Dogs seem to be following me to work lately ... of course I don't mind, because I've been a dog lover all my life.  Most of my baby photos show me with Cookie and Chubby, the family English bulldogs...

Other family dogs represented various breeds, and one of our Irish setter pups was selected for a Disney movie years ago called "Big Red"...portland oregon home stagers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I guess it's no surprise that in my work as a professional home stager in Portland Oregon, it's only natural that dogs continue to tag along wherever I go ...

In this Portland home that we recently staged, 4 colorful dogs greeted buyers as they entered ... home staging portland oregon

In this home, 3 dogs took up residence, giving this family room an inviting atmosphere to appeal to the target buyers in this Bridlemile neighborhood real estate staging portland OR 97221

This girl's bedroom had a couple of pups ready to play with anyone who stopped by oregon home stagers 97239

In this downtown condo, a lonely dog waits on a side table, hoping someone will notice him portland OR home staging

And these 3 Dogs with their cakes just make everyone hungry Dogs are Coming Along to my Staged Homes in Portland OR

I've had some horses & birds join the menagerie lately, but that's a story for another blog post!

They are doing great Maureen, thank you for asking. Our new addition has a surgery consult tomorrow at the Univ. of MN to have cysts on her neck and skull removed that keep getting infected. Vet won't touch the one on the skull. Mom is a little nervous with anesthesia at her advanced age but we will see what the surgeon says!

Hi Maureen,

I just love the Dog theme in your staging.  It feels so much like home to see those fur cuties in your Artwork, in the little girls room, and the very classy Dog statue in the Condo.  Like Roger I just never thought of incorporating a Dog theme into my staging....  Great Idea!!!

Hi Shar ~ Oh, I'll keep my fingers crossed for your new girl.  She is going to be brave and with you by her side, she'll get through anything :-)

Hi Linda ~ Glad you like the doggies too!  I think they're fun to use in homes that appeal to families, or young professionals.  Especially since Portland is such a dog-friendly city with many dog parks and places that allow dogs ... they're an important part of our community!

Hi Elyse ~ Dog people are the best!  This evening I took my dog Maggie down to the nearby park for a run and met the nicest neighbors with their dogs!!  Our lives would be empty without our canine friends.

Hi Peg ~ Glad the dogs passed your approval :-)   I was shopping today and have to admit, I bought a couple of adorable dog book-ends.  I just can't help myself!!

Hi Ginger ~  Maggie is such a sweet girl, and is starting to come out of her shell.  She's delightful and although still cautious around strangers, at least now she doesn't run and hide :-)   She'd love to meet you, too!

I love all  your dog art (just glad it's not one of the dogs playing cards). Since many people are dog lovers, this little touch may elicit more smiles than you can imagine.

Hi Pacita ~ Thanks .... I do love using dog-related art or statues and believe that they help make buyers feel they're in a warm and inviting home.

Hi Steve & Jan ~ Amazing that you remember Big Red as being your first movie.  Near the end of the movie, "Red" had a litter of pups with "Molly" -- and Molly was the dog that came from our family dog Kilty.  I was very excited as a kid that one of the pups made it to the big screen.

Your Penny Lane is just the cutest dog!!

Maureen, what cute accessories to add to staging a home!   Most families today have dogs, and a reason for some to get out of condos!

Hi Joan ~ I think when people view a home, they like to relate to things that are there ... and many people like cute dogs, you're right!  thanks for your feedback.

Maureen, I also like the dog theme.  We have photos of our dogs and most recently my husband purchased a painting of a chocolate lab laying in the back of a truck...truly adorable and hanging in a guest bedroom.
