I love dogs… I don’t have any because I’m on the move a lot, but in a few years I’d love to have a couple of dogs and a mudroom that can help me take care of them. It might seem extravagant to some people, but it wouldn’t necessarily have to be a big expense, and of course you could still use the room for other things like laundry. Could you use something like this in your home?
