- Wedding: October 2011
So, a month ago, before our wedding, hubby surprised me with an overnight stay at the Stanley Hotel (for any of you who are not familiar, its the hotel that inspsired Stephen Kings The Shining) and the next afternoon a 2 hour horse drawn carriage ride. I am/was super stoked because the Stanley is a very historic hotel, supposed to be haunted, with guests seeing and experiencing paranormal activities, etc. Its like a ga-billion years old and I am excited to get to spend the night there since we took the Haunted Ghost Tour back in early October. Its a gorgeous old hotel!
We are booked up and have reservations to check in this Friday afternoon, sleep over Friday, have a nice romantic breakfast, late check out, our 2 hour horse ride, then head home. The plan weeks ago was to get a friend come and spend the night to take care of and walk our 3 dogs. We have my beloved Moose, a 1 yr old Rottie, we have Logan, a 10 yr old Akita (that hubby has had since he was 8 weeks old) and Lelo, an I dont know how old blue heeler because hubbys ex dumb ass dropped her off on him years ago and dissapeared. So, our pups are all used to 3 walks a day. One at 4 or 5am *yea, hubby is the nut that does that, and has been since he has had Logan) and I do an afternoon walk when I get home from work, and hubby and/or I do a quik little neighborhood stroll before bed. We had asked our Girlfriend, who has dog sat for us before, to come sleep over Friday and walk the pups and she was going to do it..until..she had change in her plans, and now she cant. So hubby then moved on to ask a dog walker/sitter that we had recently hired from the doggie daycare that Moose used to go to when he was too little to stay home all day alone. Well, she works a night job at a bar, so she cant do it. So i said to hubby, OK, lets board them overnight at the vets, where Moose stayed for a week in February while we went to Cancun. She is also the dogs vet, so they have met her. Well hubby is like NO I cant board Logan. So I am like well why not?? He says “Because he is 10”. So him and I have this conversation back and forth where he is saying its because Logan is 10 and he has only ever been at home and I am like well soo, why does that matter? All dogs have anxiety when their humans leave them, and it sno greater for Logan than it is for any of our other dogs! Besides, she is a great vet, who we love dearly and trust, and the 3 of them will be together and its for one stinking night! So I said to him that he apparently doesnt care that Moose gets boarded for a whole dayum week, but Logan cant go for one night? WTF! He then went on to say that its an emotional thing and that he never boarded him and I should respect his feelings about it. So I said OK what about my feelings? We have a scheduled trip to go away for the night and now we cant go because he doesnt want Logan to be boarded?? I also asked him about our honeymoon in May that is a 7 day cruise. What, if we dont have coverage for Logan we cant go?? Thats total frikken BS! I am soo aggravated and feel dissed over what I really think it a load of shit. I cant see the logic behind him not wanting to take Logan because he is 10. Screw it, at this point, I dont care if he cancels the whole dayum thing.
