In preparing for the winter (which can be cold for those human types), our hu-dad was careful to make sure everything was ready for the brutal winds and temperatures we can have.  One of the things he did was replace our dog door with a brand new flap to make sure it sealed well.  We decided it did not quite look right and did a remodeling.

We were just looking for some ventilation.

Yes, yes, he is aware that we have redecorated the wood frame of the door, but he was a little surprised that we have “adjusted” the flap itself.  Apparently this is supposed to cause some sort of problem with this morning’s predicted temperature of 19F (-7C).  Compared to the rest of the mornings this week, that is supposed to be warm, so we do not understand his grumbling.

    Great job there! Since this is the herd’s door, you have every right to do what you want with it (^o^)/.

    I think my dad might go ballistic if I did that to my cat door.

    Hi Y’all!
    Nice redecorating!
    Too cold and windy here for the Humans today! I love it!
    No dog door for me. I make my Human Momma go outside with me. It’s good for her to get lots of fresh air.
    Thanks for stoppin’
    Y’all come back now,

    Mom says something about a Will Smith earworm –

    Maybe we need to make our own Siberian version!

    Rhut Rho Scooby!! I hope Hu-dad appreciates your decorating sense.

  15. Pamela on November 27, 2010 at 11:01 am

    Looks like congratulations are due all around–to the huparents for getting the site moved to a new server (always a tricky job) and to the sibes for redecorating.

    Well done, everyone!

  16. Emma Rose on November 27, 2010 at 10:41 am

    Sibes just love that cool air don’t they?
    Besides that, it looks like art to me 🙂

    If I ever need a door busted down, I know who to call!

  18. Houndstooth on November 27, 2010 at 9:24 am

    Does the Hu-Dad not understand that dogs need jobs? Obviously, since you didn’t have some, you took it upon yourselves to start a redecorating business. I don’t see the problem!

  19. KB on November 27, 2010 at 9:20 am

    I’m amazed that the hu-dad doesn’t understand your need to contribute to the remodeling!

    So, it’s windy there too. I think that’s the hardest part of winter here, and maybe there too?

  20. Oorvi on November 27, 2010 at 8:57 am

    Love the decoration…but seriously – it’s -7 degrees?!Brrr…

  21. Shawnee the Shepherd on November 27, 2010 at 8:09 am

    And the hu-dad is surprised why? Sometimes us dogs just has to take matters into our own paws. Or moufs. I say throw lots of your furs around to keep the hu-dad warm and all be OK.

  22. Minnie and Mack on November 27, 2010 at 7:45 am

    Good job on the remodeling effort. Stay warm and cozy. Maybe you guys need a winter hat like Macks!

    Drools and licks,
