  3. This post is intended for people who love dogs and want to find and remove a dangerous individual from our community. Those who have no interest in this matter can hold their peace. Please open another thread to discuss your views on leashes and other matters. ç Thank you.

  4. I do not understand your reasoning here....on one hand you say "The State of Jalisco leash law is posted on the malecon. It very clearly states in Spanish and English the dog must have a collar and/or a leash" on the other hand you state "For 3 years at the malecon, I have been walking, without incident, a very high energy dog that needs to be off-leash. His energy is admired by all." So its ok for your dog to be running off leash even though it is in contravention of the bylaw? Perhaps all those other people who let their dogs run off leash feel the same way.

  8. its exactly the high energy dogs that should be on a leash at all times. they scare many people young and old. nobs or locals..still not acceptable to poison them though..

  9. I so agree with gringal. For years I have wondered why so many expats expose their dogs to danger when they are off-leash. And also do not pick up their dogs poop!

  10. It is horrible that dogs are being poisoned. But I have to wonder - Are these dogs leashed? Where are the owners while this is happening? I notice so many unleashed dogs just wandering around and doing their business on the malecon (& elsewhere) & I always wonder where the owners are. I have a dog too, but I would not impose on other people to the point where my dog was running loose. I understand not everyone likes or feels comfortable around dogs. Before we got our dog, every time we opened our garage doors, the same dog would come in and roam around our property & we

  11. I don't know if this is the right place for this thread but the worst that can happen is that it gets moved. In the last 10 days, we've probably had 10-12 people asking if we were opening another restaurant....the answer is absolutely not! We have however been "hired" by 2 gentlemen who have recently moved here from Puerta Vallarta and want to open a breakfast joint. We are helping them and they will be serving most of the breakfast dishes we served at the Early Bird Cafe. At this time all I can say is that it will be located at the Plaza Suites across from the plaza and will be called Jimmy D

  12. A sunbird friend of a friend sent an email yesterday about their drive a week ago back to Florida. On Sunday, at 9am, she and her husband were stopped by the Federales about 15 minutes after entering the Guad by-pass (exit right after the airport to Zapotlanejo). They started searching through their belongings when one of their dogs got riled up. The Federales asked if the dogs were dangerous. When told "maybe" the Federales stopped searching and let them go. They have Florida plates on their car. This is the same area where Federales, or local police?, were stopping people a couple

  14. As an international banker for over 30 years, there are numerous things that impact the currecy markets. No one has a crystal ball, otherwise I would agree with TelsZ4 that we would all be rich if we knew what was going to happen. The current rates have been very good. Anything above 18 is excellent considering where rates were years back. To request a bank to monitor rates for a future currency buy or sell is not going to happen unless the amount is appreciable since any profit the bank makes on a spead is directly related to the value of the transaction. Anything less than a million US do

  19. I did not post the info before as we did not know what it was for sure nor if it indeed carried any poison nor if it was intentionally placed. We have dogs always running loose down our street and cross street as we live near the La Floresta horses and several of the horse guys have multiple dogs. Those dogs sometimes go through trash bags, so what we picked up could have been the remnants of something dragged out of a trash bag up the street. Who knows? Both times when we found it, we went back out into the street with a shovel and plastic bag and gloves to dispose of the stuff. Both times i

  21. I didn't realize that presenting ideas for a meeting being convened to find a solution to a cyclical and horrific problem was so offensive. Perhaps my ideas may be too long term for you to grasp so if this is really how you all feel about this then best just lock me out M. and you guys can keep on keeping on. Power to you.

  23. I freeze parsley and cilantro. If I were freezing dill, I would use the same method. Wash the herb. Roll in a cotton cloth. Run cold water over it, then squeeze out all the water. When you open the cloth, it will be dry. Place in freezer bags and you're done. I learned this method from a chef.

  24. Well, poisoning dogs is certainly a bad solution, but so is ignoring existing laws by pet owners. Two wrongs do not make a right. As a reminder ahead of this meeting, if you attend with your dogs in tow, please keep them on a leash, especially since you all know there is the potential for poison out there. The cities I have visited who have solved this dilemma, did it by providing dedicated dog parks, imposing stiff fines on irresponsible owners, pet license fees, providing animal collection and animal destruction services etc. Wouldn't it be nice if instead of going in that expensive rou

  25. Even with a leashed dog, it is still possible for Fido to pick up some item of food that is poisoned. In any event, I agree the discussion here is not about leashes, but leaving poison out. There are many poor stray animals on the streets and they have no owners to care for them or restrict then with a leash, so the lease situation is a side issue. That topic can be another thread. Insofar as accepting the problems here in Mexico, there is nothing wrong with wanting to improve things or solve problems. Just because we live in a place that is different from our birth or citizenship doe

  26. Poisoning dogs is not the solution and it is against the law. However, poisoning the owners has come up several times amongst the neighbors. Where I live, the trash goes outside each home. There are 4 - 6 dogs that live in the neighborhood whose owners just let them out to run and they get into the trash every trash day and the neighborhood looks like a ghetto. My trash is inaccessible to the dogs, so I do not spend 30 - 40 minutes every trash day re-gathering the trash because the loose dogs have strewn it everywhere. But my neighbors do. WE know who the owners are and they have been spoken t

  27. Perhaps all dog owners who want their dogs to be able to run free without incidents should organize and pay for a dog park. This has worked wonderfully well in other areas of the world. However the malecon is not a dog park and if there are bylaws about leashes they should apply to everyone.

  28. Hud: You are very, very wrong. What you state may reflect what you wish to be true, but it is not. Many people live in multiple places, which is no business of any traffic officer. There is no requirement that your license match your registration. If you had it your way, there could be not international tourism using rental car businesses everywhere in the world.

  30. In my opinion, anyone leaving poison bait intended to randomly kill pets has lost a key element of humanity in their makeup. These sickos turn up everywhere at some point. Obviously, they need to be found and dealt with. Those that take away an important part of peoples' lives need to have an important part of their lives taken way. Like their resident visa. The State of Jalisco leash law is posted on the malecon. It very clearly states in Spanish and English the dog must have a collar and/or a leash. So, in fact it is being enforced because if the dog is wears a collar and being

  32. They do not "enforce" state laws, they just turn you over to the state police if they believe you are subject to state laws. Personal experience. I don't have a source on the mountain pass, sorry. Maybe Tom does. I'm just saying what we have been told at the Border, that a legal, permanent resident of the US cannot have a Mexican plated car while living in the US. How do they know I lived in the US? I showed then my driver's license, when I was asked for it, which showed we were legal, permanent residents of Texas, with my correct address, when they questioned. Hey, do what you like, I d

  33. We do not walk our dogs. We are fortunate to have at very large property - our dogs love to run and roam around our property and we never leave them in the front yard when we are not home. This seems to happen every year and it is beyond me as to why people do not keep their dogs leashed and close to them when walking. We stopped taking ours out and about town as the number of expats with unleashed dogs has become out of control. I am heartsick for those of you who have lost your dogs due to this sicko. What kind of a person does this? This could easily be a small child (who may be at th

  34. You can assume reasons behind these murders, night and day. In fact, If I could relate to a killer, I would check myself in with a counselor. Many a human is distasteful to us, yet it is illegal and unethical to dispose of them.. period. I cannot believe that these retirees did not inspect their future home and realize the unleashed Mexican dogs were a part of life here. Afraid of dogs, have been traumatized... go live somewhere else. Mexicans never asked for you to come live in their country. I hear from good sources/authorities that expats have been deported, due to poisoning cri

  35. If I am not mistaken, there were many instances of dog poisonings in Ajijic several years ago. The poisoner was tossing poisoned meat up onto people's balconies and, I believe, into people's yards. To the best of my knowledge, a reward was offered for information as to who it was. The individual was found out and left the area. At the meeting this Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the amphitheater at the Ajijic malecon, I hope we can get enough people together to work to find out who is doing these horrible things.

  37. That would be nice, wouldn't it? (Chances??) Debate vs. info: No debate, unless you are arguing for unleashing your dogs. Info: Yes! keep your dog safe: leash it so it won't be eating poison.

  39. One poster whose dog was poisoned said her dog was having a off leash "romp" somewhere on the Malecon when it encountered poisoned food. It died. Tragic, but it could have been avoided if the owner had obeyed the leash law. I've ranted on this subject enough but, IMO, a concerned and considerate dog owner should keep the dog leashed in areas where the public is walking. As you said, not everyone is comfortable around dogs. A good romp off leash can be enjoyed at the nearby dog park, where it is probably going to be safe from dog poisoners as well. There are some mean spirited people out the

A store attendant recently told me that he is meeting an increasing numbers of Australians - both visitors and people looking to live here. I also lived in Brissy most of my adult life so understand exactly where you are coming from. Some answers/clarifications for you. 1. Where to live. If you sell a house in Brisbane, you should have plenty to purchase here - although that depends on your equity. As for the area to live in, you should wait
