In the summer, guests sometimes struggle to find a nicer home, like ours, that also provides a pool. Because of the climate and short summer season, pools are not very common at private, smaller, upscale complexes or homes.
But the good news is that if you want more than the hot tubs provided with our rentals, there are plenty of places in and around Mammoth Lakes to dip your toes in water -- and even put your booty in the sand.
Is your dog your co-pilot like mine is?
Maybe your dog helps you relieve stress, reduce anxiety or even eases the symptoms of your PTSD. In our family, dogs have filled all of those roles. And like you, I recognize the importance of our dogs' roles in completing our family. In fact, I can't imagine our lives--or our stress and anxiety levels-- without the dogs we've loved over the years.
But are our dogs pets? Or are they service animals, protected by law and allowed to travel freely, regardless of pet/animal policies? You may be surprised to learn that having a certification from an online company, or even having a letter from your doctor does not mean that your dog is a legally protected service animal.
