Taking your Dog to the UK

We have recently re-located to UK and took our elderly, shy and nervous Spanish Water Dog with us.  We chose to fly him over as we considered a 3 day trip with a stranger would be too traumatic.  We chose Thomson Airlines on recommendation from a friend.  They could not have been more helpful, kind and considerate of our dogs needs.  We followed their advice,   We got his crate a month early and slowly introduced him to it making it his ‘bed’ for the final 2 weeks prior to flight, we sprayed his bed with pheromone spray, gave him his favourite toys and an item of clothing my  husband had worn they day before. We also gave Mitch 1 Adaptil calming tablet.  On the day he was calm, and actually seemed interested in what was happening.  The handlers at both ends of the journey were gentle and kind to him and he has shown absolutely no signs of trauma post journey.  We parted with him at 9 am and were re-united at 3 pm so just 6 hours,  The crew on our flight told us that  they were aware that he was on board and he would be fine and would probably sleep for most of the journey.  We are so glad we decided to transport him this way.     Jan

Services Available – Russells British Store Torrox Costa

The proprietor Dee has asked me to pass on the following statement.

“A small update on our situation: we can technically open now but we would have to remove all our fridges and freezers, as last year a new environmental certificate came into action (that takes up to 6 months to complete!) We have been told by our gestor that we do not fall under this category and can carry on business with the freezers and to wait for them to sort everything out with the town hall. It’s a very frustrating situation where there’s nothing we can do but wait. Please bear with us”

Recommendation – Dog-healer Steven Rowle

After my eldest dog died, my 6 year old boxer started to panic when he was left on his own. He missed his partner so much, that he started a Houdini practice and escaped every day from our well fenced garden, just to wander around.

His anxiety made him hurt himself to get out.

Steve came to our house and had just a few sessions with him and calmed him down to start with.

We had already decided to take another dog as companionship, but my boxer’s aggressive behaviour against other dogs made us doubt.

Steven was very confident about getting everything right with my dog so I trusted him to come to the dog park in Velez with my” bulldozer” – first aid kit ready to grab.

What happened there was amazing…. Steven walked him around the park in the mean time treating him and I followed 50 meters behind with open mouth.

My dog played with some of the dogs and ignored others completely, male, female he met all of them and all went great.

Last week we adopted through “Angeles Sin Voz” a wonderful 3 months old Rottweiler mix and nothing makes me happier seeing these 2 running around together.

Many, many thanks Steven for making this happen again.

Bono learned a lot from you, but so did I!!

Guitar Renter ? Email address unknown…

I did e-mail you with pictures the first time you advertised on a different e-mail address last week. I didn’t hear anything from you so thought you were not interested in the accoustic which I offered.

I think maybe my e-mail was filtered to your junk mail?

As yesterday you placed the ad again.
My offer to loan the acoustic still stands. I am in El Morche.
Contact me if you re still interested  at  e-mail

What’s On – Art Exhibition in Frigiliana

Allow me to draw your attention to an exhibition of art at Frigiliana. This is currently happening at the Centro Cultural, “Casa Apero”, Frigiliana until the 18th of March this year.

The Norwegian artist, Torstein Antonsen (74), educated also at the Nansen School of Art, Lillehammer, Norway, presents 32 of his works for perusal and purchase. His first exhibition in Spain.

This artist has a bright and innocent relationship to colour and form, through which shines a mature sense of humour. These factors alone make it a worthwhile trip to Frigiliana.

Prices from Euro 50.0 to 250.0

You may be tempted to hang his painting on your wall, just to bring a smile to your lips as you pass it daily.

Opening hours :

Man. – Fri.10 – 18

Sat.10 – 14, 16-20

Sun.10 – 14

For Sale – Huawei 4G Internet Router 

We are selling a Huawei 4G internet router. We bought it from Amena to have wireless internet in our house, but we finally decided on another provider.

The router can be used with all providers, it is unused and brand new. For sale on Amazon for over 70 euros.

4G is a good solution if you don’t have a landline or you don’t want to have internet through antenna. You just buy a SIM-card from a provider, put in the router and you have internet. The drawback however is that there usually is a maximum of megas you can use on a monthly basis.

We’re in Algarrobo costa but can meet elsewhere.

We are asking 30 euros.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

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”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

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. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
