My wife and I enjoyed an October walk around central Oregon's Suttle Lake, reveling in the red-yellow vine maples, which, marvelously, had nothing to say about the financial meltdown that's been front page news.
Our dog, however, didn't look pleased when I asked her opinion about the "Dog Free Zone" sign prominently displayed at the Suttle Lake Resort.
Snap review: the Mino's stop/start record button is much more responsive; it's lighter, smaller, and cooler looking; the omni-directional microphone might be slightly better, but not terrific; overall, I like it better than the Ultra.
Regarding the Lodge at Suttle Lake's (a.k.a. Suttle Lake Resort) dogphobia, the number of signs disrespecting Canis familiaris is at odds with the "pet friendly" paw mark in the upper left corner of its home page.
They do claim to have pet friendly lodging, so you'd think dogs would be more welcome on the grounds. And a pet fee of $25 per animal seems a bit steep, notwithstanding the gift package offered for "your furry friend."
I just wonder, though, what a vacationing cat or ferret is going to think about opening its gift package and finding "2 doggie bowls, doggie bag, treats, and toys."
