AAR Needs Help please

aar-dogWe are looking for a very special person to help one of our dogs gain confidence.  Rusty is a 2 year old Podenco who was scavenging for scraps of food.  He is currently living in kennels but unfortunately his lack of confidence has led to the others wanting to bully him.  He watches the other dogs playing but sadly doesn’t really know yet how to play himself.  Rusty needs to be in a home without other dogs or only with another dog of a balanced nature.  A short term foster placement for assessment found that he was very well behaved, clean in the house, didn’t bark and wasn’t destructive.  He also slept throughout the night.  He is also good in the car.  All expenses will be covered.

Are you the person who could work with Rusty to help him gain confidence and learn to play.  You will get full support from us and we will put you in touch with a behaviourist for further support if required.  Rusty is such a deserving boy with a very sweet nature.  If you can give Rusty the support he needs to help us find him a forever home or if you would like to talk to us more about Rusty please contact us at  axarquia-rescue @ hotmail.com



Recycle your Christmas Cards through CUDECA

Greetings fellow Digamites and Happy New Year.

Could I remind you that any of the Cudeca shops will be delighted to

accept your used Christmas Cards.  We have a team of volunteers

who will make new cards for sale in our shops.  It’s a win win situation.

You don’t have to bin all your lovely cards and Cudeca makes money

out of them to support our Hospice and Home care teams.

“Please help put Life into days for seriously ill patients.”

Many thanks, Mary Lynch, Volunteer in the Nerja shop.



RHD – commercial vehicle- amended information

We have a RHD Nissan Navarra, which is classed as N1 – a commercial vehicle  – and it has been possible to get this on to Spanish plates.

Andalucia wouldn’t do it, but the neighbouring province of Castilla La Mancha would. So, it is not correct to say it is not possible in the whole of Spain.

Once fully registered the 6-monthly ITVs in Andalucia are now routine – as long as the Ficha Tecnica states that it is a RHD.

I can see a larger lorry being problematic but it is certainly possible with pick-ups.

What’s on-? Mother –Toddler Groups ??

We have just moved to Nerja, having had a fairly mobile existence, (Spain-UK, back and forth) since leaving Indonesia in early 2016. We are concerned that our 27-month-old daughter is not getting sustained opportunities to interact with kids her own age. We also have an 11-week-old baby, and I would like my wife to have the opportunity to meet other mums.

Could you recommend possible meetings and such-like?

Happy to travel (Torrox, Almunecar, Torre del Mar, etc)

Many thanks.
