here a horse, there a horse, everywhere a horse horse

cici and i are in vacaville, ca… at a horse ranch place motel… it’s kinda cute and there is a horse riding school plus a dog park within less than five minutes away… and many cats at the motel, thankfully that cici has not seen, but she has smelled them…  🙂

they are renovating the motel rooms and it is supposed to be noisy but so far has not been…

she played with a bunch of dogs, mostly puppies, a pittie, a viszla, rottweiler and some mixes… we miss the morgan hill dog park though, much nicer with green green grass…

vacaville is on hwy 80, next to fairfield, on the way to dixon and sacramento…

we stayed one night at the super 8 motel in dixon and it was ok but overpriced at $65, they gave us a noisy room outside the ice machine and when we came out in the morning there was a kitty cat on top of the desk and cici went nuts barking at 6 a.m. plus the kitty decided to come over and say hi and gave cici’s nose a scratch… what a fiasco !

we usually stay at the red roof inn in dixon but they were completely full…

actually happy to have found a weekly rate at this ranchotel, resting and vegging out… there is a panera’s bread bakery nearby, where I am now online, a safeway, trader joe’s and all the usual amenities, plus the ranchotel is very quiet and rural at night… yay …

monterey was crazy with the u.s. open golf tourney and the motels and hotels even in gilroy had doubled and tripled their rates, yuck…

soon it will be happy fourth of july, amazing, what a weird summer this has been… it is very warm, hot here, but we have a/c so it does not matter much…

we still need to explore vacaville to find out the doggie places here, besides pet smart and petco… there are probably fun stores, and napa is not that far, maybe half hour away, with pet food express…

just figured out that cici has been a happy participant (mostly) at 11+ different dog parks: Carson City, Nevada (doesn’t really have a dedicated dog park), Fresno, CA, Irvine, CA, Palm Springs, CA, Morgan Hill, CA, Monterey, CA, Half Moon Bay, CA (two of the wealthiest communities with the saddest excuse for dog parks ever), Fort Bragg, CA (Mendocino), Vacaville, CA, Idyllwild, CA, Cambria, CA and Carmel beach… and she has played with more than 500 doggies… yikes !
