Romeo the Cat, will share the stories of pet owners who have gone the extra mile for their pets in this series, The Things We Do for Love.
Allie Maltese and her husband, Tanner Slomko, of San Diego, typically don’t travel without their 2.5-year-old French Bulldog, Ruby. But when they do, they put Ruby up at the swankiest doggie hotel in town.
Two years ago, Maltese and Slomko adopted Ruby from an acquaintance. The little spitfire instantly captured their hearts, and vice versa. Ruby has become such a central part of their lives that the trio is virtually inseparable. Ruby misses Maltese and Slomko when she is away from them. And, due to Ruby's need for frequent potty breaks and a daily medication she takes, she's not typically alone for long. Fortunately, the couple’s schedule is flexible, so there is always someone around to tend to Ruby’s needs. But the thought of leaving her with someone else was a source of tremendous angst for Maltese.
When Maltese and Slomko planned to travel east to visit family over the holidays, Maltese was beside herself, trying to find a place for Ruby to stay. As relative newcomers to San Diego with no family nearby, Maltese and Slomko didn’t have many options. They wondered if they’d be able to take the trip after all.
