There’s mucho tail wagging today in Mosquera, a suburb of Bogota Free Planet’s home city, and a huge sigh of relief from dog lovers too.
If only they could, the 30,000 stray dogs who roam the streets of Mosquera, would lick the front page of latimes.com in gratitude.
A shelter of their own to someday call home and headline news in the Los Angeles Times is the best they’ve ever done.
Bones and scratches behind the ear for all!
When BFP went out to photograph some of the sad dogs who forage for feed in Mosquera last year, we were sad to see how many there were.Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez

By Gabriel Quintero Friday, June 5, 2009
While soap opera fans the world over are watching the never-ending misadventures of “Bety la fea” (Ugly Betty), there is another every day soap opera going on in a certain Anapoima mandarino tree.
Ugly Betty, a telenovela filmed in Colombia, written by Fernando Gaitan and produced between 1999 through 2001 by the Colombian network RCN, features Beatriz Aurora Pinzon Solano, an unattractive—but very brainy woman—working for the Eco Moda company, who is constantly mocked by her prettier workmates.The Parrots of Anapoima

A love triangle, better than anything Hollywood can offer, continues in an Anapoima mandarino tree among the passionate `Paco’ `Paca’ and `Rosa’. Together forever, Paco was the perfect hubby for Paca—until Rosa flew along.
