My Trip To The Catskills!

Written By: Schmitty The Weather Dog | July 07, 2014

I know it must sound funny that Schmitty The Weather Dog (that would be me) went to a place called the Catskills.  And get this – I only saw one cat!  But I did see my two-legged friend, Loretta Swit, in MAME at the Forestburgh PlayHouse, in Forestburgh, NY. Which is in the Catskills.  Hence, my trip to the Catskills.

Making the hang with top dog, Franklin Trapp of the Forestburgh Playhouse, Auntie Mame herself, Loretta Swit, and Author Elly after the opening night show. Pawty!

But wait, there’s more! Since it’s a two hour drive from my hood in NYC,  we (Meteorologist Ron, Author Elly, and moi) rented a car (thank you Dolores & Renee from the 68th St Uptown location of Avis!) and found a pet friendly place to stay at right near the Forestburgh PlayHouse called The Inn At Lake Joseph.

Suffice to say/arf, our visit to the Catskills was PAWSOME! But why listen to me when I have fun pics to show you.  What is it you humans say?  A picture is worth a 1000 words.  Wow, that’s a lot of words for one picture.  Whatever.

Inn owner, Rue Weinger joins moi and Meteorologist Ron to do a weather pawcast.   One question: Where's his pants? Arf-Arf!

There's a lake for fishing, boating, kayaking. Even a special swimming crib for us pups. Now that's pet friendly!

What a pawsome pool in the huge yard at the Inn at Lake Joseph. What's a yard?

OK, if a pool is for swimming, then why is this called a pool table?

If you are looking for a fun place to get away from it all with your pet or even your spouse (sorry, couldn’t resist! Arf-Arf!) I give a furry four paws up to go play at the Inn At Lake Joseph.  www.LakeJoseph.com.  Give Rue, Ivan or Matt a call.  And tell them Schmitty the Weather Dog sent you.

Arf-Arf,
