Once upon a time there lived a Boy and his Dog. Boy had always wanted a German Shepard so, being a very good Boy, he got a puppy for his 18th birthday. Boy and Dog were very happy.

Boy went to college 9 months later, leaving Dog. Boy happy! Loves college!

Dog seems content sitting by fire while Mom reads. Doesn't she?

Once upon a few years ago, nice designer Susan (from Toms PriceLand of course) took one look at the life of Koropp (3 kids plus muddy sports and snowy friends and 4 dogs) and suggested buying extra carpet for stair runner. Clever Susan.

One day Other Dog wanted to show Mom something...

Boy's Dog ATE STAIR!

Mom shouts bad words at Bad Dog and calls local, independent, 50 years in business Russell Martin Rugs and Carpet. Fairy Rugmother Beth answers and is so sympathetic. Beth is hosting Thanksgiving too! She convinces Shining Armor Installer to get up early and save Bad Dog by repairing stair with extra carpet the next morning. All Hail Small Businesses!

Carpet repaired! Dog Lives!

Mom now walks and runs Dog every day, snow or shine.

Boy home from college for Thanksgiving Week! Mom excited for Dog to awaken Boy each morn' by jumping on Boy's head. 

The End.

Shop small my friends, because every dollar you spend is a vote for the world you want to live in and I want to exist alongside people like Beth. Not so much Dog at the moment, but Beth, Russell Martin and PPB ... yes!!

PPB’s two stores are lovely and full of new books, toys and gifts for you and all your visiting holiday friends and family to gobble.

Special thank you to OpenMindImages.com for beautiful pictures of Boy.
