Another week flown by. Jessie went to her home in Belgium on Friday. A good result considering her poor state and temprement when we got her. She now looks good and much calmer and manageable. She sat in her cage for the journey and I am sure she was saying 'thank you' to us, especially Jean who along with Dave spent a lot of time with her. Makes it all worthwhile. Didnt think that this morning when we were up and away to the car boot at Salinas to raise the princely sum of 35e. Really not worth it so we are going to give a lot of the clothes, shoes etc that are not up to shop standard to the Lorca appeal and some to be sent off to India etc. We will continue to do this so anyone donating can be sure the items will be appreciated somewhere. Picked up a lovely black Spanial the other day but no chip so looking for home. As a result of many suggestions we are scrapping the monthly prize draw membership scheme and replacing it with a one off yearly fee of 20e to be a member of HOVAR. Please spread the word as more members mean more sway with the council and of course a good income for us.
