Isla's Furry Friends

Our furry friends own a piece of our hearts, and there are so many furry friends to love on Isla Mujeres.

Vivian's cat (she feeds her) at Qubano loves this particular table.  If she has to relinquish her seat for customers, she curls around the legs of the chair.  Pretty kitty!

This cat has found a sweet spot for a game of I spy.  Or maybe she's just showing off for my camera.

Come on!  Let's go for a ride!  Frenchie evidently loves wind in his ears.

Peluche loves to stick his head through the star at his home on the malecon when people pass. 

This is Cuba, Vivian's famous talking dog.  You can view Cuba's line of videos on the Qubano Facebook page. He's a sweetie!  

The cute little chihuahua resides at the book/magazine store on Juarez just south of Mogagua.

These little dogs love to hang in their courtyard out in the colonias.

January is winter on Isla Mujeres, so this fella's sporting a t-shirt on the stoop.

And then there's Toby.  A friend told me everytime he goes to the gym on Isla, he comes back and there's a dog in his cart. We were at El Varadero (next to the gym) with friends one afternoon and sure enough, we came out to a dog in the cart.  Toby's a pussycat, but he could not be persuaded to move.  Someone from the restaurant came out to assist.  She said, "That's Toby!"  Golfcart = sofa.

This is one of my favorite Isla dog photos from a few years ago.  A friend titled it Waiting for Godot. He's the strong silent type.

My favorite dog's in the sidebar of this blog.  That's Saby.  She was quite the character and it's almost two years since her death.  Not sure I'll ever get over her!

She loved to snooze behind the oleanders.

And never turned down a ride in the car and a family vacation.

She hated the pool, but loved a good photo op!  Does this suit make my back look hairy?

Saby -- in our hearts forever.

The tea drop shaped island of Sri Lanka is home to many beautiful beaches. Still not as commercialised as some of the other beach destinations in Southeast Asia, it boasts of emerald waters and uncrowded, pristine beaches lined with palm trees, that could be straight out of a postcard. Instead of the beaten down path, plan a visit to one of these beach resorts in Sri Lanka, for a romantic holiday that you would remember for a long time to come.
