Puppy Found

pup02 ouo01

I found this puppy. She was wondering the streets in Valle Niza.

I’m guessing she might be around 3 to 4 months old.

I can’t keep her and need to find a shelter or an adoptive home for her.

Could you possibly to help me?

Thank you

Processionary Caterpillars – here we go again !

If you own a pet in Spain, dog or cat, you will know of the Processionary caterpillars that come down from those white nests in the  pine trees any time now and can kill your precious pet.

For what it is worth, here is my method of dealing with the ones on my land.

I have a 5.5 meter pruning pole – cord attached and if you add my 2 meters I can reach 7 – 8 meters.  Out I go with this and a plastic bag, neatly snipping off the nests.

Back at the house they go into an old black plastic builders bucket, quick poke through the white cotton wool nest with a stick and then my secret weapon is the wonderful Domestos Bleach (no connection with the company) that I only see in Supersol.  It is very strong.  Add water to taste and leave to soak.

They are all dead in seconds.  There can be 300-400 in a nest the size of a small loaf.

In the early days I tried a gas torch on a pole – took ages and expensive, and yes I know – the fire risk.

Then I tried shooting at the nests but one is never sure where they end up.

I also tried cutting with the pruner and burning but they are very hardy and I found some survived the bonfire by burrowing beneath the ashes.

No doubt we will hear more on this perennial subject – at least it is cheaper than big game hunting in Africa.

Services Available New Physiotherapy and Osteopathy Clinic in Torrox Costa!

My name is Alexander and I am a Physiotherapist who trained in Germany  and qualified in 2008. I came to Spain in 2014. I have worked in various private clinics, hospitals and hotels throughout my career. I completed my BSc Osteopathy from NUMSS, Madrid  in 2015.

Over the years I attended many courses like Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Neuromuscular Therapy, Pain Therapy, Sports Physiotherapy, Craniosacral Therapy, Naturopathy, Bobath Concept. Developing my skills to enable myself to take a well rounded and hands on approach to all conditions. I can treat musculoskeletal conditions including sports injuries, orthopaedic surgery and spinal problems. I have a particular interest in pain management. Beside this I am trained in Neurological Physiotherapy, which is emphasized in the adequate treatment of patients with neurological disorders e.g. after a stroke, parkinson, multiple sclerosis and more.

My qualification as an Manual Osteopath has been very complementary along side my other physiotherapy skills in the management of pain through injury with all of my patients.

I am multi-lingual and able to give treatments in German, English and Spanish.

Recommendation – Gardener

After a recommendation on Digame for a gardener we booked Samuel to come and sort out our campo land. He is brilliant, hardworking and very knowledgeable about the plants. Our garden and land has never looked so good with beautiful shaped trees and everywhere so tidy in such a short time.

We highly recommend him-

Recommendation – Sysmartin

Recently we have had 3 projects undertaken by Sysmartin.

1) Erection of white balustrade to our terrace and repair/replace where necessary ranch style boundary fencing.

2) Complete external redecoration of house including rejas and doors.

3) Retaining wall built to stabilise erosion on drive, caused by rain.

All work professionally executed to a very high standard. They cleaned and tidied up after completion of each job. The prices were reasonable. David, who is in charge, speaks Spanish, his wife Jenny speaks English, Spanish and German.

We have purchased our winter logs from them for several years and find the quality excellent.

They are situated just off the A7206 Competa to Sayalonga road at the Competa end.

An orange and green sign can be seen on the left, coming from Competa,
