This is a wunderful event that must get a beautiful ending... Carla saved her first dog...
One of our loyal Spanish volunteers has a 4 year old daughter. Her mama is an animal activist and a lovely lady who would, like us, do anything to save a life.
Last week they were walking in a forest with friends and were drinking a coffee in the cafeteria nearby, the children were playing with each other around the tables on the terrace.
All of a sudden our volunteer couldn't see her daughter anymore, big panic of course, everybody looking for her...
Then she saw her daughter in the bushes, sitting on the ground, chatting to a podenco, who was sitting next to her, very relaxed.
When the mama came closer, the podenco ran away.. Little Carla was very upset, because 'her' doggy was very ill, she told her mother. She has to come with us mama, crying and crying. The mama thought, I will let her sit for a while, maybe she will come back to my daughter. She informed Carla that when the dog would come back, she should pet her and then carefully pull a leash around her head. Just keep sitting next to the dog, and mama will come and we will take her to the vet...Just don't let go en hold the leash, ok?
That was how it was done... and the tired podenco came back to the child and sat next to her, she let the child pet and cuddle her, Carla slowly put the leash over her head.... when mama came closer, she had to be very quick, but the dog Carla (named after the girl), came with them. She was a mother of many nests, she was pregnant and had a lot of scars, was scared, but now saved.
The girl Carla was so happy and proud, she had saved her first dog! Like mama, like daughter...
They are our future, may there be many children like Carla, so that animal suffering will still be fought against.
Carla, the podenco mama is now with us and receives the necessary care. She was lucky, and now let's keep it like that.
