We have the Dog House

We have six dogs (please don’t tell animal control – the rescues don’t count, anyway)… and we have a small house, which we bought without really having Home Plans. It’s only 1300 square feet. I really do like our house, though. I wish all the rooms were bigger, so the dogs fit better, and I could do more training indoors… and we need a new kitchen, but other than those things I do like our house. Oh… and it’s brick. I like brick houses, they look nice, but the insulation is rotten and if we have an earthquake, the house will crumble with us inside.

I dream of being able to design my own house one day. Just for dogs.. well, okay for two humans and all our dogs. πŸ™‚ First I’d get a huge sectional couch… because as I sit here there is me on this couch, Tatum at my right (who I keep nudging with my elbow and making her moan), Muffit on my left with his chin on my leg, and Levi on my far left… yes we all fit. LOL.

So next time we buy a house.. and I hope we do get another, I want to start out with some good House Plans so we can have a grooming room, including a bathing room… a practice room that has nothing in it but a good matted floor and mirrors… and a nice backyard so I can practice agility, obedience, and flyball.

I love those Log Homes, and would love if I could find some Log home plans for a new house! And, preferably, have it on about 3 acres of land.. in the woods, with no neighbors so the dogs won’t bug them if they bark.

Okay maybe I’m not completely happy with our house… lol.

  1. I hope you get your new house! I am designing a remodel for ours at the moment – my life got too cluttered and I’m about to shed some excess. Best wishes with the dogs; we dog-sit for a friend from time to time (a smooth-haired border collie) – and we just love her sharp personality and her beautiful, friendly nature. I put pics of her here – – because she was just adorable as she helped my husband to dig the garden!

  4. Six dogs in 1300 sq. foot!
    You do have very large heart and I sure do wish your dreams a big log house come true sooner.

  6. LOL Dog Trainer, great pictures! I love it when dogs help dig. Ours sometimes do that in our garden, too. πŸ™‚ We also need to shed some excess junk, we seem to just have too much.

  8. Hi Shelley, very cool about your log cabin! 1300 square feet isn’t too small, except for with our dogs it seems too small.

  10. i saw a very cool log cabin doghouse somewhere online once, will definitely comment back here if i find it again. also saw a very cool log cabin birdhouse on one of the log websites – http://www.loghome.com/images/Articles/10-log-cabin-bird-house.jpg

    as you can see, i’m very much a dog junkie and log home junkie (could be a worse kind of junkie, right?!)

    anyway, good luck to you in getting that “second dream home.” i think we could all do better to appreciate what we do have in the meantime though…i mean, some people don’t even have a couch to share with their dogs!

    p.s. if this comment appears twice, sorry! there was some sort of error when i first tried.
