 Desperate Dog….

Nina01 nina02

This beautiful dog has been abandoned in Cómpeta and urgently needs a home or foster.  Action for Animals have had him neutered, but without a foster family or refuge to take him to, he has no option but to stay on the streets unless someone can offer him a temporary place to stay or a permanent new home. He’s a beautiful dog and would make a lovely pet. Please contact Nina on 660586040 if you’d like more information or can offer any help


Chihuahua (girl) Available for Adoption
chi01 chi02 chi03

We used to run a dog rescue in the uk but closed it and moved to Spain in January as my wife’s health declined. However, we currently have a little chihuahua girl pup that was in a Spanish pet shop smelly and crying so my wife bought her (though she has since realised that it’s the norm here often so no longer goes in pet shops!). She is now 3 months old- has gained weight lovely (1.5kg and not expected to go over 4kg) and been vet checked, worm treated, flea treated, vaccinated etc at our lovely local vets.

She has been lead trained and off lead at our villa and there is a 20% discount for her spaying when she’s 6 months with our vets.

She will also have a passport.

She’s used to young children, cats and dogs so now just needs a forever home. She is a very happy, bouncy, loving girl who loves to play with her toys.

We called her Lola and she also has bowls/lead/collar- If you are interested in adopting her please email me on – pajones27 @ hotmail.co.uk


There would need to be a house check and vet reference. Also a contract to say you agree to spay- it is very dangerous for small dogs to have pups and there are enough dogs needing homes in the world so she is NOT for breeding and we would expect to stay in touch. There is an adoption fee to make sure the home is serious though it is a lot lower than her costs. Thank you! Adam

Recommendation Needed –Car body shop/resprayer


 Any Digamites out there who can personally recommend a vehicle paint spraying shop within the Velez Malaga/Nerja area. Responses to Digame so that perhaps others may use the service.


Responses to Eye Tests

My thanks to Steve for kindly taking the time to respond to my request concerning eye tests.  I will certainly be contacting Clinica Hidalgo for an appointment.

Thanks to Digamextra for this great exchange of information service. SP




Response     Amazon Fire Stick – Advice

I had the same message on mine. The stick does not get enough power from the tv alone and you need to use the power cord/ adapter to power the stick. Hope this works for you



 Recommendation Tree pruning – Competa area

From a Digamextra mention on 12/03 from Phil McEvoy (phillymc  @  fastmail.fm), I contacted Phil, who in turn made an appointment for Samuel (628 441 205) to come to my property to prune and give advice on fruit trees (orange, mango, nispero, avocado, olive and almond) and teach me how to do it in the future.

A VERY helpful young man, who made sure that I was confident with pruning before he left.

He also fully pruned 3 large and neglected olive trees and a number of almonds. From my experience of spending a morning with Samuel, I feel capable of doing this myself in the future.

Although Samuel only speaks Spanish, we were able to communicate and understand each other very well.

I can highly recommend his work and attitude.

Very reasonably priced work also.

What’s on –Nerja Decorative and Fine Arts Society

Nerja Society

Tuesday March 22th 2016

11am Museo de Nerja, Plaza España

The art and architecture of the Khmer Empire, 6th to 13th century

Angkor Wat and all that

Fully Illustrated talk in English Michael O’Brien PhD

Sponsored by  Liberty Seguros

Visitors most welcome €10

This lecture includes a brief account of the geography, the historical sources, the language and religion of the Khmers and traces the development of the empire from small Indianised states in the 6thc. to the establishment of their capital in the Angkor region in 802 and on to its demise after the middle of the 13thc. I will show how their sculpture and architecture evolved during this time. There are hundreds of temples and other structures at Angkor, three of the most significant will be discussed in more detail, Banteay Srei (967), Angkor Wat (early 12th.c) and The Bayon (early 13th c.) with brief mention of some others for their sculptural or architectural interest.

About Michael O’Brien

Michael has had a long interest in early Hindu sculpture and architecture and has made many visits to South and South East Asia, developing a particular interest in Khmer art and architecture. He has lectured to many societies on these topics, in the UK, France, the USA and two tours in Australia, including the South and South East Asian courses at the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the School of Oriental and African Studies and the Royal Archaeological Institute.
