As we all know, Mazatlan has been in the news a lot
lately, for all the wrong reasons. Please don't buy
into the media hype. Remember, the news outlets want
ratings, and they just love to blow things way out
of proportion. Personally, I love Mazatlan and I
would go tomorrow if I had vacation time (I wish).

is Bandit, he is a border-collie cross 8 years old and this
couch is his favorite place to sleep. Every day I put the
pillows on my couch, all nicely lined up and surprise when I
come home from work all of the pillows are on the floor. I
admit he is pretty smart, when he see's us drive home he jumps
off the couch and onto his pillow (laying right beside the
sofa), or in the morning when he hears my alarm go off he
jumps off the couch makes his way upstairs and there he is
laying on the floor next to my bed, just where he was last
night before I fell asleep. What gives him away every time is
the fact he still has not figured out how to put the cushions
back on the couch or vacuum off his dog hair.
When I caught him and took this picture he had this look like
"oh mommy, don't be too mad I so cute" hard to resist that
face. He is a keeper!"
