  1. No, I withdrew my comment when I was corrected, that’s all. Enjoy the cool, wet weather.
  2. This little Chihuahua was found and its tags say Bob And Judy. Contact me if it is your dog.
  3. The original topic (hospital availability) here’s an update https://www.informador.mx/jalisco/COVID-19-Ocupacion-hospitalaria-en-Jalisco-al-31-de-enero-2021-20210201-0052.html
  4. A friend of mine is trying to fly a German Shephard from The Ranch up to Toronto and would appreciate if anyone going would help get this dog up there. He would of course pay all the fees and travel expenses. Thank you
  5. If you read the newspaper article you will see that all but one of the dogs were poisoned in their own homes; even one who was on a balcony so the poisoner had to climb up and put the poisoned hot dogs there. This is the work of a sick, maimed person. But there is sick/crazy which is harmless to living beings, and he doesn’t belong to this group. Since the man who poisoned so many of our dogs in Ajijic was never punished, he may have moved on to another neighborhood. Whatever the case may be, those of us who have seen the horrible pain and suffering these dogs go through have little pity for this behavior, whatever his or her past might be.s

  7. From today’s NYtimes https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/10/world/americas/mexico-coronavirus-hospitals.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage Aug. 10, 2020Updated 9:02 a.m. E “Papito, breathe!” his wife screamed. “Please breathe.” Within an hour, Mr. Bailón was dead. Mexico is battling one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the world, with more than 52,000 confirmed deaths, the third-highest toll of the pandemic. And its struggle has been made even harder by a pervasive phenomenon: a deeply rooted fear of hospitals. The problem has long plagued nations overwhelmed by unfamiliar diseases. During the Ebola epidemic in 2014, many in Sierra Leone believed that hospitals had become hopeless death traps, leading sick people to stay home and inadvertently spread the disease to their families and neighbors. Here in Mexico, a similar vicious cycle is taking place. As the pandemic crushes an already weak health care system, with bodies piling up in refrigerated trucks, many Mexicans see the Covid ward as a place where only death awaits — to be avoided at all cost.

Mexicans are waiting to seek medical care until their cases are so bad that doctors can do little to help them. Thousands are dying before ever seeing the inside of a hospital, government data show, succumbing to the virus in taxis on the way there or in sickbeds at home. Fighting infections at home may not only spread the disease more widely, epidemiologists say, but it also hides the true toll of the epidemic because an untold number of people die without ever being tested — and officially counted — as coronavirus victims.
