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.

Hi, do you have a space you are doing nothing with and want to let me use? I could exchange teaching some of my creaative skills in return, or pay a small rent. The space needs to be dry, have natural light, electricity and water and be located somewhere within easy reach of Manilva/ or West side of Estepona. I am a glass artist so would want to use my small kiln, also I am painter, photographer and jewellery maker.

Hi all, I'm still looking for a reliable method to receive packages in a timely manner. I noticed an advert here for something called Spain Box. Any experience with this? Would it make any difference if I rented a mail box in a different country then found a service to bring my mail into Spain? My daughter is not well and needs certain supplements that I order from the US. Also, I like to order organic clothes and toys from around the UK. Surely, there's got to be a solution, right? Hopeful!

I am thinking of relocating from Vancovuer Canada to Spain and would appreciate any one giving me first hand information on whether or not Spain is a good choice.  I have a fourteen year old daughter who is in her first year of senior school.  So information on Educaton would be great along with suggestions of desirabe areas to live. My budget is modest and I would be looking to start or work as a Montessori Teacher or hospitlaity/real estate. Any information is much appreciated.   Thank you.   Charlie

Dear Anglo info members I am writing from a TV company based in London, and we are currently developing a new documentary idea for a major UK broadcaster, about a hotel on the Costa del Sol, with a British owner. The hotel would ideally be fairly large, to give us a range of character stories and facilities that we could feature in a documentary series. I would be incredibly grateful if any British hoteliers could assist me by sending over your contact details for an initial discussion.  I can be reached at gemma.singleton@dsp.tv With kind regards Gemma Singleton

I am a 65 year old lady moving from south west France to Calahonda in early April with my little dog. I own a studio apartment in Calahonda but as it is on the 2nd floor it is not really the best place for my dog. I have been trying without luck to find a ground floor apartment with a private garden, (preferably in lower Calahonda/ Calypso area)  to rent for around 3 months April - July, or until I decide whether to buy larger apartment and  live permanently in Calahonda or return to the UK. Can anyone help please? Maz

Hi. In France we have a site called www.leboncoin.fr where individuals and professionals can place ads for anything and everything including cars, houses etc. Is there a similar site for Spain. Or is there a site that covers most of the estate agents. Have looked at kyero.com but would like to see others. Not only looking for English Estate Agents. Any help much appreciated
