Dog With a Blog - Pets Stay Free

Calling all Dogs!!! RUFF! RUFF! RUFF!

Dogtober at the Crystal Lodge was Amazing. I got to see so many of my friends, new and old, as I strolled through the hotel like the VIP I am. On this stay I couldn’t help but notice how my blanket was quite comfortable. I really appreciated the fabric softner that made it nice for me to curl up after a long day of hiking and adventuring with my owner. My only complaint would be the treats at the Front Desk. I mean the biscuits might not be so bad if I couldn’t smell the bacon coming from the Wildwood Pacific Bistro. What’s a lab got to do to get some meat in this place? I sat patiently in the lobby hoping someone would sneak me out a piece but it never happened. The restaurant wouldn’t even let me in to clean up any food bits that may be on the floor. It was a bit disappointing, but after talking with management I got a belly rub so I was quite happy.

Wendel and Nessy

In the past it’s been a bit of a challenge to convince my owners to bring me to the Crystal Lodge. They’ve been charging $20 a night per dog unless you stayed in Dogtober when all dogs are free. I recently got a new little sister and I was concerned my owners would never bring me back. $40 a night to bring the both of us really adds up! This is why I was so happy to hear that the Crystal Lodge has made some changes to their pet policy. Dogs now stay free!! Now my owners have no need to leave me at home. I can’t wait for my next stay this winter.

HalloweenI’ve always wanted to go cross country skiing with my owners at the Callaghan Nordic Centre. They have 30km of dog-friendly trails that I can’t wait to check out. I’ve never tried snowshoeing before, but I hear they have pet friendly trails for that as well so I might try that out as long as I don’t have to wear any snowshoes. I’m not a fan of being dressed up even if it is for some outdoor fun. Although I’m sure it won’t be as bad as the ridiculous costume they made me wear for Halloween. I’ll be sure to let you all know how it went after I give it a try. In the meantime, I hope to see you at the Crystal Lodge soon.
