Let 'em stay home - we'll have fun!
Home is sweet. We love ours. We've been tucked back into a corner of Shady Hollow in Southwest Austin for over 10 years now. Our little corner of 78739 has great neighbors with many children and pets, lots of block parties, and that good neighborhood feeling you get when people are looking out for each other.
From our experience, our pets (two dogs, Lucy and Riley, and a cat named Kitty) behave better and appear much happier if they get to stay home and "man the fort" while we are away. We've tried other options, but nothing seemed to leave them as comfortable as being with the smells of the family, sounds of the yard, favorite cushions and special spots of grass they call home.
