All of Viktor Larkhill’s dogs: (sorry I could not include some of them)
I fell madly in love, especially with Mia and Mini and in fact no matter where we were and what we were doing, my partner and I couldn’t wait to get back home to be with them.

  2. Βαλια ασχετο: ειδα τα μωρα σου στην TV! Καλα μιλαμε σταρουμπες…. λεω στην αρχη πολυ γνωστα μου φαινονται αυτα τα σκυλια

  3. Mimi is so amazingly beautiful, sweet sweet girl. Oh momma Mia! Such a sweet sweet girl too. Rocky, how sweet and lively for a fellow that was tossed away in the trash! omg. Luna, sweet Luna, how she kept going with two broken legs and carrying babies!!!! Geez my god, I will never ever understand how humans can just be so cruel and heartless, uncaring, no souls, ice in their veins. Valia, this was beautiful! Mimi has just grabbed onto my heart, her face, her softness when she puts her ears back listening. Treasured memories I am sure.

  4. Beautiful! Beautiful! video of pure unconditional love. Proud to follow the road you follow. Love rules. love conquers all. Bless them all the darling fur babies of our hearts,and the other darlings that we hope that will come to share our heartbeats.We love you so all the darling fur babies of the world. XXX Love conquers all.XXX Patricia

  5. Hi Valia, what a lovely video!! I hope you are doing well. What you and Viktor, among with so many other men and women who rescue animals is soooooo important and vital!!!!!!!! Thank you sooooooooooo much for all you do!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Luna reminds me of my dearly departed soulmate Max here, so much so that her video is often just too heartbreaking for me to watch.

  7. Valia,
    Please don't despair. You are one beautiful human being and there's not many like you on this planet, that is why YOU have to be strong and carry on doing what you do. Please don't let every thing get you down. I know it seems like
    "What's the point, there's going to be even more dogs abandoned next week, next month, next year"….. and unfortunately there will be, every where. BUT for those, you are the people, the ones, you and Takis and Viktor are here to save. This is why you are here. So please don't despair because you are all they have and you do wonderful life saving/changing work for all the animals you come into contact with, so think of those happy wagging tails and carry on.
    You are loved and respected more than you can imagine.

  8. V alliance I have been through all your thoughts and feelings with you since you started not because I feel a better person but sometimes in my heart I am with you x

  9. I can't change other peoples behaviour towards animals but I can love one at a time. I got my dog when she was three years old. She's my baby and now she is 14,5 … We are going the Camino this year and she has her own house with her on a wagon – just she and I … together … always … in a long goodbye before she leaves me … <3

  10. I literally cried from begining untill end. You give the most beautiful voice to this amazing gifts that dog's are for humans! I have two furr babies myself and they are the absolute love of my life. They saved me, they stay when everyone is leaving and they love in a way that can only be compared with a mother's love, pure and absolute. We humans really don't deserve this amazing gift they are.I believe animals was God's way of telling us,, I am with you every second,,

  11. I am so happy you got to know all of Viktor’s dogs. Each one is a grateful miracle. It really is all about love. ? I support Valia on Patreon.

  12. Many thanks for all video you produce even the one you do with many cries. You are the most couragous person Valia. Thanks you to be you. You are irremplacable.

  13. Valia, Look for the YT channel name inchbyinchatatime and really listen to it. I'm not into sports, but I see the passion and words are about life. And for animal loving rescuers & saviours, I hear, visualize, and, feel they fight to save lives "inch by inch" every single day. It's who you are, you're a giver not a taker. To not be who you are and not saving animal lives inch by inch is to sell your soul. To every single rescued animal they've been given a chance they would not have had with likely much continued suffering if you had not rescued. Valia YOU, Viktor, Valencia hospital staff, Takis, the lady who had Apollo and so, so many many more are on the front lines fighting "inch by inch" to make a difference! Impossible to save all but you and others are making a difference inch by inch. In my eyes you embody heavenly karma, as well as all those that rescue, heal, and educate with every ounce of passion given. Find the channel above and really really intently listen with your heart:

    Al Pacino's Inch By Inch speech from Any Given Sunday

    I don't know what to say really.
    Three minutes
    to the biggest battle of our professional lives
    all comes down to today.
    we heal
    as a team
    or we are going to crumble.
    Inch by inch
    play by play
    till we're finished.
    We are in hell right now, gentlemen
    believe me
    we can stay here
    and get the shit kicked out of us
    we can fight our way
    back into the light.
    We can climb out of hell.
    One inch, at a time.

    Now I can't do it for you.
    I'm too old.
    I look around and I see these young faces
    and I think
    I mean
    I made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.
    I uh….
    I pissed away all my money
    believe it or not.
    I chased off
    anyone who has ever loved me.
    And lately,
    I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror.

    You know when you get old in life
    things get taken from you.
    That's, that's part of life.
    you only learn that when you start losing stuff.
    You find out that life is just a game of inches.
    So is football.
    Because in either game
    life or football
    the margin for error is so small.
    I mean
    one half step too late or to early
    you don't quite make it.
    One half second too slow or too fast
    and you don't quite catch it.
    The inches we need are everywhere around us.
    They are in ever break of the game
    every minute, every second.

    On this team, we fight for that inch
    On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us
    to pieces for that inch.
    We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.
    Cause we know
    when we add up all those inches
    that's going to make the fucking difference
    between WINNING and LOSING
    between LIVING and DYING.

    I'll tell you this
    in any fight
    it is the guy who is willing to die
    who is going to win that inch.
    And I know
    if I am going to have any life anymore
    it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch
    because that is what LIVING is.
    The six inches in front of your face.

    Now I can't make you do it.
    You gotta look at the guy next to you.
    Look into his eyes.
    Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.
    You are going to see a guy
    who will sacrifice himself for this team
    because he knows when it comes down to it,
    you are gonna do the same thing for him.

    That's a team, gentlemen
    and either we heal now, as a team,
    or we will die as individuals.
    That's football guys.
    That's all it is.
    Now, whattaya gonna do?

    Con mucho mucho cariño
    Chelita, "Shelly", USA

    Where there is abuses of power, I anchor diplomacy. Where there is hatred, I anchor love. Where there is ignorance and indecency, I anchor intelligence. Where there is separation and division, I anchor oneness and unity. For the evolution of all. ???
    Your stories cloud my eyes with tears and fill my heart with hope and love Valia?

  15. Valia, you are such a gifted writer and narrator. You bring me into the private, loving moments that you have with each of your furry companions. You are different. You meet them where they are, not where you are. You accept them as they are and in doing so, learn their truth, which opens a channel of love that you share with the dog you are with. They know and you know it. There's no mistake. It's genuine. It's the real deal. I think the day you arrive in Heaven, God will put you in charge of meeting all of the new dogs upon their arrival. Don't be surprised if Viktor and Takis are alongside there to help you.

  16. Mimi reminds me of my girl, LuLu ? she was found as a 8ish month old puppy, engorged with milk and appearing to have just given birth, emaciated and terrified of everything. No puppies anywhere. My parents live in a popular dumping area and we assume she was discarded there. She has become the funniest, sassiest, loveliest little dog and I love her so much ?❤️ I am truly blessed by the universe to be her mother.
