Owners are needed for two loving, playful special-needs puppies. They are vision-impaired – not blind, but they don’t see as well as they should – which means that their other senses will probably develop to be especially keen. They are great pets, stay close to home and will grow to be medium-sized dogs. For information, contact Dawn Scott at sadascott@aol.com or 2654-4774.

Atocha Muebles y Accesorios and Bermuda Hotel Supply have relocated from the Villarreal Royal Palm Plaza to Paseo del Mar on the main road to Brasilito from Huacas.
