Dog Needs Permanent Home


My name is Chico and I am castrated Podenco, approximately 1.5 years old,  weighing 11 kilos. I’ve had all my shots and I have a passport to travel in the EU.  However, since being rescued by Axarquia Animal Rescue in August 2015, I have been spending my days in a kennel and lately at a foster home, but I so want to have my very own family to love.  Could you be looking for a sweet and loving boy like me?  I promise to give you lots of love and to put a smile on your face everyday.   P.S. My foster mom says that I’m very handsome, but that kind of talk just makes my pink nose go pinker.  For more information, please contact AAR at  http://www.axarquianimalrescue.com/  My foster mom, Val, says you can also email her for more information about what a lovely, sweet-natured boy I am (vsheppard7@gmail.com).  Thank you!



Lost Dog Rescued

lost dog

This small podenco with an emerald green collar was found on the circumvalacion close to the Mirador de Torrox apartments on Monday evening, she was almost run over twice so I brought her home with me. She obviously has a home as she is well fed and very friendly. She does not have a microchip. Please ring me for more information:- Sue. 952539370 mobile 629501173.



Dogs on Beaches – Opinion (The Final  Post on this subject)

In reply to the post that dogs should never be on beaches used by sunbathers (those lying around getting skin cancer).

I do not condone leaving one’s dog excrement on the beach or anywhere else.

If the authorities would create dog friendly beaches then people could avoid

them if they wanted to.

How many thousands of kilometres of beaches are there in Spain? Yet I do not know of one where dogs are allowed.

Has the person who posted ever looked at the human mess that is all over the beaches in far greater abundance than dog mess? There are hypodermic needles, soiled nappies, plastic bags, pizza and other fast food containers, vomit, broken bottles etc, etc. Most of the rubbish is non-biodegradable and some of it is quite dangerous.

I have seen women letting their children poo on the beach and not pick it up, but all of this seems to be O.K.

There is room for us all and we should share it responsibly.

Looking for Karen or Jacinto…. 

Does anyone have any contact with Karen or Jacinto who used to run Allsorts in Nerja? They were selling John Hardy’s books for us (on a sale or return basis), and we were surprised to find the shut shop for renovation the last time we went. The new Allsorts is under new management, and couldn’t help us. The number I have for them just rings unanswered, I can’t even leave a message. We would like to get our books back, or the money for them, so if anyone can help, please email wendy.sedella @ hotmail.com or if you prefer to ring, 951069997.

Responses –Eye tests

The following clinic carry out very extensive eye tests, they will give you a prescription without trying to sell you glasses.

They have clinics from Granada to Torremolinos, with a very good one in Velez Malaga.




Recommendation –Casa Magel

Having read positive reviews of Casa Magel on Digamextra, we decided to book two nights B and B last week and we had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Maggie and Eli, our hosts, were welcoming and friendly and booked us onto the walk on the caminito del rey. Our room was very comfortable and Maggie’ s food is lovely. Their house has magnificent  views of the mountains and is very well placed for trips to El Torcal, the wolves park and El Chorro.

A lovely place to stay and we will certainly be going back.

What’s on –Amicorum Choir

choirAmicorum is a different choir.

Because our rehearsal space is generously donated by one of our members (as is the keyboard), music is generally sourced free of copyright from the internet, and our musical director (an ex musician and academic) charges no fees, we pay no subscriptions. We rehearse a wide range of music, from 16th century Italian and English madrigals to 20th century spirituals and art songs (such as ‘All in the April Evening’).
The rehearsal session lasts two hours without a break and is quite light-hearted, after which we enjoy tea and refreshments including each other’s company. Perhaps what marks us out from other choirs in the area is that most of us read music to a greater or lesser extent, although some of us freely admit that it is going on for half a century since we last read music!
If the above sounds appealing to you, please do get in touch.

Or email addresses are

amicorum8 @ gmail dot com (secretary) or

musicus @ outlook dot es (musical director).

We meet weekly in Torrox Costa.

What’s on Namaste. Yoga

Yoga for everybody in Nerja, Torrox and Torre del Mar

My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practising Yoga since 14 years – nearly every day – and it changed my life. To understand Yoga you have to practise regular. With increasing practise your power, confindence & well-being will grow slowly. Your view will go to the inside and this will make a change in your life.

Everybody can practise my Yoga whatever age or physical condition. I always work in little groups and i will adapt the Yoga posture to every single student. I mix Ayur Yoga, therapeutic Yoga, Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the basic you will find in Hatha Yoga. Every class can be different as i always work in needs of my students. Come along and try out and learn to boost & stretch in a healthy way:

Mondays 10 h and 20.30 in Nerja

Wednesdays 10.30 h (men only) in Nerja and 12 h in Torrox

Thursdays 11.30 h in Torre del Mar, 18 h in Torrox and 20.30 h in Nerja


For those who don’t like to work in a group, I offer one-to-one sessions in Nerja or at your residence.

For more information visit my website: www.solyoga.es,

call me +34 627 411 358 or email me info.solyoga@gmail.com

Wishing you all a wonderful week
