I want out of this whole thing

ShowMeLove's picture

I'm so stressed out about what to do with my dog while we're away for the wedding. I don't want to leave her at home for two days, that's not cool. I was/still am planning on taking her with us and just leave her at the inn while we're gone for the rehearsal dinner on Friday and the actual wedding on Saturday, but now I'm wondering if that's even a good idea. Anybody have any experience with leaving their pets in hotel rooms?

We we're thinking that we could just put the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, but do the maids even listen to those signs at hotels? I'm afraid they'll let her out or disturb her and then she won't stop barking afterwards. The killer thing here is that we'll be 30 minutes away at the rehearsal/wedding if anything should happen.

I'm just super paranoid that something bad will happen. But I don't have anyone I can really even ask to watch her...so it's like what do you do? Especially on such short notice. Why did my sister just HAVE to get married two hours drive away from here? WHY?!

I seriously don't even wanna go it's such a big mess, this whole thing. I can't sleep. I mean, it's 5am and I've been trying to fall asleep for the past hour and a half but my minds on this. This. is. hell.

No wonder I'm breaking out.

Contact Your Local Veterinarian

Your local vet is familiar with this quite common problem. They should be able to offer solutions.

Umm...

You can't just bring your dog into your hotel room, typically. Has to be a pet-friendly hotel.

If you stayed in SF, you could put them up in their own hotel while you were gone, but it's pretty expensive, heh: http://waghotels.com/

Have someone stay at your place with the dog while you're away, some friend you trust.

Obviously...

I know that it's a pet-friendly hotel, it's the first thing that I checked when I knew which hotel we were staying in.

And I don't know anyone who could watch her this weekend. That's why I'm so stressed. It's the best solution but there's no one.

i agree with elph...

your vet will probably have a few suggestions. don't freak--your dog will be fine! *hug*
a "do not disturb" sign will keep the maids from entering the room. if you really can't find an alternative, leaving your dog there should work.

Well..

We're gonna take her. I hope she's a good dog and that the maids and whomever else listen to the sign.

All of the places I have

All of the places I have stayed at with my dog had a "do not disturb pet inside" thing to hang on the door. And I would recomend bringing puppy pads in case your dog has to go while you are gone. :D Oh and leave food and water, of course.

A lot of truth is said in jest.

Thanks!

That actually puts me at some kind of ease. I hope this place is the same. I plan to feed her a good meal and take her for a walk before we head to the wedding on Saturday; hopefully she's a good little dog.

:)

search local dog walkers, somebody who can collect her, walk her for a few hours then return her to the hotel?

That is a good idea

But I'm not sure if I'll be able to do that. She's not a very trusting dog when it comes to strangers. Neither am I, though, to be honest. lol.

Hmm...

Get a doggie dress and bring your bitch to the wedding!

In a better mood now...

And yes, that would indeed solve my problem! If only I could do it. But I've got Bridezilla on my back already for a ton of other things.
