Two Materials


In 1988 I used very few materials to construct…
a kennel for Brandy who features at the bottom

of my Black and White Tuesday page.

Twelve months ago, with two new pups on the way

it was decreed a new kennel, or two, was required.


Off to the hardware store to purchase

some treated pine planks or palings.

The frame is made from salvaged pine 4 by 2s

which were being thrown away during

the construction of our house.

At the time I told MGW  ‘…they will be handy, one day…’

Really it’s a wonder her eyes did not roll

out of her head on the spot.

However, guess who had last laugh…and

it only took eleven years for that wood to ‘come in handy.’

The floor is also dressed pine.

So we have….treated pine, building pine,

some nails and did you notice

that fine piece of ridging in photo number 3?

Also end views in numbers 2 and 5.

Another of my salvages from 2005!

Enough said, me thinks.  🙂

Even dear old Maggie gave my handiwork the paws up!

    • Thank you and you’re welcome. My pleasure. Maggie did enjoy her new pad for a few months, however, her hips gave out and we had to be cruel to be kind last August. About 6 weeks later during our trip the travel director showed us the Marley and Me movie. Was too soon…although I don’t think it would ever be the right time that movie.
