Puppy – Dilly

Dilly03 Dilly02 Dilly

We went to the English Market at Trapiche wearing my special ‘Axarquia Animal Society Adopt Me Scarf’  hoping to find my new owner.   After looking all round the market we found a quiet place for me to play.  We met lots of people who made all sorts of oohing and aahing noises and said how wonderful I was but no one took me home.   My rescuer said that here in Spain there are many people suffering from a terminal illness called ‘Great Age Disease’  –  and this means that they think they will die before I do !   I don’t understand any of this but don’t I look pretty in my red scarf………..

My rescuer seems to be getting very fond of me – he says my new owner will have to be a very special person…….

Wanted –Briwax
I am looking for a supplier of the furniture wax called Briwax. It’s a wax with colour like Victorian Pine which protects and colours wood without gloss and allows the natural grain of the wood to show through.

don’t seem able to locate a supplier here in Spain.

It is very flammable if left in heat which is perhaps why it is so hard to find here. Does anybody have any knowledge of where I might track down this product here in Spain or of anything similar?
Looking forward to hearing from any body with any ideas.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
