Election Day Tuesday was exciting for many reasons, including that President-Elect Obama promised to get his daughters a puppy. A puppy in the White House: we can't wait! Our puppy turns one this Sunday, and we've made many changes to our apartment this year to accommodate him and us. Below are some puppy-friendly home decor products, tips, and DC resources for the Obama girls and other soon-to-be puppy owners...

- Keep Your Entryway Clean: with a Paw Plunger, by wiping your dog's paws with baby wipes, or with a dirt stopper floor mat.

- Declutter and Reorganize: Move breakable objects off the floor and onto high shelves. Find places in cupboards or closed storage for all medication and bottles with potentially toxic substances. Puppies can chew through bottles that are "child-proof."

- Puppy-Proofing: Puppy-proof your home in the way that expecting parents baby-proof their homes, for example, with walk-through gates.

- Find Comfy and Stylish Dog Beds:
- Indoor/Outdoor Dog Bed from Muleh
- Wowo Dog Pod
- window seat for small dogs

- Nature's Miracle in Your Home: It's great for cleaning up pet accidents. AT LA covered it to rave reader reviews.

- Cozy Rugs puppy Samson loves our color sample rug

- Etsy Pet Decor Items: dog beds, furniture, rugs and other items for the crafty and stylish pet owners.

- DC Doggie Daycare: Not all of us of secret service dog-sitters on-hand. For those who don't, we recommend Dogs by Day (& Nite) and Capital Petsitters LLC.

- Green Pets: a local store with organic pet products.
