By celebrity dogs, Happy, Lady & Lucy, of the King’s Life children’s book series about dog-friendly places. They sniff out the best of adventures at luxury hotels for kids and pets.
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Real life, therapy dog, Snickers, helped ring in the holidays at The Phoenician at the unveiling of the largest gingerbread house in Arizona – and his very own dog house – over the Thanksgiving weekend. Now, Snickers, the plush toy, makes himself at home in his new dog house, which sits right in the main lobby. You can visit him any time through the holidays! Next to him in the above photo is the book in which he makes a cameo, Discover The Phoenician with Phoe-Phoe & Friends, available in the resort’s gift shop, as well as online.
Storytelling with Mrs. Claus, Christmas Eve
You’ll be seeing a lot more of Snickers, as well as the book’s stars, Phoe-Phoe, the cottontail rabbit mascot of the Funicians Club, Tut-Tut the turtle, and Charlie the bear – and so will we! We’ll be helping at a special book reading with Mrs. Claus on Christmas Eve from 6-9 PM for in-house guests. Come meet us, Mrs. C. and the whole cuddly crew and listen to stories, both old and new.
