Nov 6 – The dogs are allowed on the furniture, obviously.  We went with microfiber upholstery and I tell ya, if you have pets you can’t go wrong with it.  The pet hair doesn’t stick to it, doesn’t get all entwined (our old couch was a woven fabric and the long white Sadie hairs would just tie themselves in).  We are quite pleased.   (Second legwarmer in progress there!  New book is awesome!)
