Dice "hola" a Diego (say "hi") to Diego!







After losing our sweet dogs in December, we have been reluctant to become dog owners again. There is no shortage of needy dogs here in Bucerias - every few days, it seems, someone tells us about a dog that needs a home. This time of year is especially difficult - many of our Canadian/US "snowbird" residents are preparing to fly home as the weather warms up, and they often leave behind the dogs they were caring for while they were here. But we have said "no" many times and waited for the right dog. Now, we have found him.
Diego was born to a dog that lives right next door. She had eight puppies and he was the last remaining puppy after seven were given to new homes. Jerry has had his eye on Diego for several weeks - we like his markings and think he will grow up to be a handsome dog...not too big, either.
Diego is a sweet puppy who learns very quickly. He adores Jerry and follows him everywhere. He gets along (pretty) well with the cats. Bienvenidos a nosotras casa, Diego.

On December 28, our three dogs were poisoned when someone threw a small bag of poisoned fish over our wall into our yard. They died very quickly and without much suffering. I posted about it at the time, but have removed it because it was just too sad.

Oh Karen I am so sorry. Humans can be so strange. I have read other blogs that this has happened as well. I wonder if the poisoners plan to come back later when there are no doggies and try to break in? Who know, but it sucks nevertheless.

Oh my gosh. I have a dog that looks very much like your dog and his name is Diego. My baby was rescued from Puerto Rico in August 2008. I brought him home in October of last year. Your boy WILL grow up to be very handsome. I get compliments on my Diego all the time. Your Diego is also adorable.
