Mansions are NOT Dog Friendly!

July 13, 2019

.

We arrived in Rhode Island where Mummy and Daddy decided on our FIRST DAY that they wanted to see a few of the “Newport Cottages” that really aren’t cottages at all! They are HUGE MANSIONS (that were summer homes) and they don’t allow doggies, which is odd because I KNOW they must have all had little doggies living in those “cottages” at one time or another… but whatever. We were left behind at OUR COTTAGE, “The Yorkie Express” while our parents toured three of the most popular. Here are a few facts so you can compare them:

.

THE BREAKERS

Square Feet: 62, 482 on 5 floors

This is the largest “cottage” in Newport.

Rooms: 70… 30 are for the hired help

.

MARBLE HOUSE

This was given to Alva Vanderbilt for her 39th birthday… that’s a pretty nice present!

It cost $11 million to build in 1892 and $7 million of it was for MARBLE!!!

Rooms: 50

.

ROSECLIFF

This house has the largest ballroom of all the “cottages” measuring 40 x 80 feet

You can rent this place out for special events… like a dream wedding!!!

.

THE YORKIE EXPRESS

Doggie Friendly

Square Feet: 200

Rooms: 2

This “cottage” can be moved to any location in the country making it the PERFECT second home!!! ??❤️??

Well I’ve decided I like the “Yorkie Express” much better❗️
Them big cottages is to much to clean and heat and cool for me. My fur babies might get lost in there.
I’m sure mummy and daddy liked to look at all the pretty marble.
The marble would be good for “so when Benz wants to mark his territory” it could be cleaned up easier. lol
Happy Traveling ♥️♥️??

WHEN MY MASTER AND MISTRESS CELEBRATED THEIR 19TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY, THEY SPENT PART OF THEIR TRIP TOURING THE ‘COTTAGES’ . LIKE YOU AND YOUR SIBLINGS, I DID NOT GET TO GO WITH THEM. NO TURTLES ALLOWED. HISS, HISS, HISS.

Ohhhh Snuggles Anne, they thought of you today! At one of the cottages there was a fancy ceiling done in mosaic tiles and in the design was a TURTLE! Mummy said, “LOOK! It’s SNUGGLES ANNE!” They took a picture of it and will email it to your Mommy. ??

Whenever I see “cottages” like this, I first think of all the cleaning…..of course if I could afford one, I would be able to hire someone to do it.?. I really prefer the Yorkie Express. Have a wonderful stay.

I KNOW!!!! They had an ENTIRE FLOOR of bedrooms for the live-in help that was required to run these cottages! You don’t just hire MERRY MAIDS to come and clean for the afternoon when you have one of those places and someone has to COOK for the parties!!!

My Condo is Dog ? Friendly to any dog any shape or size! I’ll bet the doggies back then didn’t know how to have and make adventures like your family does! I’d much rather have my tiny Condo or your Yorkie Express any day!

It is pretty easy to clean our YORKIE EXPRESS! A quick sweep and a swish of the SWIFFER and then wipe down the ONE kitchen counter and it’s basically done! Lol

Hands down, the Yorkie Express. I will bet there is more love per sq. ft. in those 200 feet than any one of those entire mansions. When it’s all said and done, isn’t that where your heart is the happiest…where you are loved to your inner being? Keep the mansions, give me the warm and cozy home on wheels where you know you are loved and wanted.

They didn’t allow ANY KIND OF STROLLER. People haad to carry their little children! I guess stroller can present problems in the small hallways.
