I wish I had a galgo!

Notes from the slide show -
On November 21st 2008 we flew to Barcelona in Spain to visit Anna and Albert of SOS Galgos and play a benefit gig for them at City Hall, the event was called 'Concierto Benefico Live cantante de rock 'Maria Daines a favor a los galgos necesitados' and it was fantastic! The event started with an Egyptian fashion show where the models were all dressed as Cleopatra, including an amazing Egyptian King! The models walked down the red carpet each walking with a beautiful dog, most of them galgos, it was so glamorous and unforgettable.
On the day after the event we went for a walk on the beach with many of SOS Galgos rescue dogs and that's where we met the precious galgo named 'Wonder', she is blind but you would not believe it if you met her, she is loveable, intelligent, happy, sweet natured, and now, the best part of all, she has her own family because she has been adopted and they love her very much. Of all the special memories we took home with us from the trip, meeting Wonder and her family is something we will always treasure and even thinking about it now I have a lump in my throat.
My mum, Mary Coe, painted a picture of Wonder and donated it to SOS Galgos and on the beach I was able to present the picture to Wonder's mum and dad, it was quite an emotional moment and as you can see, Wonder is looking at the picture of her wonderful self!
Thank you to everyone who made us so welcome in Spain and thank you to Anna Clements, Albert Sorde and volunteers of SOS Galgos who do such a vital job saving and rehoming the galgos and greyhounds that badly need help when they are cast out or neglected.
