Catie Copley, the Labrador Retriever
The Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston, Massachusetts

Catie Copley has her paws full as the Canine Ambassador at Boston's Fairmont Copley Plaza hotel. This sweet-natured Labrador retriever is always happy to show off her guide dog training on sightseeing walks (Beacon Hill, Newbury Street, and the Freedom Trail are nearby), as long as she's back in time for her "Dog Day Afternoons," when she mingles with business guests on a break from their meetings. The concierge at the hotel's St. James entrance, who helps Catie keep her schedule, also makes sure she has time for "Reading with Catie" sessions at local schools and libraries. Seems that the only thing that Catie can't do is read the two books in which she stars.

Petiquette: Cats and dogs of all sizes can make the 383-room Fairmont Copley Plaza their second home and accompany their people everywhere except in the restaurants and bars. Pet beds, bowls, and treats are standard pet amenities, but book the Canine Adventure package and you'll get a newly renovated guest room, a walk with Catie, a pawtographed copy of her newest book, Catie Copley's Great Escape (to Canada!), and, though it's hardly the same, a Catie stuffed toy to take home.
