I have an Australian Shepherd called Finnegan – Finn for short – he’s a great dog; friendly, well-behaved and adores everyone. I rarely take him with me on out-of-town trips though because finding a hotel that takes dogs is tough, if they say they accept pets, it usually just means they ‘tolerate’ them.

Whether I’m away on business, or pleasure, it’s no fun eating out every night – the novelty soon wears off and the cost these days can be exorbitant. So, eating in your room can save a few bucks and also be very rewarding – but how do you make it special? (more…)
