Rio has a new home! Actually, it is her first home. We got her when she was about 2 months old in the bitter month of January. We kept her in the garage with lots of blankets and stuffed animals to keep her cozy and warm. Then when it warmed up and she got older, she was out of the garage and on her own, finding a spot to sleep where ever she could. But every dog needs a dog house.
Neal has been drawing up a few plans and when Clark was here for a few weeks, he decided building a doghouse was a good idea too. This is what they came up with. To me it looks like a dog house that would work in Whooville. Mark thinks it looks like the tweety bird house.
The reason why the dog house is up off the ground is because there is insulation under the flooring for our long, cold winters. Rio will be nice and cozy when it is well below freezing.
Ah, cedar shingles. I'd say that Rio has a pretty sweet home to rest her weary body in at the end of a long playful day at the creek!
