The bathroom, with a walk-in shower, exhibits the same level of tasteful finishes found throughout the house.
Welcome to the Palace of the Sleeping Dog
What’s that name all about? We chose it because:
A. It relates to a Santa Fe legend,
B. We love dogs,
C. No one has a greater talent for relaxing and sleeping than a dog!,
D. Our lovely building is on Palace Avenue and who doesn’t want to highlight an address like that, and
E. If your dog would like to join you on your trip, Welcome!
Now regarding that Santa Fe legend: The famous Santa Fe based novelist Richard Bradford related that when describing to visitors how to get to his house (which, by the way, was very close to where you are now, just up Canyon Road), in the absence of street signs (this was in the 1950’s) he would tell them to “Turn left at the sleeping dog.” There was a large shaggy dog who spent most of every day napping in a shady patch on Camino Del Monte Sol, so reliably that he served as a landmark.
But the point of Bradford’s story goes beyond the literal. In Santa Fe, we understand the value of going slow, of marching to the beat of our own drum, of going along with change but not too fast and not too completely, and yes, of knowing how to enjoy a fine spot of shade on a summer day.
And should you feel so inclined, you might engage in a few other canine meditations, under the gaze of the meditating dog you will find in your apartment. Is there some situation in your current life, for instance, where you might be better advised to let sleeping dogs lie?
Do you sometimes venture into places or situations unwise for anyone but mad dogs and Englishmen?
Do you pursue things doggedly? Are you currently dogged by any worries that you perhaps could let go of?
Rest, relax, take a stroll to the Plaza (5 minutes), sit on the porch with a cup of coffee or drink. Or for more ideas on how to enjoy Santa Fe, see the guest manual.
