Virginia Hotel Welcomes Goose Guest

A Florida hotel made an exception to its usual dogs-and-cats-only pets policy for a well-behaved goose.

Jennifer Thomas, 38, of Roanoke, Va., said The Shores Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach Shores allowed her goose, Gabby, to stay due to her good behavior and cleanliness, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Monday.

Normally, we only take in dogs or cats. We do prefer domestic pets. But Gabby’s grandfathered in, said Susan Keaveney, a hotel spokeswoman. Everyone here knows Gabby … and you can see our guests love it.


What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Hotel guests with hamsters, parrots, and miniature pigs will also demand that an exception be made for their beloved pets.

I wouldn’t mind staying at a hotel or motel that welcomes pets, as long as they don’t help themselves to the continental breakfast that is spread out for guests.

It’s the human guests with their obnoxious behavior that I don’t like. I’ll take Gabby with her good behavior and cleanliness over your average hotel guest.
