Sorry for late and spotty puppy posting. This summer has been full rodeo since it started. I think Chuy had only pulled a muscle, and he seems fully recovered. However, he quite liked being lifted onto and off of things like the bed or the sofa. Now that he's feeling better, I'll catch him jumping on and off things, but he still does a "Princess and the Pea" routine, waiting patiently for his curbside service at every turn. Ha!

Sorry, but I should have taken a photo prior to spot cleaning. We shall see how this goes. The first real area of concentration was the dome area, (which I DID snap before cleaning) which was the worst staining on the piece. I soaked the piece with glycerin, waiting 30 minutes, then blotted the glycerin through with a damp cloth, frequently changing the cloth underneath. You can see on the under-cloth the progressive blottings. This part is a test, and if all goes well, I'll do this method from one end of the piece to the other, probably in stages. Hopefully this will yield brighter colors, as well.

Chuy had a health scare yesterday, and we had to go to the vet. Hopefully it's just a pulled muscle in his back, but there's also the danger of IVDD. He seems to get relief from the pain killer they gave me for him. Hoping for the best.
