Hello, Mac here. One of Cam and I’s recommendations back in September last year (http://www.dog-friendly-accommodation.co.uk/maccam-recommend-westmorland-hotel-near-penrith/ it appears), the Westmorland Hotel near Penrith, has had a very high profile guest this month.
The guest in question was Angus and he had just come 2nd in a prestigious, international competition. Augus is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and he was stopping off at the Westmorland Hotel on his way back to his home in Edinburgh after coming 2nd in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Veteran Class at Crufts 2014. What a great result!
We’ve read this about him, his full Kennel Club name being Lyncraeg Dream Angus ShCM, “Blenheim with good type head, sweet expression. Well constructed and moving well for his 10 years.” We say, well done Angus! By the way, we both have funny names too. Mine is Birkcross Blue Boy and Cam’s is Birkcross Winter Druid (although some may say he should have been named Birkcross 666 The Devil…).
Anyway, back to Angus and apparently he had a fantastic spot of relaxation post Crufts along with his owner as well as Teazle and Saffy (all in picture above). Birmingham to Edinburgh is some distance and especially for us canines so the ability to have somewhere to stop over, right off the motorway, dog friendly and human friendly is ideal.
We think it shows the standard of the place that a Crufts finalist has stayed there and we’re sure Angus and his 2 friends enjoyed the Lily’s Kitchen doggy treats in the room, we think he well deserved them.
Your owners need to mention we’re coming to stay so just give the Westmorland Hotel a call before booking and let them know so they can get everything ready for you. Full details on this dog friendly hotel in Cumbria can be found here http://www.westmorlandhotel.com/Dog-friendly-rooms
