Re: The rain in Spain

Re: Unbelievable!

Diaphonus in this instance will mean "Trellis Like". In Spain you see many ingenious ways of achieving this; the use of roofing tiles, water pipes and most commonly Slip bricks on end forming triangles trapped between horizontal rows to give stability. It is quite attractive, cast your eye...

Re: DOG MIXER BISCUITS

The Spanish don'r seem to use mixer biscs like we do in the UK. We used puppy mini biscs when we needed them and they were very well received and ours did well on them! We later went onto total dry food which also went well ( with a bit of gravy!).

As a word of caution; we brought ours down with us from Blighty 17 years ago. I was in the Hardware business in the UK and this one was top of the range. Basically wood and Andalucian sun don't go well together. We feed ours with teak oil several times a year and have now adopted a routine of having...
