This stray dog, whom we call Feliz (which means Happy) has been visiting us since we've lived here, but in the last month or so, he's been hanging around our place pretty regularly. He does belong to someone, but his owner apparently doesn't pay much attention to him, so he is happy to visit us and our neighbours. He alternates between 3 homes in the neighbourhood. For the past few weeks, we've been finding him sleeping on a mat under one of our chairs outside our back door. We feed him every morning, he comes and goes and returns every evening... so we feed him dinner as well. We brush him and put flea and tick formula on him, remove his burrs, etc. He was becoming a fixture around here, and we were enjoying his company, as was Frankie. Well, we haven't seen him in 4 or 5 days now. No one has seen him. Everyone thought he was with the other neighbour. So, we're a little worried for him. We hope he's simply found another family who has shown him some kindness. We should know better than to get attached to a stray... they roam... that's what they do. As long as nothing bad has happened to him, we're fine with it. We're just hoping he's not injured in the forest and needing some help. He's such a sweet guy, we miss him.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
