While I was visiting Kentucky with my sons, I needed to find a place for Sampson to stay. He's just a little too big to fit in the vehicle for the trip...and I don't think any pet would enjoy at 16 trip in a kennel.

I decided to bring Sampson to a local pet resort and spa. I'm so glad I did. Sampson needs to socialize with others, and a good pet vacation is just what he needed.

For 6 days, Sampson stayed at a resort. Was loved and pampered...had play time with lots of other dogs, and got a bath, brushing and nail trimming.

He obviously made lots of friends during his stay, and now I'm thinking about putting him in doggy daycare. He's VERY protective when I'm around; but once I left, he was friendly with people and pets.

These pictures are from some of the great days he spent at the pet resort and spa in Sauk Rapids. This is what I was hoping would happen. Safety; security; and a mini vacation for my special buddy.

What next? I guess I'm going to have to arrange more play dates at least. So thankful to find a group of people to take such good care of my baby. Maybe next time, Mr. Bean should go along as well.
