Mobile Dog Home

Here's a simple way to create a dog kennel for little pups on the move. When Minnie goes out she's often accompanied by one of her (toy) canine friends. She recently found an empty smoothie box & started putting the toy puppies in it, calling it their house. She was eager to paint it, so she chose the paints & brushes/sponges she wanted & set to work!



Once dry we (under Minnie's instruction) added a few decorations using a black pen. Minnie stuck a bone shaped sign to the front of the box, & some sticky pads to the top of the box to hold the card down. We attached a strip of foam with two split pins to make the handle, & then our dog house was ready for it's first visitor!



It's been popular as you can see... it's what every stylish dog wants to be seen in!  ;-)



 Minnie's mobile dog home has been out & about on many occasions, & she proudly swings it along as she walks. Who'd a thought a recycled box could create so much joy!
