a.  Do you recognise this beautiful dog?  He was found abandoned.  We are desperately looking for a foster home for him while we try to locate his owners or find him a new home.  Can you find it in your heart to help him out please? He’s a great companion! Email info@cortezrescue.org.


a.  Sunday night, my 6yo dog Hattie died from leptospirosis, a contagious bacterial infection transmitted to animals through infected rodent urine.  We recently purchased a bunch of compost and the dogs would not stop eating it.  It may not be the source but we can’t figure out what brought it onto our property right here in central Los Barriles.  After doing the autopsy and confirming lepto we had the other two dogs tested and my 10yo female tested positive for it!  She is not showing symptoms but the incubation period is 3-22 days.  Symptoms for lepto can parallel ehrlichiosis symptoms (as was Hattie’s case).  A blood test will confirm either bacteria so if you have any questions about the health of your dog, don’t hesitate!  Most importantly, both of my dogs that have contracted lepto had their vaccinations three months ago.  Apparently it is a rare, virulent and dangerous bacteria strain that we could not possibly have known to prepare for.  BUT, if you do catch it soon enough, a round of penicillin can make the difference and even save their life.  Christine Rogers 141-0014 home or 206-669-1675 US cell

b.  In years past Mexican Customs has confiscated used clothing with the intent to donate that clothing to charity.  However, if that clothing was for  your family and grandchildren, it should easily pass.  Here is the link: https://www.export.gov/article?id=Mexico-Prohibited-Restricted-Imports
