staying in Chilliwack with dog...

Just a word of warning...we're picking up our 19' on June 23 and just booked at the Best Western (recommended by Crystal) for the night before our orientation, and 3 months out got the last pet friendly room. I have no idea how many places take dogs, but was surprised to only find one room left....Karen

The 2 times I was there I got the feeling they pretty much try to accommodate everyone with dogs. The rooms are towards the back away from guests without pets and, to my surprise, have 2 king size beds, one for you and the other for Dawg, (that's what Gonzo thought).

We stayed at the Best Western with Murphy-the-Dog. It worked well. The pet friendly rooms seem to be on †he south side of the motel, and when you take your dog out for a walk in the evening you can walk down toward ETI and see who†*is happening. Murphy and I took our evening walk around 8:00 PM and ran into Tammy who was just leaving work. Made me happy that I no longer work long hours. :-)

My Newf, Molly, gives a "paws up" to Best Western, as well. She was bored to tears by the time we got to Chilliwack, hanging out the window, barking her head off, and traumatizing the locals. "Pet Friendly" isn't a sure thing when your dog weighs more than your wife; but Best Western was fine with her.

We walked Molly down toward ETI; but it didn't look like she was going to get along their dogs.

We stayed at the Vedder River Inn with two dogs when doing our delivery. Restaurant and liquor store across the street, and a great trail system along the river about 1/4 mile up the street. After five days in the car, we took a looong walk on the trail.

That's because ETIs dogs are working dogs, not pets. They spend their day in the office with Tammy. At night, they walk the storage yard protecting all those wonderful built trailers. When Tammy is right there, you could probably pet one of them, at night... you may lose an arm (at least). Good doggies!

Actually, mine was more the problem. While she's generally docile (and likes big boys), after 3 days in the back of my truck she was full of it and looking for trouble.

No problem, we just turned around and took a 2 hr hike down the river walk to wear her out a bit.

Our first dog was a half Newfie. Great dog. I have to wonder who gets the wearing out.
