If you are going to come over to our house, you have to expect* a few things:
1. You will be greeted by 1-3 dogs. Most likely 2.
2. If you let them, my dogs will try to turn you into their own personal pillows.
3. Once you cross the threshold into our home, you will immediately be covered in dog hair. Rufus says “deal with it.”
Basically, we are the embodiment of the mantra “love me, love my dogs.” In fact, my dear friend Aleks from Love and a Six-Foot Leash was kind enough to make me this print after I oooh’ed and ahh’ed at the one she made for Kate from Twenty-Six to Life for the Pittie Posse Secret Santa last year!
Of course, she changed the color scheme to fit our beach-y themed home.
A nice frame and matte from Hobby Lobby bumped this bad boy up to eleven, if you will.
And now, it is displayed proudly in our bedroom. And if someone complains about the thick layer of dog hair covering their tush when they get off the couch, I can point to the sign… then hand them a lint roller.
What are some things your friends and family should expect when they come over to your (dog-centric) house?
* While we are a dog-centric home, we do our best to respect the wishes of our family and friends. We train our dogs not to jump on visitors (although that is an on-going struggle), not to beg for food at dinner, and we give the dogs activities to do so they are not constantly in our guests’ faces. But the dog hair… so far we’ve been unable to find a way to rid ourselves (and our guests) of that.
