A guide dog that was rejected for being too friendly has found the perfect place to share his sociable nature: the lobby of Victoria's famed Empress Hotel. Winston was part of the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind, but failed to complete his training. "So it didn't work out being a guide dog for the blind, but it certainly works out for us." Winston's training means he stays calm "when people enter the hotel or if people are coming in with pets because we're a pet-friendly hotel," Drake said. Drake says the hotel is also prepared for instances where guests who aren't comfortable with dogs or have allergies arrive.
