So this weekend, Muma told me we’re going away, just the two of us! Not even
annoying, ankle biting Rose could come. It was just us. I love to ride, so the 2-hour trip was a breeze. We arrived at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Amherst, Massachusetts.
But when Muma knocked on the door, no one answered! I didn’t care, because there was a lovely yard and Mum threw the ball for me until the Innkeepers showed up. Initially, Mum was huffy: “I made arrangements! They knew we were coming!” However, when they arrived to let us in, they were very nice and made a big fuss over me. I liked that… a lot!
We got situated in our room and then we went for a wonderful walk along a bike path that was near a river so I got to go swimming. I met a little dog with only one eye- he was very nice. I met Gypsy- who started to be snarky, but when she realized I was only interested in my tennis ball, swimming, and my muma, she was fine.
When we got back to the Inn, Chef P was making alfredo fresco for dinner. Muma loves alfredo. She said it was “to die for”… I got my regular dinner and a marrow bone. All was well… until: I spied a CAT! Underneath the end table! What kind of Inn is this?!
There was some hissing, swearing, and some other rude comments I didn’t quite catch, but the bottom line was that Miss Z wasn’t happy that I was there! Can you imagine?? No, neither could I.
Bed time was hard for me. Where was my bed? Muma tried to get me to sleep with her, but I didn’t like how her bed felt. It was too high up. I need to be down at floor level so I could scope out the place… If there was one kitty lurking, there might be more! Special ops and all… I finally settled down, but when I heard the neighborhood dogs barking, it was necessary that I reply. Muma was not pleased.
The next morning, Muma was getting ready for yogurt and this happened:
Muma threw things in the air, hollered and ran out of the room. The Innkeeper arrived, took one look, and said, “I’m going to need another paper towel.” Yep. It was that big. Muma wanted her money back for the room, but the Innkeepers accused her of bringing that nasty spider with her! Can you imagine? Muma hates spiders- she would never!
I went to the park with the Innkeeper while Muma was at yogurt. He threw the ball for me and all was well, until we got back to the Inn and Muma wasn’t there. I got a little anxious, so he took me outside and he read in the hammock and I lay down on the grass. Where was Muma? Did she leave me?
All things considered? I give that Inn 5 stars. Even though they had a cat who sweared at me, the Innkeepers were fabulous. Muma says only 4 stars on account of that spider. But frankly? It’s one of the nicest weekends we’ve had in a long time.
