Looking towards the new front door:
Stars & stripes theme mirror & coat rack:
(we'll get back to the bench in a moment)
Looking toward the back door - our dog-door to our fenced back yard,
a guard-gate so we don't escape when the doors have to be open,
mom's painting & a cool star nite-light:
Now, about that bench...
its a good place for taking off boots & setting packages down...
but it also hold a secret stash....
....all our stuff! Leashes, harnesses, tie-outs, poop bags, dog bowls all furry neatly tucked away in the drawers & cubbies. The new bins on either side hold our bags of food* and paw-drying towels & a few extra rugs to put down when its muddy. Mom stashes her mud-boots under there in the winter, too.
Hey, mom... we saw the food bins opened...
does that mean we get early dinner?No??? Oh well, I guess we can go outside & play bitey-face chase till its dinnertime!
A-roos to yous!

*Its best to keep pet food in the bag it comes in, rather than dumping it into a storage bin. The bags are treated to keep the food from going rancid. She found this out talking to a pet food manufacturer- sharing it cause many people don't realize that its important to keep the food in the original bag.
