Tail dog show: Thank you to the organisers of the Tail Dog Show held on Sunday on Penoncillo Beach. . I have been every year since coming to Torrox and it gets better every year. It is just thoroughly good natured fun with lots of people enjoying their dogs and the many stalls of interest. I hope it did well for you this year, it certainly deserves to do so. Well done. Keep up the good work. Anthea. Torrox Pueblo Email antheawater1@gmail.com

Car Valet: I would also like to recommend Warren James who valeted our extremely hairy car, before the arrival of 2 friends, one of whom has pet allergies. He definitely went the extra mile, shampooing the upholstery 3 times and taking an extra hour to do so, for no extra charge. Our friends have now been and gone. Three days of being ferried around including from Malaga to Competa and back, without a single sneeze or watery eye. A job really well done, Warren! Many thanks, Gwen, Competa. gjp 1949 at Hotmail dot com

Driving in Spain: I subscribe to a useful Driving in Spain newsletter, at www N332.es. There are lots of useful tips about Spanish rules and regulations, but lately, an article about obtaining an ECO sticker to show your car will comply with emission rules when driving into large cities. If you do not have the sticker, you may have to pay an entry fee.
