Yes, I know that the real dog days arrive in August, but last weekend my husband and I had our own. We went - with our dogs - to a B & B in Vermont. And by the way, here's a link - my guest post from May on my friend Guilie Castillo's wonderful blog, which I don't think I ever remembered to re-post on my own blog - to explain why we once again have two dogs after our irreplaceable Murphy died in February.
The B & B was The PawHouse Inn in West Rutland, and its hook is that it caters to "dogs and their owners." To be honest, I'm not recommending the place. Neither the bed nor the breakfast was anything to write home about. But the dogs liked taking a road trip
and the inn did have a big fenced-in area for them to play
and they got to go offsite to the Vermont Country Store
and share the humans' bed, which they don't get to do at home.
So, all in all, despite the rainy weather, it was a nice little getaway.
