I took my puppy antiquing

One day on the way back from the dog park my boyfriend and I was a sign for an estate sale. Being curious we followed it to what ended up being a consignment store. It was an unseasonably warm day for November so I refused to leave Beau in the car. We both agreed that we would try to bring him into the shop and see what happened.
