The puppies have a new dog den!

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!

Bisous, Bailey

    Speaking from a dog’s point of view that looks like a great room! plenty of space and a floor that cleans easy. It must be fun to be a dog living in Europe. Here in USA dogs are considered not acceptable to be in stores. Can dogs go to restaurants and sit inside? I hear they can in France

  2. That looks like a nice doggie play area.


  3. Beautiful spot, for beautiful pups! And you get more time to yourself, Montyx


  4. Sounds as if you are making the house a comfortable and happy place for the entire family. Sending all of you lots of love. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo


  5. I love that dog den, B. I’m glad the doggies get along so well that they can stay alone together when nobody is there to watch them. That’s awesome.

    Love and licks,


  6. we used to drape a blanket over Dakota’s crate when he was young, he LOVED it!


  7. What a great solution to the problem. Those laundry rooms come in handy for many things besides laundry! he he


  8. That looks like a wonderful space for the pups to enjoy. It really looks cozy!


  9. What a spacious laundry room, dear Bailey! The dogs look very comfy, and as you said, YOU can have the rest of the house to yourself! You clever boy. Pat


  10. That is an awesome dog den!


  11. Lucky pups! Not everyone gets their very own private doggy den! Nice room and it has everything so that they should be perfectly comfy when they have to stay home.

    Hugs, Sammy


  12. Very nice! Everyone should have their own private space and it works out for you, too, Bailey.


  13. That’s a good outcome – the rest of the house. 🙂
    Have a good weekend.
