A Little Note From Lexi – Our Official Greeter

Hello, my name is Lexi, a Golden Retriever, and the Inn dog at the Inn at Weston and official greeter in beautiful Weston, Vermont. I came to the Inn in 2009 when I was one and a half years old. Bob and Linda (my parents) rescued me from another family who did not like me very much. I am so happy to be here!

Golden Retriever

My job description includes meeting and greeting our house guests. However, since we are now “pet friendly”, my duties include making other pets-mostly dogs like me, feel welcome and comfortable here. It is a big job and I take it very seriously.

I have noticed a few things about the dogs that come here. They are not as comfortable as they will be in a very short time. They rarely “settle in” like their parents. It takes a while to relax in an environment where nothing looks or smells the same. Most of the time a crate will help and of course familiar toys and bed. These things create a sense of place and helps to calm my new friends.

Also, being able to join “parents” at breakfast is also calming. We offer that during the summer months when breakfast is served on our flower filled deck and in the winter months, in the pub. Dogs are not allowed in the dining room, me included.

The other observation I have is that most of my new friends have been rescued-like me. That is why owners bring their dogs here-they don’t put them in a kennel. Nope, once you are rescued, you belong with your owners as much as possible. It helps to ease those bad memories. I get it. I still have trouble being alone. My Uncle Phil lives upstairs and he takes care of me when I can’t be with my parents.

Dog friendly

There are many places in Vermont to run and explore. I highly recommend Lowell Lake-only 5 miles from the Inn. When Bob and Linda take me there, I run and swim and fetch the “bally.” It’s lots of fun.

So, if you are seeking an idyllic spot to relax with your best friend, I would love to greet you and welcome you as a friend.
