Dark Day For Pescadero. (explanation To Power-outage In Pescadero 11-12-12) - So it seemed like a normal day. The power went out earlier. So we decided to look at puppies. Then one of our friends passed us on the road and told us that there had been an accident. And a big truck ran into a power line pole made of concrete- no power- 'BiNg' Makes sense. So we decided to have a look at the accident before seeing the puppies. It happened on the highway in front of Cerritos Beach. The driver is believed to be dead. The medics were trying to revive him. Didn't look successful. So they drove him away. Here's some photo's I took of the wreck.

She is a healthy small dog, about 6 months old, as per dr. david, and spayed last week. I cannot keep her. Please, if you are looking for a house broken puppy, email me as soon as possible. thank you, dianejoy39 [- at -] yahoo.com - Diane, dianejoy39 [- at -] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Not Everyone Can Foster A Dog - But anyone can help buy food for them. There are now three more little darlings at Punto Lobos and they aren't finding the old-timers very good at sharing. Can you pick up a bag of dog food the next time you to go to Costco or Walmart or Sam's Club or wherever you shop. It would be greatly appreciated. - Maryann, maryann [- at -] bajawesternonion.com, 145-0791
