Ask the hotel if they will accept pets- some will but for a little more of our deteriorating dollars! Ask other hotels, if any will accept pets- if one does, see if your company will put you up there!

Since you asked- IMO, if she already has a b/f- it could be the "clash of the titans" eventually! I lived in Mobile, AL for 7 years- I don't think you Southern guys, like arrangements like that!

Just my 2ยข worth!

IF your friends ask her what her bf thinks of the idea cause you don't want to cause problems. Maybe talk to him??? Hey it would help you both finacially but i would ckeck into those few things I mean if it were me

I would go a different route than others suggested. I would leave the dog with a friend in Virginia temporarily. I would stay with your femme friend in the interim while you see how the job works out.

Now in order to give a valid opinion, there are three things I need to know:
Does the dog require a yard and how does it get along with other dogs?
Is this move a permanent career move?
If so, do you plan on buying a home in the near future?

Whether you rent/buy a home and bring in a roommate or move in with somebody else, a key is that the dogs (if there is more than one) get along. Two dogs have gotten killed in my home in dogfights when no humans were home.

The other thing is to get roommate references from the other person regardless of who moves in with who. Make sure that there is no relationship drama with the other person and that they are financially, emotionally, and occupationally stable.

I would leave the dog with someone I could trust until you can you get your own place. Even if she were to accept the dog into her house, animals react totally different to move than humans. A perfect, well-mannered dog may turn into a chewer when moving to a new home.

If you just act yourself you'll be a wonderful guest. Ask her what her bathroom schedule and work yours around hers. Clean up after yourself, don't give her the chance to make the first move. Ask her what her pet peeves are and her idiosyncreties.

Make sure your feet and shoes do not stink.

When two or more persons are together it is a relationship. The most important thing in any relationship is communication. And everybody has a deal breaker. If there is something that you cannot live with ask her if she can temporarily change until your departure. It can't hurt to ask.

Other than all that, which is mostly common scence, I hope you have really nice time and good luck with the new job!

I have no tips, but wish you the best of luck with your new job and move.
Saying that, I'd love to have a roomie, but I want HIM sharing my bed!

Tell her you would like to do a trial run for a week or so to see how she, you and the dog get along. It might be nice to have company instead of staying in a hotel. She might like the dog and be at home different hours and enjoy walking your pet in lue of you doing something nice for her. Hey, ya never know with roomates. It could take some financial burden off both of you. Best wishes!

I would base it on how long & how well I know her .... If you two are just friends , keep it as such & her boy friend has no insecure jealousy issues then it should be alright.... Hooking you up w/ her girl friends would be a plus As far as the dog it seems others have given you solid advice on that ... Good luck on your new quest

You already know I wish you the VERY best on the job.
As for a roommate...wow...that seems to be a little different for everyone. I'm not so sure if I could do that or not.
But some people do just fine.

What do you WANT to do? Just keep in mind, it will always be Her home and you are also used to living on your own in your own home with no one to answer to for any reason.
Good luck what ever you decide............

And, Yes...some hotels do allow pets for an additional fee.

For what it's worth, I like WoW's suggestion about leaving the dog in Va. for a week. Somebody already mentioned this but it bares repeating. Being a roommate is just another form of a relationship. Communication is key. This was advice given to me when I moved out of my parents house and moved in with my first roommate. Every bad situation roommate-wise I've ever gotten into involved not listening to this advice. Anyway, there's my .02.
