Not My Best Day

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

It was bath day today – and I am not talking about a celebration of where we live but the fact I had to get my yearly bath. Amy and Mark took me to a “do it yourself” place which was having a fundraiser for the local animal shelter. The volunteers washed me (with help from Mark) for a $20 donation. Not a bad deal for them but not great for me. I hate baths! Even more humiliating was Amy taking pictues which I am sure she will post to my blog. Oh the indignities I suffer in order to be a good innkeeping dog....

The things I put up with to look good!

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

What I do for this place! Last night I spent 2 hours getting my dreadlocks done so I can look good for the guests. Granted they were a bit tangled and could use a brushing – but I hate having this done. Mark holds me while Amy works on my hair and I let them know I don’t like it by whining the entire time. And they got them done just in time for all this rain. My dreadlocks take a long time to dry so I don’t get to stay out too long and when it is coming down this hard I don’t like going out at all. Actually, the wind is scarying me a bit so I think I will stick close to Amy and our guests all day. The guests staying in the Packard Room absolutely love me and make such a big fuss everytime they stay – I really look forward to their visits!...

I’m Back at Work – Innkeeping!

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

I’ve had to shake off that lazy attitude and get back to work with guests here this weekend. My innkeeping duties never end. Greeting guests is my favorite part of the job; they make such a fuss over me and my dreadlocks. Amy cooked them one of my favorite breakfast this morning – the Packard House version of Croq Madame. She grills homemade English Muffin bread then tops it with warm ham, poached eggs (poached for exactly 3 minutes to make them perfect), fresh grated cheddar cheese and chopped parsley. Unfortunately there were no leftover this morning so I was left out. Sometimes being the innkeeper is tough!...

Maine Innkeeping in the Quiet Season

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

I am lazy in the quiet season, that time from when all the tourist leave at the end of October until they return in May. Oh there are some guests filtering in and out on the weekends at the B&B but it is much quieter during the winter. My owners, of course, are busy. Amy and Mark try to get all the maintenance done during this time and I am not much help with those things. They are currently painting the kitchen to get ready for the new kitchen floor. I tried helping and now have some paint in my dreadlocks which will probably never come off. The new floor will be nice – I love laying in the kitchen when breakfast is going on – I get lots of attention (“Lupi get out of the way – do you have to lay right in front of the refrigerator?) and you never know when a piece of bacon might be left over and come my way. Amy will be doing some things today to get ready for the big romantic holiday weekend coming up – we’ll see if I can offer her some help with that or maybe I’ll just curl up in front of my window on my comfy bed and dream of the coming season when everyone will be making a big fuss over me!...
