Puppy Problems

     I have noticed that the girls seem to groan as they jump off of my bed. The bed is very tall, and they are both now seven years old, which is a little less than half of their lifetime. I needed to come up with plan to solve their problem.

This was my first solution, a beautiful and very heavy staircase.
The girls did not want anything to do with this one.
I think it is because they were narrow and had no sides.
Either way, the $55ish dollar staircase went back
to the store for a refund.

I have a leather ottoman in my living room, which both girls 
use to look out of the front window. This is where you can find them most of the time, as they have a self-imposed duty to guard the house from FedEx, UPS, the postman, and everyone walking up and down the sidewalk. I believed that adding one to the bedroom
would solve my problem.  I found this one at a wonderful resale shop in Batavia, thanks to the recommendation by Nicole Serpico. The best part was that it only cost me $49.00.  Who knew it would be cheaper than the staircase.  It doesn't match any part of my room, but right now all that matters to me is that the dogs are safe and not hurting themselves by jumping off of the bed. I owe ya, Nicole.

 This is the sign outside the building.  It is located right on 
Route 31 just before Wilson Street. Check it out!!!!

They have so many wonderful items to buy.
The furniture is definitely high end, but a whole 
lot cheaper than brand new.  Of course they do have some less expensive items too, but take a few minutes and 
wander through the showroom.
