About: If you are a dog or cat, Newburgh's Pet-n-Play Pet Resort is your Club Med. Owned and operated by Middlehope Veterinary Hospital, it really is a resort, with amenities that rival most five-star hotels and staffing ratios that are better than top prep schools. So when you're off skiing in Gstaad, you can leave Rover or Mittens in similarly luxurious accommodations. Consider (and we're not making any of this up): every suite -- yes, suite -- contains a custom bed, pillows, comforters, lambskin rug, maid service, twice-daily room service, Web-cam and a flat-screen TV (to watch Animal Planet, presumably). Extras include a salon and spa, Movie Night (someone will lay on the couch with Snowball, eat popcorn, and catch a flick), Rent-a-Grandma (a private half-hour cuddle session), storytime, moonlit walks, organized play groups, gourmet snacks... oh, and then there's the pool. Most of our clients say, 'Our pets are staying at better places than we are,' laughs manager Charlene Schaper.
