Winter, with its bitter wind, rain and snow, is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to check our doghouses, patching and repairing all cracks and leaks. It is also the time for clean bedding, with straw being the best. This bedding will probably need to be replaced several times during the winter. Putting a board along the bottom of the door opening will keep the bedding in the doghouse. Turning the door away from the wind also helps protect our animals from the cold.
Cats also need a house, something they can get into, not just a box in the garage or shed.
