North's Big Adventure: Day One

North's Big Adventure: Day One

This will be the very first Christmas I have spent without North . . . in fact, I miss him already and I haven't even left town yet! I'm spending the holidays in Turks and Caicos with my parents and, because of the islands' quarantine laws, my little fella cannot come along. Sad. After checking out my options, I've decided to put him up at San Francisco's Wag Hotel while I'm gone. I took a tour of their facilities (and recorded this video), provided all his shot records, and dropped him off this morning. I've socialized my little one quite a bit (he always gets top marks for energy on his daycare report cards) so I know he'll enjoy his stay at this new facility. When we arrived there today, he was so busy giving kisses to everyone in the lobby and retail area, I couldn't even record him or give him a cuddly farewell. He already seems to be a big hit but, little do they know, his love and affection won't stop after I walk out. I'll keep you posted on his pawgress . . .

Aww, I know how you feel! I dropped off my Westie Milo at the boarding place and I miss him so much already. The house is so quiet and lonely without him. I hope he'll have fun - at least there are other dogs there to keep him company.

I've been considering using Wag, so I'll be interested to hear how it goes. Last time I had to leave my dog I really missed him, too, and called the boarding place every day. :(

Wow! What a place! I left Caddy with a friend tonight while I went to a birthday dinner for another friend. I think she was more traumatized than I was! She totally freaked out when she realized I was leaving, but they said she ended up loving it. North sounds like he already loves it there!

I think pet hotels are great for dogs because they're pack animals and LOVE to be around other dogs. Well, most of them anyway. There are always different personalities and anxiety issues.

Wow, the Wag hotel is even hipper than I thought it would be. I'm sure North will be fine, though I know he'll miss you.

I'm a baby, I got teary eyed reading this and imagining how you felt dropping him off! I would have been bawling dropping off one of dogs! :(
