We booked our getaway before we got Mr. Hunley and after confirming the hotels were dog friendly we decided to bring him along for the ride. And let's just say we learned a lot about traveling with a puppy and about ourselves....hah.
We left Friday afternoon and headed South to Portland, Oregon for Friday and Saturday night. We stayed at the Riverplace Hotel by the waterfront which ended up being great since there wasn't much green space elsewhere in the city for our puppy to do his business. Honestly most of our time there was spent taking Hunley out, making sure Hunley didn't have an accident in the hotel room (he did), keeping Hunley from eating cigarettes off the ground, and stopping every five feet for strangers to pet Hunley. He was the cutest puppy in Portland I'll have you know, and quite the celebrity in the VooDoo Doughnut queue.
Long story short, we gave him his first bath on this trip because he was so gross from all the city grime. It definitely made us appreciate living out in the burbs. We also stayed in the hotel more than we might have normally, which was okay because T.J. especially needed this time to rest and relax and regroup before getting back to the grind this coming month. Also, I love family naps.
