Very Temporary Puppy Foster Care Needed


We rescued a very sweet puppy about 9 weeks old – named TACHO – and are working to get him re-homed.

Unfortunately, he needs to be separated from other dogs until he gets his second vaccinations.

It is hard on him and on us as we have several other dogs.

Would you be willing to provide care for him for only 13 days…from this Thursday – Nov. 13 until the 25th when he’ll be able to mix with other dogs?

Get a puppy fix without any obligation!

We will supply the puppy chow and he’s using newspaper pretty consistently to do his business. Contact 667 299 017 if you can help.



Changes for Airport Car Hire ?

Have just heard that two people – who had previously taken out insurance to cover any excess and avoid paying over the top fees at the Car Hire Centres at Malaga Airport – were told last week, that the companies based there are no longer accepting any other excess insurance, but their own.

This seems to be a new development and is very worrying.

What’s On – Wood Oven Cookery Workshop

Taking the mystery out of wood oven cooking! This practical workshop, hosted at Casa Montes Negros farm, shows all the basic steps of how to light a wood oven, what wood to use and how to achieve the perfect temperature for both baking and slow cooking. Many wood ovens are still in existence in traditional Spanish country houses and there are smaller ovens available to buy as this ancient art of cooking is becoming fashionable again.

Wood oven baking is not just for making that perfect crispy pizza! Through a delicious menu, we explore the many recipes that can be made once you have fired up the wood oven. All the recipes can be adapted for use in a regular oven too, and the workshop is suitable for both novices looking for some basic recipes and experienced cooks looking for new ideas or just a great day out with like minded foodies!

Join us on Wednesday 19th October or Wednesday 9th November. We start at 10.30 and finish between 3.30 and 4.The workshop costs 35 euros, and includes all the ingredients, lunch after all the hard work and a folder of the recipes to take away.

We meet in El Cruce car park, Trapiche at 10.00 a.m. From there we take our own cars up to the farm, a further 10 minutes drive away. For those who prefer not to drive, you can book a lift to the meeting point and back for an extra 3 euros per person.

To book your place contact Rachael on rachael @ casamontesnegros or ring/Whatsapp on 655 987 105 with your name and a mobile contact number. To secure your booking we do ask for a 10 euro deposit.

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

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