last week has been totally manic and on Friday we had the onerous task of measuring and weighing our Galgos in preparation for getting them to their new homes in the UK. We have over twenty heading out in the coming weeks, so armed with chip reader, tape measure and bathroom scales, Colleen, my Alan and I, headed down into the Galgo pens to tackle the job.
Well! Our Alan, known to Colleen as Smiley Man, during the course of the afternoon lifted and weighed well over 500kgs of Galgos! There was only one that we wouldn’t let him lift and you’ll all guess that would be Goliath!
Alan also picked up a nice little blonde during the course of the afternoon. What a sweetheart she is. She clung to him like a limpet. Check her out on the second video below where Colleen’s stroking her. Like many of our Galgos, she needs a home and she would make a perfect pet. Her name is Bridie πŸ₯°

More wonderful Scottish scenery for us to enjoy. What a wonderful place for our dogs. Thanks as usual to Pam McLeod and PINS and special thanks to Alegna Gallacher for giving a home to Jeta x

At last the transports are now all registered and we’re getting some movement of our dogs to UK, so in readiness, we’ve had a real shuffle round. The three new little Galgo puppies, Harry, Ron and Hermione are now nicely settled in. We decided that Candy was getting fed up with her little white Sweeties, so they left Colleen’s spare bedroom for the Puppy House. Candy now shares the garden with Delgado, his blind girlfriend and timorous Timmy. Our new little Podenco, named Sunday is such a cutie. She stands on tippy toes to try to see the three little Potterheads in the pen next door. Very shy at the moment but gingerly creeps forward for a stroke. Remember handsome Paddy with the broken leg? Well he’ll be popping up in a post soon. Enjoy seeing Colleen’s favourite hiding place ☺️
