Whilst The Old Cider House may have been voted the most dog friendly B&B in the UK a few years ago, we are always conscious that some people don’t like too many dogs.
I am always careful to make sure that people like me (or have cake) before I greet them in the lounge over a cup of tea. As most people get cake, I have to assume that they like me.
Now we do get some people wot are allergic to dogs. I have this message for you. If you don’t like dogs or are allergic to them THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU. Ian gets reely annoyed when people turn up who don’t like dogs and then complain on TripAdvisor. “Do your research” is wot he says, although not as politely as that.
We have two dog friendly rooms and usually limit the number of dogs to four. However, this weekend, we had people wot brought their dogs down wot were special guests and we had six guest dogs and me making seven.
Every dog is offered a ‘sausage breakfast’ this consists of a sausage. All dogs like sausages, although some owners think they should be on a diet; “come on – they’re on holiday for heaven’s sake!”
So we got the dogs to eat their breakfast together.
Now you have heard the expression, ‘it’s like herding cats’, well this is dogs…
