My husband and I brought our dog on a little two night vacation for the weekend. We are staying at a "pet-friendly" hotel. When I called the only thing they told me to keep in mind was a 40lb weight limit. Well, fine...my dog is 30lbs. I booked the reservation and when we got here after driving for six hours they informed me that she cannot be left in the hotel room at all not even when crated! Who the heck goes on a trip and never leaves the room? We haven't left yet but we want to go to lunch today instead of eating room service food. Should I hire a dog sitter?? My husband said we should leave the TV on and put the "do not disturb" sign up. I'm worried we will get "found out" and they could ask us to leave. This is the silliest thing...I am never staying at this chain again. For what it's worth, she has been extremely well behaved so far...no accidents and not one peep of barking but I'm worried she will bark when we leave...anyone know of a good pet sitter in Pittsburgh??
