The late, great Llano dog. Please consider adopting a dog in need when you visit New Mexico. Mixed breed dogs from New Mexico shelters are the finest dogs and will outlive and out think any pure bred dog!
Fall in New Mexico is an excellent time to visit Santa Fe and see the spectacular cottonwoods near Taos or the Aspens in the mountains. The red chile is bright red against adobe walls. Come visit in this wonderful time of year!
