It’s been a long time in coming but we’ve finally sorted out an indoor play arena for our pampered pooches to enjoy when the rain comes down.
After much headscratching and design work by our respective father’s I decided to take an easy construction route to partioning off part of our barn for Fortnum and Mason to play in. We made use of two old gates – one we had and one I scrounged off my neighbour Jim.
We’ve now got a solid and secure area for the boys to go instead of them getting cramp from sitting in their dog house when it rains.
They had their first outing in their today and suffice to say they are not really that keen. There was lots of new smells and although they could see out and I left the barn doors open for them they were decidedly not sure about being caged in.
I’m sure they’ll get used to it and in time will come to appreciate the enormous effort and thought gone into getting them somewhere new to potter around. Admittedly it looks a bit sparten at the moment – a couple of mats and a bit of carpet but I’m sure when they put up their posters, bring out their soft toys and let their bones lying around it will be just like things are in the family room in the house!
