>Having a new home is always exciting, and with our move to a new home, we also had to consider whether we would keep Lucy as an indoor dog, or have her be an outdoor dog.
Hubby felt pretty strongly about having Lucy stay outside once we relocated. Lucy is a hairy dog. Not just a little, but absolutely hairy. The groomer charges us as if she is a husky, that’s how hairy she is. Her hair made it so that if you didn’t vacuum every day the house was covered in it.
I have never had an outside dog before. I felt like I was being a bad mom to my fur baby by subjecting her to the rain and yuck of the pacific northwest. I mean, lets face it, it’s only sunny like three days a year here! Wouldn’t poor Lucy be cold and wet and lonely?
In the end, Hubby made some good arguments for having Lucy stay outside. My condition was that I be able to get her a fantastic house too. I mean, us humans got an upgrade, why not get the best for my pooch?
I intended to take pictures as I was putting this together, but once again, totally forgot. Hubby wasn’t home to put it together, and I got caught up in the excitement of giving Lucy a sweet new pad.
