A bit more information on ”desperate dog

desp Dog desp dog 02

We have had this beautiful dog in foster care for the past few days but unfortunately we cannot adopt him at the moment and he desperately needs a permanent home.

He is the gentlest dog one can imagine. We reckon he is about one year old and still very playful. He is walking well on a leash. I have walked him on trails and he learned within two days to walk beside me or behind me.

Newly neutered will reduce his problem with other male dogs and refocus on his owner. He is very intelligent and learns fast. Loves to be close to his owner and jumps into the car and lays down without any problem. He loves to explore and is curious about everything. He needs to be trained on basic commands, which we do not conceive as any problem. He is a large and strong dog, so he needs a firm but loving hand. With lots of love and cuddles and a bit of guidance, you will have a great friend for life.

If you want to know more about the dog you can contact me: Lars 642147155. For adoption please contact Nina on 660586040.

He speaks a little english, or I am happy to translate for him if needed, my no. is 952516438. Thank you Gustavo.

Responses – Hearing Aid Batteries

In reply to your request I bought some from the optician hearing aid shop in Nerja opposite the garage on Avenida Pescis


You can buy on line at a much lower price from HAB in Keighley West Yorkshire They will post to you.

The make I bought in Nerja was Rayovac 10 euros for 6 batteries from HAB I get 60 for £17.

Hope this helps. Val



Responses to Ad – Hairdresser Needed

Further to the ad on today’s Digame I can highly recommend the hairdresser Angela at ‘Bella’.  I have been lucky enough to have her as my stylist since moving to Torrox Costa a year ago and I have found her to be second to none in attention to detail and in listening to what I want

Her prices are so reasonable too.

She is fluent in Spanish and English and copes well with clients who speak other languages.

Situated down a ginnel (alley way ) virtually opposite Mercadona and just past the ‘Tails’ charity shop

The salon is stylish and easily reached by car or bus (bus passengers coming from the Nerja direction get off at the first stop after the main Torrox Costa layby). . May I add that I have no connection with ‘Bella’, or any of its staff, I am just a very satisfied customer.  Tel 626269685.



Thanks for Advice re Smoky Fire

Thank you to Nigel and Keith for your responses to my smoky fire enquiry.
We have checked the mesh and it’s not clogged, so we are now in search of a metal cowl. Hopefully we I’ll have it all sorted in time for next winter! Sue



Recommendation – Steel Fabricator                                                                   Have recently used the services of James to carry out some metal works.pleased with end result.can be contacted on 638293059.based in frigiliana but travels extensively.
