🐾BREAKFAST MEETING WITH THE BOSS AND QUEENIE.🐾We had a Vet visit for our girl so it would have been remiss not to have popped next door for a cafe con leche or two and the reason I wanted to share this with you was because Queenie who has never been anyone’s pet, sat quietly by the table as good as gold. She didn’t react to any unexpected noise, any passing dogs, people or traffic. She just quietly watched everything that was going on around her. She’s been with us some time, came from the usual source and bears the scars of what must have gone on before. She’s about 6 or 7 and is just the most gentle perfect girl. If you enjoy cafe culture, she’s definitely the girl for you 😍 ... See MoreSee Less

🐾SOMEONE UP THERE IS WATCHING US DOWN HERE 🤔🐾It keeps happening! We home a dog and another turns up at the gate!! This week, Tally and Isla have left us and guess who was knocking on the door last night? 😡 The Gypsyman as Colleen calls him, with two Galgos. One black and one white. Both with a beautiful nature but the poor black boy had a very swollen knee. It’s so common that a dog is cast aside when there’s either the possibility of Vet bills in the offing or puppies on their way. The black boy is very undernourished so Colleen will now start her magic and get him well and strong and we’ll make sure that you can all follow his journey x ... See MoreSee Less

🐾WE HAD A WINDFALL TODAY!🐾Do you remember when our lovely Alan flew to his new home in Sweden? Well the airline didn’t bring his crate over which created big problems solved by my Blossom lending Alan her crate. Alan’s adopters rightly complained to the airline and today they received €200 compensation and guess who they’ve given it to?!Thank you so much Johan Göthlin and Henny Källdén for thinking of us and for giving such a great life to our boy 😍 x ...

🐾THERE ARE THREE THINGS I’VE NOTICED!🐾1. Lovely Tally hasn’t stopped wagging her tail since she arrived in Scotland2. I didn’t ever notice her ears fully pricked up before, but look at them now!3. She’s only ever lived on the end of a chain and in the kennels, so how did she learn how to sniff, track and find a rabbit hole. She’s a really special girl is our Tally and I think there’s a fabulous relationship growing between her and Julie Macdonald ❤️🐾❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

🧶 Yvonne Stotesbury’s GETTING ITCHY FINGERS! 🧶 All her orders for knitted dogs are complete and she can’t wait to get cracking on knitting some more. She’s got an expanding repertoire of breeds including the pastel pink and blue pups especially for babies. What a great Christmas present. For €12 one could belong to you and 10 of those euros would belong to us. Yvonne has donated so much money to us since she started with her bottle lamps and other crafts so anything you buy from her helps Paradise. Also, when we hold our Christmas Auction Bonanza there’ll be two opportunities to win a dog so don’t forget to check in. Yvonne’s breeds that you can chose from are the following.

🐾IT’S THE END OF DAY 1. FOR OUR TWO POD GIRLS!🐾Have you ever wondered how our dogs end up at Paradise? Well, these two girls’ lives could have taken a very different turn.“Tally’s Tale”.One of our great supporters, Chad from the bar on the Albatera residential caravan park had spotted her chained, neglected and underfed. It was thanks to him and his son’s actions that they managed to get Tally loose and to the safety of Paradise. She was quite feral and wanted nothing to do with humans but gradually as Colleen built her up to the strong girl she now is, she suddenly realised that people aren’t so bad and she’s now become a real love bunny, craving attention and hugs. She’ll get plenty of them with Julie Macdonald, along with wonderful treks on the hills of Scotland.“Isla (was Lucy)’s Tale”.Lucy was kept in captivity in a Gypsy camp near Fortuna. She was observed from a distance for quite some time by the daughter of one of our supporters and when the time was right, she and her boyfriend made their move. She arrived at our shop late at night and Colleen quickly took her to Paradise and safety. She was a bundle of bones. She was soon coaxed to eat but something we thought would hinder her was that she had a very deformed front foot and ran around, not putting it to the floor. She was extremely timid but enjoyed being with other dogs. She has been seen by an orthopaedic specialist who said that an operation wouldn’t be possible as her foot is very unusual. She is missing one of the long bones that the bones of a toe would be attached to so they’re there but are all higgled piggledy. (X Ray photo’s below for your perusal) She feels no pain and with the help of Mary Thomas will grow in confidence. So this weekend has been the best for us. Never think that when a dog leaves us it’s forgotten. We love to know how they’re all doing. All these beauties stay in our hearts forever ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

🐾HOME AT LAST!🐾I’ve spent the last few days following the journey of two Paradise Podencos going to live in the UK. Jeanette Scott and Jamie have just signed off after the safe delivery of all their charges. The first of ours to be delivered was Lucy, our little girl with a deformed foot, meeting Mary Thomas for the first time and secondly, Tally our big Pod who’s early years were on the end of a chain. Great times ahead for her with Julie Macdonald. What a great opportunity PINs have given them and as ever, we’re so grateful. ... See MoreSee Less

🐾WHAT A GREAT LITTLE MUMMY LADY IS!🐾Her little puppies haven’t even opened their eyes yet, but she obviously thinks that there’s a need for them to have some cuddly toys to play with 🥰 She’s been bringing them into the basket, one by one and was most put out when Colleen changed the bedding this morning and the toys weren’t there! But not to worry. She put them all back again. What a sweetheart. ❤️Between her constant washing and caring for her babies, Lady did allow Colleen to have a quick peep to establish that we’ve got 5 girls and 2 boys. ... See MoreSee Less

🐾 PART 2 OF A STORY WHERE WE FEEL THAT IN THE HANDS OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF SPAIN, THERE IS HOPE FOR ANIMALS.............CHANGE IS COMING! 🐾 Following on from the protest we attended last week with the young people in Orihuela and then Colleen and Satu’s epic journey to Córdoba on Thursday. Both events ended in a place of hope. The “Refugio De Animales El Hogar De Antón” is where two young men have made it their mission to prevent animals in the area of Cordoba ending up in the killing station. They rescued our little mummy to be, “Lady” and her little black friend “Tramp” (Some of us are old enough to remember the film 😬) and have many more in the premises they use. Antonio Javier Gomez Monterroso has a little Cafe Bar but of course with current Covid conditions, times are tough. They so need as much help as they can get to carry on their work. There are many ways that we can help them and we’re currently trying to formulate a plan. We hope to gather together as many of the things they need and we’d like to involve some of our partners. For example. If our Puppy House is empty and they have puppies, we’d love it if transporters who regularly travel the motorway from them to us could maybe help get them to us, maybe as part of a relay. We’re hopeful that we can gather enough helpful contributions to fill a van so that we can get maybe beds, bedding, food etc to them. This will be a separate project to everything we do for Paradise, we’ll be the mouthpiece / promoter of the venture. Donations etc intended for Paradise will stay at Paradise but if you our followers and our partners can help in any way then that will be great. Until we’ve worked a bit more on our ideas, could you please visit their page and click the LIKE. These inspirational young men are the future.www.facebook.com/ELHOGARDEANTON/🐾 PARTE 2 DE UNA HISTORIA DONDE SENTIMOS QUE EN LAS MANOS DE LOS JÓVENES DE ESPAÑA, HAY ESPERANZA POR LOS ANIMALES ............. ¡VIENE EL CAMBIO! 🐾 A raíz de la protesta asistimos la semana pasada con los jóvenes en Orihuela y luego el épico viaje de Colleen y Satu el jueves. Ambos eventos terminaron en un lugar de esperanza. El “Refugio De Animales El Hogar De Antón” es donde dos jóvenes se han propuesto evitar que los animales de la zona de Córdoba acaben en el puesto de matanza. Rescataron a nuestra pequeña momia para ser, “Lady” y su amiguita negra “Tramp” (algunos de nosotros tenemos la edad suficiente para recordar la película 😬) y tienen muchos más en el local que usan. Antonio Javier Gómez Monterroso tiene un pequeño Café Bar pero, por supuesto, con las condiciones actuales de Covid, los tiempos son difíciles. Necesitan tanta ayuda como puedan para llevar a cabo su trabajo. Hay muchas formas en que podemos ayudarlos y actualmente estamos tratando de formular un plan. Esperamos reunir la mayor cantidad de cosas que necesitan y nos gustaría involucrar a algunos de nuestros socios. Por ejemplo. Si nuestra casa de cachorros está vacía y tienen cachorros, nos encantaría que los transportistas que viajan regularmente por la autopista desde ellos hasta nosotros pudieran ayudarnos a llevarlos, tal vez como parte de un relevo. Tenemos la esperanza de poder reunir suficientes contribuciones útiles para llenar una camioneta para que podamos conseguirles tal vez camas, ropa de cama, comida, etc. Este será un proyecto aparte de todo lo que hacemos para Paradise, seremos los portavoces / promotores de la empresa. Las donaciones, etc. destinadas a Paradise permanecerán en Paradise, pero si ustedes, nuestros seguidores y socios, pueden ayudar de alguna manera, será genial. Hasta que hayamos trabajado un poco más en nuestras ideas, ¿podría visitar su página y hacer clic en Me gusta? Estos jóvenes inspiradores son el futuro. ... See MoreSee Less

✈️UP WITH THE SPARROWS TODAY COLLECTING A LITTLE JETSETTER✈️Today was the day that Linda Mandelholm was at last going to meet her little Zolo. One of the happiest little dogs that we’ve seen in the Puppy House for a long time, little Zolo captured Linda’s heart back in the summer and since then we’ve worked towards this exciting day.Linda arrived from Sweden yesterday and I introduced her to Zolo on the 5th floor of Alicante Airport Carpark. They were through departures in the blink of an eye and the next photo I received was of Zolo in his new woolen coat to help him with the wet 10 degrees ☔️🥶 that greeted him. Thank you so much Linda for giving this little fellow the home he deserves, we so look forward to seeing updates of his new life and thank you also for your generous donation too. Lots of love to you and your family from all of us at Paradise.Zolo is the second dog that we’ve recently sent to Sweden and it’s so easy. Small dogs can travel in the cabin and larger dogs cost around €50 to travel in the hold. All they need is a flight buddy/owner, the usual Rabies/chip/passport and a letter from us. We can help our many friends in Sweden if ever they spot a little dog they’d like . x ... See MoreSee Less
