Many thanks

My little Yoda died this afternoon, she had a fit and went into shock. I took her to the vet and he put her to sleep. He said that the olive farmers in this region are using new weed killers and a lot of animals have been affected. Just thought that everyone should be aware, I am in the Iznajar area,
