Two other things we noticed about Holbrook besides its great, grassy dog park:
--The Wigwam Motel. Once a chain of six, only three remain and one is in Holbrook. It's an actual motel where the rooms are separate tipis (not wigwams, which are dome shaped. But I read that the person who built them liked the word wigwam better than tipi). The motel was sold and then closed after I-40 went through, but the owner's children bought it back and reopened it in 1988.
--There is a street named “Bucket of Blood.” It’s named after a now-closed saloon where a poker game went bad, two men were killed, and the floor looked like... well, you get the picture. We, however, did not get a picture because we kept driving by the street without seeing the sign.

|Cooper and a friend at the dog park. The brown "dog" almost looks real, but is made out of metal.|
