Hotel to welcome dogs to breakfast for SPCA fund-raiser

Tail-wagging guests are welcome at Loews Annapolis Hotel on Friday for a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals fund-raising "bark breakfast" kicking off the second-annual Pets.com "Take Your Dog to Work Day" and celebrating the "Loews Loves Pets" hotel program.

From 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., Chihuahuas and Great Danes alike can have breakfast with their human companions for $25.

Local veterinarian Karl Reichardt will give travel and hot-weather tips for pets while the hotel wait staff serves pooches a "doggie breakfast" including ground lamb and rice, and bottled water. Pet owners will be served a continental breakfast.

Each canine guest will receive a "bark briefcase" of treats for the day at work. The dogs and their people are invited back after work for Loews' "Yappie Hour," which will feature drinks will canine names.

Loews hopes to raise $1,000 to donate to the county chapter of the SPCA, while drawing attention to the hotel chain's policy of accommodating people with pets.

"Bark breakfast" reservations are recommended. Information: 410-295-3217.
