"Tapa". Free food or the scruffiest dog in Spain?

We have a small spanish terrier that my neighbour, Antonio, was going to get rid of. I’ve has him for 2 years now. He’s a fiesty little devil and is typically noisy. We call him “Tapa”, as he is just a bite sized piece for my other dog, Bruno, who towers over him, rather like the Matterhorn dwarfs Zermatt.

We got our own back on Tapa for a few sleepless nights yesterday. We set him adrift in the swimming pool on a lilo. That shut him up, especially when he overturned it and had to swim to safety. As you can see from the photos he is not amused by our little prank!

Do you think he just may be the scruffiest dog in Spain?
