Stephen and Cheena are true dog lovers. Our Aussie Layla took a doggie vacation at their beautiful zen home and retuned relaxed and de-stressed. I know she received lots of love while we were away. Thank You Stephen and Cheena!

We take long walks in the Charleston Meadow neighborhood on Park St. where there are few cars. We also go to Baylands and Mitchell Park (if the dog likes dog parks).
