The Old Doghouse

Well, we told you about the new doghouse that will hold people and dogs AND we told you we would show your our very own doghouse that is not for people. We like our doghouse. It is extra long so we can get inside and it has a nice thick cushion for us so we can rest our delicate doggie butts. It also has a long roof over the front door so rain cannot get inside. Here is a picture of the doghouse. It needs a new coat of paint and Mom never put the shingles on it. (The shingles are still nicely stacked in the garage where Grandpaw put them.)

In case you can't tell that it is extra long, we are modeling next to it. See how it is longer than we are? It makes it very nice when Mom is mean and locks us outside while it is raining.

The doghouse was built by Mom and the ex-boyfriend who gave Roxie to Mom. They had some "how to build a doghouse" plans but did the modifications themselves. Mom says that after building the doghouse with him, she is sure she could do it herself. Her only concern is getting the wood screws into the wood. That took a little bit of muscle.

Here is one last shot of our doghouse. This picture is special because you can see the path we have worn down in Mom's grass. That path is the shortest distance from the back door, across the patio and around to the back of the garage.

One last thing, two of Mom's patio chairs are usually sitting next to the doghouse. They protect it a little more from the weather. Mom says she moved the chairs so you could see the doghouse. We think she moved the chairs because the cushions are all ripped up and look horrible. She doesn't want you to know that they look as bad as they do! But, in her defense, she isn't the one who jumps up on them and scratches around until we ... scratches around to get comfortable.

Wow!! it looks pretty special to us!! Are you going to take it with you when you go to the new doghouse?

We would like to have one that would hold all of us too but Mommy won't buy us one and if she made one it would just fall about...she's not much of tools...but that's ok cause we loke her just the way she is!!!

How is the new doghouse coming.

Hi, friends.
You have a nice doghouse. Do you 3 use to stay inside at the same time?
I do the same with the cushions and my grandma is not happy about that!
Have a good night

Nice house! Same question as everyone else, LOL.

Mom has never *seen* all three of us in it. She has seen two of us in it and she *thinks* all three of us have been in it at the same time but it would be a tight fit. They built it thinking she would only have two of us. Andy wasn't supposed to steal part of her heart and end up living here (but we are glad he did). We will take this one to the new house but Mom says she might try her hand at building another one that is a little bigger (or a whole lot bigger so we and our cousins, Maggie and Jake, can fit)! We wonder how big it would need to be for that ...

I think I would like to have a doghouse outside where I could go escape from Tanner for a little while

Hey guys,
That is a nice doghouse. Your Mom makes a good carpenter. Hmm...must get squeezy huh? And I don't get it..why does she put you outside when it rains???

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Oh, Luckie, don't worry. She doesn't put us outside because it is raining. She puts us outside because we have been in the house all day and need to do our business. If she doesn't lock us outside, we will run back into the house and do it where it is dry. For some reason, Mom gets upset when we do that, so she leaves us outside until she thinks we won't make work for her.

Good Heavens-you actually have a D-O-G house? We would never stand for that. Especially in the rain. We'll take our turn on the couch, chair, bed.

That is a real nice doghouse. Being extra long is great since all you guys are. :)

You guys have a lot of houses.

There is something on our terrace that smells of the earlier doggie - but I have never been in.

How cool to have a personally designed doghouse.
