Hola Y'all!!!,

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! Y'all are doin' GREAT!!! Don't forget we're voting for LIGHTHOUSE again!! Be sure to change the selection when you vote.

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!!

Karina, our volunteer, is here again today!!! YAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!!! And she brought tuna for Miss Mirri!!
You should see that little one EAT!!!
MAN!!!!!!!!!!!! Does she love tuna and chicken!!! But she turns her nose up at  canned dog or cat food. It has to be chicken Mom cooked for her or real tuna.
She does like the dry puppy chow but she's REAL picky about her wet food!!

We had another earthquake last night. It was a 4. something and Dad felt it but Mom was moving around a lot and didn't feel it.
They are saying we should expect another large earthquake so Mom is a little nervous. They have had over a thousand aftershocks from the 7.6 we had a week ago and they say something about plates shifting and stuff. So could Y'all please say some prayers and send positive energy for Costa Rica? We'd really appreciate it.
That big one really scared us a lot!!!

A family here is looking for a home for their rescued dog. If any of you are looking for a small/medium sized dog or KNOW of anyone looking this could be the best friend you've been looking for."Some info about Marty, from Lynn: Here are some pictures of my best friend Marty (above). Marty WAS a street dog, who jumped into my lap one day while eating in an outdoor restaurant. He thinks he is a cross between a bird dog (loves to chase the birds) and a lap dog (loves people/children). Marty is mid size, lean and runs like a deer. There is not a mean bone in Marty however he does bark when things seem out of the ordinary. He usually runs the perimeter of the house every morning and night and then settles back in to bed. Marty is a lot of fun- full of energy but is also calm and loves to lay in the sun. He gets along with other dogs as long as they leave his food alone (the street dog in him). He is mid size, weighs around 13 lbs and has short hair that does not shed. He does require a high fenced in yard. I adore this dog and so wish I could keep him, but unfortunately that is not possible due to a move. We will provide $50. for food. Please contact us if you are interested in meeting Marty. I can also send more pictures if necessary.
P.S. There is nothing Marty wouldn't do for a piece of cheese- its his absolute favorite!"
Contact person is Chris at

Don't forget to leave water out for the strays and wildlife!!
Here's another "Cat Drama" picture for you!!

Our GREAT volunteer, Karina, is here again this week!! She is a HUGE help!!! And we get LOTS of extra belly rubs and lovin'!!!!
She's amazed at how much Mirri has improved since she's been here!! It's an amazing difference!!
She's getting stronger and stronger. Mom and Mirri have to wrestle with her to do her eye drops, ear drops, and make her take her supplements!!
Mom did a little video of her yesterday!! You can see it here!!

Our Andre had to go to the vet last night. His snout is kinda red and puffy. Dr. Sharon did a skin scrape to send off to the lab. We should hear something back on that today. Dr. Sharon thinks it might be a fungus.

Me and the other fuzzbutts are all doin' ok. Mom helps me when I can't see so I stay pretty close to her. Juliette is losing her hearing too so now Mom has two almost deaf furkids. She has to talk REAL LOUD to help us hear her.
We think maybe Juliettes sight is getting bad too. She's always been nearsighted and now she is being more careful when she walks so Mom says it could be that her sight is getting worse.
She, Andre and I are all 15 years old.

PLEASE don't forget to change your vote back to Lighthouse!!!! We're voting for us now!! We helped Bahamas move up a little in the overall standings and we're hoping we helped them to win a weekly prize!! If they did then we can win the international as long as we stay in 2nd place!!
