Now That Takes the Biscuit!

Shopper columnists are often pleasantly surprised by the favorable reactions they receive from our readers, but according to Decorating Den's Angie and Peter Lowry, the response of one reader to their September column "may take the biscuit"- as in dog biscuit. Entitled "The Dog Days of Summer," the column featured references to and a photo of Angie and Peter's beloved black lab, Ellie May. When Anne Comer of Great Bridge read the piece, she offered the Lowrys a special gift: a folk-art print of a black lab playing with a ball. 

"I had inherited the art and wanted it to go to someone who had a black lab," says Anne- the proud owner of a golden retriever. "They were so nice! They showed up to accept it with a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers. We had a really nice visit."

"Anne is such a nice lady," Peter adds. "We plan on meeting with her again in our hometown of Smithfield."

"I always look forward to reading The Shopper," Anne says, adding with a laugh, "and now it's brought more people together!"
