News and Events, Questions and Answers

Eco-Talk at La Esquina - To be held this Thursday, Jan. 19, at 5 p.m. This talk is very relevant and interesting for Todos Santos! Tom Arie Donch will speak about Transforming Communities Through Community Built Work. The community built process is used to create parks, playgrounds, buildings, community gardens, and public art along with a myriad of other community environments. It can create amazing environments at a fraction of the costs, but it is the transformation of the communities and individuals in that process that is most significant. This visual presentation will show examples of community build projects around the United States.

Do You Know Her? - Jan. 10 this lovely female Shepard came into our yard (right by the road leading to La Poza) hoping for a kind human touch and an invitation to dinner. She's in excellent condition, very well-behaved and obedient - learning immediately to give our cat her space. She is very smart and responds immediately to any kindness! She had an extremely heavy clip on her weathered collar indicating that she may have been tied - possibly over an extended period as her collar shows much stress and is cut away underneath this clip - obviously from straining to get free. I cannot keep this dog even for one more week. If she is yours - claim her now - or if you would like to consider this beautiful girl as your own faithful companion - the time is NOW. Call Linda Stobbe at 145-0377. - Linda Stobbe, lsstobbe [- at -] yahoo.com, 145-0377, Todos Santos

Nice Dog Needs Home - Cute boxer-like dog needs good home, has been fixed and is healthy, very energetic and is a good watch dog. www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150468445372414.358302.692117413&type=1&l=5960ca10ca - Eva Torres Lepine, eva_lepine [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-108-8447, La Paz

Stray Puppy Needs Good Home ->>> - I am a stray that was rescued in La Paz at a Christmas Eve party, I am extremely skinny and would like to find a good home. The nice girl that rescued me is willing to foster me for a while and have me fixed as soon as I gain a bit of weight, but I will need a good home because it is a little crowded at her house and just not possible for me to stay here forever. - Eva Torres, eva_lepine [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-108-8447, La Paz

Stray Dog Needs Ride To Cabo Humane Society - During the fireworks a dog showed up at my casa. A brindle pit bull, skinny, scared, humble. I can't keep him and have no way to take him to Cabo to the Humane Society. Can you help? I live in Todos Santos, in the otro lado. 612-118-7393 - Anne Marie Maurier, l.maurier [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-118-7393

Looking For A Better Life - We Ran Away >From Home - Hi, Our names are Gus & Scout and we're brothers. We left home because there were 11 of us and we just didn't all get along very well. And, a dog had recently killed one of our brothers and later attacked our sister. It was getting scary.

We're 18 months old, fixed, and can be friendly. I have gray and black stripes with white feet and am big for my age. Gus is totally black, green eyes, and average size. Our owners miss us a lot and just want people in Pescadero (just north of the Tequila Factory by the beach) or there about -- to know that we're cool cats and could use a little love and food if you see us hanging around. We're outdoor cats and can fend for ourselves but... Thanks for reading about us and please be nice to us if we stop by for a visit :-) - Bonnie, bajapeacewear [- at -] hotmail.com, Pescadero

Lost Golden Retriever - Lost GR in North Pescadero area 3 weeks ago. Was sick with weepy eyes and caretakers let her go. Am home now and heartbroken. If you have seen her(Layla), please call Barbara Chick at 612-154- 5983. Reward - Barbara Chick, 612-154-5983

<<<- Have You Seen Leyla?? - Attention Pescadero Residents - Please help! I've just returned from a trip to find out that my beautiful (very blonde!) "golden retriever" mix, "Leyla" - my faithful companion for more than three years - "went missing" around the 10th of December. The people that I'd paid to care for her are clueless - and I am truly beyond heartsick! She left from my yard in north Pescadero - right by the Huerta Huizapol - a few blocks (on the right-hand side) before the Pemex if you're coming in from Todos Santos. I'm offering a generous reward for your help in returning Leyla to her home! She's very people-friendly and loves car rides. Please call me if you have any information and can help. - Barbara Chick, 044-612-154-5983, Pescadero
