Couple Looking For House To Sit Between TS & CSL - Hello, my name is Matt. My long term girlfriend Amie and I will be driving to the San Pedrito area with our six-year-old chocolate lab (house broken, loves dogs and people) in mid-December and are hoping to find a place to stay in exchange for house/pet/plant sitting or property maintenance/land clearing work. We will be in the area for at least six months and are open to any lodging with a roof and a fresh water source.

I have experience with general house and yard maintenance as well as concrete and roofing work. I've also maintained solar and water catchment systems. We have both spent time in this area before and are excited to be going back. Please contact us with any questions or offers you may have.

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

Found Puppy - I found a small, tan, female puppy with a green collar Saturday afternoon in front of Caffe Todos Santos. She seems to be 2-4 months old perhaps, very clean, and very healthy. I assumed her owner was close by but nobody knew anything about her. We later believed she may have gone missing the night prior because our dogs were barking at a small animal that night. She's being taken care of at the Old Charles Stewart home (Obregon & Centenario, next to Caffe Todos Santos) if the owner happens to find this ad. - Janine Wall, coneyislandgreen [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-152-4499, Todos Santos

Sweetheart Cat Needs Home - Lovable, affectionate, friendly and well mannered. This "street cat" has been spayed, is young but not too, probably around a year old. She's been given flea treatment, fed well for a few weeks and in good shape now. But we are leaving for the states at the end of November and she needs to find a permanent home. - Colleen Ray, 805-712-1664, Todos Santos
