Housesitter, Writer and Photographer, Patricia Evelyn Walker

You may have read some of the articles I have written for Access under my middle name, Evelyn. I try to keep a low profile and focused on the information in the posts but this time I decided to write a little about myself. I also take the photographs for the articles. I have had a lot of fun over the nineteen months since I started with this wonderful group. I also spend time doing house sitting. I love to stay in other places and take care of different animals. It keeps my life exciting.

I love living in the Lakeside area. I have been here for five years now. I have developed a small group of friends and I have been living in the same little casita for all this time. I like to return to my own place after staying in other homes. I will house-sit long or short term. If you are interested in my service, please e mail me at: Petwalker40@yahoo.com

I decided to put on some of my favorite dog and cat photos. I hope you will enjoy them too.

Dogs and cat are so curious. They make no pretenses about their interest in people. It is all out in the open.

The Lakeside area is a great place for dogs and cats. The street dogs look much better off than in other towns I have visited in Mexico. The weather isn’t that bad here for them and people genuinely are concerned about their welfare. Here are some street dogs.

You may have seen the above street dog hanging out in the plaza in Chapala. The man who sweeps up the plaza sometimes has bones for the street dogs.

There are many places here that welcome dogs and cats. The Lake Chapala Society almost always has people around with their dogs. Several half wild cats also live on the LCS grounds. They are brave enough to chase the dogs.

I love to take photos of animals, children and older people. Here are a few of my favorite.

The three photos directly above were taken at the Wednesday Market. Anita’s Animal Shelter is there every week with dogs and cats. It is a great place to shop for your pet. I have nothing but good things to say about Anita and her helpers. They do a great service for the animals here.

There are a lot of great places here to walk your dog or dogs. Every town around the lake has a malecon and that is a popular spot for dog walking.

If you don’t feel like walking, the dogs always enjoy riding in trucks or cars.

The last photo is of Chico. He belongs to my landlord but whenever I am back at my casita, Chico spends all this time with me.  I love this little dog.

I hope you enjoyed these photos. I had fun taking them. I love living here and sharing my world with others. Dogs and cats give me so much pleasure and comfort. They are so genuine and open and loving. Do you want to be loved unconditionally? Then get a dog or a cat.  I have also been writing a blog for several years about living here. Many of these photos came from my blog. It is: MexicoDailyLiving.blogspot.com

    Seeing all these healthy and contented animals in the chapala area is encouraging to me. I am a retired woman considering a move to this area which I visited several years ago. I am trying to sell my home in Ohio to make the move possible, but the market here is very slow. My main concern, aside from finding a good retina specialist where ican continue with regular treatments for macular degeneration, is getting my dog, Rufus, there and finding a place to live wherehe will be happy. While i wait, I am researching and I find this website and all the articles, tips and suggestions a huge help. Thanks for the wonderful pictures and the comments.

      HI Joanna, I thought I had responded to your comment but I don’t see it here. There are good eye doctors here. Don’t worry about that. I hope you will check out this area. It is very pet friendly. Patricia Evelyn Walker

    Hi Patricia,

    My husband and I live in the Okanagan in British Columbia (Canada) but are thinking we would like to come to Lake Chapala or Ajijic area and rent for awhile.

    We have two small Yorkshire Terriers – and it seems that not many rentals allow pets or they don’t say.

    Can you give me any advice on where to look or a good rental contact?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi Gloria,

      There are many rentals that accept pets. My best suggestion would to start searching on our site for you desired rental and contact the listing agent for that rental with any questions you might have. To get started just go to the “Browse Properties” in our main menu and click for rent, this will display all the listings that are for rent in the Lake Chapala area.
