Happy Dogs

What dog doesn’t look happy when they are face down in their food dish? It hasn’t always been that way for us – both our dogs were off and on picky eaters most of their lives. Henry had been known to not eat for more than a day for no reason that we could discern. When we moved here the dogs had been eating a fancy designer expensive dog food. I liked that it was more real nutrition and that...

Normal life

  I haven’t written much lately because it has just become normal to live here now so it seems like there isn’t much to say! We work on our Spanish, shop, cook,visit with friends, walk the dogs, read, eat out and the rest. More or less the same things anyone does anywhere. But living here makes all the ordinary things so much better. For example, yesterday we wanted to take a walk in the afternoon. It’s much too hot to...

Henry! Henry!

Does it look to you like Henry tired himself out hogging all the toys? And does Lucy look a bit irritated about it? Please like and share this post!20...

Let’s go for a walk.

Paul and I enjoy walking the dogs every day – and of course we walk all over Centro all the time, too. Every day as I step over or around obstacles I think about taking pictures of them for the blog…and maybe it is a way to feel better about our frequently stubbed toes! The picture at the top is one of our favorite obstacles – bougainvillea. Too thorny to move out of the way so I just step around...

Ahhh, Sunshine!

It is a beautiful sunny day here in Mazatlan. We are reveling in it, because the last 5-6 days have been chilly by Mazatlan standards, anyway! It has been breezy and hasn’t been warm enough to sit outside unless you are in the direct sun – and when you’re not – brrr. Everyone in town was wearing sweaters and jackets and – god forbid – shoes. This morning we had a number of people due to come over for various...

It’s a dog’s life

Yes, Lucy has the good life, but so do we. There’s nothing like sitting in the sunshine watching a hummingbird feed in the bouganvilla. Paul and I have been doing a lot of sitting in the sun or in our office lately. It’s a happy exile because of all the work that’s being done at our house…these are the only places except the bedroom that aren’t a mess from work in progress. The courtyard is proceeding beautifully. The tile is...

We’re migrating

We enjoy a tv show called the “Dog Whisperer.” The star, Cesar Millan, says that it is important to mark the migration of the pack. He says to take long walks every day and to let the dogs sniff and smell and mark along the way. That way when they get to their new home everybody is adjusted and together. Well, we are sniffing and marking all right! The main adjustment for them seems to be that they have never...
