Wire dog crates . . . tennis balls — anybody?

It would be a huge favor to our household if you would give or sell a medium-size dog crate. Not an airline crate, but one that looks like this (I’ll try to put a photo below). If the photo doesn’t take, just understand I don’t want plastic anywhere, just plain wire, with one or two doors and a slide-out tray on the bottom. The dimensions should be approx 36 inches x 28 inches x 25 inches (90cm de ancho x 70cm de alto y x 62cm de profundidad). The size approximates what a Labrador retriever might be comfortable in.

I could also be talked into a smaller crate for a second, smaller dog.

And still, always, looking for tennis balls (the pro kind, not the kind sold in pet stores).

Thanks so much.

Ayurvedic massage for $25 (promotional rate)

Give yourself time to relax your body, your mind and your spirit.

It is a pleasure for me to serve you- from next week I will be working at the new Rumisol Yoga Therapy Room located in Remigio Tamariz and Agustín Cueva.

Abhyanga is a traditional massage from India, it uses natural medical oils with various plants and extracts. According to Ayurveda, this type of massage aims to balance the energies that flow between the body, the mind and the spirit.

It is one of the most complete massages since it covers each part of the body, carrying the medicine of the plants through carrier oils, to help relax the body and mind, activate circulation, relieve tension and eliminate toxins. Additionally, it targets specific energy points to help heal our emotions and bring clarity and well-being.

A study says you can get COVID-19 outdoors

With the risk of contracting COVID-19 in well-established indoor places, the little contact allowed with friends can be, for example, to exercise outdoors.

Researchers say contagions can occur outdoors, but the chances are greatly reduced.

One study found that two men in China talking face to face for at least 15 minutes was enough to spread the virus.

If someone is infected, perhaps inadvertently because they have no symptoms, they will release the virus by breathing, especially if they cough.

Some of that will be transported in droplets, most of which will quickly fall to the ground, but could reach your eyes, nose, or mouth if you are six feet away.

So the advice is to avoid being face to face if you are so close.

The infected person will also release smaller particles called aerosols.

Indoors these can accumulate in the air and be a hazard, outdoors they should disperse quickly.

The best way to protect yourself, according to the World Health Organization is to use KN95 masks with a valve, the only ones that truly protect and do not allow any contaminated particles to leak out.

I am Andrés Guillermo, authorized distributor for Cuenca and Azuay of these masks, imported from the USA, comfortable, light, adaptable to any face, their use does not cloud the lenses, they can be used by children or adults. I sell them by unit or by box of 20 units. Laminated to avoid manipulation. Contact me WhatsApp 099 647 2877 or call me, free home service.

Recommendation for Diana Vera, medical facilitator

Diana facilitated my recent operation and we don’t know what we would have done without her. She handled everything from making the IESS appts and accompanying me, going through referral red tape, helping with my pre-op labs and cardiologist, X-ray and sonagram, IESS surgery approval, hospital registration, being on hand during the procedure, checking in afterwards, being there for hospital release and being in contact with the surgeon every step of the way. My wife and I didn’t have to do anything but show up. Seeing the hassles she had to put up with, we would have been so exasperated.

I had to return to the hospital a few days after my surgery for what turned into an emergency follow up surgery which Diana walked through the ‘after-the-fact’ approval process. We’re thankful she was able to get it all approved.

We highly recommend her diligent service.

She was a godsend, giving him constant care and giving me peace of mind, as well as a 12-hour break from the hospital every night. Her overnight charge was very reasonable. We are so thankful that she was able to attend him.
