"Good Dog" Needs Ride Home to Rosarito From Guerrero Negro - Hola, It is a long story on how our dog (Einstein, he was named that from the shelter/rescue group) is still in Guerrero Negro after our car broke down 60 miles north of there almost four weeks ago. Actually, the story has a way in which the 'universe' can show a sense of humor on what one plans to do. LOL anyway - the car is still not fixed, however, it was towed to Rosarito and we are looking for the right and perfect motor (Subaru 2.5 liter engine) - if you know of one, please let me know.
