So we're off tomorrow to Judy Norris' Rocky Ewe trial in Yelm, Washington.
I searched high and low for a hotel that would take dogs, and found a few but nothing that looked very satisfying. I even considered camping though it would likely be cold and wet.
Finally I remembered my love of hostels and discovered Chez Cascadia in Olympia, about a 45 minute drive from the trial site. To my surprise and delight, they take dogs for an additional charge of $5/night. The private room was taken so I'll be sleeping in one of the dorm-style rooms, but I don't mind and it will cut down expenses.
Much better than a hotel.
