Default Crate Expectations

Sorry, I really amused myself with that title!

Anyways, I walked into work the other day with a large bag of cushions and throws and two of my team asked 'are those for the dogs?' They know me so well! I have comfyfied/prettified their crates because I'm jealous of how comfy Zorana has made Leo's crate! I'll blame it either on my nesting instinct or guilt of having Mylo neutered. I thought he could do with somewhere comfy to rest since he's gotten into the habit of laying on the end where there is bare plastic. He looks so comfy now in the middle of the night; all stretched out or laying on his back with his paws in the air!

Their crates look so cute Melissa!! It's definitely the neutering guilt, I went out and splurged on an expensive bed the next day after Leo's neuter that I normally would not ever have!!
Mylo's looks so manly just adorable and of course Willow's is just fabulous in pink!! Love!

I just ordered a new crate online last night for all the dogs!! And eventually Mimi will join them too! I'll have to make that one just as comfy!

Haha. Thanks!

So you went with a crate rather than a playpen then? I'm sure you'll make it gorgeous, you have a great sense of style. If you ever quit your job you could become an interior designer! All the throws and the pink pillow were from the human section and ended up pretty cheap really. I got the pink heart throw and cushion, a big throw for Mylo and the beige ish bed all for about 20 ($32ish)

What a steal! That's a great deal!
I've noticed a can get a human throw for $18 where as the last doggie throw I bought was $50!! Crazy!!!

I ended up with an expandable pen that comes with a floor tray but no top. It expands from 35-60", is about 29" tall and 30.5" wide. I think this will work best since the size is adjustable. And there is a little doggie door, also the opposite end opens up for easy access to replacing potty pads.
This is what it looks like, I think it will match our floors.
What do you think?

I like! It's very stylish for a playpen, plus it will save your floors from accidents or scratching and such. Will you leave the pups in there when you're out? It must be nice for them to all have each other to hang out with. Yea...all the doggy blankets are either expensive or small and cheap quality plus I haven't found any pretty girly blankets. I wanted something a bit furry and fluffy for Mylo because he gravitates towards those at my sister's house. The pink one was 5.99 and Mylo's was 9.99 but it's so soft! I should get one for myself really. The pillow was 2.99 and the dog bed was 4.99...they're from a cheap shop by my work. Everything there is a bargain, I love it! I was nosing around there on my break on Friday and there's so much home decor items there that I want to buy! I can't wait to do this place up!
