Sweet dog needs home - mature, calm, and very affectionate

We don't know this dog’s name, but I'll call her "Sweetheart" for now, as is so apropos. She followed my kids home from our local tienda a few days ago. Some women told them that the dog had a human family that had just moved away. Sweetheart was left behind with no home, and no one to care for her.

She entered our home of 4 other dogs, and cats, and was greeted with a surprising lack of "yapping". Our dogs accepted her in the mix without any contention, but alas, we're maxed out with 4 dogs and 2 cats, we cannot afford a 7th animal.

I'm going to guess she's between 5 and 7 years old. She has a long body so probably has some dachshund. She's very calm and incredibly sweet. She seems to be in great health but we don't know anything else about her. She'd be a great friend for mature folks that don't want a yappy, hyper animal with a full life ahead. We're sorry that we can't keep her and really hope to find her a good home.

Dog for adoption

This cute female puppy is called Lucky, she is up for adoption. She is currently at my home but I am looking for a responsible home that will love, take care of and protect her. I took her to the vet. She had a bath and was given the anti-parasitic medication and the multiple vaccine. I am not allowed to have more than one pet in the house. Please adopt her or I will be forced to let her go back to the street.

Dentist needed

Gee, it really is hard to decide but I need to go and get some dental work done, as I have a failed bridge falling apart, causing a lot of infection in my mouth. I should have had it done three or four months ago. However, I have seen the error in my ways, ahem, and am now on a serious quest for a dentist who does not overcharge, can do implants and crowns, and bridges. I have been quoted $1300 for an implant to take the place of all the bridges falling down. There is a lot of other work to be done, up there in my home country. Such work would have been the cost of a brand new Rav 4.

Recommendation for Vicente Villafuerte, moving and storage

Vicente stored a shipment that arrived from the US while I looked for permanent housing. Once I had a permanent address, he and his crew delivered the shipment and worked non-stop in bringing everything to my condo. Nothing was broken and they put the boxes exactly where I told them.

I would highly recommend Vicente and his team to anyone looking for a professional mover with very reasonable prices. Vicente speaks fluent English and is very accommodating to work with.

Recommendation for Chris Saenz, consulting, facilitator and assistant

I would like to highly recommend Chris Saenz to anyone who needs assistance or transportation for getting basic needs and services that are often overlooked by other facilitators and challenging when one does not speak Spanish or have a vehicle. Chris is an English speaking native Ecuadorian who sees the necessity to make improvements in the lives of foreign residents in the Cuenca area. He offers his services with the highest degree of honesty, fair dealing, transparency and punctuality.

My wife and I are were trying to get the big, 5 gallon bottles of pure water service delivery to our home for weeks, without any success, until I posted for help in GringoPost. Chris got in touch with us, and on the same day, took us to the plant, got us our water and arranged for home delivery each week.

He is courteous and willing to negotiate any service and a fair price. No job is too small. Give him a call to discuss your needs. I am sure he will be able to help you and you won't be disappointed.

Andres and Poleth Cabrera, day trip driver/guide, with new van

Yesterday we went to Ona (the tequila factory) and to Saraguro (jewelry and handicrafts) with a delightful young couple with a new van. It was a great trip - Andres is an excellent driver, Poleth speaks English and Spanish, and they gladly took us wherever we wanted to go. For 8 hours, 5 of us paid only $80 ($16 each). The van can hold more but to be really comfortable I would suggest no more than 6 people.

Thai food Tuesdays at the Aquaponics Urban Farm in Cuenca

Thai food Tuesdays at the Aquaponics Urban Farm. We have more help so we will be seating 16 and currently have 5 spaces left this week. We do a lunch meal starting at 1 PM. Contact us by facebook or email to get the menu and reserve your spot at the little farm here, just 10 minutes from downtown Cuenca. We do a little science talk at the end to help you better understand how the marriage between Aquaculture and Hydroponics turn both into clean and green food production machines. Normally, of course, both of these systems are hard on the environment and hard on the consumer. By putting them together they are both earth friendly and consumer friendly. All our spices are imported and you will fondly remember your meal here at the farm, on our lovely patio (indoor and outdoor in case of rain), overlooking our five acres down to the river. For menu and directons,
