August 10, 2012


Our Kristina is back again today!! She's a FANTASTIC volunteer!! All us furkids are crazy about her!! She gets here about 8:30 in the morning and goes right to work!! She even cleans up the mess after she gives us baths and drys us and stuff!! Mom says that's a HUGE plus!! She and her sister are going to see Arenal Volcano this weekend and then she'll be back with us on Monday!!

Aunt June and Uncle Jim are finally back in the states. Their flight was delayed and they didn't make it home til the early hours of the morning. But the airline "compensated" them of course. They could get all the peanuts and pretzels they wanted!! Some compensation for a 10-12 hour delay huh?
Mom says the airlines don't have any integrity anymore. She says it used to be that the airlines actually CARED about their clients but now it's just another dollar and "too bad if the customers get mistreated and inconvenienced."

Today they're celebrating Mothers Day here in our village. Costa Rica Mothers Day is on the 15th but our community is having their celebration early. The kids in the village brought Mom and invitation. They're cooking a big dinner and all the kids are going to serve the Moms up at the school or the church.
We've got some REALLY sweet kids here in our village.

We found this old picture of Mom and one of her rescues. She says ALL animals need help now and then. Not just dogs and cats. That's why she says it's important to leave some water out for the strays and the wildlife. In the heatwave water is in short supply and ALL animals need water to survive. So thank you to ALL of you who are helping that way. 

Mom says if you do just ONE THING you've done more than most!! And she says it makes you FEEL good to DO something good!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! You are keeping us in a winning position!! WHOOO HOOO!!!!
Just go to and click on the "Shelter Challenge" tab on the right. Then click on Costa Rica for the country and click search. Click on Lighthouse and click vote!!! Then type in the letters/numbers that appear to confirm your vote!! That's all there is to it!! The next time you vote there should be a message just below the search thingy that says, "This is the shelter you voted for during your last visit. If it says Lighthouse then all you gotta do is click VOTE!! Ya don't have to search for it anymore after the first time!!
