A messy house is a loved house

We have a ton of pets in our house. Three dogs, two chinchillas, a bird, a cat, and a whole bunch of fish. As a result, my house tends to look messy most of the time. (Though that may be a result of a husband and an 11-year old daughter....) I could probably use a really good deep carpet cleaning to help my house look a bit better. With that many pets though, the carpet wouldn't stay clean for very long. People will just have to accept our messiness!
