Canines celebrate "indoguration" season with patriotic amenities

As President-elect Barack Obama finalizes his cabinet appointments, it's time for him to make another crucial decision. Which lucky dog will be the "First Pooch?" The search for the Obama family's new puppy has turned the spotlight on pets, and Loews Hotels is offering an "indoguration" for all with the "Presidential Pooch" package, available for the first 100 days of the Obama administration, January 20 through April 29, 2009.

The "Presidential Pooch" package includes:

  •     A one-night stay at one of Loews Hotels 17 properties for guests and their pets
  •     A special "Stars and Stripes" room service meal for pups (see recipe below)
  •     A patriotic-themed bandana for dogs to wear home

The "Presidential Pooch" package is offered at a 10% discount off Loews Best Available Rate. Room rates vary by location and start at $139.
