My feisty dog, aka my spirit animal, turns six today, so in honor of her, a dog days destination: in Cottonwood, Idaho (population 900), the Dog Bark Park Inn (say that 10 times quickly) boasts the world’s one and only bed and breakfast inside a wooden beagle, dubbed Sweet Willy (pictured with sidekick Toby). The husband-and-wife hosts are also self-taught chainsaw artists, and the B&B grew from the couple’s cameo on QVC. After toiling for 18 months fulfilling order after order for carved wood dogs, the pair invested their earnings in developing Dog Bark Park. Toby appeared first, then Sweet Willy, who stands 30 feet tall and 34 feet long, and sleeps four in a queen bed and two twin futons. To the rear of Sweet Willy, a red fire hydrant sheathes the outhouse. With the inn only April through October, Zelle and I need to hightail it west. I’ll be sure to pack these trainers to toy with my canine-crazed companion.
