I am currently living in France with my husband and 2 friendly dogs. We have been here fulltime since 2014. We are looking to travel to Spain for the winter months (October '16 - March '17) We are early retired professional's in our 50's and are responsible home owners and pet owners. My husband and I have both had long term careers within the Fire Service and also enjoyed a small business running dog sitting in our own home. We are looking for some winter sun with our two very sociable dogs. We have a large, new caravan which we could tow to Spain, but do not necessarily want to stay on a camping site. Ideally, we would love more of a farm, field set up, with just some electricity and a field for the dogs to run around freely, and are willing to pay to stay there.Having said that, we would also be available to house sit for someone if they needed help dog sitting and bring our dogs too (unpaid) sometime during the above time period. We are keen gardeners and odd jobbers! My parents still travel to La Herradura near Nerja for 6 months during the Winter months in a motor home,  it would be lovely to spend some time near or around the same area as them. I would really hope that someone reading this could help, or point us in a direction to any of the above options. We could provide character references if required. Many thanks for your time. Regards Mandy and Alan Brown.. and Maddy and Cooper the dogs

Hello All, Many people may not be aware of the terrible fate of some of Spain's hunting dogs.  They may be killed heartlessly at the end of the hunting season, sometimes by the slow and agonising method of 'piano-playing' - the dog is hanged by the neck but can just reach the ground.  The piano-playing refers to the click of its toes on the ground as it desperately scrabbles around until it tires and succumbs.  This can take a long time.  Other dogs are insufficiently fed, kennelled and exercised. A Spaniard has started a petition to present to the Spanish government to bring about some long overdue legislation to protect these animals.  Please sign the petition and pass it on to all your friends, Spanish and English, so that the total of 500,000 required signatures can be reached (see link below, you may need to copy and paste into your browser). http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/293/313/901/ Thank you so much.

We have a lot of oxalis (the yellow flowered plant) growing around the place, although I let it grow in some spots, I want to weed others - anyway, what I wanted to ask, is can I give the leafs to my chickens to eat?
