A Surprise for Sky

13 Nov

I shared a while back that along with the new windows, I was planning on doing some work with the doors.  Sky has an insulated dog house, but he’s rather claustrophobic and will not use it.  I decided to do something to help him have a nice warm place to be when I’m at work.


I had the old outside door moved to the other side of the back porch, so I can still close it and secure the rest of the house.  Some day, I’ll get rid of the 1970s paneling and add insulation and redo the floors, but for now, I’m calling it good enough to get through the winter.

It makes a nice space for him.

And he has figured out how to go in and out.

He’s actually pretty smart about it. Luckily, he got it figured out because we woke up Monday morning to a frigid winter wonderland.

Now I need to figure out how to keep him from stealing my gloves off the counter in there because I’m pretty sure I’m not going to find the one that’s out there somewhere.

    Sky can be a rascal, can’t he! Your idea is a good one. It’s pretty cool that he can let himself in and out!

    How old is he now?

      He will be three next month. Hard to believe because he still acts like a puppy.

    Our son has one of the storm doors with the doggie door. Unfortunately no ante room so DJ comes into the kitchen area muddy paws and all.

      I’d be afraid to have squirrels and skunks in the house if I didn’t have a way to keep the rest of the house closed up. LOL

    Hello, Yay for Sky. A warm house he can go in and out, that is nice. Wishing you a happy day!

    When you figure out how to teach him not to steal your gloves off the counter, would you let me know? I have a wonderful canine friend that has little understanding of boundaries!
