Lost Dog is not Lost      I did try to send a text to Mette and Arne who put the photo of the dog in Digame yesterday but I’m not sure it went OK. This is the second time that this dog has been in Digame but he is not lost, He belongs to a Spanish neighbour and it has a tendency to roam the campo whilst it is out of its compound. He tries to lock it into his stable or greenhouse, but it escapes. If a dog is fed by someone else he will no doubt want to keep returning to them so we do not encourage or feed any loose dog we see as it probably does belong to someone. Barbara



A very friendly, chilled, relaxed, easy, cuddly, happy cat that is looking for a new home. She is neutered. We are returning to the UK due to ill health and can no longer look after her. She comes with cat basket and food, can deliver.  Please call 0034 685 229008


Home needed for a special little podenco puppy 

‘Windy’ blew into my garden back in March this year as a tiny 4 week old puppy and has been the joy of my life. Loyal, fun loving and good company. Sadly, due to recent poor health I must find a new home for him.  He is fully inoculated, house trained, has a passport and has been neutered.  He is wonderful with children, currently shares my home with five cats and is very proficient with the cat flap although is happy to be in the house during the day and is shut in at night, either sleeping on the sofa or on my bed!  Please can someone offer my special little boy a new home, which he deserves?  Thank you.    Please contact Lisa Gordon on 619 31 78 60 or  email lisagordon65 @ hotmail.com
