Did you know that there is at least one hotel in the Madison area which not only allows pets, but even has a kennel facility in case you need to (for example) go to dinner without the pet you brought with you?
After thinking about it, I can understand wanting to bring the dog. She's been with them less than six months. Her previous owners either abused her or abandoned her, or both. She's finally gotten comfortable with them, but she's still skittish around other people. And she was very unhappy when they kenneled her for a trip they took a couple weeks ago.
But it was a little odd to get called to the phone last night and asked if I had a problem with the dog coming to visit.
