Puppy's Toy Crate

Submitted by takahler on Wed, 08/31/2011 - 11:39

My brother announced a few weeks ago that he was going to be on the search for a new Golden Retriever puppy. Well the hunt is over and he gets to bring the puppy home today. I decided to make the puppy a "Welcome to the family" toy box. I wanted to paint it but was out voted by my kids. They liked the natural pine look, but I felt it needed a little something more. Therefore, a couple of days ago I purchased letters at Hobby Lobby, painted them and nailed them to the front of the crate from the inside out.

My sons and I also got the puppy some new toys to put in the box. We get to deliver it to her tonight. Can't wait to meet her! I posted a picture of the puppy at the bottom of this post. Isn't she cute?

Our dogs toys are always all over the place and this is a great idea to have the toy box on casters! This will be going on my to-do list. Thanks for the post!
