milanuncios.com is a good place to start, you don't need to speak Spanish. A simple add translated through Google Translator is sufficient. Explain you speak English and not much Spanish.  Toy Poodle is Caniche Toy in Spanish.

I have one and they are great dogs but the allergy claim is not true, contrary to what many believe. I know from first-hand experience. Anyway they are dogs in high demand so it shouldn't be difficult to sell them. Good Luck!

Hi, yes, those fruit flies are annoying but quite simple to get rid of. What they can smell is ripe or very ripe fruit, they can smell it from miles away. With the heat, the fruit ripens very quickly and the riper it is the more it smells. If it is almost starting to rot the flies go mad! It doesn't matter if it is fruit or potatoes or onions, anything organic basically, but the sweetness of fruit is particularly attractive. They arrive, lay their eggs and before you know it you have a swarm and they will live for about 30 days. It is even possible to have eggs on the fruit and veg when you bring them back from the supermarket.

Steps to avoid them - wash all fruit and veg you buy from the supermarket and don't keep them in fruit bowls or baskets. Keep everything in the fridge. Make sure you have no rubbish in the kitchen overnight. That should do the trick. (Once you have them they look for damp, warm areas which may be why you are getting them neat your bath...)

I would say the main reason for panic buying is not the fear of not getting any more food, but the fact that many people do not want to leave their house for at least two weeks....at least here in Spain it was very much the case, now it has all died down. So it is not so much question of panic buying but buying as much as you can so you don't have to go back to the supermarket for some time! It lasts for the first week until everyone has stocked up then everything goes back to normal...

The Spanish government has launched an information website listing the various issues that citizens and businesses will face after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.

The page is part of the larger La Moncloa government website, and its stated goals include providing information to citizens and entrepreneurs about “the changes that the UK’s exit from the EU will have on their interests, as well as about the contingency measures being adopted internally and at the European level.” 

A no-deal Brexit would be “a disaster for everyone,” said Foreign Minister Josep Borrell

The site covers the possibility of a no-deal Brexit too.

Although many practical details are offered, the website avoids getting specific about the still unclear consequences of a no-deal Brexit, which would mean no transition period to adapt.

Information is provided about residency, voting rights, healthcare, education, travel, financial services and more. The site also provides a list of frequently asked questions and answers.

Citizens are assured that they will preserve local voting rights in both Spain and the UK. Madrid and London and working on regulations that will be formally presented on January 21.

Air travel

In the air travel section, one of the questions involves flying to Britain with a Spanish airline “that could lose its license, according to media reports.” This is an indirect reference to former Spanish flag carrier Iberia, which is fighting to prove to EU authorities that it is Spanish – it, along with British Airways, is owned by holding group IAG – in order to preserve its flying rights on the continent after Brexit.

The Spanish executive has also drafted a decree whose definitive text depends on yesterday evening’s vote by British MPs. Sources familiar with this document said that it contains contingency plans to complement the European Commission’s, in the event of a no-deal Brexit. These include financial and logistical measures, such as getting more personnel to deal with an expected surge in residency applications by British citizens if no better solution is found.

Speak for yourself. If you feel you are a guest...

If you live here in Spain, one way or another politics will have an influence on you and you have just as much right to to share an opinion on the topic as a Spanish national. I have been living in Spain for over 20 years and it is very much my business just as much and any Spaniard's business.
