It's raining cats and dogs over here, and there isn't much to do , so I thought I'd post a picture of my dogs and their palace. Anybody ever build something like this for a customer's dogs? It has Bend Industries Ultratex Granites pavers, a little raised area for the bathroom (the whole area is covered in mulch - long story - trying to train one dog). We just finished a shade structure for my boys to shade them in the hot summer sun. We'll put some sort of ivy on the lattice. They have a small versa-lok structure to climb on in there, and a dog door to an enclosed area in the garage. Columnar Buckthorn 2' O.C. all around the fencing, to provide cover for them and neighbors in the warm months.
