She is four months old and has an incredibly playful personality. we are going to keep her healthy and get all the necessary shots to travel to the states or stay here. Girdie needs a good home. Please give us a ring to stop by and see this cute girl!! my Mexico # is 612-133-5531 - Terri Mcintosh, terrimc56 [-at-], 707-320-2661

Sweetest Puppy Anywhere Needs Home! - A few days ago an adorable little puppy started hanging out outside our rented casita. She is clearly homeless, and yet is one of the coolest dogs I have ever met. She has big brown eyes, and a nice golden brown coat with black trim. She is gentle, affectionate, playful, and also very mellow - not hyper. Elegant proportions. A fast learner, (she already knows sit and stay, and is great with my four year old daughter.) I am so impressed with her, I would bring her home to NYC myself, except we already have one dog in a small apartment. I've already taken her to the vet -- she is five months old, 8 kilos, has been immunized and is generally healthy. I've arranged for her to be spayed next week -- so, if you have been considering adopting a dog, and would like to bring a sweet little soul into your life -- she is ready to go!! (We've been calling her HoneyPenny.) Please e-mail or call, I can't keep her here for long. THANK YOU! - Ann Pibal, annpibal [-at-], 6121441656 or 6121441672, Todos Santos

Lost Dog - Please help us find our dog! There was an accident on Sunday, January 3rd around 2 pm at KM 224 1/2 on highway 1, 55 km north of the Bahia Los Angeles turn off at Punta Prieta. Our dog was inside the van that rolled and when he got out he ran off into the desert and we were unable to find him after searching hours and days.
His name is "Pickle". He is a tan lab/great dane mix. He is very Friendly, but I'm sure very scared. He was wearing a collar with a name tag that had our numbers on it; both U.S. and Mexico. He was last seen by a witness, running west into the desert at km 224 1/2.

The reward is currently $300 usd, but I am willing to do what it takes to get my sweet boy back.
If anyone has seen him or knows of anything, please let me know.

Employment Wanted/Available

Looking For A Job In San Jose Del Cabo?? - We are launching a new self storage facility in the beautiful resort area of San José del Cabo, Mexico. Come join our growing company if you are bilingual (English and Spanish) and fit one of these descriptions!
(1) A couple to live at the facility in San José and manage the property. What works well is where the wife spends more time in the office, greeting people and helping them rent, tracking inventory and general admin. She should have customer service skills and a bit of a sales talent, along with basic computer skills for reporting and learning software. The husband usually has some handyman skills to fix minor repairs and keep the place looking nice, as well as being in the office, too. It's important that you can both work well together in such close proximity day after day. Free rent and utilities as part of the salary.
(2) A sales person who can act as a relief manager. You do not have to live on site, but must have a car. You would come in a couple days a week and maybe a night or two to give the couple some time off. You would also be a sales person promoting our facility in town. We pay a base salary and great commission. Does this fit you? If you are up for this adventure, email ileana [-at-] with a resume and cover letter explaining why you would like this job and your ability to come to San José del Cabo. - Lleana Valdez V., ileana [-at-], ileana [-at-], 6241001183
