This week we set up shop at the Omni Hotel in West Houston. The room came with a nice bed for Eko to lounge on, and the grounds around the hotel have a path for short walks. The biggest perk of the hotel is that it is just down the road from Houston’s best dog park. Eko also had a couple of unique learning experiences at the hotel this week.
Eko had a difficult time comprehending how there could possibly be a pond indoors. He also made his first fish friends. He wanted to go in and say hi, but we decided to save that for our next trip to Houston
And he got a lesson in mechanical engineering on the elevator
Like most dogs who live in an apartment building or travel a lot, Eko is very comfortable with elevators. He understands that you step into this magical device and that somehow it transports you somewhere else. However, the Omni’s glass elevators let Eko see for the first time exactly what was going on. It blew his mind. He still doesn’t fully trust the Omni elevators, but after a few skittish trips I stopped having to drag him on.
Our Texas two-step continues as we head west to Austin for the week. Today we’re driving straight to the Austin Kite Festival. It looks like it should be a blast, so let us know if you’re around.
