Dog-friendly hotel offers puppy cuddles to make your day

The Hotel Nikko San Francisco has made Buster Posey Presutti its COO: “Canine Operating Officer.” The sweet therapy dog has had the position since 2015. His duties include visiting guests and giving them lots of puppy kisses.

Here’s how the cuddlefest works. When you arrive in your room, you’ll find a stuffed animal with a note. You can either buy the plush toy, with proceeds going to a local animal shelter, or you can dial the operator and meet Buster in person. An official meeting takes place on the outdoor patio, or he can greet you in the lobby. If you bring your own furry friend on vacation, Buster is available for playdates too. He’s not shy, so prepare to be showered with love.
