New Home Needed for Husky Cross  

Husky01 husky02

Husky cross beauty needs an active home – aged 2 years old and only 15 kg as she’s crossed with a smaller breed. Comes with passport, just had new vaccines and rabies, is chipped and neutered. She has also just been groomed for the summer heat but has amazing long hair for when its cooler. Comes with large dog crate – she loves her indoor kennel as it’s her space, blankets, bowls, lead, collar, harness, toys and some food

Due to a chronic health condition diagnosis , she is getting very bored with short walks due to my health and would really enjoy running or a house with land. She’s extremely bright and could easily do agility or training awards or even hunting. She’s very good travelling long distances in the car and loves walks.

Would prefer her with older children as she can be bouncy, and medium / large dogs as small ones seem to scare her as do house cats.

She is the kind of dog that people stop us to ask us where we had her and what breed  as she’s that gorgeous. If you think you could offer this girl a home  then please email me or call on 0034 684 226996 so we can arrange a meeting and a home check.




Spanish Language Practice – Thanks

Can I thank all those kind people via Digamextra who contacted me with options to practice my Spanish conversation. Barbara



Heaps of sand on Torrox Beach? Response

I have discovered that these will be used to build a pitch on the beach for a volleyball tournament this coming weekend.



For the information of Digamites.

From Wednesday this week for 2 months the road from Canillas de Albaida to Archez between both sets of traffic lights will be closed to all vehicles/persons.  New sewerage piping etc and relaying of carriageway.

Many thanks Kevin. (Jane Editor)



Of  interest to Animal Owners

Seeing the post about the animal shop next to Wortens has prompted me about an animal products website I found while trawling the internet which I thought would be of some interest to fellow readers. It is called animalclan.com/es/ it is only in Spanish and Portuguese but the products are all known makes so shouldn’t be a problem.

I ordered an Excalibur collar and 4 advantix pipettes and saved over €20 compared to vet/pet shop prices, free delivery on orders over €25 and the bonus is it is also local, when the package arrived it had a sender’s address in Calle Carabeo 4, so there may well be a shop there as well.
