I come from a long line of pet owners. Even before I was born, my parents had dogs, my grandparents had dogs and my great grandparents had dogs. My Mom preferred small dogs and my Dad liked big dogs, so we always had a menagerie of strays, rescues and family dogs hanging around the house.
Trends in homes constantly change. It used to be that homes had formal living rooms and dining rooms, which has given way to the concept of a more casual “great room”. And who would have anticipated years ago that there would be such a thing as a video room or rooms to accommodate 70 – 80” TVs?
