We all know that the true test of a dog-friendly lodging property is when the one and only Travelin' Jack has put it to the Pup-Test. And not just the test...but hey...here's the power of THIS dog. Not only do I review pet friendly places...but I even talk them into becoming pet-friendly! It's a doggone true fact. Why recently I had a serious dog-scussion with the owners of the Bottger Mansion B&B. This historic B&B is located in Old Town Albuquerque...and seems that the owners Steve and Kathy Hiatt didn't know that us travelin' dogs are gaining FAST in the travel arena. So after I dog-splained to them that Pet-Cations are THE THING..and that more and more folks are travelin' with their pooches....well they made the BIG DECISION to add a Dog-Friendly room to their Inn.
And of course when it was ready...who else did they call to INAUGURATE the Inn for its all-new Dog-Friendly status? That would of course be MOI, Travelin' Jack......so off Jill and I went to check her out...from top to bottom! Hmmm. Grand Entrance to the Bottger Mansion B&B, I'd say...wouldn't you?
Parlor passes the PUP test...Nice sitting area...passed my sitting test just dog-dandy..and Jill seemed to like it too!
And what's this waitin' in our suite?!? Sweets for little ol' me! How dog-phisticated is that!Yep the interior of the B&B passes the test for sure! Now...how about the garden area? PRETTY doggone important in my pup-pinion!
Aaaahhhhh now this is the life. Cool green grass, cool shade...and plenty of sitting areas for the folks too! Why what's not to like? A little R& R then we call it a day and a night-night in our suite quarters...tomorrow morning I'll tell you WHY it's called a B&B.....
But....I gotta get down to "BUSINESS" now. I came here on a 'job' ya know...and I hear through the bark-vine that Bottger Mansion has their very own DOGGIE DOOTY PARK....let's check it out okay?
Pretty Doggone NICE! A special potty area just for the visiting pooches! Hey what are ya lookin' at? Turn that camera off...you don't think I'm gonna inaugurate the park with that camera pointin' at me do ya now?
(CAMERA OFF HERE)
Okay...that's better. Done! The Bottger Mansion B&B has been dog-ficially indog-trinated by yours truly Travelin' Jack!
And now that I've done my dog-ficial duties.....if you are REAL smart....you'll check out this fine historic B&B for yourself! I dog-truly recommend it!
Bottger Mansion B&B in historic Old Town Albuquerque has just received Travelin' Jack's very prestigious 5 PAWS RATING! Now Kathy and Steve...you can add THAT to your bragging rights!
Doggie Hugs & Slurpy Kisses!
