I couldn't imagine having a log home without our puppy and kitty. They seem to complete our log home and make it that much more enjoyable.
Our cat Marvin loves climbing our log staircase and perching himself high in the loft as he hisses at our new Bernese Mountain puppy Scout. Scout loves the outdoors (what dog doesn't) and has been trying to become friends with the local wildlife - chipmunks, red squirrels, black squirrels and the birds. So far none of them have taken her up on her offer. I won't mention the baby turtle I found in her mouth the other day...... YUCK!!
I already have a vision in my head for this winter (don't anyone groan now!) - romping in the snow with Scout (the Bernese breed love the snow) and then sitting in front of the fireplace w/ the cat on my lap and the dog at my feet. It doesn't get any better than that. Oh wait - then the hubby brings me a tall cup of hot chocolate! Now it's complete.
P.S. I have found some cute log cabin items for pets at Black Forest Decor - log dog beds, twig pet feeders, etc. Here's the link http://search.blackforestdecor.com/search?vwcatalog=newportantiques...
