  1. Oh I love that sign! That is adorable!

    1. My cousin, who lost her parents in her early 20's and is pretty much like my sister, has a dog grooming business on her small ranch way up in the Sierras (with Buddy and Taxi the horses). I bought the sign for her place. It's perfect on the wall.

  2. We like the sign too! Maybe Abby might need a bigger chair!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    1. The chair has a matching full size couch for the family room so we're not sure WHY she decided to nap there, but it was hilarious.

    Brilliance... the sign is pretty clever too... &*> YAM xx

  4. I do that too! Then I flounder like a beached whale if the doorbell rings or someone opens any kind of foodable item!

  5. WE love that Sign... BaaaaWaaaah.

    Now Abby... I see that there is NO room fur ME to get in that chair and Cuddle with you... Just Sayin, Frankie
