Yesterday I came back recharged from a mini vacation and gave this dog house a much-needed makeover! We have three dogs, all with very different personalities, Abby I have to say is one incredible dog and we are lucky to have her! Ray surprised me one day shortly after our Jack Russell passed away years ago. I’ll admit, I was NOT happy with him, I wasn’t ready for another dog and this dog looked to be about a 100 years old male dog. Oh boy, was I WRONG!
Side Note: Our dogs are super spoiled, part of our family, with the freedom to be indoors or outdoors and sleep with us at night. Didn’t want anyone to think I leave them out in the hot/cold 24 hours a day 🙂
Come to find out she was about 1 year old, she was found on the streets of Tijuana and her name was Vivian. She was one of the most loving, loyal dogs I have ever met and Vivian is my mom’s name, it was meant to be. (I did make Ray sweat it out for about a week though) We changed her name to Abby and she instantly became part of our family.
Here is what the Dog House looked like when we got it, great structure, just needs a little TLC!
Sand the whole piece using medium grit sandpaper and an electric sander
Prime the dog house using an angle trim paint brush to get those hard-to-reach places
