Puppy Supplies

I’ve had a little buying spree ordering supplies for Dash when he gets here on April 7.

Dash the Doxie.

He is a shaded red long-haired dachshund so I tried to keep his personal items in the green color family.

Green is a good color for a redhead.

I purchased 2 green bowls from Amazon which I think are being sent from China. Both bowls with shipping are under $10.

Paisley collar and leash from Country Brook Design.

Being a lover of paisley I purchased a collar and leash set in green paisley which he will surely grow into. This set is also available at Amazon.

This doorway into the dining room needs to be blocked.

While he’s little I plan to limit Dash’s access to the conservatory and the conservatory bathroom. (Notice his room is green, too.)

I hope a little barricade will not be too restrictive.

I bought a baby gate that should span our 63-inch opening into the dining room.

I’ll be looking for an appropriate cushion to soften the bottom of the basket.

I don’t think he’ll feel too confined because I bought him a wicker dog basket from Etsy much like the one my former dog had back in the 1980s.  The actual store is in Bosnia Herzegovina and will be shipping from there.

Perhaps we’ll put a dog run in the yard to protect Dash from other animals in the neighborhood.

I’m sure we’ll be getting a few more things as time goes on when he gets old enough to have some training.

What brand of dog food do you like?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. He’s so cute! Haha–I don’t eat dog food, but we’ve been feeding Duke a Purina One SmartBlend True Instinct grain-free food (what a mouthful!). It helps with his digestion.
