News and Events, Questions and Answers


Beach House Robbery - Todos Santos artist Gloria Marie V. found her recently furnished beach house broken into last 4th of July weekend. It’s the circular white cliff house you see when driving north from Cabo, just past Elias Calles and before Rancho Nuevo, between km 74 and km 75. Stolen items include four solar panels, new propane fridge, small black stove with beige top, circular dining table (black wrought-iron, white wooden top), queen bed (the extra-thick “Spring Air” mattress sold at Barbara Perkins’ store), blue comforter, many handmade cushions of expensive material (blue, red, gold), sheets, towels, and kitchenware. If you have helpful information, please contact the judicial office in Todos Santos or me directly via email. - Michael Mercer, barkingdogbooks [-at-] yahoo.com, 612-145-0681, Todos Santos

Que Pasa? - I have gotten tired of my desert home even though I am only 10-12 weeks old. Not sure how I got out here anyway. I'm thinking my momma was Shepard or? but If I had to guess, I would grow up to be a of female of medium height and weight. I am very healthy, love to play with people and other dogs and spent the last couple of days learning how to be a watch dog from my foster family. I am fluent in Spanish, English, Italian and French and will do windows. Please consider me as your next loving family member as my foster family already has 3 other dogs, a cat and a bird. Did I tell you I love cats? Bye Bye, Adios, Arrivederci, Au revoir - , carrollemail [-at-] aol.com, 044-612-119-8047, Todos Santos


Brown Male W/ Black Cloth Collar - A very well socialized brown male dog approx 50 lbs with a black cloth collar is roaming around my neighborhood in Pescadero. He sure seems like a wonderful dog and someone's pet. Please give me a call ASAP. I am located at the south end of Pescadero, by the Los Cerritos hills. - Kelly Cline-sniechowski, kelbil2002 [-at-] yahoo.com, 612-157-6166 (cel), Pescadero


I Need A Home - For several months I have survived feeding off construction crew garbage during the week and water from irrigation system. I only travel between an unoccupied lot in the brush to a construction site once a day around 7PM. I'm shy & won't let you approach. I will be a challenge & it will take time to earn my trust. A good meal or two delivered to my hideout would go along ways to that end. I would be your best friend for life. - Paws, southbeachcom2010 [-at-] yahoo.com, 612 118 3423, Pescadero


Pet Boarding At Cabo Kennels (courtesy La Paz Gringos) - (Posted by makaloco, Thursday July 8) I had to travel to the US for two weeks in June, flying from/to Los Cabos (SJD) airport, and boarded my 5 m.o. rescued street pup at nearby Cabo Kennels. It was an excellent choice. The facility is off Hwy. 1 between San José del Cabo and the airport, maybe 10-15 minutes at most from the airport. The owners, Monica and Luis, obviously love animals and are very professional. They check vaccination records carefully to ensure that all the pets are healthy. There are papers to fill out with instructions (for example, if you want your dog to play with other dogs, what to do if he gets sick, does he show any signs of aggressiveness. I was encouraged to bring Bouli's toys, and even though there are dog beds in the "rooms", I took his own bed as well. The dog areas are immaculately clean, and there's a spacious exercise area for play sessions.

When I picked Bouli up after two weeks, he was bathed, healthy, and happy. He'd even put on needed weight, and I'm told that he had a wonderful time playing with new canine friends and lying in the kiddie pools. Cabo Kennels also have facilities for cats. I didn't see those, as we arrived too late for a full tour, but there are photos on their website below. (If you mention Kate and Bouli, we'll get credit toward our next stay; the same applies to you if you board your pet there and recommend it to others.) - , www.cabokennels.com
