Chris and I were supposed to go to Brantford again this weekend. It’s Chris’ father’s birthday and there’s also a big party honoring him on Saturday night for all the years he put into training kids to play hockey.
Well … as I said we were supposed to go. Now it will just be Chris.
You see Chris’ father booked a bunch of hotel rooms for all the family that’s expected to descend on Brantford this weekend. We had been planning to bring our Lab puppy with us. We were going to bring her crate so that she could be kept out of trouble when we were out of the house at the party.
Now that we’re supposed to be staying in a hotel with the rest of the gang we can’t bring our dog. It’s not a pet friendly hotel … so that means I can’t go. I’ll have to stay home with the dog. With all the people and the chaos that surrounds Chris’ family it was going to be difficult enough bringing the puppy. Staying in a hotel (especially a non pet friendly one) would be worse.
I had wanted to go. I was also curious as to whether Walter Gretzky might show up at the banquet as he used to coach hockey along side my father in law so chances are good that he might be there. He’s a friend of the family too. I’ll make sure Chris brings a camera with him just in case.
