Dogs on Loan



By Susan Farewell

Lots of hotels put out the “Welcome Dogs” mat these days. A very good thing as far as I’m concerned. BUT for those who have canines who are not exactly designed for planes, trainsdogs at hotels, Fairmont Hotels or hotels, it’s good to know that you or your kids can “borrow” a pooch.

At some of the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, there are resident dogs known as Canine Ambassadors. These sweeties make great companions for walks about town or even just for a bit of cuddling.

Two of them have been catapulted into literary fame as leading characters in Catie Copley’s Great Escape, a children’s book, published by David R. Godine.  

Catie Copley is the resident black Labrador at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston. In the story, she gets to meet Santol, the Canine Ambassador at Fairmont’s Le Château Frontenac in Quebec City.

The two have lots of great adventures exploring their respective cities.
