...LOL!

Once you've seen the puppy!... it's now a classic and I've had some funny convesations with loads of people about it now (some who lived there for years too). It frustrates me to bits when they give you a dumb look and you end up drawing on bits of paper etc.

so did you spot it first Debz?... celebrity status!

Given th epalm tree and wee stream, I thing it's just a crazy piece of open air art by the landowner... never seen anything quite like it...my wife goes for a walk by it every morning when we're there ...

I must share this with you - my friend has just popped in for a coffee while I was reading these posts - she asked me what I was doing and I told her I was catching up with whats what in PP where we have our villa. I asked if she wanted to have a quick look. I have got to say her face was a picture and she just said WHAT!!!!! - Having never looked at the site before and only reading this thread, I think she thought it was the place of wayward brains lol.
No offence to anyone - just very funny thread to someone not in the know!
We had a good laugh when I explained.

I thought it was a very strange place for the statues to be and wondered whether the landowner was a pig farmer. I've seen similar though as live 10 miles from Milton Keynes famous for it's concrete cows!!


I was certainly the first to mention the puppy on this forum...and some people mocked (Bella!!) I've pointed him out to quite a few locals who, as you say, give you a bit of a funny look....and then the euro drops and they are all amazed they haven't seen him before !

YAY I'm a celeb

Careful Debz - you will have lots of PMs asking for your autograph lol

I hadn't noticed until Debz pointed out - So can I be a celeb by association please?

Sitting outside a little Tapas bar in the old town on market day, a chap went by, pushing a baby buggy with two green Iguanas sitting on the sun canopy, wearing little collars and leads!

Well I think she ordered the suckling pig in one of the local restaurants and before the chef could get it in the oven it escaped and she's had it as a pet ever since!

Sorry Eleanor,
It was meant to be a joke. My wife's a veggie too and I don't think she'd like that one either.

We also saw the lady walking the pig along the pinewalk when we there last week (i did think at first I had had too much sun or 1 gin too many )...we caught up with her later in the evening when we stopped at the Taj for a drink...my friend has a fab photo of the pig fast asleep on the pavement...

We saw this too at the Illa D'or Hotel. I heard someone say "Didnt know pig was on the menu". Lol.

The fireworks on Sunday night were just spectacular.
