Bulldog a pet representative for hotel
Chicago's hotels are going to the dogs.

In addition, the Affinia Chicago hotel offers its pet guests access to a pet psychic, a pet taxi and treats created by an executive pastry chef while the James Chicago hotel provides raincoats and galoshes for its pet guests, along with a specialized room service menu.
Dillon also poses for photographs with hotel guests as part of his unique role at the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants Group site, Navarro said.
