Sonora’s New Dog House

Hello All! Welcome back to Paige’s Posts!

Boy, has time flown by. Summer is nearing a close (did you know the last day of summer is Wednesday, September 21st?)  & to prepare for the coming winter, I ordered a dog house for Sonora on Amazon. I ordered it on September 4th & it arrived on September 7th.

The box was large and too heavy for me to drag into the house, so I assembled it in the front yard. It took me about an hour to put together and I only needed an extra hand when it came to screwing in two little pieces that go on the bottom of the house to hold up the floor.

The house came with all the pieces and all I needed was a pair of scissors to open the box and a screwdriver to put it together.

Overall, I am very impressed with this dog house. The wood is thin, but will definitely work for Sonora and the color is amazing! The box said it was olive green, but it looks more like a teal color, which is what I was hoping for. It was much bigger than I had expected. So big, in fact, that I think both Sonora & her friend, Soda-Pop, can both fit comfortably. Also, the roof can be lifted open for easy cleaning. I’ll be on the look out for an appropriately sized dog bed to go in the dog house.

At first, Sonora didn’t want anything to do with her new house, so I gave her treats every time she would approach it until she would finally go inside. Now she uses it to hide in when I spray herself and Soda-Pop with water to keep them cool. This morning, I noticed that she was sleeping in it-baby steps!
