The Thread in Cat General was So Nice.....
But Quite Obviously,Dogless!!!!!
Those Houses were entirely too Clean & neat!!!

This is Our House...
John and I bought it last April 03....
If I'm a bit of a Proud Mama...You must Excuse me...We have worked Very Hard for a Very Long time to be able to purchase this house....It is Almost my dream House....If I could just Pick it up and put it on my 5 acres,It would be perfect!!!!!!

Oh and in case Anybody was confused,I do Not have pet Rabbits....Those are Dust Bunnies!!!!;) :) :D ...3 dogs,1 cat...we both work full time...Yeah....we got Full Blown Rabbits here!!!;) :) :D

This is as close as I could get to capturing the front of the house

06-17-2004, 09:31 PM

Keep Trying, 4 Dog Mom!!!!
I have a few more rooms left to post!!!

Computers,Gotta Luv Them!!!!

06-17-2004, 09:43 PM
For My Fellow Dog Owners....Notice the Blinds in the last Photo....Rather Askew,Aren't they?????
That is From BIG Doggie Heads trying to Look through them when they are closed!!!;) :o :)

So Now,Let me show you the better pic of the library....
We didn't need a Formal livingroom,so I converted it.....I would still like to build HUGE book shelves,But I have Been Warned!!!
Like Tubby & Peanuts' Mom said....Don't change too much in case the next person to buy it doesn't like that!!!! ( Tough living w/an Agent!!)
:rolleyes: )

To the left of the book case is the hall going to the Family room

06-17-2004, 09:48 PM
O.K....Down the Hallway to The Family Room!!!

Our Favorite!!
As you turn right this is what you see....
Johns' Still trying to find a way to fit a Pool Table in front of that wall....Any Ideas 5 Dog Dad????;) :D

06-17-2004, 09:56 PM
Now,If you are In the Family Room and turn around,You will see Why we Love this room.....
We Never need a movie theater again!!!

06-17-2004, 10:00 PM

06-17-2004, 10:08 PM

06-17-2004, 10:21 PM

So now I'll take you Across to the Master Bedroom...

This is as you enter....

06-17-2004, 10:32 PM

I love the "theater"!

06-17-2004, 10:33 PM
Now,Lets' turn around and view the other side....
The master bath is at the front of the house....
You of course have noted all the doggie beds scattered throught the room....Maggie Puss' bed is Behind the Armoir so the Dogs don't disturb her Beauty Sleep!!!;)

It has Taken Us Both a Long Time and a Lot Of Hours!!!!

This is the back porch...You'll note Our Best Friend,Mr.Weber on the left....If it weren't for Him & Ma Bell..We wouldn't eat!!!!

You'll also see Hobos crate bed out to air....

06-17-2004, 11:02 PM
I think that everyone has seen the yard enough in doggie pics.....
This is the Shed that the old owners left....
Its' great!! Perfect Place for a Tractor,Eh 5 Dog Dad??

There is a Mister in it!!!
So I can put the kids pool there...or they can "Mist";)

06-17-2004, 11:06 PM
O.K....Last One....1 more shot outside...Its' Impossible to get 1 shot of the whole yard....

I Really Hope that I didn't Bore you guys...But to be Very Honest....I have only been here 1 year...and I have Never Been HAPPIER in My Life!!!!!

So if I'm a little Overzealous,I apologize!!!

06-17-2004, 11:29 PM

06-18-2004, 12:10 AM
Gorgeous! Thank you for inviting us. I think I've fallen in love with your formal dining room! It lingers in my mind. Actually the whole house is great. Thanks again.

06-18-2004, 03:04 AM
Wow!!! Your house is gorgeous!!! I love it, and can see why you love it so much too. :D Its beautiful. Thanks for the tour. :)

06-18-2004, 04:31 AM
What a beautiful home you have - I'm so jealous - a pool!!! WOW!
I hate to say this - but soooooo clean too!! I searched for the dust bunnies and didn't spy one! :D


06-18-2004, 06:09 AM

I made them wait outside while I took Photos!!!!!!!!!;)

You are too funny! :D :D :D That must be the answer because your beautiful home looks way too clean for a dust bunny to survive. LOL! I am in love with your home! Each time I clicked on a room I thought it was my favorite but each one following was just as pretty. Oh to have a beautiful pool like that and I would love to be a cook in your kitchen!!! Thank you for inviting us in. :)

06-18-2004, 06:32 AM
Any Time,Pam!!

Wouldn't a Blk.,Wht., or Chocolate Standard Go well w/The Decor?!?!?!?!?;) :) :D

Why not all three?! :p Do your dogs enjoy swimming? My poor dogs have never set foot in a pool. The largest body of water they have been in is the bath tub! :p :rolleyes:

What a beautiful home! I love the brick "entertainment wall" and the brick accents in the kitchen. I also love the pool off the master bedroom, is there a door there to get to the pool? That would be sooo cool.

You have every right to be proud and overzealous because you have a very beautiful home! :)

06-18-2004, 03:07 PM
What a gorgeous home you have! Compared to all the beautiful houses everyone has I think I'd be embarrased to show mine:o

Can you go right from your bedroom to the pool:eek: I love that pool!!!!

So indigenous! It looks like Florida. Wonderful!

06-18-2004, 03:58 PM
I finally got to see the pictures. Wow!!! What a cool house. If I could have one like that with all the yard space I would be to Florida in a moment. Five Dogdad are you listening????

06-18-2004, 04:40 PM
You have a beautiful home! That pool really looks inviting! Thanks for the tour!!


06-18-2004, 05:16 PM
You have every right to be proud of your lovely home and such nice yard space for the dogs. The blinds cracked me up. Good work dogs. Hannah and Tucker have managed to do a bit of blind bending of their own. Your leather loveseat and sofa are just the kind I would like to have, and I am a brick lover as well and that pool does look inviting, although not to worry, you wouldn't catch me in a bathing suit. Just need to ask, is there a room without a TV? :p

Thank you for the tour. I enjoyed it.

06-18-2004, 08:49 PM
Still Chuckling!!!!;)
Lets' See if I get these in Order.....
I would Challenge anyone to Find a room...Including Garage& kitchen...We are Pathetic!!
That Does Not have a T.V/ Audio System!!!:)
You've seen theCircuit City commercial,Right??
I think John got a Vision from That!!!
Uh,He Loves Sports!!
Cannot miss a Play or a Lap you know!!!;)
And for Me,I must have Music Wherever I go!!!!

Yes, we love the Entertainment area....the brick is unique in Fl.,...Gives me my memories of when I was up North.

In my opinion...IF you are going to have Dogs,Especially Big Dogs...Leather is the Only way to go....it pays for itself...you will buy a cloth sofa every 2 years...a Good Leather will last 10 to 15..
Plus I get a Great Discount where I work;)

Yes, The Master Bedroom opens Right to the pool...That is why we are adding a Jacuzzi this winter...Fall out of bed,into Jacuzzi...Into Pool...Yeah!!!!
I am attaching a pic of it...we actually have 2 sliders in the Master bedroom,1 opens to the patio,1 opens to the pool

4DogMom....I hope that 5DogDad is Watching....John Built this house!!!!....Remember,The Real Estate Agent of the Family!!!
;) Who knows when you might Need One!!!:) ;)

Now,Ms.Pam...Love Ya',Mean it...But 3 More!!!:eek: ;) :)
John would Disown Me!!!!
Unless,He got to Pick!!;)

Thanks All you Guys....You really made me Feel Good...and that we did the Right thing buying this house!!!!

06-18-2004, 09:16 PM
Oh wow!:eek: You have such a gorgeus home!!!:D I can see why you love it so much, I do too! I especially love the pool. Well, your whole house is very nice! Its very ncely decorated.
Thanks for the tour!:D

I love your house :) and the furry occupants are the best, too! :D

06-19-2004, 05:52 AM
beautiful!!!!! aaaaah lovely florida!!!!

06-19-2004, 07:18 AM
Gorgeous pictures, Nicole!! I love your house!!!

I have wondered about lether furniture, but we never had an issue with it with the dogs in the Mustang. Everyone tells me tht their nails will rip it. It seems to have worked well for you?

06-19-2004, 05:58 PM
I would have it No other way...Good Leather Horses don't destroy....so little dog nails are fine;)
Its' good to treat it w/Lexol and clean w/Murphys' Oil Soap...They both condition.....
But in the Long run its' Cheaper...and lasts SO much Longer!!!!!

You will see the House in Person Soon enough;)
When you visit w/Mom & Dad!!!!;) :) :D

06-20-2004, 06:38 AM
Cincys'Mom & 4DogMother,
Did you see the Shelf Over the T.V.??????
All the Beautiful Frames.....and Firehouse Tub????

06-20-2004, 07:56 AM
Ah!!! Now I have finished another wonderful tour and this IS fun!! You have a beautiful home and I enjoyed every room and every minute of the tour.:) (I do think the TV screen needs to be a bit bigger, though;) ) Thanks for opening your home - it is fabulous!!

06-25-2004, 06:50 PM
Thank You for such a Great Idea for a Thread...It makes me feel like I know fellow Pet Talkers even more....

I too Loved Everybodys' Houses!!!!!
