Pet-friendly lodging on Cape Cod

Innkeepers Ali Pitcher and Tom Dott, who describe themselves as a “50-something couple,” bought the Lamb and Lion Inn in Barnstable in 1999.

Pitcher and Dott have four diminutive dogs of their own. (Pictured below are three of them: Pomeranian Golly Miss Molly and Yorkshire terriers Cosmos and Prezza.)
