With multiple dogs, one thing people wonder is, "are they all in the house?". Yes, they are. I am a firm believer in dogs being a part of the family. If I wanted a yard ornament, I'd get a garden gnome or a plastic pink flamingo.
When the dogs are in the house they tend to lay on the sofa. Sounds cute and cozy until you see this:
See what is missing here? There is no spot for the human to sit! With some very careful rearranging, a spot becomes available. A very small space.
Sometimes it's only one or two who takes over the sofa. Here is Breeze enjoying the space. With Bill on the end of the sofa.
We have a couple of gates in the house to prevent dogs from getting in to certain areas. Those with cats will understand. I just have to share with you a brilliant idea I saw on the internet. Rather than a traditional baby gate, re-purpose a baby crib! I was able to get one for free. A set of hinges and a hook and eye closure...a much nicer looking gate. Just enough space at the bottom for the cats to get through.
