Today, I thought I’d introduce you to my three furry friends. You might be wondering: why three? I’ve always had just two cats? Well, around a week ago we got a new baby in the house, and that’s a little doggie!
I’ve posted some pictures of the doggie in my Instagram account this week, so some of you might already be familiar with her cute little face. If you’re not friends with me there yet, join me! I post pictures of my daily life, so, if you’d like to know me on a more personal level, let’s connect!
Her full name is Giulietta Sprint Veloce – just because my Italian husband is quite crazy about classic cars, he wanted to give her the name of a classic car. Sprint Veloce means Sprint Fast, and she’s a hunting dog, so she’s pretty fast. We thought it would be an appropriate name. Or my husband thought so at least…
We got her a week ago when she was 3.5 months old. She was rescued from horrible conditions by a lovely German family. They found her when she was only 4 days old, locked up in a shed with 4 adult dogs. Things like that happen in the Canarian islands all the time because Podencos (she’s a Canarian Podenco) are primarily used for hunting. The stupid hunters think that in order to make the dogs hunt better, they’re supposed to be beaten up, tortured, starved and kept in the dark… Basically, they’re treated as tools rather than living animals.
