Oh, pardon me! I forgot that I’m talking to my two-legged friends. So, let me start again and say hello to everyone!

First let me take a minute to introduce myself….I’m Mr. Pickles! Yep, that’s me! I have the pleasure of being the mascot of The Park On Main® Hotel here in Highlands, N.C. I am a solid black Scottish terrier. And while I’m 18 (months that is!) most consider me a puppy. Of course, I beg to differ!

Now, when they first asked if I would take the job as mascot, I was a bit skeptical. However, I soon warmed up to the idea! I’ve done a lot in just a few short weeks and it’s been very fun! Several new outfits are even being made for me to wear during special “meet & greet” sessions when the boss is around.

My main job as hotel mascot is to welcome all of our guests. After all, our guests come in two categories: those on two-legs who pay the hotel bill and the four-legged ones who are cute, loyal, and all-around good companions.

Perhaps I’m getting ahead of myself a bit. Did I tell you that The Park On Main® Hotel is a pet-friendly facility? Well it is! Many of our rooms are pet-friendly and our staff will be happy to accommodate you when making a reservation. Just mention how many legs everyone has and it’s no problem.

Mr. Pickles welcomes you to The Park on Main!

Now, you’ll see a lot of pictures of me around the hotel. I think they did a good job capturing my good side. It’s not easy being such a dapper dog! Guests will see me on the room keycards, notepads, and a slew of other amenity items. I’m afraid my days of anonymity are over.

I am looking forward to meeting new friends who visit the hotel, although it may take me a minute to warm up to you at first. I’ll likely talk to you initially to see how your day is going. I have a friendly and engaging bark. And before you know it, we’ll be engaged in a full conversation. Sometimes, if the situation warrants, my human entourage can translate the conversation if I forget.

On special occasions, like our upcoming grand opening, guests will find me around the hotel making sure everyone is comfortable and enjoying their stay. I’ll be available to take pictures – just ask my escorts and I’ll be glad to pose for the camera! I’ll even put in a special bark for you too!

Meet Mr Pickles at The Park on Main Hotel

Hello Mr. Pickles!

I’m waiting to receive my updated itinerary. As soon as I get it, I’ll be sure to share with everyone. And that brings me to other exciting news! Everyone can follow me on Twitter @MrPicklesOnMain. I want to connect and share my unique “paw-spective” about The Park On Main® Hotel. And if my friends with paws have questions, get someone with hands to help you send me a message. You’ll see how fun it is and we’ll tweet often.

Hope to meet everyone nose-to-nose soon! In the meantime, let’s chat!
