Clarification On UPS - I recently put a short article in the Onion regarding an experience I had with UPS. This was not to reflect on the services Ruben at Multi Servicios Las Palma offers to us. The original documents I sent to the Canadian Government offices were delivered intact and in a very timely manner. Ruben is very professional and courteous as well as being extremely helpful, and speaking English. One of the great services offered by UPS is that they send e-mail tracking notices to your own e-mail address. At no time was my address listed in any of the UPS documents as Ruben let me use his business address. He also let me use his address to have my documents returned to me. I was so impressed with his services that in future all my important packages will be sent through his UPS service. I have full confidence in Multi Servicios Las Palma and through him the UPS services. We are lucky to have him offer this to us right in our own neighbourhood, across from La'Esquina. I am extremely sorry if I inadvertently caused alarm regarding UPS services. Just a reminder: UPS/DHL do not pick up packages at your home, only at the respective office locations. - Sharon Stone, s.stone60 [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-118-8444

June 21, 2012 Update - I am absolutely thrilled to share an email I just received from Lic. José Armando Garcia Nuño, Dirección de Política Intersectorial, Dirección General de Planeación Estratégica y Política Sectorial, Secretaria de Turismo (SECTUR). It reads:

Mrs Allyson,

Yesterday, we had a meeting with the Aeronautic Authority on this case for talking about the concern of you visitors by the prohibition of get pets on airplanes. At the meeting we were able to obtain good news, which I inform you: They going to change of the article one hundred seven (107) of the regulations of the law, where the regulation is established on the transportation of animals allowed in the passenger cabins. Today, the Aeronautic Authority has already a proposal for a reform to the article of the rules of which shared and will be analysed.

The Aeronautic Authority published an official circular where inform about of the current authority decision and where they report the possibility that in the month of September is already counted with this reform allowing, in some way, raise animals to the passenger cabins. In this moments The law should be applied without exception. But we hope that the reform to law going to ready on September.

After receiving this email, I called and spoke with Sr. Garcia directly. He informed me that the document is currently be reviewed and that it should be finalized by next week. He confirmed that the revised policy will allow pets to fly in the cabin on both national and international flights, and that it should be in place by September 2012. He agreed to email a copy to me, which I will post at soon as I receive it.

Anyone Need A Ride From La To Cabo? - Mid May to June - Looking to move down to Cabo with flexible dates between mid May and the end of June. This will be my first trip through Baja so really hoping for someone who has done this before or to join a caravan heading across the border and down to LP or preferably Cabo. I have two dogs so if we are riding together, will be great if you like dogs too! - M Currie, macurrie [- at -] bellsouth.net, Baja California Sur

Perro extraviado. Es un pudul, el perro tiene 4 años, y su nombre es DOKY. Por favor, si sabe algo. Comuníquese al número: (Ingles) 612-132-8777; (Español) 612-118-1227. Mis tres hijas mi esposo y yo, se lo agradeceremos. - Victor Sossa, lacio31hotmail.com, 612-132-8777, Todos Santos

Dog Found - Young male dog found. He is black with a brown mask and brown legs. He is wearing a purple nylon collar without tags. Please contac me. - Diana Pandell, dianapandell [- at -] sbcglobal.net

It's Raining Kitties At Kitty Heaven - Twelve new little darlings have arrived: 3 white ones with blue eyes,3 black ones, 4 tabbies, one not quite tortoise shell. They are guaranteed to keep your home mouse-free and are all available for immediate adoption.


If you are not able to bring one of these sweethearts into your home, you could consider sponsoring the kitty of your choice for only $10.00 U.S. a month. That's all it takes to provide food, shelter, and medical care for a local animal. We will send you a photo of your chosen kitty, and if you are in Todos Santos, you can visit "your" happy pet, and even give her/him a name. What an opportunity to help a fellow creature! To learn more about sponsoring a homeless critter, please contact Angelique at bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com, www.bajarescue.com, 145-0250

Help Save A Starving Dog - When traveling north (or south) we all see the starving homeless dogs along the road. Especially around San Quintin and the towns north. So, if you see a dog in distress and can stop safely, please call one of these groups and get transporting directions, instead of leaving them to starve and die on the road side. To help you with your rescue, have an old blanket, kibbles, water bowl and a loop collar leash in your car. If you are not comfortable transporting them, even offering them food will help.

If You See An Animal In Distress, Call: The Baja Animal Sanctuary, near Rosarito, 22 miles south of the San Ysidro border 619-786-7928 www.BajaAnimalSanctuary.org. C.A.R.E in the Punta Banda area, 1/2 hour south of Ensenada. 626 145 0484 www.carebaja.org. Please print these numbers and carry them with you. Together we can make a change. - ALMA Humanitaria, A.C., www.almacares.com The Baja Western Onion
