Labrador Found in Canillas

Has anybody in the Canillas de Albaida/Competa lost a very friendly black Labrador wearing a collar with bone decoration – as twice now we have seen this dog around,

It joins us when we take our dogs out and tonight it came to our door. We gave it some water and it wanted to come in but we have 2dogs and 2cats and they were a bit afraid. We were able to stop it coming in and it went away. Paul, Competa.

Our phone number, it is 951067715


Help for these Doomed Puppies Please   

puupies pound

There are 5 pups at the Pound……

These pups will get ill. They are in a small unsuitable cage – full of fleas and tics and get seen too once a day!

Once a day to be cleaned, fed and watered.

I am begging for foster care!! These dogs will not survive in these conditions.

Please someone – give us a week please

Please note The Nerja Pound Is Not a re-homing centre, if we don`t help the Dogs will be sent to the Pound in Malaga and if Not Homed …..They will be Killed. If they don’t catch parvo before..

contact Laura 689 489 730


Help with White Flies…..

Has anyone the solution to the hundreds of tiny white flies that gather round our bedside lamps covering everything near including us and sheets etc?

Answers here please for benefit of others.



In response to ‘Vigilance in the hot weather’ (July 19th).

Whilst it would be very conscientious to smash a car window to protect a hot child or dog in this heat, I do think Keith is perhaps slightly simplifying the situation

If you go and smash a car window in Lidl car park I think you would have more than an insurance company to contend with. Namely the security guard, the owner of the car, the Guardia Civil, and anyone else that may misinterpret your actions (Are they breaking into my car to steal stuff? Steal my child or dog? Has my child or dog been hurt by flying glass?). There would probably be a bit of violence thrown into the mix.

In Spain the locals dont really give a hoot about the care of their dogs and may well take a different to view to any animal loving ex pat. See above!

Oh, and, you would in all likelihood spend a day in the police station whilst the mess was cleared up.

Great thoughts, but alas, it could all go horrible wrong. So please have a think before you get too drastic. Consider use of the shop tannoy, or try to tell someone in ‘authority’ before the hammer comes out.

Just a polite thought.



Lucie Found ! Thank you !  


Thank you and all the people who helped to find Lucie.

She is back home.

Best wishes Tina

Recommendation Needed Hearing Aids

I find myself in the position that very soon I will need to consider replacing my

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

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