The owners of the 12year old female were found and are very happy to have her back!

Almost like Christmas!!

0-lucky-23102007-11-36-24.jpg 0-lucky.jpg Little Lucky is thriving. 10 days ago she made us worry when she repeatedly showed severe symptoms of cramping. With great relief we learned that this is probably due to Hypoglycemia and treated it accordingly. She has started eating solid food and plays with big dogs…

Travelling with Boxes

00-box.jpg 0-box1.jpg 0-box-3.jpg Travelling with dogs seems too difficult to you? How about taking some boxes back from Germany on your way to Paros? This month Barbara brought 90kg of boxes (and a regular suitcase…) when she came home from Germany. Can they fit in a Taxi? Yes, if you have a good driver. Unfortunately Barbara made a mistake and had him drop her at the wrong ferry – quite a challenge to get these piles from point A to point B in Piraeus.

The photos show departure from Paros, the ferry, arrival in Germany, train ride to final destination and arrival in Hamburg.

Dogs lost and found

One of them was Bella-Roberta: picked up in Paroikia by Blondie and Tom V. and the other one Chica-Linda, who was taken in at BarBigs. Bella-Roberta is shown with foster-parents Blondie and Tom who had grown very fond of her and in the second picture with her owner from Athens. Chica-Linda can be seen with her owner from Paros who had been afraid that she had been killed. We are glad that the dogs are back with their loving owners!

Successful PAWS annual event '07

Friday, October 5th, 2007

Dog Trainer Event 07

PAWS held its annual event on Sunday 30 September at the Hotel Paros Agnanti. The main attraction this year was a silent auction with more than 60 valuable items or services generously donated by local merchants and individuals. The almost 100 participants had the opportunity to bid for useful products and acquire them at low prices.
The auction together with the entrance tickets raised about 3.000 € and since there were almost no costs involved, it was the all times best fund-raiser event for PAWS.
The Athena Hall at Paros Agnanti Hotel was the most convenient setting to host this kind of event. Other highlights of the evening were:
– a gourmets’ fingertip buffet graciously elaborated by Stephan from the Happy Green Cows, Bruce Hymers and Maria’s Pastry shop.
– the dog trainer Sadrina Valata and her star dog Leslie who came all the way from Athens especially for the event.
– a 15minutes video produced by the Greek Animal Welfare Fund, summarizing the issue.

We were hoping that more of the local population and the municipality were going to give leverage to the issue which burden is still carried almost exclusively by PAWS. Disappointingly only one vice-mayor honoured the event with its presence. The idea that came up for next year’s event is to hold it on the main square to make out of it a real popular and informative event.

Please find here the full list of all the contributions without which this achievement wouldn’t have been possible!
