The Adventures of Rohan

Rohan is one of the Innkeepers pets.  He is a boisterous and mischievous nine month old golden retriever.  Pippin is Tina and John's 11 year old black laborador retriever.  I like to call her the "old lady."  She is a sweet girl who patiently puts up with Rohan's antics.  Being responsible and loving pet owners, Tina and John made an appt. for Rohan to have his "manhood" altered on Monday.  Poor thing looked so pathetic. It's almost as if he knew what was going to happen.

Fast forward to Tuesday where shortly after I arrived at work, John came downstairs to show Tina the bottle of Rohan's pain pills.  It had multiple puncture marks in it and was now empty.  Putting the bottle out of reach and a child safety top didn't work on keeping a rambunctious 9 month old dog out of the puppy pain pills. A phone call to the vet and then Rohan is whisked to the vet's office. Thank goodness after an overnight stay and an IV to flush the medication from his system, Rohan was as good as new.

Summer has Arrived

It's a gorgeous day in Coeur d' Alene.  Beautiful, clear blue skies, light breeze and the temps are projected to get into the mid 80's today. 

On tap for today:  fresh flowers placed in the front entryway, the parlors and on the dining room tables. 

In the kitchen: fresh spiced and crumble banana bars and banana bread will be baking!  Delicious!
