Must... resist... "Who let the dogs in" joke...




Shauna found the trio, Roy found the pair, and I found the singleton. I like dogs just fine, but "Dogs lived here!" isn't a selling point. Trust me on this one. Two big dogs were living in my house before I moved in, and... well, we made sure we didn't go barefoot in the yard for a surprisingly long time.

our house had a dog prior to us living here... and I would never purchase a post-dog house again... after new flooring, new paint, and new landscape it's okay - but I still need to replace the sliding glass doors that are all scratched up because Fido was left outside too long. To think that somebody would actually ADVERTISE the potential disaster... crazy!

around here we call dog poo "rocks"...heres the story..I was at the next door neighbors (they have a dog) and there was a rock in the grass and I didn't want the lawnmower to catch it up in the blade..well my finger went right through that rock...I swear it looked like a rock..needless to say, I don't pick up rocks at their place anymore...no sirrrreeee! lol...hope this wasn't TMI...

Nothing like the smell of dog when you walk into a house! It will make potential buyers who are dog people feel at home when they enter. And it looks like the trio has a puppy...adding the pet stain and smell remover scent! Oh oh that smell! ;-)

Yes, but "Doberman lived here" is a selling point. ;)

The first home slays me. $169,000 for a single-wide trailer with the cheapest, ugliest, most decorator-defiant kitchen I have ever seen in my life. Why is one upper cabinet ten inches below the rest? Why the cheapest, most HIDEOUS white (ugh!!! Ick!!!) fridge and stove available? Why all that white (and four different shades of white to boot!) with dark cabinets?

It's like Cheapy-cheapy Contractor Heaven!

Looks like (I could be wrong) the trio of dogs is not actually from the property on the listing...it's a copyrighted image and the grass and fence don't look like the same yard as the listing.

"Hi, Joan? Yes, it's Mary. Well, the reason I'm calling is because I would really like to go walk through the house with the giant Doberman Pinscher. What? Oh, yes! I just love huge killer dogs. Yeah, I'm a softy, I know. Oh, ha ha ha, I love picking up dog poo. It's a hobby. Sometimes I take the extra big ones, dry them out, and turn them into furniture. Yes. End tables and such. Sure, I could make one for you. OK, so about the listing? Yes, noon works for me. OK, see you then. Goodbye."
