    Mikkie The 6-week holiday at Vila do Ouro of the stray dog Mikkie is over. Today Mikkie caught the plain to Holland to his new home. Mikkie has to get used to the rain and cold weather, but we have found a good loving family for him. We will miss Mikkie, as well as lots of our guest will do, but now he cannot wake us up with his night time barking. 6 weeks ago, Mikkie turned up in our street, followed some guests and Mikkie made his way into Vila do Ouro. Guests gave him some food and since then he didn't leave our place. Every night we have put him to the street, but the first one who openend the gate, openend it as well for Mickie. Luckely most clients didn't bother his precence. It is a very nice dog. Linda gave him a big hug (picture) just before leaving his holiday accommodation. Today 31C in the shadow. Top of page
