August 2011, Blue Sands Hotel, Santa Barbara, CA

Did you know that really good hotels provide dog houses in all their rooms?

Sometimes you even find them in hotels that don't take dogs.

Perhaps they're planning for the future, when all hotels are required, by law, to take pets (well, dogs anyway), as it would be if the world were a sensible, rational place.

As you can see, our precious trio knows a good thing when they see one, and they share.
