The New Kennel!

Hi Everypup, kitty & hammie!
I have been telling you that something special has been in the works here since March. I am happy to announce that on June 20, my team mates got moved into the brand new kennel area!
It is only about 20 feet from the house, so mom is able to keep a closer eye on everyone and keep everyone safer than before. It will also be much easier for her in the winter and SOO much easier to load us when we are going running!
Allow me to give you a tour. We are looking east and this is the entrance. This is looking south and is the view from the street side of our property. That is Uncle Tom checking things out before he & mom started moving dogs, barrels, posts and cement blocks. The new area definitely got his stamp of approval!

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! Everyone is moved in & getting comfortable. The only change mom had to make was to switch the 2 dogs right in the front of the picture....that's Velvet on the left and Lakota on the right. Dave was not totally comfortable with Lakota, so mom swapped those 2 around. Dave was much happier because he was used to having Velvet next to him in the old kennel area. The dog moving in the picture is Jasmine (Dave's girlfriend haa roo!)
Here are Angel and Blaze. They are just to the right of the dogs in the picture above. Blaze now has a special piece of mesh called "shade" over his area. It blocks 80% of the sun so now he has as comfortable a space as everypup else. Oh, this was taken at breakfast time!
Here are Velvet in the front and Dave, my daddy dog in the back.
Lakota and Jasmine just finished their breakfast.
Here is my daddy dog Dave relaxing in the new kennel area. Do you see the windchimes right near him? Mom got them out of the old area a few days after the main move. They sound so beautiful and all of us enjoy them.

I will get some more pictures as soon as mom finishes putting in the plants along the kennel fence. She has put a cedar planter on each side of the kennel gate and is planting lavender and some other flowering plants.
Mom took me for a nice walk in the yard today. It felt real good to get some fresh air & exercise! I checked out the old kennel area and got to see all my team mates in the nice NEW area!
I hope you enjoyed the tour of new kennel area. I am going to head off to bed now.
Sweet dreams!
Skye

Hey, we have missed all of you. We don't do Facebook but we heard from Pippa's post that Blaze was not doing so well. Paws crossed that he will soon be fine.
