When we moved, we gave up the downstairs office, which was the dog room. We have had to create a space for the dogs. Since the new yard does not have grass yet, and there has been some rain, we have had MUD! I locked the dogs outside yesterday, placed their dog beds, gave a pan of water in hopes to have some time to clean the mud and dirt from the guest bathroom (where the doggie door is). Rosie decided the water was something for her to play with! So we have been creative with where we have the dogs hang out. When we are home, they have free reign with the exception of our bedroom and the office. As soon as it gets cool enough, they will be spending most of their time OUTSIDE!
