Fairmont's Catie Copley is Having a Birthday Party (Just Don't Ask How Old She is in Dog Years)
You may remember Catie as one of our recent Cute Hotel Doggies of the Day. The Canine Ambassador is a fixture at the front desk at the Fairmont Copley Plaza—except for the days when she’s off doing a book signing with human concierge partner Jim. That's what she was doing on a recent Saturday when we dragged a friend inside the hotel to see if Catie was in house. But of course she was at a book signing! She’s a dog. Where else would she be?
Yet if you live in Boston, or will be in town this weekend Catie Copley is guaranteed to be at her...er...desk. On Saturday in the hotel’s St. James Room at 11 a.m., you can drop in on a V.I.P. party for Catie Copley’s birthday. Even better, no need to work the bouncer or name-drop as Catie's party is open to everyone.
While we didn't get to meet Catie in person (doggie?), the hotel concierge on duty showed us Catie’s photo album full of pictures with her fans (including Dan Marino). We also took a peek at the Catie merchandise through the window of the hotel’s store (closed at the time) which is where we found about tomorrow’s birthday party.
We’ve seen plenty of canine concierges, but none get quite as much special treatment as our girl Catie. Book deals, public appearances, fancy birthday parties at hotels—in our next life we are totally coming back as a hotel dog.
Oh, and we know it’s not polite to ask a lady her age, so we’ll save you the hassle right now—Catie is turning eight.
