3 Lovely Pups Looking For a Home

laura01 laura02 laura03

We still have 3 lovely little pups looking for a home out of the original 9 that were dumped on our doorstep on January 3rd.  Miko and Mimi are just like twin brother and sister with playful personalities who love cuddles.  Sherlock has an inquisitive nature and is still the smallest of the bunch.  All three are now 12 weeks old and have been fully vaccinated except for the rabies jab, which must be done by their new owner along with the microchip.  Sherlock is just under 5 kilos while Mimi is nearly 6 kilos and we think they will only be about 10-12 kilos when fully grown so they will be about Jack Russell size.  If you can give any one of these waifs a good home please call Laura at 646 613 885.



Puppies Still Seeking Homes 


We still have three puppies to home and I’m hoping that their new owners are out there just waiting to hear – these three certainly are waiting with great excitement

Here are two that can be seen at San Fernando vet in Nerja during the week – just a short film about their visit https://youtu.be/A0eKY0xb3IE

If you are interested or can spread the word it could make everyone happy.

Truly Amazing Male Dog – Blind Since Birth


Pancho (AAR 1207) came into our lives in December. A medium-sized podenco with a super soft coat, he’s under 2 years old and while we’ve learned that – he’s been blind since birth – he has confidence and navigates our large, terraced garden with relative ease. He is truly one of the easiest foster dogs we’ve ever had. We just don’t know why he hasn’t yet been adopted. He has mixed very well with our other dogs, male and female. Check out the photo and you’ll see that everyone falls in love with Pancho. He really likes children too. Contact www.axarquianimalrescue.com/ for more information or to arrange to meet him.



Dogs on Beaches – Opinion

Dogs should never be allowed on a beach used by sunbathers. Their foul excrement, left untouched by too many inconsiderate dog owners, to be found stuck to sandals, or beach towels. The ‘mess’ that is the Torrox Costa Paseo, testament to how many dog owners are happy to ignore their pooches daily do’s.

Services Needed –Eye Tests

Does anyone know where I can get just a good thorough eye test and the prescription without buying a pair of glasses? Most opticians will not give you the prescription without a purchase.  I am not a lover of Specsavers.

Please reply to Digamextra.  Many thanks SP



Services –Blocked Drains

We feel that we need to inform anyone that has blocked drains that the solution is to call the experts in and “Waynes Drains” are certainly the ones to call as we had a very difficult blockage and no access to the drain , it was detected by Mike and Rob with there tracking device , they removed.

a tile in the hallway and unblocked the drain , and replaced the tile with one that I had spare (luckily). they then constructed a drain access outside complete with metal lid and replaced the tiles . the result was perfect and there cleanliness excellent

Can anyone recommend a repairer of iPhones in the Nerja area?

Responses –Vaping

There is something else that you need to be aware of if you are vaping. In some cases, eliquid vendors will substitue acetyl propionyl or acetoin for diacetyl. While these are less harmful both of these substances can be converted into diacetyl by the body. So you don’t want to accept eliquids with diacetyl, acetyl propionyl or acetoin.

This is a long read but worth the effort….

Cheers, Keith, (non-smoker or vaper)



Recommendation –Bouquet for Man with Van Transport Service

bouq DogMy family and I, in Velez, second the motion!!  We had a tedious move a few days back and Merv provided the much needed help of transporting and moving heavy items.  His professional manner of being prompt with his replies and friendly and courteous throughout were impressive!!

His truck is clean and specious and he knows how to fit the bulky items to optimize the space in his van.  Well done Merv!!

He is a keeper!!



Responses –Vegetarian Restaurants


I can only answer for restaurants that I have been to in Nerja.
La Joya- Calle los Huertos Nerja
Lan Sang-Calle Malaga Nerja (also has restaurant at Burriana beach Yuu Taaley)
Jaipur-Calle los Huertos Nerja
Restaurant Asiatico Yuan- Apartamento Verano Azul Nerja
Julie’s Place off of the church square at Balcon de Europa Nerja
I can also state that most ethnic restaurants will cater to vegetarians, leaving out the meat.
You can also do a search on Tripadvisor and click the box for vegetarian under cuisines (if the area has vegetarian restaurants) on the left hand menu, for any city in the Costa del Sol.
LS Competa


The Good Stuff café in Nerja makes their own pies, pasties, cakes and quiches, serving a number of vegetarian options. They make a range of delicious salads to accompany them too. It is at the top of C/ Chaparil where it meets with the main road, just a little further along after the ‘bumpy’ bridge where El Puente restaurant and Supersol is. They are shut on Sundays but open Mon-Sat 9am until 8pm so we go there for an early supper sometimes

(and sometimes lunch, and tea and cake!). Barbara



Recommendation for Computer Help

I have Windows 10 installed and have had a problem printing from the internet. Following a recent recommendation on DigameXtra I e-mailed Peter Mus for help. I received an immediate reply followed by a series of questions and answers related to my problem.

This resulted in a visit by Peter the following day at exactly the time agreed.

Peter proved to be very knowledgeable and was able to resolve my problem within a very short period of time.

Highly recommended, his e-mail address is, torroxcostarental @ hotmail.com
