Hi, I'm Randy! I've been a dog lover my entire life, having grown up with my black lab, Ebony, who lived a great life of 12 years. In the years since, I've spent a lot of time with my mother's 3 adorable labs, Buster, Moose, and Mojo (who's still my boy from before my parents' split). I'm always the first one she asks to watch them when she's away, and I'm always happy to oblige. I've also taken care of neighbor's dogs in the past, sometimes letting them just stay at my place so they're not lonely. Unfortunately, I'm not in a situation to have a dog myself at the moment, but I will always go out of my way to greet them whenever I can and take joy in making sure they're well cared for.

If you decide to visit Homewood and you are looking for a place to stay along with your pooch, you should visit the La Banque Hotel. The hotel allows two pets of any size for a $50 fee per room. If you are looking for a cheaper option, then you should check out the Homewood AirBnB Rentals.

Most of these are restaurants and cafes, including Lassen's Tap, Culver's, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Portillo's and Chipotle Mexican Grill.
