When our roommates moved out a week ago (leaving the house to Rob, (my OH) and I!!!) it was only a matter of time before their bedroom was turned into a doggie nursery/playroom....

We put blankets on the floor making cleaning easy... along with lots of doggie beds. Have plenty of crates in case a dog wants her space. Got an old baby carriage doubling as a toy box. Even a little desk to use as my "grooming center" with a grass potty patch discretely underneath it. Shelves to store my obsessive collection of dog purses... and the walls covered in various ads/posters from the tons of dog magazines my mom subscribed me to, lol. We moved Tequila's pedigree and registration paperwork in there too so it can be on display.

Photo quality not so good, it's off my cell since my battery charger went kaput rendering both digital cameras temporarily useless lol.

(There's a cute vintage nursery scale on the grooming/desk which is how I weigh them lol.)






I'll get better pix WITH the dogs once I can use my camera; with my cell they move too fast and it makes everything blurry, hehe.
This room is basically our alternative to a crate... they have free run of the house anyway but it'll be nice to have a safe place for them to stay if we'll be out for an hour or two.

That is wonderful. I have a dedicated chi room, but it is not so homey--more like a place for Mom to clean easily.

Thanks guys!! I really HATE the carpeting... but we rent; so I can't do much about it. I fell in love with this house because everything EXCEPT for the 2 bedrooms is hardwood floor...

Until we can find a better solution, laying blankets over the carpet will have to suffice. At least it makes the room more comfy looking...

We just built a new house and we made a setup in the basement for big and little dogs for overnight and when we are not here....they have all their stuff down there and we even had a sink put in JUST for the dogs...to bathe them and to fill their water bowls. It's so nice!! I love having a place just for the dogs. So much nicer espec when we have company and the dogs need to get away!
