Last week we were in London for my hooman, Amy's, exhibition at The Old Bank Vault on Hackney Road. Although I was very proud of Amy, gallery openings are tiresome affairs for Shiba's with lots of noisy people wanting to stroke me and disturbing my required 21 hours of sleep a day. So as a compromise Amy said she would book us into Mama Shelter, a delightful dog friendly hotel just a short waggle away from gallery.
When we arrived I was greeted by the Hotel Manager, he didn't say much but looked very proud so I decided to sit down next to him whilst the hooman's sorted out my stay. Everyone seemed very happy to see me and I got just the right amount of fuss.
After meeting up with my best pal Wolf at the private view I returned home to my hotel room where a comfy bed awaited and proceeded to have a full 10hours sleep. The room was just the right temperature and the hooman's said their bed was very comfy too although I think mine was definitely better. I had a nice bowl for water and some tasty treats as a bed time snack.
The next morning we all went down for breakfast, I didn't get to try any because my hooman's are vegetarian (they tell me it's good for the planet but I still think they could have ordered me a small piece of bacon...!). Judging by the speed they ate it at I imagine it was very tasty and I ordered them coffee's so they had the energy to take me on a big walkies afterwards! Mama Shelter is conveniently located for Haggerston Park and London Fields, two of my favourite old haunts.
I had a such a good stay at Mama Shelter, everyone was very friendly and there were lots of comfy places to nap and other furry friends to say hello to. If you are planning a staycation with your hooman the hotel are offering a special package for friends of Hiro + Wolf:
