Hello Everyone, I have been in Spain for a couple of months on a house-sitting assignment and have been really saddened to see a number of presumably abandoned dogs wandering about, some in a terrible state. Does anyone have any suggestion as to what to do in this circumstance? As I am house-sitting I am not in a position to take dogs in unfortunately. On a broader level than the plight of individual dogs, I have found a website: www.esdaw.eu which looks at this problem in depth and is aiming to do something about it. The site is well worth a good read to understand the true extent of the problem across Europe. It also has an action section, with petitons to sign. In addition there is a link to MEPs. I wrote to every Spanish MEP yesterday by e-mail. There are 53 of them and it only took a couple of hours. Several have replied already and I hope and believe that if we bring this matter to their attention in numbers, we will bring about change. Please pass this on to anyone who you think may wish to participate. 'Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.' (Alfred A. Montapert) Only the actions of individuals can bring about change. Thank you.

Saddened to read this morning about the death of a football fan in clashed between Atletico and Depor fans last night outside of the Vicente Calderon stadium. Appartently he ended up in the Manzanares and suffered hyperthermia and a heart attack. Quite a number of people were also hurt including police officers. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come as I always found football matches here in Spain to be quite a safe place for children and families in the past.
