Well, after having our home destroyed one too many times (see previous blog), we came up with a solution. Jared and our friend Joey spent all day Saturday building Dexter and Delilah a fully insulated "Club House".  As you can see in the picture to the right, we converted our shed into a club house slash storage shed.  We were hoping to maximize our space.  Joey only charged us $1.5 million which we thought was a pretty good deal considering what we had been through (again, see previous blog).  He even gave us a 10% discount.  Thanks Joey for all your help. We couldn't have done it without you.

Getting Dexter and Delilah to actually use their new home is a completely different story.  You can see Jared trying to lure them up the ramp with a delicious doggy treat.  They did not want any part of that ramp.  

Typically you would think that because they are so large, they fear nothing.  Well I am here to prove that theory wrong.  They are scared of pretty much everything.  After many hours of trying not for force them, Jared finally just picked them up and pushed them in.  Go Jared and your buff muscles!!!       

I am hoping they will gain the courage to venture into their new home on their own.  We will continue to try until we succeed and one day, yes, one day, they can sleep outside instead of on my kitchen floor.  Until then wish us luck, we are going to need it.
