Flamingo/Potrero News

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. Park on either side of the business complex and walk to the back of the building to find both new stores. For information, contact Atocha’s María Luisa Borges at 2653-9060 or marialuisa@atochacr.com, or Bermuda’s Abby McDonald at 2653-6811 or stabby@bermudacr.com.
