Rudy, Spanish Omelettes, and García Lorca

During his recent wanderings in the Sierra Nevada region of Spain, Dachshund Daddy met Rudy, who was hanging out with his grandpa at Bar Restaurante Galvez in the mountain town of Lanjarón.

Rudy takes good care of his grandpa, who rescued him several years back.

Every time another dog walks by Bar Galvez, Rudy darts outside to ensure that his pee spots are accounted for.

Bar Restaurante Galvez makes great Spanish omelettes, Rudy reminds us. But be sure to ask for a tortilla de patatas, as they're called in Spain.

Rudy is also a big poetry fan, and reminds us that his home town of Lanjarón has many fountains with quotes from Federico García Lorca, Spain's greatest gift to 20th century poetry.

Struggling under the weight of the shade
a spring was singing: 
Calm and gloomy,
I heard the songs of the water.

F. García Lorca 

Rudy is not 100% positive about DD's translation; can anyone help?


  1. Great to meet Rudy, what a splendid chap he is. But sorry, can't help with the translation. Spanish limited to asking for 'two beers please'.
    Cheers, Gail.

  2. Can't help with the translation. Rudy is a great guy. I like how he dashes out to check his pee spots.

  3. Your new furend Rudy is very handsome! I bet he got a good taste of those eggs.

    The fountain is beautiful. We have no idea what it says but we're enjoying just looking at it.

  4. What a cool dude Rudy is - keepin an eye on both the omelettes *and* the pee-mail. I hope he gets a pay rise soon! *Waggy tail*

  5. Rudy is definitely a dashing little dog! It's important to guard the pee-spots!

  6. Oh great. Now I want an omelette.
