The Laguna Madre Humane Society's annual "Isle-Ditter-Dog" event is coming up on Jan. 26 at Louie's. I have read how your dog Wags has won his division several times. I am thinking of entering my dog in the race and wondered if you would be willing to share any tips for improving his performance.
Finally, I would encourage everyone - including non-dog owners - to come out to this event and contribute if you can. There will be a lot of fun stuff for everyone happening in conjunction with the race. The Port Isabel Animal Shelter is a no-kill facility that depends on community support for its funds... volunteers are always appreciated as well.

Another one from the FAQ (frequently asked questions) file:
Hello Ms. Feets,
Our family (me, wife, two kids under 10) are planning a trip to the island in March. Yes, I know that is "spring break crazies" time but we are going to tough it out. My question is - where do you suggest we stay? We want someplace nice and on (or at least close to) the beach, but really don't want to be in the thick of the youngsters if we can help it. Any and all suggestions appreciated!
This is a really well-written "ask sandy" question. Polite, specific, brief and to the point. The only problem is that - much as I would like to - I can't answer it. I am also guessing that it is not the last time that I am going to get asked this question.... and it sure isn't the first time. Someone out there - maybe YOU? - has an answer for this nice man, and I would like to help you find each other.
If you are a property owner or manager who has one or more units to rent during spring break but not to spring breakers, please employ one of the many contact options listed below to provide me with a brief description - (location, occupancy limitations, web-site link -if applicable, and contact info) and I will do my level best to match you up with the non-spring breaker of your dreams by posting it on a soon-to-be-created page at SPIonline.com.
There are five (5) ways to submit your questions/comments for future Ask Sandy columns: In person; by phone (761-6222) or fax (761-8930); the US Postal System (box 2694,spi,78597) and E-mail: (firstname.lastname@example.org).
