Lost-Found-Lost Dog Story    

ld01 ld-02

The night before last this dog wandered onto our property, heart pounding, and very hungry. We have been feeding her up. She is extremely affectionate and playful. The photos do not do her justice as she is extremely pretty. She is wearing a red plastic collar with little metal bones around. Her approximate weight is 50 kilos and with a bath her white hair would be snow white. She takes doggie treats very gently from my hand. She has no tics or fleas.

Could the owner or anyone who recognizes her please contact me at geraldine14 @ gmail.com or alternatively text or phone me on my Irish mobile which is 00353879186521.

Someone must be missing a beautiful docile pet. Thank you.

When we came home this evening, Saturday at 11.30 approx this beautiful dog was not here.

It is 4.00 AM and I am waiting on her return but sadly no show yet I need to know her owner has her back and that she is safe. If anyone has spotted her in the Algarobbo or surrounding area please, please let me know..

Thank you all those people who care



Services – Why pay for an interpreter at Carlos Haya Hospital or any other Spanish hospital?

There should be in every Spanish hospital notices indicating your rights in many languages.

Read the notices.

The first item on the list states that they have a duty (mostly from doctors) to tell you anything in your own native comprehensible language via an interpreter if needs be which must be free of charge, as the U.K. does this under European law.

Spanish hospitals will try and get round this by charging you and many are none the wiser hence saving the Spanish health service money.

Services Available – Amplitex 

amplitexThe company called Aplitex is still very much in business, I called them a couple of days ago to come again this year to spray my trees, but they have moved and I called them on a mobile number 625 039 971.  This is the number for Rafael and he speaks English.   I would recommend them for anyone who has trees which are too big or difficult to reach yourself.  They will come and give a quote first so no surprises.  About now is the time to spray before the nests start.   If your trees are small enough to spray yourself the product in the photo can be bought in Viveros Amberes Torrox  Costa garden centre (no doubt in others too).  This is the same product used by Aplitex and is  very effective.  Safe for pets etc.

Recommendation –Re-Upholstery

Just a quick note to say that we recently had six steel-framed dining chairs re-upholstered by Stan Anderson.  They had preciously been rattan, but our cats had destroyed them all!  Stan visited us, gave us a written quote and returned them completely refurbished after showing us a comprehensive choice of material.

We are delighted with the work…he is plainly a consumate professional and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

You can contact him on 690 155 652

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this format…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.
