A little over a year ago my friends, Theresa and Shane Holden, opened a dog hotel named ruff., in our hometown of Napa, CA. Theresa designed the space, and it is AMAZING.

My sister's little girl, Nita, goes for the day if my sister has to work long hours. She loves it.

Hey, dogs! Your hotel is nicer than my house.
More information can be found on the ruff. website.

Wow, they did a great job! If I am ever in that area I will have to check it out. I love the Scottie cut outs!

oh my GOSH. that place is amazing!!!

i need a dog so i can take it there. i'll borrow my mom's (who is actually mine too; she just doesn't live with me.).

and you are in NO WAY a nerd for loving volvos. they are so freakin spectacularly amazingly stellar. they're just about the coolest cars in town, i'd say. you gotta go back! you gotta go for the 240. wagon or sedan. any way you slice it, they're killer.

i used so many adjectives in that little paragraph.
