  1. FYI also can usually buy hangers at Todo Bueno consignment store in Riberas — very inexpensive & better than buying more plastic
  2. Maybe they’re feeling sad for you because it appears you could use some actual live friends in your life to talk with…. I doubt many here are really interested in what you eat/drink when and your bathroom habits
  3. Thanks , just looking for a regular old podiatrist type..nothing complicated
  4. No luck with Google. hopefully someone you have personal experience with. Prefer individual provider (vs SAT Hospital or Quality Care) but beggars can’t be choosers
  5. Unfortunately For obvious reasons (though great dogs) it is very difficult for rescues to find home for Great Danes
  6. Todo Bueno (next to S&S auto). Tuesday- Saturday 10-3. Masks required
  7. Shelters are as mentioned above:: The Ranch, Lucky Dog, and the newest SOS Natasha refers to Bone Voyage , also a local dog rescue group. they do have not a physical facility but rather rely on fosters. They have a FB page and website with contact info
  8. ALL the shelters of course have limits…and wait lists ..but are sensitive to dogs in immediate peril and do what they can.
  9. All the shelters MtnMama referenced above have websites and FB pages with contact info…reach out and hope for the best. They’ll probably ask about the mama as they’re likely still nursing
  10. To each their own….I bought the Kirkland Sirloin Burgers, tried one but found it inedible…ended up giving to them to the dog - he enjoyed them!
  11. Supposedly they open at 4am….but my trip in January worker didn’t show up until 4:45. About 20 people in line by then . Multiple people in line asked multiple airport personnel — responses were just shrugs
  12. Re The Ranch, another option would be to donate the funds directly to them as dog food is purchased in large volumes and delivered by truck directly to The Ranch ….so your donation would go farther
  13. You might check with Bone Voyage…they’ve had occasions where they unexpectedly (flight delays/cancellations) needed to board dogs in transit from Lakeside to NOB
  14. This requirement applies to concerts only? Not required to just enter the property for other reasons (dining, visit etc)?
  15. a warning ..My first experience there.. convenient to my house so I wanted to give them a try. Took my two small poodle type dogs there today for grooming at 1pm and was told they’d be ready in about 2 hrs. After several calls where I was told they were not yet ready I was finally able to pick them up at 6:45pm. The haircuts were ridiculous- not a major deal , it’s only hair after all and will grow back. My real issue is that the groomer had decided to tranquilize one of my dogs for the process — without even notifying me or getting my permission. I didn’t know until I went to pick them up. I had to carry him all the way home as he could not move or stand. He was able to stand finally around 8pm. not only did they tranquilize him without my permission, I believe that he was over sedated and that’s why they kept pushing back the pick up time and telling me they weren’t yet ready. FYI he’s on the nervous side so I’ve no doubt he wasn’t happy about getting groomed; however he’s been groomed before somewhere else and no problems. The vet was not on site at pickup , only the groomer, but I plan on going there tomorrow to speak with him
  16. And imagine the fun and thrills trying to enter/exit onto the carretera from there!
  17. A friend who knows her work is interested in commissioning an art piece. Or maybe someone knows a local shop that sells her work? Ms Nery lives I believe in Chapala
  18. I’d like schedule a visit to this winery with some friends….Anyone have contact information? I tried FB and Google with no luck
  19. Looking for recommendation and current contact information for mobile dog grooming services
  20. Home recommendations are most welcome… however well-intended general commentary on the topic and judgements are simply not helpful at this point
  21. Thank you I spoke with Happiness Care (Riberas) today. They are full with a waiting list — and charge a basic rate of $40,000p/month ( excludes medications and adult diapers) . my friend has only US Social Security income - approx 25,000p month so that is far beyond the budget.
  22. Looking for suggestions /personal experience for a care home for a friend with rapidly progressing dementia and no family. (Residente Permanente status) . Individual has a very Limited budget ..U.S. Social Security income only . No very serious medical conditions at this point but needs 24/7 oversight
  23. Yes you can go back to the lab at Soriano for a paper copy if you wish…airline will accept paper or smartphone (I take both with me -just in case)
