Tanner, Alex, & Bently
Doggy and Non-doggy lovers alike will find comfort in a greeting from our three four-legged hosts and greeters. Thos who visit us on a regular basis may even be greeted by Alex and Tanner jumping in circles as you get out of your car! They have great memories of their ‘friends!’
Looking for Trevor and/or Daisy?
Tanner, Alex, and Bently have been raised here at the Lodge. They are trained on how to act or NOT react to the abundant native wildlife on the property. Their presence out and about the cabins is perfectly acceptable as long as they are not being bothersome to you. Please note that they are welcome, and feel at home, in you cabin as long as it is approved by you. Open doors invite them in, along with other critters such as Chipmunks! By keeping the doors closed, or by telling them to ‘go home,” they will respond to your request and realize they are unwanted around your cottage.
We ask that you DO NOT feed Tanner and Daisy, no matter how pathetic their “puppy dog eyes” may seem to be. Studies have shown that excessive people food and/or table scraps may shorten a dog’s life by up to five years. If you do feel the need to award them with treats, they are allowed Milk-Bones, and other LOW-FAT doggie treats you can find at your pet store. Their favorite treats are Scoobie Snacks! Please no rawhide or other treated bones. We have 19 units on property. Please only feed them 1 or two small treats. Try multiplying their DTI (Daily Treat Intake) by 19!!
These three dogs are very loving and enjoy spending time with their guests. They are wonderful around children, and are often the highlight of the family vacation.
Tanner is a Bernese Mountain Dog and was born in November of 2007. He is now a tried and true McGregor veteran, having learned the ropes from Daisy, a beloved former mascot here at the lodge. Alex is a lab/boxer mix. She is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. If you can’t find her roaming the property, just come into the lobby… she’ll be on ‘her’ chair! And Bently is the newest addition to our pack! He is a Shih Tzu and a very loveable little guy. He isn’t here quite as much as he technically belongs to Claire, owner Chris Wood’s daughter. So he is up at the lodge when Claire says it’s okay!
If you’re wondering about Trevor and Daisy, you can see their pages by clicking on their names… These two were the original McGregor mascots and truly loved by everyone that came to know them. They are both dearly missed and hold a special place in McGregor’s history and in all of our hearts! (their pages are coming soon!)
