I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
(see below other ways to show your appreciation)
The easiest way is with PAYPAL - Attn: LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com

DOG SEEKING NEW HOME - GoldenDoodle BELLA - Escazu

Bella is a beautiful, very sweet and intelligent, 3 year old GoldenDoodle from the USA.

VERY SADLY, her family is no longer able to keep up with her (mom and dad are in their 70's and 80's and physically for their own safety, not able to give her the walks and playtime she requires and deserves plus she lives in the 6th floor of a condo - so no yard to play in [and she LOVES to play!!!]).

The right person•special family MUST have an AMPLE yard and space as Bella is not a dog who lives outside and is NOT to be tied up.

She also deserves your TIME - to share love and attention with her (hence she will give it back to you!)

She's used to LOTS of ATTENTION and being treated like family!!
Bella is a healthy, sweet dog and loves to be with her people.

Currently she lives inside with 2 smaller dogs and is well trained and great with children and other pets.

When it's raining her mom has taught her to go in the shower inside so she's NOT the type to "do her thing" just anywhere.

Bella hair does NOT shed so she should not effect someone with pet allergies. 

A Goldendoodle is a cross-breed/hybrid dog obtained by breeding a golden retriever with a poodle.  Because poodles and golden retrievers are both highly intelligent, golden doodles are also very trainable. Goldendoodles are usually very affectionate with people and other pets. They are human-oriented dogs, and tend to develop a strong bond with their owners and companions. Most goldendoodles are calm and easy going, but they are active dogs that do require exercise. They tend to be great family pets and are known to be especially good with children.   READ A BIT MORE ON GOLDENDOODLES AT:

Dr. Bitter in Escazu is her vet. 

Though Bella is worth a lot, she is FREE to that VERY SPECIAL PERSON or FAMILY that can give her ALL she deserves (you WILL be interviewed).
