With today’s grand opening of Pooch Hotel, Dallas’ only hotel exclusively for dogs, we can now say that we have everything. Here, canines are pampered the same way humans choose to treat themselves while on vacation — with facials, “pawdicures” and aromatherapy massage. Dogs are referred to as “guests” and stay in furnished suites rather than kennels. They dine on organic dog food, and their benefactors are offered a long list of additional services available, such as like turn-down service with a belly rub. Ten dollars is a small price to know a fur child will sleep well at night. At some point in the future, there might even be a pool. Visit the Richardson facility at 751 S. Central Expressway from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and take a tour of the luxe lodgings. There will also be giveaways and one-day specials for new guests. Visit poochhotel.com.
