Hubby (pro sports photographer) had to go to Biloxi to shoot a bowl game tomorrow. I decided to go with him and we took the dogs (of course!) with us. I was a little concerned about Sally getting enough exercise while on just a pleasure trip. She *needs* a minimum of 30 minutes each day of good hard exercise and training or she really gets a little wacky.
I figured I could always walk them, and that would be fine for Spud (Mr. Low Maintenance), but Sally needs running, retrieving, swimming, excitement!
We checked into the hotel about 4:00 today and guess what we saw out back.....like in the hotel's back yard! A POND!!!
After riding all day (and being excellent pups), they sure enjoyed their swimming and retrieving. (Of course, I brought a couple of water wubbas with us just in case.)
And if all this wasn't good enough, after all that water retrieving and swimming, I took them one block behind the hotel and there was a big empty field. Just perfect for chuck-it! So they retrieved tennis balls until their tongues were dragging the ground. Great way to dry them off!
All in all, a really good day! Now we have two completely whipped puppies crashed here in the hotel room.
Wow! They sure lucked out, didn't they? They look like they are having the time of their lives. They must love road trips with you.

That's cool! Sounds like everyone had fun! With my luck, that would never happen..! Glad you found a way to tire them out!!
I bet that pond swim felt good after a long ride. That picture of Sally's rear with water running off wagging tail is fantastic.
Great pics! I wish I had better photo skills/eqpt to get shots like that!
Since the hotel you stayed at is 'dog friendly' and has outstanding canine amenities very close by, I really think you should post the name and exact address of that hotel!!!
This information may very well encourage a 'road trip' by some of us up here in the frozen tundra.
