Greyhound Galgo

I’m with a new friend here: he is my dad’s dog Urkel, a beautiful greyhound with an happy ending story. He was one of the greyhound galgos rescued from Spain by an organization who placed them around Europe. As soon as my dad came to know about this, he traveled to Milan where the organization had set the meeting with the future families of the rescued dogs, and my dad took Urkel with him. Don’t worry about how skinny he is, because that’s how he is supposed to stay according to the vet, I promise he isn’t starving! I think that he saw the camera for the very first time in his life, so he was curious about the fact that we were taking the photos with him. Adopting him litterally changed my dad’s life, it’s amazing how  he gained a new loyal friend by making a good action.

    Looks like I can comment on your posts again. 🙂 This is such a heartwarming story, Alessia! I am so happy your dad was able to save Urkel. I’m curious about how he got his name. There was a show in the 90s here in the US called “Family Matters” and the main character was named Steve Urkel. Urkel’s name reminds of the that show. Lol!

      Hi Lizzy, I finally solved this problem so everyone can leave comments again! Thank you so much for letting me know, I had no idea.
      Thank you for your kind message, Urkel already had this name when he arrived in Italy. We didn’t know how to pronounce his name at first, so Urkel wasn’t giving us much of attention when we called him, we figured out later how to call him with the right accent. 🙂
      Thank you again Lizzy!!!
