Magic took Petal, the galgo, along to tell the holidaymakers about Greyhound Compassion, the link with Quaker Concern for Animals and to talk to them about greyhound racing.  He also, without much effort,  showed them what fabulous pets greyhounds make. We also covered the plight of the galgos and the work of Protectora y Santuario Scooby in Spain.

It was a really lovely event. The dogs were met with a very warm welcome with great company and a very friendly atmosphere. Magic and Petal seemed to go down a storm too.
