the critters on vacation

Many of you will not be surprised that one of my recaps of our Mexico trip focuses on all the animals and critters I saw. I am writing about what we ate, cities we visited and places we stayed, and will share those soon.

I hold most all animals near and dear, and delighted in seeing them everywhere. I know some of you can appreciate!

I took this photo upon checking into our first room in San Pancho. Looking out our top floor window, this pup greeted me from the roof next door! It was the entrance to an apartment next door, and the dog liked to hang out on the roof. He was there a lot.

Such a cutie.

While working hard swinging the morning away in a hammock, I spied a lizard couple climbing a tree.

Can you see them?

How about now?

The girl lizard gave chase.

The boy, chased.

Then he saw the paparazzi and his neck got all crazy defensive!

Maybe he was showing off for the camera?

These pretty birds were everywhere – and they sang lovely songs.

For several days we stayed in a great place in San Pancho – outdoor kitchen, sleeping area with palapa roof and mosquito netting, and a bathroom with a tree growing right in the middle! One of the walls was made up of tree trunks, open to the outside. This little guy was in that bathroom, and he hung out there for three days.

He started out on the wall, the next day he was on this leaf at the base of that tree. I’ll show more detail later about this place we stayed – it was great!

Different from the huge ones in the palm tree up there, these little lizards were all over the place. This little guy was in our kitchen.

Can you imagine how excited I was to see a dachshund?

She wasn’t always excited to see me – here she is giving me a big woooof.

The final few days of our trip, we stayed at a great B&B, complete with beirgarten. The owners lived on site, and had two dogs. What better dog to stay in a beirgarten than a dachshund?

They also had a sweet lab.

It was nice to be able to hang out with pups, when I was missing mine.

Can you believe I was lucky enough to not see one spider?
