Winston the SampleHouse CEO here! My tail is wagging like crazy because I heard a rumor that fall is approaching. I know it takes a little longer to get here in Texas, but boy, it’s worth the wait. That’s why decided to list all the things I love about fall to share with my fellow SampleHouse fans.
First of all, cooler weather means longer walks! Let’s face it: summertime in Texas is pretty miserable for dog. I always hear people say, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity!” Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s not the humidity — it’s the fur. You try running errands in August wearing a full-length fur coat! Once it starts to cool off, I get to spend more time outside doing my favorite things like playing fetch and socializing at the bark park.
Fall also means my little humans are usually cooped up in school all day, which makes me a little sad, but also makes for excellent napping. But as soon as they come home in the afternoon, it’s play time! The kids have energy to burn and I’m a Labrador, which means I was born with enough energy to power a city block.
Back-to school season also means home-cooked meals, but what I’m really after here are the leftovers. Some of the best meals of my life were leftovers, especially the table scraps from Thanksgiving dinner. I can almost smell the holidays from here!
Speaking of smells, fall always has my favorite scents. As the CEO of SampleHouse, I always make sure we have plenty of delicious seasonal scents in the form of candles, diffusers, melts and more from Trapp, Voluspa and Tyler Candle Company. If you’d like help picking one out, I can paw you in the right direction. I don’t want to brag or anything, but I’m kind of an expert in the smells department.
New fall accessories at SampleHouse are another wonderful part of the season. I hear burnt orange, maroon, plum, jewel tones and earth tones are gorgeous this time of year. (It’s all black and white and to me.) We’ve also got some new bandanas, toys, dog bowls, and treat totes in stock for your favorite four-legged friend.
If you ask me, I’d say we’re pretty well-prepared for fall at SampleHouse!
