Once again, the real job (i.e., the one I get paid to do) took me to the nation’s capital for a business trip. I rarely travel without my dogs. In fact, the only time I travel without my dogs is on these business trips. While dog-friendly accommodations are available, I know the dogs wouldn’t be happy holed up in a hotel room all day while I’m at the office taking care of business.
During the drive down, traveling on turnpikes and busy Interstate highways, I saw only one dog who had stopped with her person at a rest stop. One dog in 500 miles – that’s just not enough dog for me! I arrived in DC feeling dog-deprived and yearning for some canine company.
Luckily, my colleague (and fellow dog lover) lives in the same neighborhood as my hotel, and she filled my need for a doggie-fix by bringing her dog Bo with her for our dinner date. We found a restaurant with outdoor seating that happily welcomed Bo and brought him a nice cool bowl of water.
Isn’t he adorable?
