Dogs do not Necessarily Need Rescuing…..

Once again I am writing to say that, if a dog does not look like it is malnourished.  Leave it alone.

There are hundreds of dogs on a daily basis running around during the day time, they are latch key dogs.

The owners are invariably Spanish.  It is a custom here in Spain to let dogs roam around during the day.  Taking your dog for a walk is not a Spanish custom.

If you think you are rescuing a dog, then that dog becomes your responsibility.  In other words you are the owner.

Once again, leave a stay dog alone, unless it looks like it needs food.  9 times out of 10 they will go safely home.




Services  – Thank You !

I would like to say  a Massive thank you to Natalie Brookes for everything she has done for my mum over the past 10 years since she started being ill. During this length of time they both became very close friends. Natalie has taken care of all her medical problems, arranging and taking her to doctor/hospital appointments, been with her for hours when admitted and discharged from hospital during  several operations over the past 5 years. If an ambulance has been needed urgently  Nat has arranged it and came straight round as well. I knew when I went on holidays that my Mother, Aunt and Uncle were in safe hands. When Mum passed away Natalie organised everything for us and made sure everything ran smoothly on such a very sad day, even to taking care of the music and not sitting with us for the service. These are not the only services Natalie can offer, she can sort any problems to do with utility bills, documentation for the selling of cars and driving licences. MOT, visits to the townhall, legal queries and translating of documents as well as being an interpreter at the police station and hospitals, and loads more I may not be even aware of, you name it she can do it. Natalie puts a lot of time and effort into dealing with certain situations and making numerous phone calls behind the scenes that people are not aware off. Thank you Natalie from Helen and Scott xx

You can contact Natalie on Whatsapp  +34 645 65 46 77  or lakinka@hotmail.co.uk



Services Available- Pain Relief Starts Here!

My name is Alexander. I am the physiotherapist and osteopath of the International Wellness Center Manantia in Torrox Costa.

I would like to introduce a new manual pain therapy method in which I am specialised in.

My personal philosophy is to provide a drug-free and non-surgical treatment to all my patients.

The Fascial Distorsion Model is a new and effective method of treating pain within the musculoskeletal system. Developed by the American doctor for emergency medicine and osteopathy, Steven Typaldos D.O., the method is enjoying ever increasing popularity. Recent scientific researches on the human connective tissues helps us to understand the importance of the fascia.
Up till now, many disorders and illnesses of the musculoskeletal system were difficult to treat and only healed very slowly but with FDM healing is greatly accelerated.

This knowledge has been successfully employed to help many top sportsmen.

Due to FDM the description “chronic pain patient” takes on a completely new meaning. Up until now such patients were seen as being “incurable”.

FDM sees persistent chronic pain in a completely new way.

The treatment includes a specific examination and manual mobilization, soft tissue massage and osteopathic techniques.

For more information about our pain therapy treatment at Manantia or to request an appointment: Call +34 648517092 or 951774819.

Services Needed Solar panels Expert

We have a solar panel which is probably at least 15 years old and

is probably getting to the stage where it needs changing.

We’ve just had the panel ‘flushed’ to clean it from a possible build up of ‘Cal’.

This, though, does not appear to have improved things.

Could anyone recommend a specialist company or plumber, who speaks English, so we can discuss the best way forward.

We do speak some Spanish but given the technicalities involved with fitting a new system, we want to be clear about the best way forward, particularly the

cost implications.

We live in Frigiliana. Replies via digame or direct to our email address.

Thanks. (Frank)
