Thank You ! Wonderful Christmas Tale !

Just to thank you for putting my request on Digamextra regarding items stolen from my apartment last week

A man contacted me to say he found  purses on the beach near where I live but no money and only an expired  REPS Club card

He was flying back to UK that day and as there was no address or money in the purse he left it on the beach

Imagine how pleased I was when I went to el Pino for Christmas lunch to be presented with 2 purses with my residencia in and a key ring with my Mum’s photo on it.

She passed away 2 years ago and it was a joy to see her smiling face again on Christmas Day.

Thank you whoever you are for taking the time and effort and taking them to el Pino Restaurant and thank you too to Paul, PJ and other members of the staff there for keeping them for me and also a fantastic Christmas Day Lunch

There are plenty of good people out there always wanting to help

Regards Angela

Merry Christmas to Clients old, new and those we have not met yet.

One of Steven Rowles most recent cases was with a dog called Luca.

Luca was in a never ending cycle of trauma and distress, attacking his rear end, at anytime of the day or night, causing his owners and their other dogs, an immense amount of anxiety and worry. Lucas previous history was very unfortunate. A previous irresponsible owner and a stressful Campo life.

He was found lying in the road having been run over. His rear end crushed, he spent three months in the Vets to recover. But Luca began to exhibit this strange, baffling behaviour of attacking his rear. After many, many more visits, X-ray’s, tablets and subsequent costs, they diagnosed a cracked vertebrae.

An MRI Scan was the next stage.
On the surface Luca presented symptoms of pain in his behind.

Steven Rowle very quickly discovered that pain was not the issue.

Luca was actually living in fear.  Everything that had happened to Luca had come from behind.

Fear of cars and the accident, fear of people, fear of other attacking dogs and the stressful life that a wild campo life brings. His fear was all behind him.

Luca never ate in peace or chewed a bone without the need to defend himself, so much so that the growling, snarling and snapping at his behind would present itself when there was nothing or no one around, even during sleep.

Luca would often wake up at night and start the whole cycle all over again. A head cone originally worn after his surgery had to continue for his own protection at night.

After under going Steven Rowles Healing and Desensitising techniques, Luca is now a much happier dog. The fear from behind has gone. Attacking his rear has reduced to rare incidents and only then presents itself as a brief low growl.

Bones are no longer anything to fear but to be enjoyed.

His demeanor is now calm and the family unit, both humans and dogs, are now at peace.

Steven does not offer overnight cures but with a little time, patience, love and his expertise, anything is possible.
Steven Rowle

Recommendation needed –English Car Mechanic

I drove down with my UK reg car from England to Canillas de Albaida, and my dear car didn’t skip a beat.  But a few days after arriving, I experienced a racing engine (on the autovía) which wouldn’t turn off, accompanied by enough white smoke from the exhaust to bring the autovía to a standstill….pretty frightening.  It’s a diesel, and I’m now aware of the various problems which can cause this, but none the wiser as to the damage after almost a week at my local mechanic.

Can anyone recommend an English mechanic who could tell me more than “your engine needs to be repaired”?  I want an engine compression test done, and to know if it’s the turbo, fuel-injection, head gasket, etc. which failed/needs replacing.  I’m unprepared to either write off my 15 year old car, or spend EUR 1,000 on a new (secondhand) engine on the basis of no information!

Replies to Digaméxtra please as I couldn’t find any recommended mechanics when I searched the site – only questions!

Many thanks, Nikki

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

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

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