Come and knock on our door! We've been waiting for you. Or ring the doorbell. Whatever.
We're here to show you around. Come on in. Got any treats?
Hang your coat in that closet to your right. Empty your pockets of treats before you close that door, though, will you?
Now look over here to your left. That's the dining room.
The dining room faces the road to the west. The windows are great to bark out of.
Look for yourself!
If we have dinner here you can slip us a little snack under the table.
From the dining room you can walk directly into the living room.
Have a seat on the couch and gaze into the fireplace.
Knickknacks to the right
Knickknacks to the left
Standing in the middle of the room, looking left at the living room
Turn around, and you'll see the piano. Off to your left you'll see our covered porch. We have quail and pheasants in our yard to bark at.
Go around the piano to your right and head to the kitchen. Feel free to drop a treat onto our lounging beds if you like.
Knickknacks here, knickknacks there, knickknacks, knickknacks everywhere.
Now here's a room we like. The kitchen. The door on the far right goes to the laundry and the garage. The door straight ahead is the pantry. Snacks!
Now as you turn to your left you'll see the rest of the kitchen.
Aren't you hungry yet? We're hungry. Come sit with us and have a bite to eat.
You can look out at the wildlife while we share a meal.
New fridge. Keeps our chicken jerky nice and cold.
Don't you want to take a moment to feed us something while you're in the kitchen?
Could be goodies up there, you never know. Second sink on the right, the oven is on the left. Does it bake cookies? Wish we knew!
Head out of the kitchen through the hall on the left and go past the front door to the guest room.
Down the little hall...
There's a bathroom on the right if you need it.
Guess it's already occupied.
Could you hand us a towel?
Guest room ahead!
See how comfy you'll be when you come to visit?
Head back into the living room and around the fireplace and knickknacks to the right...
To the master bedroom.
We can head directly out this door to the covered porch.
Some of us sleep in here.
Everybody else sleeps up here.
This hallway leads to the closets and bathroom.
Sinks and storage to the left...
Whoops. Sorry Spring.
Big bathtub to the right. Lifeguards free of charge.
This is your view from the tub.
You'll never be lonely taking a bath.
Hopping out of the tub, you'll see the linen closet ahead and the shower to your right.
You can have company in the shower, too! Do you mind if we lick the soap?
Two, two, two ways to get wet! Here's one...
And here's the other. But you'll have more fun with us in the tub!
Let's go upstairs. At the top of the steps there's a little landing where you can sit and bark at the neighbors.
When you've rested enough, turn right before the landing and come exercise with us.
Don't like the elliptical? No problem. We'll be done on the treadmill in a few minutes.
You can spot for Spring while you wait.
Did you enjoy your workout? Let's head back down the hall and continue the tour.
There's another bathroom off here to the left.
Don't you ever knock??
Across the hall from the bathroom is the office.
It has a big storage area through that door you saw.
This is our favorite couch. You're welcome to share it with us. We'll even share our blankets.
Don't we have great windows?
Sometimes the quail and swallows sit here and sing to us. They look delicious.
Out in back there's a pond we'd love to swim in if only we were allowed.
If you want, you can sit at the computer and surf Dogster or order us toys online.
Go back down the hallway to the right and the big guest room.
Trust us, it's a comfortable bed.
See how relaxing this is?
Not sleepy? No problem. Find a good book.
Or relax in the tub.
We're always here if you need anything.
