And today, in October 2007...
...here is Oliver, always ready to greet anyone coming in the front door.
We still want to replace the front door, and we have the perfect door propped in the basement, courtesy of my grandparents (found it in their barn, used to be on their house, grandma got tired of it, replaced). Gone are the thermal drapes and window cling. We think the banister and stairs look better without paint and carpet.
Oliver isn't so crazy about all that slippery wood floor, and he prefers the carpets because a doggie gets better traction for running and tugging.
