Midsummer in New Mexico

This weekend we made a trip to Northern New Mexico, our main mission was to meet Henry’s new family in Santa Fe.  We had a lovely meeting and Henry is now happily settling in to his new life in Boulder, Co with the Huffman Family.   It was fun to meet Phoebe, the Mensa Pup, she PJ’s daughter and Frost’s sister, she sure looks like her Daddy.  Henry will have a new name in Colorado, he will now be known as “Teddy” as his Mom, Margaret, says he reminds them of a Teddy Bear.  I told them I don’t think he will care what they call him, as long as they call him for dinner!  He and Phoebe have their own blog so we are hoping to see lots of reports from them over the summer.  I miss him already but I know he will be enjoying his retirement.

Since we were in Santa Fe we took advantage of going down to spend the Summer Solstice at the Plaza. There was an Arts and Crafts festival going on so there was lots to look at.

We had great parking Karma and we found a great close parking spot to park the mini RV.  It allowed me to leave the a/c running and let the dogs hang out in the cool. I took them out two at a time and they really had a great time.  They were a big hit and just soaked up the attention. I was amazed at the number of people who recognized them as Corgis and then a few even knew they were Cardigans. 

PJ had the best time of all the dogs, but I think Bailey was the most popular since she a cute baby!

He really enjoyed the grass in the park.

I was so proud of them, lots of people, kids, feet, dogs and noise and all of them right down to the baby had a fun time and enjoyed the day. They were wonderful breed ambassadors.

One of the vendors even gave them a drink from a lovely pottery bowl she had made.  They got a drink from a piece of art.

After the festival it was time to head home and it was nice to have daylight most of the way home, it was after 9pm before it was full dark and we were almost home by then.   A nice way to welcome summer.

    That rolling in the grass looks real familiar. It is good that PJ will have fun rolling in our grass when you all come in your mini RV for our home inspection. I am looking forward to it. Teddy moved to a wonderful location; he is lucky!
