Clint has talked about making Maggie a dog house for a while, but with the warm summer weather she hasn't needed it and she has one that we bought her. We've tried putting blankets out for her in her current dog house, but the blankets always end up all over the yard with holes chewed in them. I bought her an electric bed when we first moved into the house. To show her appreciation, Maggie pulled it out of the dog house and chewed it all to pieces. We have had two dog beds in the house so a couple of months ago I took one and put it under the picnic table. She has been really good and not torn it completely to pieces. This weekend we were sitting around and I suddenly just said to Clint, "Lets build Maggie a dog house"...so we did. Okay, let rephrase that, Clint built her a dog house, I handed him the occasional nail and measured some of the boards. It's not quite done, Clint is going to shingle the roof, put on some siding, and put on some sort of door to help keep out the cold air. Maggie likes her new house.
