Well, Jason and I had to go to the Marine Corp Ball yesterday at Myrtle Beach (2.5 hour drive from our place/base) and decided at the last minute that we were going to stay overnight. Since it was way too late/expensive to board Loki for a night and since I don't really like boarding kennels (too many dogs in cages, little to no time out of the cage, etc), we just decided to take him...
It was also too late to book a room at the Sheraton for the group rate, we decided to stay at La Quinta which I think was the only other pet friendly hotel in the area (as in, no extra fee to have Loki with us)
I would've preferred the Sheraton for $79 a night rather than La Quinta for the same price.. but oh well. I'm thinking there would've been nicer stuff at the Sheraton for Loki to destroy, so La Quinta was a good choice. But next year, we're definitely doing the Sheraton.
I don't know if I really want to bring Loki next year. He didn't want to sleep all night, and kept running around the room carrying stuff onto the bed (think, his food bowl, stuff he pulled off the tables, toilet paper, etc.). He also chewed up a remote control and a whole roll of toilet paper (which left a HUGE mess). He's not usually that bad at night, but I guess last night was just bad because he was in a new place and we had to lock him in the bathroom for about 4 hours while we were at the ball.
