Friday, December 12, was the Peanut Pet Shelter Benefit Raffle here in Playa. Chris Bolister played guitar all night long to everyone’s delight, it is good to have him back in town. Tickets were each 50 pesos and prize winners for each treasure were drawn from a box holding all the corresponding stubs. It was cold that night and I was lucky to win a blue sweatshirt that I promptly claimed and wore for the rest of the evening. There were also bar tabs at various local haunts, weekend stays at a couple hotels, dive sessions, and all sorts of wonderful donations from merchants in the area. The event was held at the newly renamed P G Sandbox on Calle 26 and Ave. 1. A good time was had and the Shelter gained significant aid.
The next day was also cold, so rather than washing at the regular Dog Wash we picked ticks from about 70 dogs and puppies and applied medicines. A good group of workers arrived, so there was time to spend cooing over and cuddling some of these adorable dogs. See them at: www.playadelcarmenpets.com.
