Welcome back, Hill!! Here we call the "rehome dog failures" Foster Failures. Every person who rescues or tries to foster dogs seems to have at least one Foster Failure in the house. They blend right in with the dogs we meant to have :wink: .

Hope to see you around more!

Hi Guys,
Sorry to have been away from the board so long.............so much has been happening here and it would have taken me days to write it all down. There have been lots of changes here and chaotic times lol lets put it that way;)

Since last time we have adopted another Galgo called Rique but will post more on him later on...........I could hardly believe the story of this dog :(

Will really try to keep up here now, and to all I have missed on the bio bit....welcome here.

Apologies for being abscent :oops:

HELLO HIL!!!!! We have all missed you on this forum. I believe the last I saw you were involved with the rescue efforts of those poor hunting dogs (sight hounds) from an island off the coast of Spain, no? How goes the fight?

Anyway, I know you are very busy, but I hope you will be able to stick around a little longer this time. We all value your input.
:D :D :D

Fight is still on Susan;-) .....we have another dog now we called him
Riqué . Will post him up in a sec.....he was worse off than the other one we have.....Arlo(the speedy one on the beach vid). Im still rehoming the workingdogs everyday but my heart is also with the sighthounds, so I do as much as possible for a rescue here in Holland where we had our two from.

I will try to stick around this time.......glue me down:lol:

@ Jerry.......thx mate for the welcome back too

Hoi Hill, another "Island Boy" on this forum albeit a very small one :wink:
Are you the result of Selena recruiting skills?
My brother goes to Texel for 2 weeks every summer. This year I think he was washed out :-({|= I think that's why he takes an extra week to Italy 8)

Hi Robert:D Nice to see a fellow island inhabitant:lol: although your island would be a bit more tropical than mine;-) .

I got here about the same time as Seleen through an invite from Mike when this forum stated up last year I think it was, although I know Seleen has one of the best recruting skills around :lol: she's famous for it;-) .
Where does your brother live? Yeah the summer here was really rainy and lots of people got washed out on campings etc due to the heavy downfall and lots of thunderstorms.
