|EL PROGRESO - A FAMILIAR LOGO IN ALL OF MÉXICO|

Diabetes is the number one cause of death in México.
There are hundreds of Coca-Cola logos in and around Puerto Vallarta. When I visited Chiapas, the southernmost and poorest state of Mexico, Coca-Cola´s presence was evident, even in the former church of San Juan de Chamula. Inside, adults and children were swigging large bottles of Coke or a drink called “ponch,” which is a mixture of Coke and rum and something else. Great belching, which the people believe rids them of evil spirits, follows. In many parts of Mexico, Coke is often more accessible and less costly than water. Children are being given Coca-Cola as a breakfast drink. It´s even put in baby bottles for infants.

NEEDS HOME ASAP:
"Tyson," a gentle brown and white male Pit Bull Mix, has been at the Centro de Acopio for a year-and-a-half. Tyson was adopted last week and was so excited to be leaving the Acopio that he jumped uninvited into his new owner´s car. Sadly, the nice young man owned another dog that didn´t like Tyson, so he was returned to the Acopio. Dogs are only to be walked twice a week there. Tyson needs to go to a foster or permanent home as soon as possible. Contact the Acopio: 293-3690

RESCUED AND NEED HOMES:
SOS!! "Cabezón," the hound dog from el Tuito whose ear had been hacked off with a machete. This noble dog is only three years old, but has osteoporosis. His foster mother, Saashi Rodriguez, is giving him daily massages and glucosamine and says he is now playing like a puppy with her other dog. Saashi leaves for the U.S. September 8th, so a solution needs to be found for Cabezón as soon as possible.

Shamira found a frightened young Chihuahua mix inside the tunnel road on Friday night, August 1st. Shamira, who saves many animals, said she was running out of rescue dog names, so is calling him"Tunel" (Spanish pronunciation="Toonel").
