On Sunday we were pleased to have Ton and Frank from Holland stay with us for the night on their way south to Almeria.

The dog had come from a rescue association, and had lived with the girls for about six months, but was still very scared of strangers, especially men! However, he realised that he was in a safe environment and was in no danger, and soon got to know our own [...]
