[singlepic id=733 w=320 h=240 float=left]Sam and Luke are wonderful travel partners. We had a great trip driving out to New Mexico. Everywhere we stopped we made friends. It’s just another of the perks of going anywhere with the Doodles. As usual, I got lots of pictures and played frisbee, went exploring and made some new dog friends.
[singlepic id=747 w=200 h=200 float=right]If you are in New Mexico, you should also expect to make friends with at least one alien, as well.
[singlepic id=740 w=320 h=240 float=left]There happened to be a hot air balloon festival going on at the time we were there. I took the opportunity for the Doodles to be exposed to something new, loud, colorful, chaotic, with lots of people and new dogs, too! Sam and Luke did just great. They hardly flinched, even when the big, loud blast of the flames went off to heat the air for the balloons. That’s actually quite a startling sound. No problem for the Doods! They were just doing their thing…you know, charming everyone and making friends all along the way! 🙂
[singlepic id=746 w=320 h=240 float=left]Speaking of charming people, winning hearts, and the like…I hadn’t ever considered I might have competition as the Doodles’ official photographer. As it turns out, there really are Doodle Paparazzi out there! Sam and Luke seem to take it in stride as they are surrounded by snapping cameras and adoring fans. I had to get a picture of that. I’m pretty sure this isn’t the last time we’ll see something like this happen. So now I’m trying to figure out how to secure my job…hmmmm.
There are many more photos to get to, and I’ll go through them looking for fun pictures to share. In the meantime, if you haven’t done it yet, I hope you will add your photo to the Oodles page.
Here are the rest of the photos, including some of the beautiful hot air balloons we got to see go up!
