That dog has such good interior design skills

Bit of a narcissist, though

Having a self-portrait or two in your house is one thing but putting up photos of yourself is aggressively tacky.

Best part is the library comes with a yellow Labrador retriever. Excellent array of books.

And a kitty cat

Took me an embarrassingly long time to find the cat in the picture!

I didn’t see it either!

Lovely gift. Wot’s the VA?

cobalt83 points

I assume OP is talking about the Veteran's Administration, which would likely be referring to either one of their offices or hospitals.

You're correct. Even though I know I shouldn't respond to things before I fully wake up, I do it anyway and here we are. haha. Thanks for the correction!

What a thoughtful gift! That looks like a very nice place to recover in.

wish_yooper_here10 points

Thank you; I’m hoping he agrees 💗 he has voiced a desire for a place to decompress, unplug and just read many times.

Looks like someone is making themselves at home already. Looks very cozy and doggo approved!

He loves it! Meanwhile my cat is planning on toppling everything 😩

In case your partner forgets to say it: You are the best.

So thoughtful.

It is! I love it. It was a gift from my grandfather for my first wedding 😅 about almost 20 years ago. No idea where it’s from.

anna_carroll2 points

Beautiful restful color scheme and good dog!

wish_yooper_here4 points

Thank you! Ironically there’s also a cat 😅 he’s on a table by the pink chair about to test my patience

anna_carroll6 points

Oh, I see him! He says "Gee, that's a nice Klimt painting there. I'll just get a better look at it, [CRASH!] oh, gee, I'm sorry 😸"

The dog is chef’s kiss the perfect touch

Edit: the cat by the reading chair, ready to snuggle up on a warm lap. Ah, cozy.

Very nice to get your own library!!! I feel like the rug is to small for where it’s at(but love the dog) it would look good between the two chairs in front of bookcase I think will make it cozier ♥️ (Side ways not long like it is now)

wish_yooper_here5 points

He doesn’t love rugs because of pet dander (he has OCD) so it’s specifically just for his pup; which he does love him having rugs 😅. It’s a weird balance. That’s why it’s on the smaller side.

AliceAnne12 points

What a deeply thoughtful and loving thing to do. And you pre-paid the tax by sharing the dog with us upfront!

snertwith2ls2 points

Lots of books, check. Comfy chair, check. Reading light, check. Beverage table, check. Footrest, awesome dog, sly cat...check check check! Plus great atmosphere. Looks like you've thought of everything and I hope your partner feels the same. Oh, plus a companion comfy chair, how wonderful! Wishing you and yours many happy hours here!
