The couch.

25 Jan

Our new couch came in December. We had planned to put the old one (generously donated from my mother’s basement collection) in our basement but we found out that it wouldn’t fit the night before the new one was delivered. So I had an extra couch in the dining room for two weeks. But now it’s in the garage- which is an improvement. It needs to find a new home…I’m just waiting on the all clear from my mom to have Salvation Army pick it up. I think it may be slightly sentimental to her.

So anyhow, the new couch: Here’s Bunny Dog waiting for the nice men to bring it in:

Crate & Barrel only had the love seat version of our couch at the store. We custom ordered on faith. This is the website image:

It’s comfortable and gives us plenty of room to spread out. Dog fur is a challenge. It weaves itself in with the couch fibers. We had to get a special handheld vac (I think it’s Bissell) that has rubber nubs that make the fur more readily available to the suction. Good story.
