I had reservations to stay in a hotel for a couple of days.
My house was being painted and I made the reservations a few weeks in advance.
When I received the email from the hotel, I saw a disclaimer on the email stating no dogs allowed. That wasn’t the policy when I made the reservation. I contacted the hotel for more information. The desk clerk and manager told me that their policy changed on the first of the month. They were having a ton of indoor air problems and ventilation issues because of the dogs. The AC units couldn’t handle the dog hair and dander. I knew I still might stay in that hotel so I didn’t want to give the clerk any reason not to honor my reservation. I packed up my small pooch into a bag. I let my dog in the car when I checked into the hotel. My room was on the third floor and I had to walk past the lobby clerk in order to get to my room. I safely talked my dog into my purse and made my way up the stairs. My dog left a small bark just as the elevator door was opening. The desk clerk tried to get me to stop for a moment, but I hopped on the elevator and headed up to my room. The clerk knocked on my door about an hour later. I had the air conditioner running on high so it would be noisy and loud in the room. The hotel manager wanted to remind me that they have a no pet policy. I assured the man that I didn’t have any pets in the room at all.
