Today was a fun day because I helped mum create a new dog den in the laundry room. (She’s still very excited about even having a laundry room, because when we lived on the boat full time she used to have to go to the laundrette!) As most of you know April has a huge crate In the lounge that she sleeps in at night, and Blue sleeps in a dog bed on the floor in the bedroom with the humans and I. (April didn’t want to share her crate and Blue is much calmer and more trustworthy than April!) We’re all happy with the arrangement.
It’s all been working out really well, but there wasn’t anywhere safe to put both the pups when both the humans have to go out. As you know, mum works from home and in Italy dogs are allowed to go in to most places, so they often go with her when she goes out. They’re not, however, allowed into supermarkets or pharmacies etc. So we needed a solution…
… So we’ve transformed the laundry room into a dog den!
We bought a couple of new dog beds. Then we popped in the travel crate and made the old smaller crate (that wasn’t really getting used anymore) into a den and we sprinkled in some toys. I think it looks like a great dog den now!
The best bit is, April and Blue seem to really like it too!
They won’t have to spend much time in there, but when they do they’ll be comfortable and have fun! Plus, I’ll have the rest of the house to myself!
