Chris Febel, Homer Glen resident, shared this photo of “Valentine Riley,” a 4-year-old chocolate lab. The family canine loves going to the dog park and running down the horse trails in the forest preserve. He also loves to swim, so the family has to be careful he doesn’t jump into ponds or retention areas. He’s a sweet dog and a happy part of the family, Febel said.

When I met them, I was like, “I have to join and be around these girls more.”
