We FINALLY got Seamus a crate! And at an AWESOME price, too!
A new pet shop opened up RIGHT BY my house Monday and Sami and I went there and just about everything was on sale! We bought Seamus a large metal wire crate (the kind most people use for show dogs going to shows) for 91€ ($117) that was regularly priced at 150€ ($193).
I couldn't be happier, guys! It is SO NICE
to come home now and not have anything torn up!
The crate is the perfect size for him, too. He can stand up and sit and still have a little head room and he can fully turn around and stretch all the way out. It's wonderful. I couldn't be happier with it! And
, the little bugger can't chew his way out of it.
At first Seamus was terrified of it and pitched a hissy fit when we wanted him to go in. But, now that I started giving him his food in his crate and I put his favourite blanket and toys in there, he's more willing to go in. He still doesn't like it, mind you, but he will go in without a fuss.
I'm just so happy! Even though everything in my life right now seems to be one big ball of stress, it's nice to have THIS stress-factor taken care of! I no longer have to worry about Seamus chewing a live wire and killing himself or swallowing something that gets caught in his throat ... And, my house is no longer being torn up. I feel so relieved! Leaving him home to go places now is actually a JOY!
