Meet one of the Staff Members

20/05/12 9:16 PM

It is our pleasure to introduce one of our Bed and Breakfast staff members, Hurley, our Golden Retriever. Hurley has applied and has been accepted as the Resident Plantation Dog. Hurley has been with us now for seven years and is a valued member of the family.

Hurley’s personality makes him the perfect Resident Plantation Dog.

Hurley is open and friendly. He is eager to greet everyone.

Hurley is known to be a very good listener (he can even spell).

Hurley is a great model for holiday photographs.

Hurley feels deeply and can sense when you need a friend.

Hurley loves good humor and smiles endlessly.

We look forward to having Hurley join us at the Plantation. However, Hurley will only be there part time. We share joint custody of him with our son. So Hurley will spend a week with our son and a week with us at the Plantation. We hope when you visit us, that you will have a chance to meet this extraordinay member of our staff.

  1. Your puppy is gorgeous!!! Thanks so much for your kind words about my tart. I hope that you like it. I suggest making the crust a little thinner. Maybe make 2/3 instead of the full amount of dough. Anyway, let me know if you like it… Can’t wait to see the plantation in it’s fullness!

  2. Thank you! I look forward to seeing more on your blog!

  25. Chef Forfeng Says:

    He’s Beautiful!

  26. Thank you! He is a lot of fun.

  27. Does this mean that yours will be a pet-friendly B&B?

  28. I think that is still in debate at this point. If we don’t allow them in the main house, once the cottages are built, we will for sure there. The issue with the main house is that it was built in 1791 and was complete restored. And I think the owners that we are going to be leasing it from might have an issue with it. I personally love pets.

  29. Well, we’ll keep hoping. And definitely will look forward to a visit when you open.

  30. We look forward to meeting you!

  31. Awwww he’s adorable!!

  32. Thank you! We love him. He is so sweet.

  44. Tummy Troll Says:

    Too cute to be true! 🙂 Wow and he can spell too??

  45. Thank you! That is one of his many talents. He loves ice cubes and can get his own from the frig door. It was weird the first time he did it. We were in the living room and knew we were home alone with just him. All of sudden we heard the ice drop ice on the floor. That is when we looked in and saw him pushing the button with his paw. Too smart for his own good!

  55. Thank you for stopping by! We apprecite you “camping out” and hope that you find the future posts to be just as exciting!

  56. What a beautiful dog! I love golden retrievers…they have such lovely personalities. I couldn’t thnk of a better staff member to have 🙂

  57. Thank you! We feel the same about Hurley. He is our true ambassador!

  58. What a gorgeous doggy! Will you be allowing dog’s with guests? Here in the uk its not always easy to go away with your pet! I’ll be posting the odd recipe for doggy treats on my blog – maybe a little something for 4 legged guests?

  59. Thank you! We are sad to say that we won’t be able to have pets in the main house due to the age and historic value of it. But we are going to be adding cottages that match the outbuildings and will have pet friendly places for them! I would love to have a great recipe for my four legged friends. I will be watching for it!

  60. Hurley seems to be so cheerful. I bet he is fun to play with.

  61. He is! He is such another child of ours. He is so warm and friendly so we know everyone is going to love him if he is there with us!

    Will you help us Save our History?
