German Shepherd Dog seen roaming

A male Alsatian and his black collie dog friend were seen wandering on the mountain track from the helicopter pad towards Acebuchel near the ford  on Saturday afternoon 7 May, around 4pm.

The Alsatian is wearing a leather collar and both dogs seem friendly.

I am guessing they are lost or have been dumped.

If either dog is yours or you can rescue them please recover them soon

as they are obviously hungry.

Scary Happening in Competa – Warning
.I wanted to share with everyone what happened last night at our house in the area of Cruz de Zarja, Competa.

We had a friend come for the evening so main gates to our property were open and our car and hers were parked on the drive. Several rooms had lights on.

We had  music playing, and we were talking, so quite obviously someone was in the house

About 9.30pm we heard a noise outside and what sounded like our sun room door opening and closing.

I got up, went into the sun room followed by my husband to see a man outside. He went “BOOO !!” …. to us then ran away very fast.

He was white about 5ft.9, wearing light coloured trousers and a dark hooded top. We found it very frightening and unnerving to say the least.

Was it a potential burglar or what was he up to?

He disappeared into the night.

No sign of anybody else or any car, so please be vigilant and keep your doors locked.

Did anyone else have a similar experience? if so please post on Digamextra


Pavo Real Quiz in aid of Cudeca Cancer Care-Thanks
On Friday, 6th May;  The Pavo Real, Competa held a fun quiz evening where 156.80 euros was raised in aid of Cudeca Cancer Care.
Many thanks to Karina and Paul Watson of Pavo Real for their hospitality together with Liz and Stewart Bland for organising the quiz and everyone for their continued support to Cudeca.   Thank you.   Cindy Jones,  Cudeca Volunteer.


Non Residents & UK Registered Cars
I know that you said that todays’ (Sunday) post would be the last on the matter, however a statement made by Tony Pulle is incorrect, and I do feel that it needs addressing.

He states that a non resident cannot own a Spanish registered car, which is totaly incorrect. Prior to moving out to live in Spain full time, we owned a Spanish registered car which was kept at our holiday home and  used  when we were here. In order to purchase it we needed an NIE and insurance, and it needed to be kept roadworthy and subject to a periodic ITV test.

I hope that you will publish this as many readers will have been mislead.

Best wishes,


(I’m nothing if not Flexible ! but this really is the final entry  Jane)

Puppies need help

pups01 pup04 pup03 pup02

Click to enlarge pics

I have 3 puppies (2 brown male 1 white female) that have been abandoned near my house in the campo (Los Romanes area)….Dad is still about but no sign of Mum. I have put some food and shelter out to tide them over but I am going back to UK in a few days and if no one can take them I dare not think what will become of them whilst I’m away.

There must be someone who can take them PLEASE. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thank you – Alison      alisonpenn48@yahoo.co.uk

Recommendation – Namaste

We would just like to say, we were in Nerja earlier this week & came across-

Namaste –  a new Nepalese & Indian Restaurant in Calle Cristo (Post Office Street).

They  have been open a couple of months & the food was excellent,

one of the best on the coast.

Try it, we are sure you will return.

Jules and Jim. Competa



Recommendation- The Orangerie Torrox Costa

Two days ago we sampled the allegedly “Best ribs on the Costa Del Sol.”

Well, don’t know about that, but they were certainly the best we’ve tasted

so far here on the Costa.

Today we went back and tried the Dutch tapas menu, and again we weren’t


The staff were cheery and helpful, and very efficient, and they guided us

through their menu, and advised us what to sample. They couldn’t do enough.

We ate outside, but the restaurant itself was clean, with excellent disabled access and toilets, should it be required.

It is situated near the lighthouse in Torrox, (don’t let the beach works put you off.)

Open every day except Tuesday from 11am – 9.30pm, although this is flexible

depending on the amount of customers left.

Two happy customers.

Geoff and Maria.



Recommendation- Doctor Laptop  

bouq Dog

Can I propose a bouquet for Naythan, Doctorlaptop.   First for his information and warnings to the community.  Secondly for the generous way he is willing to give help and information by email.  I am not even a ‘customer’ yet but his advice has helped me a lot as my technical expertise is fast getting dated.

I know where I will be going with any computer problems
