Weekend at the Drury Inn

video

We spent the weekend of February 27 and 28th in Belleville, IL for a dog show. We decided to the skip the usual Comfort Inn and try the Drury Inn. We always have hotel limitations because of the dogs, but our friends recommended this hotel chain and they accepted dogs, so we thought, why not try it out? Talk about amenities!! Where should I start? We had a 37 inch flat screen with free movie rentals, free popcorn and free soda in the lobby, a huge room (big enough to fit Nikki, Jeff, Peyton, Brady, Brady's Pack 'n Play, Brady's Bouncer, all of Peyton's stuff, and all of Nikki and Jeff's stuff!), happy hour from 5:30-7 pm with 3 free drinks from the bar and food, an exercise room, a pool, a fridge, a microwave, and a HUGE breakfast buffet in the morning. ALL FOR ONLY $64.99/night. Guess where we will be staying from now on!

Besides the hotel, Peyton picked up 2 more points towards his championship. He now has 8 points. He showed well at the Specialty on Friday taking reserve, took winners dog on Saturday, and acted like a crazy puppy on Sunday. Saturday we made it over to Wenzville, MO to watch some friends at an agility competition. Brady did very well at the show and had fun watching the dogs run through the tunnels and jump over bars. The dogs looked like they were having so much fun, Jeff and I got hooked! We would like to start working with Lilly in agility towards the end of the summer.

As you can see from the video, Brady also learned that he can fluctuate his voice. It was pretty funny to listen to him screaming, but of course he learned that he could do it while we were staying in the hotel! Oh well, we didn't get kicked out, so I guess we weren't too loud.

Oh my goodness, that is adorable! Brady is just going crazy for the camera. Such a happy little guy. Those baby sounds are some of the best sounds in the whole world. Glad you are enjoying him so much.

Isn't great when they start to interact with you more and more! He seems like a very happy baby!
