We are a back door family -- we hardly ever use the front door.
Our house has no mudroom.
-- we need a place to step inside and take off shoes.
-- we need a place that can be cleaned up easily.
This is where the dog sleeps.
-- he does not like when his area is messy.
It is now a work in progress.
-- like many other things in our house.
We must tidy up.
-- when we are finished "playing" for awhile.
-- for the dog.
