Home Improvements!

Old stairway rug/runner

This weekend we decided it was time to get a new rug for the stairway (a runner) as the old one was 3 years old and was actually wearing out. So, we ripped out the old one, cleaned the dirt that filtered through it (yes, your stairway rug likely has a good bit of dirt under it), washed the stairs and installed the new runner. Here are the pictures of it, including the dogs, who were supervising.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
