Moving House

Hello Everybuddy, we hope you are all having a good weekend.  

The other day Rory and I heard Mum and Dad talking about moving house.  Blimey, we thought.  Moving house.  The only thing we had heard about moving house was when Mum was talking once.  She said next time they moved it would be when the kids booked them into the 'old folks home' down the road.  

Well, me and Rory thought we would have to become Therapy dogs.  I said to Rory, don't worry about your slobber cause old people usually dribble too so that will be No Worries.  At the old folks home, they would probably give us lots of treats and we might get to sleep on someone's bed.  Oh well we thought, as long as we are with Mum and Dad. 

We were all prepared for the big move.  Then what should turn up but this.  WTH?  A new dog house for us?  Yippee.  We get to stay here.  

Hmmm, looks interesting.

Here is Dad and James moving it around the back.

We had to help supervise.

Mango Master, if you are reading this, my Dad and brother actually put the roof on ALL BY THEMSELVES!  
We were very impressed with their skill. 

I was so excited I had to have a good ole shake.

Shall we go in Rory?

Can you come in James?

We love it.

Don't worry about the brick under the dog house.
It is a temporary measure cause the paving is very uneven.

Tyler came for a visit next day, and he fit in too.

One last photo to show you how my little brother is growing.
Notice my Mum's great invention.  
A $2.00 garden pot with a $2.00 salad bowl inside.  
She knows how to get a cheap raised food bowl.

Have a wonderful weekend everybuddy.  
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory


  1. Hey Stella and Rory, that has to be the biggest doggie pad house that I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But you all look very comfy in it - is it gonna have a door to keep the brrrr breezes out??? Better get your peeps onto that.

    He is growin' alright!!! Better balance that brick on his head to slow down all that growth!! BOL!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie

  2. That house looks fantastic. I wish Master would make one for me. Hey! Can you send those roofing dudes over to my estate because we are taking on water and Master is too old to go up on our roof to fixit.


  3. Ha ha - love the raised bowl idea - always wise to be economical - all the more green papers for treats for you and Rory.

    We would love a new house like that for our patio. Our silly homes association has rules that any dog houses have to match the main dwelling in color and roofing material - how dumb is that!

    Have a great weekend and have fun playing house:)

  4. That is a wonderful dog house!! We are extremely jealous! And we are most impressed at your mum's economical raised bowl invention. Our mom keeps looking for those raised bowl things and the ones she likes are like a zillion dollars, so we eat our food on a step. Sheesh! Have a good weekend!

  5. That is a dog castle even big enuff for Rory! Very Posh :)

  6. Hi Stella and Rory, oh how cool. Your own house and room enough for guests too. Maybe you could call Maggie and Mitch's dad and get him to come down to Australia and tack on an extension so that your mom and dad wouldn't have to go down the road to the "old folks home" :)

  7. That's a pretty fancy house! Wow! Have fun playing and napping in it!

    Your pal, Pip

  8. Hey everybuddy... I think your mom is Brilliant!! That Raised foods and waters bowl is just FANGtastical!!! AND you new HOUSE is just to FAINT over.. you gonna have room fur a pool table and a Big Screen TV?? I bet you will. We could have some grrrrreat pawties in that place fur sure!!!!

  9. Sam told us that we had to come and see your new house! It's awesome, guys! You need to have a housewarming pawty! We'll bring the pizza!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  10. We wonder how long both of you will fit in it together. Bwu ha ha. That Rory is growing like a weed! Great new house, though.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    Maggie and Mitch have a great idea.

  11. Nice to meet you!! I'm glad you came to visit. I loved seeing the pictures of your new house - WOW!! Fancy!! And the raised dog dish is ingenious!!!

    Your newest furiend,

  12. OMG I love your new doggie house!! I think that would even be big enough for Fred!!!

    LOL I love the garden pot/ salad bowl feeder.
    Mh cheap raised feeder was a crate turned upside down with a towel on it and putting the bowl on there :)

    Have a wonderful weekend and he is getting so big!!!

  13. What a gorgeous play house! And the brick under the entry door jam is a great idea, to support the wooden jam as Rory's weight increases. You know you're gonna want to lie where you can look out the door. And that's a great idea for a raised feeder, especially as your mom will have to keep upsizing until Rory reaches his full height. Very clever and thrifty; two of our favorite qualities.

  14. OoH My Doggies! Tyler does look like my cuzin Reggie fur sure, mom luvs da name Tyler, her furst doggie had da same name. :) Rory is sure gettin' big!

    PeeS Your new house is PAWSOME!

  15. Hey Stella & Rory!
    Wow, what a pawesome new house! You are sooooo lucky. Now you'll need to start decorating the inside with toys and bones and stuff! Love that creative bowl. :)

  16. Cool new house! How long will Rory be able to fit in there? hehehe.
    I like your mom's raised bowl idea! Very smart!

  17. Very nice doggie might have to make an addition if Rory keeps growing! :)

  18. That's a cool house. Does it come with all the mod-cons like a wide-screen TV so you can watch the Wallabies play the All Blacks tonight?

    Have a great Sunday,


  19. That is not a house... THAT IS A MANSION! Can I get your Dad and James to build one for me too! Oh, and don't forget to hang some paintings and curtains yeah?


  20. That's not a house! That's an outdoor Mansion! Nice and shady and comfy. Y'all are sooooo lucky! You have TWO houses. I'm jello.

    Waggin at ya,

  21. You could have a party in that huge house! Wow, invite all you friends. Do you think that Rory will still fit when he's all grown up?

    You're lucky dogs!

  22. Wow that is a great house you guys got. I mean really. IT is like a guest house too.

    Plus your right about the drooling....I have a freind who does therapy with me at the VA home and she drools something awful. and they just love her.


  23. wow, Rory and Stella – what a fantastic doghouse! You are such lucky pups!although I do wonder if Rory will be able to fit in in a years time – ha ha! :-)

    Yes, my human is quite good at finding cheap "dog equipment" too! She found two raised metal pot stands from the $2 shop to use for me to put my food bowls and water bowls on. They are metal too and so easy to clean. And so much cheaper then the proper "raised stands" but they sell for Danes another giant breeds online!

  24. What a great looking house and Dog oh Dog is Rory getting big! :D


  25. Wow , you are sooo lucky, what a fanrastic den, you'll be able to hide all sorts of things in there! Very creative of the Mom to make the raised feeding bowl - what a great idea! Dex and Lou xxx

  26. Thank you so much for visiting our blog! your new house looks so comfy cosy, we are all so jealous! And that feeding bowl is such a good idea :)

  28. Love your new house!! Love your Mom invention, the flower pot- dog food bowel !!! Great idea!!

  29. That is a pup MANSION, you guys! Your dad and brother are very clever to get it all set up and even and with a roof all by themselves. May you have lots of lovely naps and lots of secret doggie meetings inside that very cool clubhouse... or hey, maybe you could have us all over for a party!

  30. Hey there Guys,
    That doggie-pad looks glorious! You guys sure are well looked after. Have you had a roof-wetting party yet, lol?
    Enjoy the novelty!
    Sending lotsaluv to you all...cute bunch!

  31. Wow..that some new pad you guys have got! Splendid very splendid indeed!

  32. Thor's elevated food bowl was a giant stainless steel mixing bowl nested inside an empty 5 gallon paint bucket. Hooray to your Momma for making Rory's bowl fit him!

    And your new house is super! It even has room for company! Good work, James and Dad!

    xoxo Marjie
