We Have Found a Lost Dog 

He has a necklace in Andalucian colors, but no chip.   Contact:  Mette and Arne Fjeldberg, tlf. 0034 640 219 615


We Have Found a Lost Dog ?  We’ve found a lovely little dog, in our bed, who has managed to jump up, get through the wreckers of our bedroom, come in and settle in!!  She has spent three of the past five nights with us and seems to be making a habit of it.  She is small, has a longish snout, and is white with large, reddish-brown spots, ears and short tail. She has a black collar and two thin metal plates with numbers engraved on them.  We cannot keep the dog, although she’s as friendly as can be, so we are hoping that someone is looking for her.Any suggestions by a shelter or somebody in the know would be welcome as we don’t know exactly know what to do if she keeps coming back. We live just outside and above Competa on the road which joins the cafe Venta de Palma and the petrol station, not far from the pet shop.  Contact us on 634351754 or write to: puchkauzon1@gmail.com. Thanks in advance, Paul


Animal Cruelty Law – update  Just to add to the info given about animal protection law on the 16th, it was approved in Andalucía in 2003 so since then mutilations on pets have been illegal here. The new law is for Spain as a whole.   Gunila, Naturvets Competa  (Many thanks to Gunila)


Bonfires – Still Illegal Throughout Andalucia  For those who have not read the news –  The Junta de Andalucia has continued the ban on bonfires throughout Andalucia until at least October 31st.  They will review again nearer the time.    Mave – Competa
