Also, they have these prickly things growing out of the ground and you really need to stay away from them. Mom said they were cactus - does that mean they're a kind of cat? They can poke you and it kind of hurts (just like cats)! Cooper was going to pee on this cactus, but decided not to!
The ground is getting dustier and rockier, too, so it’s a little harder to walk on than the grass at home. But we’re getting some good exercise. Lots of trails and rocks to climb on in the park!
There aren’t as many trees as the places we visited before – especially not the big shady trees we’re used to. But they have lots of little scrubby trees and we can pee on those just fine.
If you're visiting Santa Rosa, be sure to check out Santa Rosa Lake State Park. Get some info here, too, before you go - http://www.newmexico.org/explore/state_parks/santa_rosa.php
But please don't tell 'em you saw us without our leashes on! We do NOT condone this kind of behavior! It's our Mom and Dad's fault! We begged them to put our leashes on, but they said it was okay for just a minute because no people were around. We're innocent - we swear!
