There are two lovely dogs at Footsteps Eco-Lodge in the Gambia, Seven and Yoga, with both being rescue animals. Seven was the first and actually belongs to owners David and Linda. Both dogs are affectionate and love to accompany visitors down to the beach where they enjoy a good swim.
Biggest dog I have seen on the Balcón de Europa for a while. Last ones were an Irish Wolfhound and a really huge Great Dane.
A few moggies down by the non-existent river, including a group of kittens in one of the small farms/orchards although they were in deep shade so no photos of them this time.
I like the way the shadow of the tree almost appears to be an extension of the pattern on the cat’s back. It has lovely eyes, too.
After a few minutes chasing something amongst the rocks on the riverbed – probably a small lizard or something – it was obviously time for a rest in the sun.
The Balcón cats were also having a very leisurely day, generally snoozing. This one looks decidedly lethargic and almost ready to curl up and catch a few winks, and that’s exactly what it did a few moments later.
I always have time for the moggies as I wander around. These two were down by the riverbed.
This poodle was having a great time chasing his favourite slipper on the Balcón de Europa. Most dogs, when another approaches or passes, age in the usual sniffing process, try to initiate ‘play’ or, occasionally, begin barking. This one either ignored them or, in the case of a small but hefty boxer, gave it a wide berth.
Rather a nice, compact little pooch out for a stroll.
Came upon this rather nice bundle of fur in Benalmádena on Sunday. For quite a large cat, one of the quietest ‘miaows’ I’ve ever heard.
