We just learned some sad news. Hazel from Class A Greyhounds...RVing with the Big Dogs has died. :-( She was a regular reader of our blog. Hazel died in May, but we just learned of it today. Mom hasn't been reading blogs as much since Scout has been sick. She had two greyhounds and a cat. Hazel was a solo RVer. We are very sad to hear that she has passed. Mom heard that her pets have found new homes. We hope they are okay because they have to be really scared. Mom read about Hazel's passing here: RVing: The USA is our Big Backyard
The Greyhound Who Is Sad To Hear About Miss Hazel
Saturday, June 27, 2015
We arrived at the KOA in Salina around 5 p.m. We lost an hour due to leaving Mountain time. Scout did really good on the trip. Mom had been worried about how she would do and she did just fine. Do you want to know what is strange? Scout's tumor appears to be shrinking. What is up with that? People kept telling us that she was looking better and Mom and Dad both thought she looked different and today they decided it looks smaller. :::shrugs shoulders::: We don't know what that means. It probably means nothing, but it may feel better not being so large. Scout doesn't say much to me about it, so I don't know.
The campground has the biggest sign we have ever seen about cleaning up poop.
|See, it's huge!|
|It is like a billboard.|
|They have big turtles here.|
|I checked him out.|
|Yeah, I think I will leave him alone.|
|Some people wanted to pet me, so I decided it was just easier to lay down.|
|This is the dog run. We barely fit. Actually, we found out there is a really big one, but the grass was tall and it smelled like SKUNKS. Mom decided we should just move on.|
|They have buffalo here. Scout was scared of them.|
|...and another poop sign. There are several around the park.|
The Greyhound Who Had Fun Sniffing His Temporary Backyard

|The storage areas are not pretty, but the hills are nice and green.|
|This was our view from our dining room when a rig didn't block it. We used to walk up there until Mom saw a snake.|
We really hope that Scout does okay on the trip. I know Mom is nervous about it. I am supposed to be careful and not bump her. I tend to get excited when we travel. We are going home for a visit. Scout is excited to see Grandma. We then we head to Baltimore.
|Scout this past Sunday showing she is still happy. She looks pretty normal from the front, but the side view is where you can tell something is wrong. Mom said there will be no pictures posted of her from the side.|
The Greyhound Who Is Excited To Hit The Road Again

The place is called Casa Bonita.
|It looks pretty impressive on the outside.|
When you enter the building, it smells old and musky. It is dark. You enter a line where you order your food. They have an all you can eat meal that includes your choice of beef or chicken tacos, enchiladas and a cheese enchilada plus refried beans and rice and homemade sopapilla .
Mom didn't like that each person had to carry their tray to their table. The walk to the tables is long and you have to go up a long ramp. She thought for sure she would drop her tray. When you arrive at your table, there is a flag on it that you raise when you want more food. You have full service after you carry your food to your table.
|The line for food.|
|All the tables face this area which is where the cliff diving takes place and other shows. Every 15 minutes something is going on whether it be a diver, pirate show or gunfight.|
|This is one of the divers who is juggling fire. It is hard to see in the photo.|
|Here are two sopaipillas which Mom said were delicious. Honey is on the table as a topping for them.|
|The waterfall and pool that the divers use.|
|The diver is to the right of the photo. Not a good shot.|
|Kids are invited to hit the piñata. Candy is given out after the piñata breaks.|
|They have a store for shopping.|
|Another dining area.|
|The treasure room|
|Candy for kids 12 and under.|
|It is a colorful restaurant.|
We didn't get any leftovers from there, but they went out later for dinner and we got steak....again.
The Greyhound Who Thinks It Is Strange To Have People Diving While You Eat

|This is the restaurant.|
They offer a lunch buffet every day. Mom said that was perfect for them because they didn't really know what they would like. The buffet was only $10. It included a small salad bar. The one thing that Dad wanted to try was yak and that was on the buffet. They both said it was rather tough and dry. Dad tried a lamb stew that was really spicy. Mom really enjoyed the fried onions. They were not like onion rings. They were like lumps of onions that were fried. The bread they make is flat like a tortilla, but it was thicker. Why didn't Mom take pictures of the food? She is not sure. They both said the food was good, but they probably would not return as it didn't knock their socks off.
The outside is nicely landscaped. They own a landscaping business too.
Mom said she was happy they tried this place. They had driven past it many times and it is always busy. We didn't get to sample any of the food. Dad did grill some strip steaks for dinner and we had a few bites of that. It was good!
The Greyhound Who Has Enjoyed His Stay In Colorado
Sunday, June 14, 2015
Yesterday morning, we all went for a walk but instead of going inside with Joey, I jumped in the Jeep. Mom went in with Joey and told him I was going to the vet and he needed to stay behind. I am sure he wasn't happy about that. Mom brought me one of my frosty treats and I enjoyed it while we drove. We didn't have to drive too far though. We arrived at Red Rocks in just a few minutes.
|We got out and walked on a trail. I kissed another dog. ;-)|
|The sign said not to walk here, but we did anyway.|
|This is where they hold concerts. Dad saw Brit Floyd here last week.|
We were going to stop for a hamburger on our way home, but it was only 9:30 a.m. Mom said she would get me one today to make up for it. She did bring me home some rib-eye last night, so I can't complain.
I really enjoyed my solo day out. It wore me out and I slept good last night. ;-) I told Joey that I didn't really go to the vet. BOL!
|Joey being cute, I guess.|
