Have I crossed a line?

I'm a bit of a clean freak, in a very healthy way! (Ha!) I never thought we would own dogs, much less 3 dogs, and then allow them in our bedrooms, and ultimately on our beds! I have dog car seats, a dog stroller, dog clothes, tons of toys, lots of grooming supplies, etc. I guess I'm a tad bit obsessed?

I am now wondering if I've crossed a line into "Serious Crazy Dog Lady"? Is there such a thing? I guess if there is I should be proud but I'm a tad bit embarrassed. This is the ONLY place I'll be showing these photos! We actually bought steps so they could get on and off of our bed safely!

I don't think so. Our dogs are our Children. We do for our dogs like we would our human children. I know others on here have doggy steps to the bed as well. I remember reading the post.
Your not a crazy dog lady... just a good mommy!!!

Okay Ann......I just want to know a couple of things--

First--when can you come and clean my house?
Second--what sleep number are the dogs?

Your house is beautiful and your havs are happy...so don't question what others think....

Those are great photos. You aren't a crazy dog lady at all.
My DH built steps up to our bed out of a shelving unit because he didn't trust that anything pre-made would be sturdy enough for his girls. (Well, Sedona anyway as she can't jump onto the bed). Our steps are huge! The original intent was to take them down when guests came over but they've stayed up for almost 5 years. The steps are a conversation piece when guests see them.

Yep, you are totally over the line, never coming back, you are into the rim of the total dog world…….I do love the steps, I will need them if Galen is to ever be a bed partner.

Very cute pictures…..I never realized how much Gracie’s face coloring is like Smarty’s, I thought she had more of the reds in her coat.

Ann, I think your bed qualifies as another level in your house by the number of steps needed to access it. Split levels have approximately that number of stairs to go from one level to another. Seriously though, you're even worse than I am, but then again you're way cleaner I'm sure. I throw sheets over my bedding when the guys are up and snoozing away.

Love your furniture and your colors. Of course I have them in my house too.

I have the steps too. But I am so crazy that I didn't even think it was crazy!! Here's a tip - the steps are less obtrusive if you put them at the foot of the bed sideways so they dont jut out into the room. It will help you from stubbing your toes when you get up in the middle of the night (been there, done that). My husband and I call ours the "stairway to heaven".
