This is Gibbs, the official greeter at the Princess Resort. Although this photo doesn't convey it, he was very friendly and walked right up to everyone who displayed an interest. In fact, when I stopped petting him, he sort of nudged me for some more. What a sweetheart! When I asked if I could take his photo, he got a bit bashful and retreated to a corner. (It's so rare to find a dog that loves to have his picture taken.)
Gibbs had a partner who was on break when I was there. He had retreated to his bed in the corner of the lobby and was fast asleep.
I don't believe I've ever encountered a resort that uses dogs to greet guests before. Have any of you seen this done anywhere? Being a dog lover, I enjoyed it very much.
