LAST RAINS

 

los domingos - río cuale-  paso guayabitos - Puerto Vallarta      º      Sundays are family days on the river

EL PROGRESO:  A partially rural neighborhood eight kilometers northeast of centro Vallarta.  Close to the foothills, which block the rising sun, it was still dark at 7:30 in the morning.   Location for clinic was in an empty, immaculate one-story white cement house used for community events, including workshops.  The roosters were crowing and looking for scraps of food with their chicken families and friends in a large, nearby pile of trash. Over forty pets were waiting with their owners, some of whom had arrived as early as 5 AM.  Across the dirt road, a bare chested man with cropped beard, moustache and gold inlayed front teeth proudly showed me one of the six puppies born to his dog a week ago.  It was her third litter. 

Arriba:  Dueño de unos perros que vive con su familia atrás de la casa comunidad en el Progreso.  Para la mamá de este cachorrito de una semana de edad, es el tercer parto.  Abajo:  Caminado de su casa un poco lejos, llegaron demasiado tarde para registrar sus 3 perros.  Regresaron a su casa con 3 bolsas de alimento y tres correas nuevas y el jueves, las mascotas fueron esterilizados. 

STERILIZATIONS IN EL PROGRESO 7-10 DE OCTUBRE: 

Perros:11; Perras:58; Gatos:29; Gatas: 64   TOTAL:  162!

Plus pregnancy terminated for cat with 4 fetuses (aborto para 1 gata con 4 fetuses)
Madrugada.  Esperando registrar sus mascotas en el Progreso.  Unos llegaron a las 5 de la mañana.

DONATIONS IN EL PROGRESO:  1,410 PESOS

The clinic in el Progreso was made possible by the generous donation of $10,000 US from Sharon Tognietti and Sarah Weber.  This will underwrite costs for 5 5/9 spay/neuter clinics.  This was the fourth.

clínica en la primaria Nicolás Bravo - el porvenir, Nayarit

EL PORVENIR, NAYARIT - A small town located in the Valle de Banderas, 15.77 kilometers (9.8 miles) northeast of Puerto Vallarta. Sprinkles en route with flashes of lightning in far away, pale grey clouds.  The clinic took place in a blue, air-conditioned classroom at the Nicolás Bravo elementary school. Bravo (b.1786; d.1854) was a Mexican politician and military officer who participated on the insurgent side during the War of Independence.  He was President for three three brief terms- 1839;1842-43 and  1846.

la última registrada fué a las 7 de la mañana - clínica en el porvenir

Arrival time for first persons at clinic was 4 AM.  The last person to be able to register a pet was a smiling, pale-skinned older woman wearing a bright blue sleeveless dress.  She had arrived with several cats in cages on top of a wheelbarrow.  It was only 7 AM and there was no more space available.  Across the street from the school is the large plaza with a children´s playground and tilted fir tree. A young woman wearing a black mask approached with her two dogs to say she had been turned away and asked what time should she come back the next morning.  The young, middle-size black female had given birth to ten puppies ten weeks ago and all had died.  Six in the morning usually guarantees registration.

No había más espacio para mascotas después de las 7 de la mañana el miércoles.  La perra negra había dado la luz a 10 cachorritos hacía 10 semanas y ninguno sobrevivió.  La señorita iba a regresar como a las 6 el día siguiente.  el porvenir

Clare Leach (board member) - $50 US monthly for PETCO´s discounted pet food for clinics give-away
                                               
ADOPTIONS:  Big demand in parts of the U.S. for small dogs,  due to so many adoptions during CoronaVirus/sheltering in.  The opposite is true for Mexico.  More cats and dogs are being abandoned than usual during COVID-19.  Owners struggling to feed their families can´t afford to feed their pets. The three pretty kittens of the "Gringa" mama cat mistakenly left at a recent clinic were adopted at AngeliCAT shelter.  The family had wanted two females, but didn´t want to leave the male tabby behind.

EDUCATION PROGRAM:  On hold until schools reopen.  It has been confirmed that schools will not reopen in the states of Jalisco or Nayarit until the third week of August, 2021.  Alas.  COVID-19.

LAST RAINS:   People ask what it´s like to be in Puerto Vallarta now.  September, which normally is uncomfortably hot and humid with skies that look and feel like a steamy grey blanket, was gorgeous.  In  mid-October, which might be the worst weather month here, temperatures (high 80´s to low 90´s) and humidity (60% plus) have risen, but night rains continue and skies still blue.  We have the dazzling Pacific and Banderas Bay, rivers, jungle, and wide open spaces.  Many restaurants are open-air and with social distancing.  November will mark the end of the rainy season and its beautiful, often electrifying inundations.  Although daily rains were forecast for this week, there were just three brief downpours Friday night.  November typically is the end of the very hot weather until next summer and when snowbirds return.

UNEXPECTED MORNING:  The very large outline of a large heart on the sand was made with white and deep pink bougainvillea petals.  Straw baskets of tropical fruit were in the middle of the heart. It was eight o´clock in the morning at Conchas Chinas beach, and we were there to swim.  It was the same time for a wedding and blessing ceremony. Two Native American women dressed in deep blue held stone mortars with burning copal. The fragrant smoke was passed from head to toe and over the front and backside of all guests. Invited to participate in this traditional blessing of the joining of two hearts, we did.

At  the beach next to la Rosita" hotel at the north end of the malecón, swimmers gather every morning about eight, no matter what the weather is.  Colorful floaties keep them safe from boats and long boarders.  Not far away, bikers are at los arcos getting ready for a team ride.  On the sand at popular los muertos beach near the  modern "sail" pier, social distancing is observed by roping off large squares of sand.  In the water on week-ends, families cluster near the pier and told they cannot jump off from it.  They do.

AROUND TOWN:  La Fina restaurant - atmosfera #151 in colonia el Caloso  (close to gringo gulch and colonia Emiliano Zapata) -  Five wooden tables in an outside patio strung with small, colorful lights. After being seated, I asked our waiter if we could see the indoor part of the restaurant.  "Well, no, that´s the chef´s home."  Jonathan, our waiter, is the chef´s nephew.  Delicious food beautifully presented, excellent service and cozy atmosphere. Don´t miss!  Reservations via FB.

Restaurante la Fina - col. el Caloso
After watching Netflix´s documentary, "My Octopus Teacher,"was sorry to see it on the menu. Strangely beautiful, and deemed to be as intelligent as dogs and some lower primates, the octopus has three hearts, nine brains and 20,000 suckers on its eight arms.  

The awesome octopus. Ten percent 
of its brain is centralized in a highly folded, 30-lobed donut-shaped structure arranged around its esophagus. Two optic lobes account for another 30%, and 60% lies in its arms.  Difficult to say which animals are alright to eat and which are not, but I think the other-worldly octopus could stay off restaurant menus without too much inconvenience to restaurant owners and diners.  Maybe this very good film will dampen the demand.

FANTASTIC BROCKMANNS OF BANDERAS BAY




Perros de Pipo Brockmann - Boca de Tomatlan
Pipo Brockmann - Boca de Tomatlán

VALLE DORADO ("Golden Valley") is basically a housing development (fraccionamiento) just  southeast of Nuevo Vallarta off highway 200, 40 minutes north of Vallarta.  The clinic took place in the secondary school on Amado Nervo street.  Juan Crisótomo Ruize de Nervo is the full name of the poet, journalist, educator and diplomat who became known simply as Amado ("Beloved") Nervo. Born in 1870, he died in 1919 and is interred in Mexico City.

This was a luxury location for the vet team and pet owners - a large garden with benches and chairs for pet owners and a large, air-conditioned classroom for surgery and recovery.  Lines began to form at 4 AM. While we regret having to turn people away as early as 6 AM, there is a great sense of gratitude we feel for responsible pet owners.  At the beginning of our program 7 1/2 years ago, we often went door to door asking people to let us sterilize their cats and dogs.  Many declined.

STERLIZATIONS AT CLINIC IN VALLE DORADO -  September 23-26: 

Male dogs - 22; Female dogs - 56; Male cats - 26; Female cats - 45  TOTAL:  145   PLUS

1 pregnancy (aborto) terminated for 1 dog with 6 fetuses.

DONATIONS AT CLINIC IN VALLE DORADO -  1,820 PESOS

Dr. Pacheco y  Dr. Poli - Valle Dorado
preparando para cirugía - Valle Dorado

The local government (ayuntamiento) provided approximately 7,000 pesos worth of sutures and meds, paid the extra funds for out-of-town clinic directly to Dr. Poli, and provided daily lunches for vet team. Thank you to Jaime Cuevas, president of the municipal government for his enthusiastic participation.

The clinic in Valle Dorado was made possible by the generous donation of $10,000 US from Sharon Tognietti and Sarah Weber.  This will underwrite costs for 5 5/9 spay/neuter clinics.


COLONIA DEL MAR is located high up in the green hills about 15 minutes northeast of centro Vallarta.  Doña Rocio offers her restaurant (pozolería chilpancingo) terrace location to us annually.  Views of the far away bay are splendid. A friendly blonde Lab mix was wagging his tail in front of the building when I arrived.  He was unaltered and had a large, raw tumor on his neck.  No way to tell if he is homeless or has an owner. I opened one of the small bags of kibble we give to those in need and gave it to him.

It was very much a cat day - thirty-four of them - and only two dogs.  At 8:30, the last to arrive was a white- haired, blue-eyed  man with his matching cat "Gringa" and her three kittens. Due to a miscommunicaton, the owner returned, but only took home the mother.  Kittens are beautiful and for adoption at AngeliCAT via FB.  An attractive,  handsomely tattooed young couple brought in a rescued cat and her six kittens in cardboard boxes.  The wife spoke perfect English that she had learned in school,  and offered to help collect used towels and sheets needed for recovery tables.

 



STERILIZATIONS AT CLINIC IN COLONIA DEL MAR -  September 30-October 3:  

Female dogs - 32; Male dogs - 18; Female cats - 63; Male cats - 31  TOTAL:  144

EDUCATION PROGRAM:  Due to Covid-19, on hold until classes resume. 

Walking by the plaza one morning, I noticed the polite young homeless man I normally see cleaning the beach in front of the fish market.  He was waiting in line for Angels Kitchen breakfast donations.  His pretty dog Lola was with him, and in a cardboard box, her eight three-week old puppies struggling to get out.  The man said he was "taking them for a walk."  They are currently living in a large plastic bin at the fish market. When I first noticed Lola was pregnant,  I offered to take her to be spayed.  Her owner declined, because "everyone wants one of her puppies."  He gave me his word that I take Lola and her family to a free clinic at eight weeks of age. Two weeks later, he had given one of the little puppies away and asked if I knew anyone he could sell the others to.


Joven que vive con su perra "Lola" y sus 8 bebés (hoy 7) en la playa frente de la pescadería del malecón a un lado del hotel Rosita. Me prometió que yo podría llevar la familia para esterilizar a 8 semanas, pero no es así.  Está regalandolos a 5 semanas de edad.  Lástima - así crece el problema grande de sobrepobulación.

Unwanted dogs and cats are abandoned,  discarded, starved, become diseased, struck by vehicles and are sometimes abused. And they continue to breed.  Sandra Hernandez, who lives in San Vicente, Nayarit, sent me the very sad photo below, asking for help. She had been feeding the dog that often shelters from the sun and rain under a car.  Neighborhood boys were abusing him,  as well as the homeless mama dog and her nine puppies living on the same street.  This image is a familiar one, and there are worse cases.  A free spay/neuter program does the most good for the most animals.  It prevents future suffering.  
Ahora se llama "Cacho." Callejero en San Vicente, Nayarit - y habían más en la misma calle - incluyendo una negrita con 9 bebés A Dog´s New Life en Bucerias rescató todos el día 25 de septiembre.  Tuvieron con amputar la pierna infectada del perro.

A Dog´s New Life responded immediately to PEACEAnimals´ SOS for help.  The starving male dog and homeless black mama dog and her 9 puppies were picked up the same day.  All dogs now safe at the excellent shelter in Bucerias.  Unfortunately, the male dog´s infected rear left leg could not be saved, but his life was.  He has been named "Cacho" and confirmed by vet to be healthy and approximately three years old.  Leg injury probable result of having been been struck by a car. 

Mamá - ahora nombrada "Sadie" -  rescatada con sus 9 bebés. Niños del barrio estaban torturando la familía y el perro cáfe abajo.  Ya todos están seguros en el refugio de A Dog´s New Life en Bucerias y para adopción.  

The mama dog, now named "Sadie," and puppies are all healthy and will be available for adoption in a few weeks.  ADNL is a registered non-profit (AC) in Mexico and under the umbrella of  Banderas Bay Charities, the same 501 (c)(3) PEACEAnimals is under.  If you would like to help these new arrivals:  https://www.adogsnewlife.org/donate  



Nueva rampa en el punte del río cuale

BEAUTIFICATION!  A new ramp to the isla Cuale was recently installed at the vehicular Cuale bridge. Walking east on the island, a dramatic transformation has taken place.  No longer scrabbly, rutted and uncared for empty spaces, but lovely lawns,  plants and cement pathways that wind past the statue of John Huston to the Isla Cuale cultural center.   No cats currently in sight due to work being done on the island.  This is a popular location for cat abandonment.

Isla Cuale- mejorandola

The very beautiful Bay of Banderas is a 42-mile horseshoe-shaped bay shared by the states of Jalisco and Nayarit. Over 3,000 feet deep, it is one of the ten deepest bays in the world.  Some believe it was formed by a volcano, but it´s an extension of a canyon that runs from Banderas valley or Ameca Valley.




THE FANTASTIC BROCKMANNS OF BANDERAS BAY 
         Pipo Brockmann- artist de Boca de Tomatlán                                                             

Boca de Tomatlán, 11 miles south of Puerto Vallarta, is where artist Pipo Brockmann lives in his home hanging over the Horcones river.  His house is filled with his sculptures (mostly dogs) and dozens of spectacular acrylic and oil paintings.  He was on the terrace sorting out some of his art when my friend Joyce Hartvigson and I stopped by.  Pipo is an animal lover and generously donates one of his paintings every year to the PEACEAnimals online auction. His art is sold at Contempo gallery in Puerto Vallarta.  Pipo´s brother, Brewster,  lives nearby with his wife Carmen in a house that perches on the rocky, jungled hillside overlooking Banderas Bay.  Brewster, like his brother, is a terrifically talented painter and sculptor plus owner/director of Galeria Olinalá, the oldest folk art gallery in Vallarta.  Brewster´s work is available at his gallery and shown at Galeria Pacifico in Vallarta and Maco (Hannah Waxman Design) in Punta de Mita.

Art is a family affair for the Brockmanns.  In addition to Pipo and Brewster,  their mother, Marlee Brewster Brockmann, is a dazzlingly ethereal and prolific painter. Her work, both oils and pastels, is sold at Galeria Olinalá in Vallarta and Twentyone21 Collection in Truro, Massachusetts, a town close to Plymouth, where the senior Brockmanns reside half the year. The other six months are spent at their aerie overlooking Banderas Bay.  Marlee´s architect husband, architect Xavier Brockmann, is also an artist. His powerful charcoal drawings are available at Maco (Hannah Waxman Design) in Punta de Mita and at Galería Olinalá. The multi-talented Brockmann family supports their favorite local charities with donations of art.
