Jawbs and I spent the majority of last weekend doing a DIY woodworking project, and it was actually a blast!

Since our house sits up a few feet from the actual ground, any dog doors to the outside were over 20 inches off the floor. We are doing a double-dog-door setup where they go out our laundry room into the garage, then out another doggie door to the backyard to a specially fenced-in dog run area.

We had to build a ramp outside of the laundry room doggie door to get the pups to floor level safely! Here's the final result, which I LOVE!







Accidental action shot!




It's 2 separate pieces so the ramp can be taken off and the whole thing moved easily. So far Tank has it absolutely MASTERED but Sugar is having some trouble figuring out that "go outside" now means going out the doggie doors to get to the dog run instead of out our living room/back door to the yard. :) We'll get there. Luckily I have a lot of yummy treats. I give her 4 days before she grasps the concept!

So this is why I was pretty AFK the whole weekend and went on a bit of an Internet silence. On Sunday we had to finish the project and had to record/watch the Miami Dolphins game on a 6 hour delay. When we watch a game on delay we completely avoid any phone/Internet contact so there are no spoilers. :)

It was nice to escape the web for a day anyway. We all need to unplug sometimes, hmm?

Tank don't need to wipe them paws He is too Cool for that He just jumps up the ramp. Tanks seems to be the coolest pup ever. :)
He's quite the rebel anarchist when it comes to that sort of thing.

I haz technical question about the shelf underneath. Is that just for extra structural support or do you plan on using that for storage. Just curious what it was added for.

Going to put a small dog bed there in case anyone wants to hang out there. :) (It was originally for structural support, but we made it a platform instead of a 2x4 for the bed scenario.)
