Check out this drawing that Abbey & Madison, recent guests, did of me sleeping in the chair in the lobby and the table with the other artwork people have sent of me.

pet friendly inn in Carmel CACheck out Zorro, he is my twin, no kidding!  He’s younger than me, but now that his people and his dog have stayed with us here at Carmel Country Inn, I have contact with him and can teach him a lot. His people say he’s already king of his neighborhood in Sacramento, just like I’m the king here at Carmel Country Inn. Too bad Zorro doesn’t like to travel, because you know Carmel Country is the most Pet Friendly Inn in Carmel. Zorro’s people actually saw my mug and decided they just had to stay here at Carmel Country Inn, so they could meet me. I was right all along….It really is all about me!
