Kelly Needs a Home

k01 k03Hello my name is Kelly. I am a Bodeguero cross. I am one year old and I was rescued from a track where I was left by my previous owners. I waited for a long time but they never came back for me.  Presently I am being fostered along with five other dogs. There isn’t much room for me so my fosters would like me to go to a permanent home with someone else. I get on very well with my new friends but I am a little unsure about the cats so ideally I would prefer to live only with dogs. I love my walks and lots of cuddles. Please give me a chance to prove how much I can enhance your life.

Please call Julia 629556210 or email jandtonic @ gmail.com.  thank you.

Buying Spree Offer :

I am an American who just bought a home in La Herradura.

I’ve got lots of decorating to do so I’m hoping to interest 3 women to join me on a trip to Morocco.

My thought is that if 4 of us share the expenses, it will be fun and reasonably priced.

I would expect we could leave a car in Gibraltar and take the ferry over.

Once there, we’d need to hire a driver who can take us to great spots for good quality home furnishings. (obviously we’d research before we go and have interesting places lined up to view)

If anyone knows of unique places, I would so appreciate it if you’d share your valuable knowledge with me. I’m thinking the first or second week of December for 3-5 days, depending upon the needs of the group.

Sharing hotel accommodations would keep costs low, either 2 to a room or a suite for 4. If I’ve managed to peak your interest, please get in touch with me so we can plan this wonderful adventure.

janekirkspain @ gmail.com.

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