18/1/2016 The whole fence is being re-inforced and heightened for better security for both the dogs and us!
18,000 euros worth of kennels will be used temporarily at the new center until we raise money for the next set of walls! Then they will be used as temporary kennels for the 3rd and 4th block then when no longer needed will be donated to another charity!
“How are things now?
Of course it’s normal to have all sorts of emotions but it seems some of you have not understood what I mean about being sad at the changes occurring when the fincas have been such a disaster & difficult to live in. The fincas be it terrible and completely unsuitable have been the life span of GDS. It’s been all I know. I’ve lived with the dogs in my home which at times has been so stressful it led to a family breakdown and all sorts of problems but we kept going.
Did I question things the day before leaving? Of course I did, just as I did before getting married, before leaving the UK to live in the Middle East then Spain, before starting a family, even before selling my favourite sports car to buy a family wagon – ugh! Even positive change can be hard but we stormed ahead anyway without looking back. Do I have any regrets? NO FRIGGIN WAY.
Is the Center awesome? More than bloody awesome, I love it and couldn’t be prouder of all us if I tried. How did I feel the first night without the dogs at the finca? I missed them because I worried about how they were settling in in their new environment but I felt the weight of the world had been lifted off my shoulders personally, wondered how I held on for so long.
Whats the main difference I see in the dogs now? They are calmer, there seems to be balance, they were happy before but now they are happy in a settled way. We are exactly where we are meant to be. The place looks a little baron but soon we plant trees, put in play equipment and landscape. My emotions were only concerning the huge changes not leaving the fincas.
What do I miss about the fincas? THE DOGS. Would I do anything differently? NO. The journey I’ve been on has been driven by passion with your support, the only reason I kept going was because I loved these dogs so much and because you believed in me. The change has been hard but that doesn’t mean I don’t want those changes. I hope that explains things.
Onwards and Upwards, the next chapter begins and we are storming thru the pages already! I can’t wait for the next roller coaster!”
