In many small and rural towns in Latin America there is quite often a ¨homeless dog¨ problem. It becomes a problem because most villagers like dogs but simply can´t care for them, feed them or even have space in their tiny one room huts for them to sleep. Many dogs wander the streets looking for a kindly handout or a place to hide out during the strong rainstorms. Maya was one of those dogs.
Maya, a very lovely white Husky, was put out into the streets by a local drunk man who could not take care of her or himself...Lord, have mercy. We noticed Maya right away because she stood out from the pack and was quite the friendly street warrior. One late afternoon we heard a dog screaming from the street (unfortunately, not a unfamilar sound as cars race by down the Calle Real and hit animals and sometimes people). Animal lover Juan Carlos rushed outside and there was Maya, recently clipped by a car, lying in great anguish by the road. JC went to farmacia and his dog loving lady friend inside gave (donated) him a pain killer to inject. Maya quieted and JC brought her into his sorta-clinic in the back of our garage (Maya being the most recent guest in his kinda-dog/pet-hospital). Over the past weeks Maya has rested quietly, healed and prospered. She´s been a good patient and she received lots of healthy food and outstanding care and even physical therapy by Juan Carlos. She´s has been given ALL her shots, been dewormed, groomed and now awaits her spaying (maybe next week as she almost no longer limps). We will take her into Antigua to the young-wonder-vet-to-the-wealthy and hopefully he will give us a discount (as he often does) on another one of our rescued street animals.
Maya is a very big and obediant doggie (although still filling out from being underfed). She is estimated to be less than two years old (by her white/strong teeth) and is a friendly and loving animal. She will be needing a new home soon. No more street dog living for Maya. We will be looking for a family with a fenced in yard and a family who takes good care of their pets...really good care. If you are interested in having lovely Maya be part of your life please send me a note here or contact me directly. Maya can travel easily (anywhere in the World) and only needs a sponsor to pay for the ticket and documents. No problema. You won´t be sorry if you have Maya join you in your everyday life...she´s gentle and beautiful.

REAL HERO/REAL LIFE: Bishop John Shelby Spong
“I was simply interpreting a rising consciousness,” he said. “Whether it was race or women or homosexual people, the issue was always the same: fighting against anything that dehumanizes a child of God on the basis of an external characteristic.” Bishop John Shelby Spong (click on his photo)
IT GETS BETTER--Archbishop Desmond Tutu supports LGBT full acceptance and inclusion too!
¨Churches say that the expression of love in a heterosexual monogamous relationship includes the physical, the touching, embracing, kissing, the genital act - the totality of our love makes each of us grow to become increasingly godlike and compassionate. If this is so for the heterosexual, what earthly reason have we to say that it is not the case with the homosexual?¨ Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu
