I hear through the BARK-VINE that there are some new DISCOVERIES waiting for me to find them in one of my favorite places...RUIDOSO! So here we come http://www.discoverruidoso.com/Ruidoso...ready to Roll with the good times!
And speakin' of rolling....look at this ol-timey Water Wheel! Right at the Old Mill. It really dates back into the history books of old Ruidoso....and makes for a pretty doggone cool photo op too, don't you think?
But first things first. I need to check into my pup-preferred hotel...the Lodge At Sierra Blanca.http://www.thelodgeatsierrablanca.com/
And take a look at THIS fine welcome.....a special dog treat goodie bag for me! Presented in fine style right upon check-in. YUP-PUP....MY kinda hotel for sure! Thanks Lodge at Sierra Blanca...you sure do know how to treat ALL your guests in fine style!
Why even us dogs get into this modern day type of treasure hunting. Oh...and here is a tip for you Jack-Traveler-Followers. I left a special suprise in the geocache box. Maybe YOU will find it! This is just too doggone fun...and it's right AT the
BUT...that's not all you'll find here! Why this is THE PLACE to hang out if you are in the IN-CROWD! While I was there (my good dog-luck!) the contestants for Miss New Mexico 2013 were contesting! And I ran into Miss Outstanding Teen 2012....the gorgeous...and sweet too! Natalie Benson from Santa Fe. Thanks for sharin' a pic with me Miss Beauty Queen....I sure do agree with those judges that picked YOU!
And from Beauty to Beast.....why I even ran into one of MY KIND who is another Travellin' Pup...only SHE has one up on me....do dog tell!
And speakin' of GO.....it's time to get rolling and GO do some more explorin' around Ruidoso. Wonder if their SHOPPING is pet-friendly? HMMMMM????!!!!!
First stop on Sudderth Avenue (that's Main Street shopping for you not in the know) at this fine jewelry establishment. Jill has been hinting around for some new jewelry...and Mitchell's Fine Jewelry might just be the spot. BUT....here's the question...ARE THEY PET FRIENDLY? www.mitchellssilver.net
But....aw-oh....all this shopping has made me hungry. Are theree pet-friendly eateries in Ruidoso? That's my next challenge. Let's check this place out...it has a patio!
But it's time to get back to shopping a bit more before the end of the day. What is THAT I spy in that window?
But a new day means new adventures....and I hear there is a new big deal at Ski Apache. And it's happening even this summer up at the Ski Area.
But there's one more adventure on the way home......I hear tell that the world's most famous bear....our very own SMOKEY BEAR is right in this neck o the woods (so to bark!), so I'm gonna check it out! I'm heading for the Smokey Bear Historical Park in Capitan...where that baby bear cub got his paws all burned in a forest fire many years ago.
But for now....it's Doggy Down Time on the way back home. Till next time.
DOGGY HUGS AND SLURPY KISSES!
