  1. dog car seat and dog seat cover

    Hi: is this car seat still for sale and if so can you send me a picture. I have two dog car seats already and could use a third but would like it to be the same style as the others. Also what is the weight that the seat handles and is there a safety hook that attaches to the dog's harness?
  2. Actually I have two questions. First: we are about to start our tax returns and e-file them as usual, however we have been told this afternoon that it is not possible to file this way. We have been doing it for years without any trouble; has something changed that would prevent us from e-filing? Next question: we have a friend who wants to hire someone in the Chapala area to do her's and her husband's Canadian tax returns. I know that there are at least a couple of people offering the service as I have seen it advertised, but of course, now that I need to lookup the information, I cannot find the advertisement. Can anyone recommend someone and provide an address and telephone number?
  3. I think that poor installation is the main problem with our damaged tile. The first floor that we had refinished, replaced tiles that we knew were very old just by the design; there were no cracks in them but they were worn looking and since we had enlarged the space we had to start with new, because we could not match what was there. Within weeks we had cracks; this was nine years ago and still every time we vacuum and wash the floors we displace some of the grout; it is like shale! Other tiles seem not to have a full concrete foundation; if we drop something there is a hollow sound; some of these have not cracked yet but give it time! The bathrooms have all been re-built from the dirt up; we were here to watch the process; none of these tiles have cracked and all of the bathrooms were done between two and nine years ago so, so far, so good. But I do like the look of the stone/flagstone and would be interested in investigating it if I knew where to start in the Chapala, Jocotepec area.
  4. We have been considering replacing our tile floors with stone (flagstone?). We have seen a few houses with stone floors and think that they might be a good alternative to the tiles which seem to crack easily, at least ours do and some of our tiles are not more than five years old. If you have stone floors, do you like them and why, or hate them and why? Can you tell us who we would see about buying and installing same. The other thing we have considered is marble but again, we know nothing about who installs them and what the durability, maintenance and cost compared to floor tile is; any information/observations would be appreciated.
  5. Sparks Is Yesso the same as plaster of Paris?
  6. I am looking for plaster of paris to make chalk paint; does anyone know where I can buy this lakeside or what it is called in Mexico?
  7. Rony: Hi Rony where would we find you? If we haven't managed to find some before Wednesday and you are still willing I would like to take advantage of the offer. Would you P.M. me and I will try to remember and look!
  8. Zeb it is for cooking. I will check with the store beside Gossips.
  9. Thanks Pappy . . .
  10. Does anyone know where to buy this either in Ajijic or Jocotepec? We have checked Wal-Mart, Superlake and a store in Joco that carries spices but no luck.
  11. Thanks for posting the pictures Julie.
  12. Schnauzer for adoption Lake Chapala Area A young, approximately eight month old, Schnauzer needing a forever home. According to the veterinarian, he is a pure bred Schnauzer about ten kilos. The boy is very beautiful, wonderful, playful disposition, good with other dogs, loves a car ride and sleeps all night in a crate. It would seem that this little guy has been a housedog as he is very clean and has had no accidents in the house. He is also non shedding and non allergenic. I am posting this for a friend who cannot keep the dog but is anxious to find him a loving, forever home. She can be reached for ore information or pictures at 331 352 4573, 766 0112 OR EMAIL. balymena@hotmail
  13. Lobos I feel for you and hope you find someone who can help. I could be wrong but I was sure about five years ago the subject came up and there was someone locally who made animal wheelchairs; I could be way wrong but I think that the man worked in the plaza across from Wal-mart (Interlago?). I will ask around and see if I can turn up any information but is it possible that one of the local vets could lead you to the information that you seek?
  14. Cedros: good point; I understand that is why I requested infoto be delivered in a PM!
