Winner of 'Veteran over 8 years'  at Costa Vicentina Fun Dog Show 2018 The show was held Restaurant Vale Da Telha and Hugos Bar at the Pines Roundabout and was hosted by Friends of AEZA to raise funds for the dog and cat shelter in Aljezur. The show organiser Lynda said there are usually around 40-60 dogs and cats in the shelter with another 30-40 in foster care, all the dogs get walked three times a week by volunteers, The shelter also goes into local schools to educate the local children in animal care. A total of 56 dogs were entered into the various classes and the day began with an obedience and agility demonstration with the dogs and members from the Algarve Dog Training Club.

GoldraIt has been a wretched couple of weeks at Goldra. Last time I reported that one of the rescues from the hellhole has been put to sleep. Two more dogs lost their fight for life in that same week. Java, another of the rescues, and Bramble, an earlier resident, both died of heartworm infection. These events are very disheartening to those closest to the action, and Jan recorded cleaning out in tears last week. But that is only half the story.

The show will be hosted on and between the terraced frontages of two neighbouring restaurants around the landmark Pines Roundabout, thanks to the hospitality of Jose Orelha at the Restaurante Vale da Telha and Hugo Nanitas of Hugo’s Bar.

GoldraVisiting Goldra this morning in the sunshine (!) it was hard to imagine what it must have been like last weekend in the midst of the storm. All have survived, and there is little damage, but this is just the surface. Dealing with situations like that takes it out of the humans on the Hill, but it also does no good for the four-footers. Just like us, they tend to be more ill in bad weather, and this adds both to the physical and the financial burden on the organisation, including the fact that some people are (fairly naturally) reluctant to turn out to walk the dogs in such atrocious conditions - but they still need the exercise.
