For our actual hol-ee-day TNP booked us a 3 night stay in a hotel called Trigony House. Older readers will know that I has stayed in a hotel afore, but this did not seem like a hotel. It seemed like our very own house, only we had people to bring us stuff and tell us about cool walks to go on and ask us how our day was.
Mum and TNP found the hotel by typing into google ‘pet friendly Scotland’ Now Mum beed a bit cynical cos they had lots of ‘search’ words added in to obviously make the site come up high on google, but she did not need to be. We drove up a lovely windy green driveway and seed a beautiful old looking house. We all beed a bit nervous. Was I really allowed in there? Such a fancy looking place?? As soon as we got out the car we got greeted by this little chap.
I didn’t catch his name but he liked me a lot, I didn’t be too sure, it beed a bit overwhelming for a sensitive sheltie like me. He followed me into the gardens so I could go wizz. It looked very pretty and peaceful with lots of flowers.
Then we went inside and got our key. We had two rooms, cos when we phoned up they beed very full when we wanted to come, so we was gonna has to switch rooms. We thought it pretty cool that they made the special effort for us to come on the days we wanted.
Mum REALLY liked this thing in the lobby.
She made me do posings!
I got to go up them stairs to go to my room, there beed a cat ornament in a window on the way up which I liked to stop and sniff at. I liked to lead the way to the room, I think Mum and TNP woulda got lost without me. Other times we went past all the downstairs room, like the kitchen and bar to get to our room the back way. I liked that way too cos I got to stick my nose into the kitchen.
We met a nice lady who beed the cook and smelled lovely who tooked us to our room. Mum says all you other dog peoples will agree that sometimes if you try to go to places with a dog people treat you kind of like a leper, so it be so nice to go somewhere that not just ‘allows’ us, but encourages us too!
Here was our room, we had a ‘superior’ room, cos well, you know, I a superior kind of dog! See that basket right there? That mine.
Although I very fussy so didn’t like the biscuits but it had a cool walk guide in it which we did.
It had lots of nice old furniture that Mum liked. There beed a cool space between the sofa and the bed that I decided would be my bed. At first I got a bit barky cos I could hear other people, but I soon got used to it. I got to eat some ‘nature diet’ packs instead of my raw food, I ate it in the bathroom.
Plus we did so much pawsome walking that I got so tired out. The first place we explored was some cool woodlands and fields right near the hotel. I got to be off my lead pretty much the whole hol-ee-day! The peoples talked lots about the view, but I liked the good smells best! It all be so interesting I did not even need to do bark bark barkings. (Translated, that means, THROW THE BALL!)
