Gudrun Jones – The Lake Chapala Ajijic Dog Lady

September 16, 2009

Don’t let the title fool you into thinking  Gudrun ‘s title is  in any way negative.

No way Jose…Gudrun Jones is a smart, compassionate, and charming lady and is typical of the many foreigners who live here at Lake Chapala Ajijic who want to give back or make a contribution in some way to a better community and a better world.

She’s also a passionate advocate for reducing the number of stray  animals that otherwise might affect the quality of life here at Lake Chapala Ajijic, Mexico.

So, if you’re an animal lover and especially if you’re a dog lover then you owe it to yourself and our furry friends to give a few minutes  of your time to enjoy this short video.

The Lakeside Spay and Neuter Center, AC, was formed in September 2001 by Diane Hazen and Gudrun Jones. The Center helps curtail the over-population of animals. Service is free to needy pet owners. Past success is due to donations and the enthusiastic support of the entire Lakeside community.

    Thanks, Sid, for both of those articles today! While I live in the city in an apartment in the USA I can’t have a dog but my daughter had 3, 2 of them have since died. My daughter was never able to have children but did she love her dogs!

    One year we experienced 9/15 in Queretaro, MX and almost got trampled to death, seriously, at the celebration. What a night and the next day too. It was wall to wall bodies in the center and after “the shout” and the fireworks started all around the perimeter, I couldn’t believe how everyone squeezed even more to avoid the sparks. Then leaving, our party was all holding hands so tight so we wouldn’t get separated. It is an experience I will never forget. We made some wonderful Mexican friends that week.

    Just wanted to say thanks again.

    Thanks Ruth, Always good to hear from you. Many years ago in Guad. at the Indeopendence celebration I was with a lady and a spark fell into her hair and her began to burn. I beat it out with my cap and she had a “Mexican War Story” to tell her friends. Sid

    Me again…

    Could you do a feature video of Gudrun Jones’ ranch – actually video the ranch and the dogs themselves and let us see what the ranch is all about. I think that would be wonderful

  • Sid Grosvenor

    Hi Joan, That sounds like a good project. I don’t want to promise to do it because both Gudrun and I have busy schedules, but I do think it would be fun to do and informative.

    So, I’ll put it under consideration at this point. Let’s see how many of our readers would like to see a video of Gudrun’s Dog Ranch?

    Add a comment here or drop me an e mail to if you like to see a video of the Dog Ranch.

    Thanks Joan. Let’s see what kind of response we get. Siempre tu amigo, Sid

    Hi Nancy, I’ll do my best to talk with Gudrun and find a time in our schedules to do a video of her Dog Ranch. I must tell you however in honesty it will be a while before I can pull it off, but will make it happen as soon as I can.

    Siempre tu amigo, Sid
