One Good Thing About Santa Fe

There are dogs everywhere. There are dogs who ride in pocketbooks, and huskies who travel in twos. There are sleeping dogs lying, and good dogs sitting patiently, and dogs looking in shop windows. There are purebreds and mutts alike. How do all the people who come to Santa Fe get their dogs there with them, I wonder? (Ok, I know the little dogs just travel in the carry-ons... but what about the others?)

I know Scout would like it here. Well, maybe she wouldn't like a couple of the really upscale shops. But she would like most of the places, and the food, and the people. And especially, I'm sure she would like the dogs.

Two sights in the plaza I wish I had captured on film: a young woman sleeping on her dog in the middle of the plaza in the middle of the day. And a big black lab, lying on its side, with a grey cat perched on top, living the easy life.

I forgot the camera in the car.

That Scout's a lucky dog.

Too bad you forgot your camera -- the mental image was nice too though!

Oh, I love the images (especially of the cat sleeping on top of the dog) ... I bet the people who bring all their dogs are driving SUVs. -:)

Well, I'm behind in blogging. So by now you are probably home and so is Scout. Resting well I hope. Sounds like you had a good vacation. I think Scout was happy too, just not at night time, poor little one. Glad there was someone who could pick her up and care for her, until your return.

Diane, as Ann Landers used to say, "Thirty lashes with a wet noodle," for forgetting your camera. Those would have been great pictures.

I'm sure Scout is happy now.

You love Scout so much, Diane, I tell ya, I almost missed her myself this week! :-) Thanks for taking us along on your vacation. Glad you had a chance to get away and enjoy a change of scenery!
