Dog House...wrapping up old bidniss...

Hey y'all! Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...

I had told y'all that #3 son got himself a one year-old Golden Retriever from the pound for Christmas.

Jake, the Wonder Dog! (that's him on the lower right)

Jake is a funny dog. Two days ago, a whole bunch of young adults were here and decided to play on Paul's new trampoline. Jake was over in our back yard. That hound jumped up on the perimeter of the trampoline, and circled the whole deal until he found the door in the netting, and made his way into all the fun. Man, did those kids have a time!

I had also told y'all that Phil was working on a really cool house for Jake. Well, he got it finished yesterday. Now, Phil has never built a dog house before (but it's quite likely that he will spend a night or two in one in the future...if you know what I mean...). So, I think he did a danged good job.

Cool dog house, with a porch & everything...

Now, Phil and I have both built stuff before, but we have never roofed. My wetback neighbor across the street (who is a great neighbor, and a fabulous roofer) gave us the shingles, and tar paper to finish off the top. I think we did pretty danged good, even if I do say so myself!

Yesterday morning, Phil, me, and my Daddy moved Jake's new quarters to Phil's back yard. I do not know exactly how much the dog house weighs. But, I can tell you this for sure...

The roof might leak, but it will take an F-4 tornado (or better) to move the sucker one inch...


  1. That is possibly the coolest dog house ever!

    I'm thinking Jake knows he is a lucky doggie.

  2. That IS a cool dog house! And Jake is a fine looking dog.

  3. It is pretty cool. I mean, it's not as nice as Jim & Tammy Faye Baker's air conditioned one...but then again, he ain't a preacher.


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
