Schultz in the Posh Place

One more story from my move:

As I mentioned yesterday, we arrived in Atlanta in the later part of the evening.  The Pet Hotel, where our 100 pound German Shepherd, Schultz, was supposed to stay, had already closed.  We deliberated on what to do with him.

"Let's see if we can bring him into our hotel," my husband suggested.

"At La Meridian?" I asked.  "There's no way they're going to let our hairy beast in that posh place!"

My husband called.  The people at the hotel were very accommodating. We had to pay an extra fee, but Schultz was welcome to stay at the fancy hotel.

My husband walked our quadruped into the hotel lobby.  There was a party going on at the nearby bar.  Everyone was dressed up in suits and cocktail dresses.  They all stopped and looked at Schultz.  I'm sure they figured he was there to sniff for drugs or something.  He's enormous, and he looks exactly like a police dog.  

Schultz played the part perfectly. He must've known this was no place to fool around.  He followed all commands and was probably the best behaved pooch the hotel had ever seen. The party-goers resumed their festivities and we continued up to our room. 

Schultz calmly marched into the elevator. When the door opened, he "heeled" all the way to the room.  Inside, he found a nice place to curl up and promptly went to sleep.  And he didn't bark once!

  1. I'm shocked he didn't bark once! With how many treats did you bribe him?

    1. No treats. Those were still packed! I think he was just too tired to be obnoxious. ;)

  2. Good boy! He was probably more well-behaved than some of the two-legged guests.

      Yes, these GA roads can be a little confusing for a newcomer!

  6. He was on best behavior, he knew privilege when he saw it. He gets to join the 'pack' that way. Good dog.

    1. It's funny how he picked up on that, because he's usually as obnoxious as can be when we drop him off at a pet hotel!

  7. Wherever you find Schultz, you find posh.

    Love,

  9. Good job, Schultz! Maybe he's turning over a new leaf! Maybe he was impressed by the fancy hotel and it shocked him into his best behavior.
