    Keeper of the hens

    We had forgotten to put the run away when we let the dogs into the living room, and Zoey made a beeline for it. She spent the next few hours snoozing, in the run, on her bed! I guess maybe it felt like a den?



    So we bought the pups a tent!

    Zoey did pretty well with it...she did get over-excited when she saw the flowers Lyle brought back (weirdo that she is...) and tried to nibble the tent a few times, but when we redirected her and distracted her every time she soon stopped.

    "I am royalty, daddy! Feed me grapes...er, actually scratch that...grapes are poisonous to dogs. Feed me salmon treats instead!" :smile:

    She looks SOOO cute in there!!

    And this is the first time she took herself in with a Nylabone, and really calmly settled in there to chew it :smile:

    Kasper has been snoozing in his crate after a walk and so hasn't seen the tent. We just let him out and he hasn't looked at it once...huh?! This is the dog that used to freak out over new things, and he doesn't care one bit :rolling:

    And no, Kasper will not be getting a more 'boyish' tent of his own. They can share. I don't believe in the whole girls = pink things and boys = blue...I was a massive tomboy as a kid; let people be who they are. I have no problem with Kasper using a pink tent :smile:

    I don't think Kasp will be seen dead in it! :rolling: I've never seen such a thing for a dog - although there's a silly new shop in Marlow catering for handbag/spoilt dogs, with outfits and such...so he might take to it!

    I was always a tomboy too - much prefer blue!!
    Zoey looks lovely in there bless her. Will they share? The cats do but not at the same time!!

    CC it's actually a kid's play tent, but if kids can enjoy it why can't dogs?! Kasper was AMAZING with the tent, he came into the living room and paid it literally no attention. I thought he hadn't even seen it at first. Then ten minutes later he wandered in, curled up and fell asleep in there...think he approves :rolling:

    Zoey would love to snuggle in there with her brother...in fact she'd love to snuggle with him anywhere! But Kasp is a grump and doesn't allow it. On rare occasions they will sleep faintly close to each other on the couch, but tucking together and touching is very rare :smile:

    This photo shows the size of it better because Zoey took herself right to the back with a Nylabone...she thought we were going to put her harness on, bless her, so the tent is already seen as a safe place!

    Such a shame they don't sleep together - it'd be lovely in the winter for them!

    It's not for want of trying CC! If Kasper is feeling less grumpy sometimes she can get a little close, but most times he doesn't approve and will give her a grumble or immediately get up and go sleep somewhere else :tooth:

    Haha thanks Kate, I can't get over how readily they took to it :smile:
