The Dog Academy now have training sessions on Sunday mornings from 10am to midday in the Velez Malaga/lake la Vinuela area (10 mins from the Eroski roundabout). These classes are not only brilliant for your dog's obedience training but also for the dogs to socialise with a variety of other dogs, all sizes and breeds. Wendy also runs agility classes on Monday evenings from 7pm. My dog has improved so much after just 3 classes. If you are interested call Wendy on 622 257 817
Moving to Fuengirola and need home for my 4 yr old border collie possible for 10 months. I want to continue to walk my dog. This would lessen the burden to her foster family. Border Collies need a lot of exercise. I will also paid for her food and other expenses. This might be a good situation for a family whos kids want a dog, but the parents worry the kids will not live up to the responsibility. Maybe a single or family that like dogs ,but cant commit because they are not home all day. I am able to exercise her daily for approx 2 hours. She is a beautiful, lovable exceptional pet. There are many people at home that will take her, but I fear separation anxiety. She has been left before and was fine, but 10 months is too long. If anyone can help, knows someone who might or has advice please sent me a message.
Hi For tthe last 2 years I have been buying new Scaliboor collars for my two dogsevery 5 months but they are €24 each at the vet and pet shop. I saw them on Amazon for €9.95!! Anyone know if they are the same strength as my main priority is to protect my pooches but I could do with saving a bit of money too!
I just spotted new DEFFRA rules from 2012 for taking your pet into the UK. Not sure I understand what has changed but here they are in case anyone planning a trip back to the UK with their pet. Read here: http://www.defra.gov.uk/publications/files/pb13582-bringing-pets-to-uk-111101.pdf
If you are a cat lover and one who is concerned about the many strays on the Costa, our U.K. based charity provide aid and neutering for several groups of strays in Torremolinos. We have several dedicated helpers living in the area but urgently need any cat lover who could spare even half an hour once or twice a week to help provide the aid (which we are currently only able to do alternate days or sometimes only three times weekly for the cats). All food costs are provided by ourselves. We are hoping someone out there would like to join our efforts and would love to hear from them. If you could help us with our groups we would gladly consider helping with any projects you have for the cats.

I saw a lovely bird the other day and was interested to see if anyone can ID it for me. It made a kind of clicking or ticking noise and had a dark grey/black body, with red on its tail visible when it was in flight. A little larger than a sparrow, with a finer beak and sleeker shape.
