Dear friends of Frances!
Thank you for voting for us. Please we need every day your vote!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All my dogs are happy and waiting that I put them in their beds. We had a quiet Sunday with a lot of work but without (bad) surprises! The weather was very warm and beautiful. Two dogs arrived today for boarding. They are with us already the third time. This time for nearly three weeks.
I took today some pictures from our new puppies with their mother. We found them in San Miguel – a village not far away from us. They are two months old and really sweet. The photos are not the best because the mother is protecting them very strong.
Please take a look at
The dog which has his castration on Friday is still with us until he is fully recovered and has his vaccinations. He will go back to his owner in a few days.
I want to tell you the story of our beloved Carolina:
Carolina was born in February 2008. She came with her mother Paula and her three sisters Michelle, Mindy and Paulina in the age of a few weeks.
One day Dee from Canada visited me and looked for a dog for her stay of one year in Costa Rica – meanwhile studying in the University. She felt in love with Paula – renamed her Tank and took Tank with her to her wonderful home in Canada.  Tank is living now like a queen and I am so happy.
Her daughter Carolina was two years ago adopted from a couple from the United States. They lived in San Ramón but after six months they decided to leave the country. I didn´t want them to take Carolina because where they were going was too dangerous for my dog. And I was right. Her mother for six months confirmed me that they now have a very hard and not very comfortable life. I am sorry for them but I am happy for my dog. The problem is that Carolina is very close to people. Even when we try to do our best she still prefers to be part of a family. She is trying to get attention from every visitor who is coming and is crying when they went away. We have so many pretty dogs – en total we have 180 dogs – so the competition is big.
Carolina is a very sweet, peaceful, easygoing, beautiful and lovely dog which goes well with children and other dogs. She is now 4 years old but she is still a young dog and she is a very healthy dog. Her weight is 13,5 kg.
Her mother Paula was adopted in the age of more than 5 years.
The most similar to their mother Paula is Paulina which is the reason for her name.
I think everybody who wants to adopt Carolina will fall in love with her.
Please let me know when you want to see the album of photos from Carolina.
Please we all need your help and so we are asking: Please keep voting for us. I thank you with all my heart.
Many hugs Helene
