Two Puppies Need Homes this week

Pup01 Pup02 pup03 Pup04 pup05

The two puppies you see in the pics, a brother and sister, have recently adopted us and we’d like to find homes for them.

However, there seems to be a glut of stray animals at the moment and none of our local shelters have room for them. Sadly, we can’t continue to foster them for much more than a week as we have travel plans. If we can’t find homes for them before then, we’ll have no choice but to let them back out on the street or drop them off at a perrera, which are both terrible options for them.

They are very sweet, have gained a bit of weight since the pics, great with children (including our own toddler, with whom they are very patient), and would make someone fine pets. For their sake, if anyone out there can take them, please let us know. Thanks.

Services Needed help with gas oven

My Technogas calor oven is not working – the gas supply is coming through well no problem there but after the oven is lit and the flame is apparent after you release the knob that you have been holding in for some minutes the flame will not stay in – I would be very grateful if someone could recommend a person to fix it for me – the grill and the rings on top all work. I live near Arenas

Thank you Chris

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