UT OH....I think I've gone over the top. Our house is filled with so much dog "stuff" even I'm starting to get embarrassed! :blush:

We have at least a dozen dog beds - several in every room

three different size strollers, a plastic water bottle for the stoller.

several carriers (6 or 7 that I can think of) & a pouch with tiny food/water bowls that clips onto a carrier.

lots of shampoos and conditioners

two types of grooming tables & grooming supplies of every type

two wooden pee pee pad boxes and one plastic one

two xpens (one metal and one canvas)

multiple food/water bowls

toys everywhere you look!

a basket full of leashes

at least three walkings vests for each dog plus walk in harness (I know they have more then that :blush:)

a closet full of clothes & baskets of sweaters & halloween costumes

a Bow box....filled with three layers of hair bows.

bags of treats, dry food, canned food, raw dehydrated food, bottled water....raw hide bones for chewing on.

doggie basket on my bike

life vests for swimming

One Large Lookout car seat, two smaller over the head rest car seats, two hard crates for travel.

The UPS truck came yesterday and delivered a doggie bath tub for the kitchen counter. Can't wait to try it out. Oh and there's the doggie shower shelf in our outside shower too...:w00t:

The scary thing is I know there's more I just can't think of everything at the moment....:blink:

Please tell me that I'm not the craziest person here....:blink:.....please?:HistericalSmiley:

WOWZA! That sure is a lot of stuff. I kept scrollign down thinking okay, that's gotta be it, but no, there was more stuff! Well you've had your fluffs for quite some time now so have accumulated a lot. Give me a few years and I'm sure I'll catch up. I sometimes come home with another squeeky toy for Aolani (he sure loves those) and finally bought a basket to put all his toys in only to find out it was too high for him so we placed it on it's side so that he can get into it. Every night I put the toys away (will be teaching him to do this himself) and by the time I leave inthe morning they are all already all over our hall runner - and I think that's quite a lot of stuff, but after reading your post, guess it's not so bad after all LOL. The "stuff" just shows how much we love our fluffs and want them to be happy :)

Good Idea. Then go get another carrier or something fun...

2 stand dryers (one Edemco 7001 and the Edemco economy one that I take to shows)
1 grooming table top
3 grooming tables (2 ringside and 1 bigger one)
2 Wonder Wheelers with table tops
1 stroller (hardly used)
At least a dozen beds
Baskets of toys
Cupboards of shampoos and grooming products
Dozens of bows
Approx 20 carriers
Basket of clothes

It just proves that you've gone to the dogs. :HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley::HistericalSmiley:

I know that you have more "stuff" than that. I don't even want to think about all the stuff we have. Let's see:

1. 14 dog beds throughout the house
2. 2 toy boxes filled with dog toys
3. 48 "to go" bags (yes I have a fettish)
4. 1 stroller
5. 5 crates/wire cages
6. 2 outdoor hammocks
7. 2 look out dog seats in my car
8. 2 look out dog seats in Jerry's Jeep
9. 12 harnesses for walking (with matching leashes) and 6 car harnesses
10. 6 retractable leashes
11. Various shampoos and conditioners
12. Grooming bags filled with all kinds of grooming supplies (brushes, combs, clippers, blades, sprays, facial scrubs, etc. etc.)
13. Bag containing all first aide supplies for fluffs
14. Special embroidered towels and washclothes
15. 2 armoires and one closet filled with clothes
16. 9 boxes of sweaters, tees, coats, pjs, boots, nightgrowns, etc.
17. 21 boxes of bows (completely filled)
18. Box with pee pee pads
19. 10 sets of bowls
20. Cookie Jar for treats
21. 4 kitchen drawers stuffed with doggie treats (bully sticks and such).
22. 3 rolling travel bags for the airplane
23. 4 grooming tables (2 are ring side tables)
24. 1 Stand Dryer and 2 table dryers
25. Lots of dog show equipment (that I don't use anymore) including generator, crate wheels, tent for outdoor shows, tack box, fold down crate, drop pens and lots more.
26. Other "stuff" that I can't think of right now.

So no, gf, I know you're not any crazier than I am. :brownbag::wacko1::rofl: And I'm certain that almost all of our SM friends would agree as they have just as much (if not more) "STUFF".:thumbsup:

Remember -- not ALL of my stuff was purchased for just Lacie and Tilly. I accumulated a lot of the "stuff" over 25+ years of showing the Lhasas. It's amazing how much money we have tied up in this "stuff"

Lynne!!! You're way ahead of me!! :aktion033: ....but then again, you've been collecting much longer :thumbsup:. ummmm, tell me, what is a "to go" bag? You have 48 of them?? ooooooo.....do I need one? :HistericalSmiley:. Well if I counted each poopie bag on the roll, I've got a really ALOT of them.:blush:

Actually I do need to get another Look out car seat, but just a regular size. The large one I have holds two. So I really do need one more. Ava rides in her small hard crate in the back seat. And I really don't care for the over-the-head rest seats....which I have two of if anyone wants one....

Pat -- you already have "to go" bags. That's my name for them. Only Lacie will go in them. They're the carriers (like puses) that the fluffs go in. Juicy Courture, Kwigy Bo, etc. etc. I used to have more because I would take Lacie everywhere and I had one to match all of my work outfits. It's my own special fettish.

And I NEED more dog "stuff" all the time. Like last week I NEEDED new bows from Marj.

Pat,

There are toys all over the floor of my living room, dining room,
and kitchen, and the toy box is still full. I have numerous dog beds,
pillows, mats, blankets, etc, for them throughout the house. The boys
also have blankets and water bottles in my car and both of my husband's
cars. I have bags of harness vests, harnesses, and leashes. Not
to mention many grooming supplies, a hairdryer, 3 x-pens, etc.

I think you've got a lot of good company... lol.

Debbie

I had a friend build me a shelf, actually it's two boards that lay next to each other and sit on boards nailed to each end of the shower. OMG, that sounds stupid! I need to take pictures for you.....it works out perfectly for summer baths! Hopefully I'll remember to do this over the weekend....to show you.
