Dreaming of a break somewhere? Tell us why and where... we might take you there!
Inspired by the popular film "The Holiday," HomeExchange presents "The Pawliday." Worn out and bone-tired, English bred Sam strikes up a conversation with energetic and spirited Bostonian Barry on HomeExchange.com. Both seeking a much-needed break, they agree to swap homes and step into each other's lives. Barry finds himself in a spacious English country house while Sam settles into cushy city life in the heart of Beantown. Soon enough, both pups find what they were looking for through this purrfect way to travel.

Our young actor Beau aka Sammy is a French bulldog of 8 months old from Western Massachusetts. The Pawliday was his first act but he and his mom Alana did so well, that we wouldn't be surprised to see them on the red carpet one day. Beau loves to wear costumes and is full of energy.
Barry is a 2 year old Golden Retriever from Rhode Island. This adorable "mister cool" is super mellow and is really attentive to everything. Besides his career of acting, Barry is now a big brother and spends a lot of time pur-fecting his charm.
