DOGS WELCOME .. just for a smile :o)

“Dogs Welcome”

A family of holidaymakers sent a letter to a small hotel which they were planning to visit.

They wrote: "We would very much like to bring our dogs with us. They are well-groomed and very well behaved.

Would you be willing to permit us to keep them in our room with us at night?"

An immediate reply came from the hotel owner :

“I’ve been operating this hotel for many years. In all that time, I’ve never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or take pictures off the walls.

I’ve never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly … and I’ve never seen a dog run out, not paying the hotel bill.

Yes, indeed, your dogs are very welcome at my hotel …

… and, if your dogs will vouch for you …

… you’re welcome to stay here, too."

Happy holidays everyone. :o)))

I really enjoyed reading this - It reminded me of our Silver Wedding Anniversary. We booked a week to go back to the Hotel where we spent our Honeymoon, in Cornwall! But this time we had an extra room mate - our beloved Labrador Jade! She throughly enjoyed herself, loved all the fuss made of her and was extremely well behaved too!!

7 May, 2012

 

Hi Tracey ..
That's a wonderful story of Jade at the honeymoon hotel :o)
Sounds like she was a very good girl and deserved all the fuss and attention !

7 May, 2012

Hello Gee ... Thanks. I like photographing my dogs when they're sleeping .. Millie would be a welcome guest .. such a good girl. :o))

8 May, 2012

 

That's such a nice reply to your letter, i have a feeling your going to have an excellent time when you go. If they can take the time to write a letter like that they must be wonderful hosts..

8 May, 2012

 

Naughty budgies might not be quite so welcome .. Lol.

8 May, 2012

 

Exactly Terra, mine would fly off with the towel rail.

8 May, 2012

 

Actually, on a more realistic note a trip to Scotland was completely spoiled for me because the Manageress came onto the coach before we left, and said " Are you all quite sure none of you have any of our towels in your suitcases?
Another time at a different hotel, the rooms were wrecked by the staff running round whilst we were at breakfast, and removing all the sheets, pillowcases and towels.
They wouldnt do this without good reason.

9 May, 2012

 

I guess hotels and guest-houses do lose many items when guests "pack" them to take home ...

9 May, 2012

 

Thanks for you comment Terra.

I had a lovely established garden & now I have moved to somewhere with less space, I will make the most of it, but I am so impatient for things to bush up.

What a great story I intend taking my pooch away & hope we find somewhere as welcoming.

9 May, 2012

 

Hi Ginny ...
Good luck with your garden, and I hope you have some happy holidays with your canine friend :o)))

9 May, 2012

 

Oh that is so funny and yet so true!!

9 May, 2012

 

I've just realised it wasn't a letter to you Terra, I'm so thick at times :-(

10 May, 2012

 

Hi Bill ... Long time since I had a holiday ...
but sunny days in my gardens are good compensation :o)

Hello Dotty ... I agree... Though I remember when I was visiting a friend, and the table had been prepared for teatime, Bonsai my Welsh Terrier sneaked up and stole a slice of bread off a plate !

10 May, 2012

 

Lol Lol Lol TT, just seen this xxx

11 May, 2012

 

Hi Annie ...
Conker is good at packing his own suitcase ;o) xxx

11 May, 2012

 

I always used to find beagle hairs in my case when I arrived, she used to like to leave me a reminder :o))

11 May, 2012

 

Lol. Truffle likes to leave hairy reminders everywhere ! :o))

11 May, 2012

 

:O))))X

11 May, 2012

 

Need something to smile about after all the rain and wind Tt, love the pic of Conker showing his little mouth and what a beautiful coat too, looks like he hasn't a care in the world. Young Truffle always looks carefree:-)
