~In Memory of Pico Nin~
Our sweet Indian Summer "mascot" Pico Nin peacefully passed away on the afternoon of November 17th, 2015, at the ripe old age of 17.He will always be loved and always be missed, but we choose to remember all of the joy he brought to us, and many of our customers over the years.
Rest in peace Pico, always loved....never forgotten.
Pico Nin ( Italian for "Little One" ) came to Indian Summer in the Spring of 2000. He was left at the Santa Fe, New Mexico Dog Pound by his owner that was moving and no longer wanted him. He was on his last day at the pound, scheduled to be euthanized at 11 a.m. the next morning. Jill's late aunt Betty and uncle Tony, who were well known in Santa Fe for rescuing hundreds (if not thousands!) of strays over the last 80+ years, saw him, and called Wes and Jill in Salt Lake City to see if they would take him.
We arrived the next day and found what had been described to us as a "Yorkie"..... appeared to be more of a "Dorkie" (Dog and Yorkie!)...but who could resist that feisty little confident bark, and those big brown eyes. Pico immediately became a "fixture" and a favorite at Indian Summer, helping out, and getting right in the middle of things, as you can see in the photos below!
