Today I ran the Zooma Half Marathon, which started/ended at the Hyatt Lost Pines Hotel/Resort east of Austin. At the start of the race, I saw two huge, fluffy dogs wearing race shirts. I thought to myself, “Look at those huge, fluffy dogs wearing race shirts!” Then when I was wandering around the hotel grounds after the race, I came up the dogs again, and found that they live at the hotel. They have their own outdoor pen adjoining the lobby, and a plaque with their names and the history of Newfoundland dogs.
They have their own built-in dog houses and enormous Coolaroos to recline on during the summer months.
