Vicious dog outside Barxa do Lor — describe your experience

I have been in touch with Aida Menéndez, president of the Monforte Invierno Association, and one of the people who was always there working to get the Invierno recognition and Xunta investment. Anyway.... I described to her the situation of the dog many of us have seen lunging towards us in the little hamlet right on the way down to Barxa do Lor. I remember that the bridge is visible at the point where the house is, but any more details on location would help. She told me that she has contacted the officials in Quiroga (this hamlet is located in the municipal boundaries of Quiroga), but thought that if we sent some of our own letteres describing our experience, it would have a greater impact.

So, here’s what I propose — if you can write your own letter in Spanish, send it to me via PM (addressed to Sr. Alcalde and signed with your name). If you want to write your own letter in English, send it to me in PM, and I will translate it into Spanish and send it on. If you don’t want to write a letter, but would like to leave a few comments on this thread, I will incorporate them into my letter in Spanish. I will send them all to Aida and she will forward them on.

Here is a picture of the long-serving mayor, next to a Camino mojón, so I think we can take it for granted that he wants the camino to flourish.

I know we have had some big debates by those who believe that pilgrims shouldn’t have the power to force owners to control dogs that are running loose, but I think that this issue is one that all of us can get behind. This dog is chained up and vicious and gets awfully close to people passing by.

Thanks for your help.
