Shhhh…it’s a secret!

Sam here – I just heard my mom and dad talking and we’re going on a road trip this weekend! I think they are keeping it under wraps because they didn’t know if I would be healthy enough to make the trip. Are you kidding me?!? Bring it on – I’m a rally dog!

I’m a pretty simple pup – I like what I like and that tends to be anywhere my parents are. I’m not too picky. My happy places are easy – on my porch, at the beach, in the truck, gram and grampa’s…well, you get the point. All that being said, I do have one fancy place that makes me so crazy happy that I can’t stand it! It’s called the Inn By the Sea and it’s in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. It’s a little bit of a ride, but not so long that I need a pee break….I can make it in one shot.

WooooooHooooo…it’s awesome there! They give me a dog bed and water bowls and treats when we check in. They even give me new poop bags that are eco-friendly because it’s a green facility. They also give me lots of clean towels because they expect me to go swimming at the beach in back. Can you believe that – they don’t just tolerate it, they expect it! The people that work there actually sit on the floor and pet me sometimes. My mom and dad like to sit in the lounge in front of the fire and drink wine… you know what that means (well, aside from the obvious)? That means I get dinner from the dog menu – they have “Meat Roaff” and “Doggie Gumbo” and “The Bird Dog” – it’s so hard to decide that I let mom and dad pick for me. And then I get K-9 ice cream with cookies on top for desert – and when I get back to the room, more treats because they have turndown service for me!

Usually when we stay here my mom and dad go out to dinner one night. While usually that would make me jealous, I love it because someone comes to our room to sit with me and Macklin. I love visitors but when the visitor is there for you and only you and doesn’t waste time talking to adults, it means constant attention which equals Love!

I need to get off the computer – just had to share because I’m so excited. I’ll keep pretending I don’t know and just be excited when we get there. I have great fake surprise tail wag – gets them every time. I’ll also make sure we take lots of pictures. The only thing that could make the weekend better is if all my tripaw friends could meet me there!

    Wow, that is pawsome!!! I wish we had a place like that around here…. Unfortunately, it would take lots of pee breaks for us to get to Maine… Enjoy your special weekend — we expect a full report when you get home!

    I am so jealous! Finchy is jealous, but not overly jealous- he doesn’t like the snow (he’s dainty since he doesn’t have a fur coat like yours). He’d like it if it was warmer. Have lots of fun!
