It has been a little while since I have blogged. It is the standard ‘life gets in the way’ scenario where ‘real’ work took over and left me without the creative mental space… It seems a lot of people have been experiencing the same brain fry around me. One of my friends was so caught up in work she forgot her own birthday… Imagine!
However I have a day off after the bank holiday and felt the urge to share two rather sweet experiences that took place when Rufus and I had a little holiday.
Soooo… Over the bank holiday weekend Rufus and I took a well needed rest and checked in to a dog friendly hotel for the long weekend. It wasn’t far away but far enough to feel I was away…
I am sure a lot of dog owners will understand that they want to travel with their pup. Over the last year we have been away in my van and stayed at self-catering dog friendly lodges. The thing is I craved a bit if hotel time… With no washing up or cooking.
After reading reviews on dog friendly hotels we chose a lovely place in the New Forest. I am not going to post the name because it seems like advertising.
Well when I say it was dog friendly… That was an understatement. All of the staff made a fuss of Rufus and he had a field day. Imagine his delight at all the forest smells and… deer! He was so happy.
When it came to breakfast he was offered a lovely sausage.
What made the trip all the more exciting is all of the other pups he met and that leads me to my second story…
Ohhh I had the funniest conversation while I was talking to a fellow dog owner at about our pampered pooches and dogs being fussy eaters. Admittedly I was pretty excited to say a chef had asked how Rufus would like his sausages cooked. I then mentioned because my pup was fussy I had chicken in the van… She appeared confused and said ‘you must be a real animal lover to bring a pet chicken on holiday with you.’
I couldn’t breathe through laughing so hard…
Then it occurred to me… I look like the kind of woman who would have a pet chicken and… would take that chicken on holiday… hmmmm!
