Good Times At Lighthouse

Hola Y'all!!

We've had a GREAT couple of weeks here at Lighthouse!!! We got to meet Aunt Karen and Uncle Frank!! AUNT KAREN MAKES HOMEMADE TREATS!!!! WHOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! They have a really cool cat named Merlin

and a little girl dog named Sissy!!

She's a real cutie. She's not quite used to hangin' with so many perros but she's getting there. A couple more visits and she'll be putty in my hands. Y'all KNOW how charmin' I can be!! I think she's a little scared of ol' big mouth Laika.
Aunt Karen helps Mom give us baths!!!!!

They came up again today to meet the new pups who got dumped Wednesday. Mom and Dad were dressed and ready to go to a St. Patty's Day party when a woman showed up with two puppies she said were dumped on her road. She owns a restaurant and she said her cook saw them first, told her, and she ran out to the road and picked them up seconds before a big bus came over the hill.

Mom just took them in the clinic and put them in a big soft fleece in one of the kennels until she could get back from the party. They seem pretty healthy but they have a little bit of mange. They're pretty cute kids. Mom says they are Schnauzer mixes about 6 weeks old. We named 'em Patty and Marty.

AND GUESS WHAT!!!! Our clinic refrigerator died and Mom lost LOTS of her dog and cat medicines and a lot of expensive tests!! She was really sick about that.
Well today a good friend, Jose, donated a little refrigerator he was not using!! Now all we gotta replace are the meds and the tests!!

And we got to meet some MORE really nice people!! Art and Caroline, some people Mom met on Costa Rica Living, went and got the refrigerator for us and brought it to us!!!! Mom gets lost every time she goes to Alejuela so Art offered to get it for us!! How's THAT for really nice people!!!

Bingo and Annie are still here and needing homes. And we think Super Mom Lisa has decided she's stayin'. There's a new kitten too. Her name is Mariah.

We're still in 2nd place in the shelter challenge and that's ANOTHER good thing!!! It's just been a really good couple of weeks!!! Y'all be sure to keep votin' ok? We need that grant to replace some of the meds and stuff.
All ya gotta do is go to and look for the purple tab, on the right, that says "Shelter Challenge" Type in lighthouse for the shelter name and click on Costa Rica for the country. Search and when our name comes up click "vote" and wait for the vote confirmation!! Do it every day until April 19th and help us win!!!

We love it when good things happen!!!!
