My dog prefers a hole he has dug in the ground in summer and a hard tiled floor just outside my office door in colder/wetter weather. He'd probably eat those "posh" kennels.......

You did see the one on page 1, (http://www.dwr.com/images/newsletter/doghouse.html?CMP=NLC-G4P362744828) didn't you?
Aimed at RV fans, apparently. :)

That's one adorable puppy. And yes, I wouldn't dare buy an expensive dog house for either of our dogs. Their current houses have suffered severe depreciation under their occupation.... I purposely bought somewhat cartoonish hard plastic houses with no corners but they chewed the rounded "corners" anyway. Cheap and ugly is good; doesn't pay to be too enamored of a dog house.

Actually that one reminded me of our compost bin. ;)

I remember way back (1930?) my grandfather had a substantial cage in the garden where some of the dogs were kept at night. Now even large dogs sleep on my bed. How the world changes.

It occurs to me that in Johannesburg houses tend to have large dogs as guards and they live outside all the time. They are believed to be big enough and ugly enough to look after themselves.

My dogs have always slept in the bedroom with me, but they have their doghouses outside for daytime snoozing. Only one of our current two seems to want to get out of the rain, though. After a downpour one dog will come in almost perfectly dry and the other will be soaked to the skin. They both know the command, "Shake" but of course it's the drier one who is quicker to oblige.... I keep a towel by the door for the Wet One.

By tradition the shepherd has a border colley, preferably scottish border colley, and the chief dogs place is just outside the door, rain or shine, ready for the next days work.
