Wake me in September

Awful smells, s l o w internet, and a personal malaise are hallmarks of life during the rainy season. Insects and thunder figure prominently.
Newbies Perl and Ruby are a bright spot











The sterilization clinic in May went well enough.   
Thank you to Fanny from Wilberth tortillaria for making/donating lunch for the surgical team! 
Follow up lasted well after the clinic. Once the dogs spayed at the clinic (including Soliteria!) recovered, we had 5 more dogs spayed in Merida using left over supplies. Thank you Pets & Co!
Since then the town has poisoned strays again, including some that had been sterilized. If that pisses you off, let the mayor know! 
Perl and Tupo safe at home  











In June we had Nico and Coco spayed -and their sisters (thanks to the help of Angel). So relieved to have all the mosquito shack girls sterilized! 
We didn't really believe we could make it happen.

After months with no results from treatments for fungus, we had a biopsy done and it turns out Nico has a problem with her immune system. Poor baby. 
Since we've been treating that she has started to put on weight and regrow her fur and lost nails.

June was the first anniversary of the arrival of Junebug and Zoila.
Strong, smart, beautiful and a bit weird. They are a handful!











August is sweet, silly Murci's third anniversary.
















We intend to start a CADA website for updates and fund raising that focuses on strays and emergency cases in town.There is obviously overlap, but I think of this blog as a family album. Until then I'll try to be better about mentioning things we do outside of our home (usually with the help of fellow CADA member Jacky).
3 legs and all cute

poor girl got hit by a car but she's on the mend.



We recently were surprised to find out that Linda has bad hips. That means going swimming instead of on walks,but she isn't complaining.
Linda, Perl and Ruby love the water!
















Happy, wet Linda Loca
Ruby is a fierce little beauty











Perl is a charmer (and smitten with Archie)
















Perl and Nico front a group of our finest demolition experts
















All done swimming, going home.
