a view from the inside

Generally, the barn blog features pictures of the rescue dogs romping or doing activities out in the yard.  But the kennels inside the barn can give you  a glimpse of each dog's personality.  Let's take a look.

Little Chiquita is well known for her love of stuffies and tennis balls.  Here she is presiding proudly over her nest of favored indoor toys, complete with an overstuffed teddy bear that's almost as large as she is.  She keeps her little "family" together where she can watch over them.

And the delicious Ms Maude is shown here with her beloved armchair, ahhh!  This girl with her wonky hip is all about comfort.  Who needs toys when you have something soft and squishy to snuggle up on?  All that's needed is an attentive human cuddling in the chair with her to bring her to a state of nirvana.

Check out Preston's frat pad.  He's all boy, toys scattered around, a beat-up armchair (he loves chewing on it) with his mess spilling out of the kennel.  A little messy suits him just fine - let's just call it "lived-in".  He just loves a good party.

 His dainty neighbor Gwennie, on the other hand, is more of a minimalist.   Her toys & blankets are neatly contained in her bed where she serenely watches the antics of her fellow barn residents.  Like a little black dress, this little black dog isn't showy or extroverted, but when you get to know her you'll see that she's a classy and intelligent girl.

These pictures were taken before the arrival of the new guy, Badda Bing, so we've yet to see what his kennel reveals about him.

  1. Rub-a-dub-dub, sweet Gwennie in a tub! I love this look at how they make their spaces their own: Mama Chiquita, squishy Maude in her squishy chair, messy Preston, and LBD Gwennie. Of course she's a classy and intelligent girl!
