Well, to all LJers and especially to all my special friends here at LJ’s. and all who have been praying for me in the past. Guess What? The prayers worked. Other than remodeling the shop, this is really the first project that I have built in the shop in over 2 years. I built this for Sadie, our 7 year old Britney and Walker, our 3 year old Chocolate Labradoodle. There isn’t a separator between the two doors, because these two dogs are inseparable, they play and sleep together on a love seat in our basement that belongs to them. Plus they will be able to keep each other warm, this coming winter. After all these years in the house, they are getting an eviction notice. I will miss the constant love and companionship. However, My wife and I are fed up with dog hair and the scratches on the hardwood floors.
They move this week. I will leave them in their pen during the day all this week and then start leaving them at night toward the weekend. You would never know how much that these dogs are loved. Would You??
God bless!
