Who's In The Doghouse?

Years ago, my husband's parents bought us a doghouse-
we did have a dog-
Phoebee was a Brittany Spaniel-
a wonderful dog, who gave us the best 14 years of her life-

After she was gone, the doghouse got pushed aside and forgotten-

Until this summer,
having 1 year old puppies revitalized our back yard-

I thought it was time to bring the doghouse back to life-

Stain or paint was the question-
and I bet you know the answer!!
My bff-  spray paint!

We chose a beautiful shade of aqua-
My daughter, Cait, the one who goes to tag sales with me, took the can in her hand
and did the deed- doesn't it look like the cheeriest pup palace you ever did see!!?!

Plus, we added a welcome sign to it too! 
Ever house needs a welcome mat and this sign
lets you know who the homeowners are!!

The pups don't know what to make of it-
They circle and sniff it but have not entered the threshold- haha!

Oh well, at least it looks adorable!

Take care, gotta fly- Claire

  1. It looks great that color and I love the sign! ;) I am a new follower!

  2. Hi - I'm a new follower from the WW hop. I want a dog so bad - but hubby says no. I guess my 3 cats and 6 fish will have to do.

  3. Love the color, and the signs are adorable!

  4. How absolutely DARLING!! Would LOVE it if you would link this up at my brand new turquoise linky party!! ;)

  5. What timing - a turquoise party!
    I bet in no time at all they will be making use of their private retreat. Fun color and great sign.

    We have several forgotten and neglected houses around the yard. Used mainly by stray cats and wild critters. Maybe if I spruce them up they'll get friendlier occupants?

  6. SO cute! Are your dogs cockers? I've got 5 dogs, w are cockers :)
