We’ve tried numerous times to make Sammie’s kennel more comfortable for her – unfortunately, she likes to chew on anything we’ve put in there. I’m not sure why, but Aaron decided yesterday he would put the foam pad we had left for her on the floor in our bedroom in her kennel.

She won’t leave it now!

This was her when I went home for lunch yesterday. She came out momentarily to greet me, but then went back into her kennel and stayed there until I had to leave. She did come out to play last night but would still go back to her kennel for a break every now and then.

AND THEN, during the night, she decided to lay in her kennel instead of sleep in bed with us! I’m not sure how long she slept out there (she was on Aaron’s side), but Aaron was able to convince her to lay with us again when she came to check in on us.

    Haha she looks quite content with her new digs!

      I think we’ve created a monster! I have a feeling she’ll expect luxury from here on out…

    When Ray came home with us, his crate (we call it his den) was fitted with a few layers on the floor topped with a “fitted” bed. We already decided that if Ray went in there, we would not touch him. In effect he would have a comfortable place to escape to as/when he felt the need. He does not sleep in there on a regular basis (because he has other beds to chose from) however, he often just wanders in there and settles down. We think he is just expressing a desire to be left alone for a while. Perhaps it is a Shepherd “thing” where they feel a need to have a place of their own instead of sharing of sharing with people all the time?

      I’ve written several times about how much Sammie loves her kennel (a lot), but I think she’s glad to have something squishy and comfy in there! And we’re glad she hasn’t torn it up yet!
