It adds some interest to the bare wall behind the bed, and the shape references the shape of the mirror over the dresser on the other side of the room.
Thanks again, Stac! In other news, Ruby got her first diaper.
Its not something she'll have to wear all the time. She just gets a little too excited these days when new people come over, so I picked up a pack of doggie diapers to help with the dribbling. I think she looks adorable :) Other than that, she's doing really well these days. Seth and I were talking about what a rough year she had last year -- she went completely bald on her back from the flea allergy, she got bitten by a snake, she had a pretty traumatic experience at her 3rd annual (and final) Smokies game, and then she almost died from whatever it was that had her so sick those two weeks in July. And now its a new year and her coat is full again and she's put the weight back on that she lost...its just amazing what a tough old girl she is. As far as I'm concerned, there will never be another dog as great as my little Ruby Fruit.
I love you, Ruby!
