Facebook Live – Scott and Ingo with Pocha and Guillermina

Here, Scott and Ingo spend some time with Pocha and Guillermina at the Mendoza Ecoparque.

We are entering the home stretch for The Big Payback – and each of you have taken up the cause with great enthusiasm. There are just a few hours left to give and we have nearly reached our goal, but we’re not there yet! The fundraiser ends at 6pm central time. If you are so inclined, please click this link to give:

      I cannot tell you with certainty what the problem is. The website is run through The Big Payback organization. However, I know some payment services do not accept prepaid cards.

    Was Guillermina trained to back in and Pocha to go forward into the crates? I noticed Pocha’s back foot when it she lifted it to Scott was not looking too well. I hope it will be okay soon. You guys are great. Moving forward to freedom. So wonderful.

      Guillermina was not trained to back into the crate. That’s just the unique way she’s always chosen to enter!
