Homemade dog treats?
A Puppy Palace to protect them from marauding mountain lions?
Big Red (Not His Real Nickname) built a sturdy and pretty Puppy Palace, enclosed on all sides (including the top) with hog wire. Big Red likes all his structures to be pretty, notwithstanding my usual directive at the beginning of every project, “Make it CHEAP!”
Since it didn’t turn out to be quite as cheap as I hoped, my plan is to make the Puppy Palace pay for itself, by borrowing an idea from Jacques Cousteau and his shark cages:
One night alone in the Lion Cage! Just you, a bedroll, and a bloody pile of raw meat scraps! $599 includes a t-shirt proclaiming “I survived the Lion Cage!” (for survivors only)
I am thinking it would be a good idea to have paying guests stay in the Puppy Palace before consigning our dogs to it, just in case it isn’t as secure as we hope it is.
