Hi Friends, Winston here.
Do you feel that? It’s almost Spring! If you’re anything like me, you know this means it’s time to change things up a little bit. This doesn’t just mean serious cleaning (whew!); spring also means new colors, new scents, and new fabrics! My paws sure do love a change of pace this time of year. Those heavy blankets are great when it’s cold, but soon they can go back into the winter closet. So that means you’ll probably be looking for a few fun things to help bring Spring inside. But maybe leave the pollen outside, it makes my dog nose itch!
One of my favorite things about Spring is color. I know, I know, I’m a dog. But I’ve been told that Spring colors are just wonderful. My people seem to love them a lot, I think that’s why there are so many new colors at SampleHouse now. Bright and bold colors like turquoise, pink, bright yellow, tangerine, and kelly green. Those colors sure do sound nice. I saw a few pillows with big, beautiful flowers on them and I heard people talking about a rug with all kinds of those colors on it. That would be perfect for Spring, don’t you think? There’s really no easier way than a new rug or a few pillows to make a huge change in a matter of minutes. Plus, I can roll around on them.
I may not be able to see color, but you better believe I can smell like a champ! I love all the new candles we have for Spring here at SampleHouse. I saw a row of candles the other day with names like Magnolia Cypress, Grape Hyacinth, Daffodil, and Celery Thyme. That sounds like Spring to me! New scents are always a perfect way to help welcome a new season, and to help clear out the last of the winter blues. Trust me, smell is very, very important to being happy. That’s why I wag my tail when I meet a new friend, they smell so great! Another thing I saw was a painted, wooden sign for a garden. We have a lot of them with cute sayings like “Make Things Grow” that would be perfect for Spring. I think I’ll get one tomorrow.
If I owned stuff, I’d probably want a new purse for Spring, too. I see a lot of ladies in SampleHouse getting new purses for Spring; I bet it’s like getting a new toy or a new leash. That’s always my favorite day. Anyway, I heard all our new purses are really pretty and have bold, fun colors on them. I might get one for my mom for Mother’s Day. That always sneaks up on me and then I have to make my mom a card by paw. This year, I think I’ll shop early.
I hope to see everyone soon at SampleHouse for some Spring shopping!
