The problem?

Winston, a 2-year-old Labrador golden retriever cross, was supposed to be a guide dog, but didn't complete his training. 🐶 The problem? 🐶 "His main fault was he was too friendly," said Tracey Drake, director of public relations at the Fairmont Empress. 🐶 The "sweet boy" is now stationed at the famed Victoria hotel where he greets guests in the lobby. 🐶 And registered guests can even take Winston for walks around the city. 🐶 "Travel is not as luxurious as it used to be. Airports are scary places. Airplanes are very crowded. Travel can be really tedious and really stressful," Drake said. 🐶 "Winston is really able to take that stress away ... He's very good at that." 🐶 Photos by CBC's Mike Mcarthur @mimcarthur | #cbc #cbcnews #britishcolumbia #travel #dogsofinstagram #doggo #goodboy #yyj #vancouverisland #fairmont #hotel #victoria #empress ...
