"The more, the merrier."
That ought to be the official 9 Dogs Howling motto.
I'm also thinking that we could have our own reality TV show in which Ty Pennington, Cesar Millan and Stanley Steemer get together to do an Extreme Makeover on our tired old house. Though I don't know why it bothers me that this blue chair is so grungy. Only the dogs use it nowadays, and they certainly don't care about the dirt. The more dirt, the better.
