Vacation rental has perfect decorations

Recently, my family spent a week in Puerto Rico, where we spent part of our time on the island of Vieques. Our lodging was a vacation rental called Casa de Kathy, and there was much to love about this cute two-bedroom house near the beach. But what I’ll remember most about it is the decorations in the bathroom.

 
Kathy and her late dog Canelo (Spanish for cinnamon) had left their footprints on the wall of the loo along with the traditional symbol of welcome—the pineapple. It was so charming, and the first detail of the place that stuck in my mind. And it will remain in my memory along with thoughts of snorkeling in the paradise of the Caribbean.
 
What decorations do you have in your home of the canine variety?
