Electric Blanket

I hope this info may help those looking for an electric blanket.Try your local ferreteria,most have a magazine available to browse and take home with you.We found a double size,which is larger than a average double with dual controls for 99 Euros.I realise some may think this expensive however posta...

Re: Castrating dogs

All the rescue centres we know of are always bursting at the seams,only a change in attitude will change the situation and I fear that will take a very long time.I think a special offer at the vets is an excellent idea,where is that? Maybe I can persuade some of the locals,its always worth letting t...

Re: Goldcar horror car hire story

I would also second Helle Hollis,we had a series of car disasters mostly involving paperwork and had to hire a car for a month and the company provided excellent service at a competitive price.

Re: ANY EXCELLENT VETS AROUND

Many years ago we used an excellent vet in Competa, Danish,named Jens.I do not know if still in practice as near retirement age,but well worth a trip to find out.A first class vet with at least thirty years experience,couldn't recommend him enough!

Re: Hot weather

Blimey,it is hot 39c in the shade here,I think that's because its the summer!We have had the coolest summer here for the past seven years to my knowledge,super.It is stinking hot now but you have to pace yourself.It will be winter soon enough and then we will all be freezing, I know which I prefer.

Re: New shop Velez

That's a good idea,especially as many shops close down and move elsewhere constantly it can be hard to keep track.Personally I gave up on clothes here many years ago and use eBay instead.

Re: Finding someone to empty the Pozo Negro

Many Spanish empty it themselves,though they won't tell you that.Installation of a new one can be very costly and might not work much better.I would suggest much stronger words with your visitors.

Shame you won't be living here full time or I would suggest you have a Spanish bordergero dog, fantastic rat killers.Our bordergero has despatched all rats passing through the stable,however the few rats left are now using the metal roof supports which is driving her into a frenzy,maybe I should tea...

Re: Metal thieves

I agree with Gerry connect to electricity until their hands are singed,can't stand thieves,too many of them about in the campo.We also make sure anything of metal is out of sight.

Re: Winter and electric blankets

Personally,I would definitely bring the electric blanket and a good quality duvet,both difficult to find/buy over here,especially duvets,due to smaller sizes and poor quality.Whilst I would bring your thermals and jumpers etc also.Spanish houses can be freezing in the winter.

I have absolutely no idea,like many of Defras daft ideas,would be worth checking the DEFRA site you never know they might have the info you need.I can understand why you are concerned,I was totally unaware also.

Oliveview01 is correct and its causing inevitable problems for people and their dogs,also blooming expensive! I was also unaware until I read it on a website of a rescue centre in Pedrera.I don't think its a case of which vet you use ,mor a case of telling the vet what they have to give and when,as ...
