Home Panama First Impressions What Panama is to me

What Panama is to me

E-mail Print PDF


Life does not get much better than this. Our Golden-Doodle, Lucky-Lucky has found treasure in the waters off playa Santa Clara. 



On the beach, with her ears flying straight back, Lucky-Lucky tears around in huge five-hundred foot circles until finally launching herself into the surf. We call

her "Loco-Lucky" when she does this, time and again, until she and her buddy, J. Edgar Hoover (our new Black Lab puppy) are exhausted.

Sitting on the beach with a little white wine, we have the beach all to ourselves, and our dogs are running free... this is what Panama is to me.

I take half of the blood pressure medication I used to take in Canada down here. I wonder why?

Bring your pets - they will love it here - great English-speaking vets at a fraction of the prices back home - the vets even make house calls here! 

Yes, there are beach dogs, but we let our dogs run free, and there has never been a problem in three years. My wife does check

our dogs every day for ticks and fleas (especially if they have been cavorting with beach-dogs) and she usually finds one or two.

Advantix helps, but you still need to check them everyday, bomb the house, use flea shampoo and they still get them - but it is worth it just to see them run wild

and free on the beach.
