Where would we most likely find your pet in your home?: Running around or lounging in the yard, perhaps racing through his play tunnel. If inside, probably splayed out on the cool wood floors, or curled up and/or playing in his super puppy fort of sorts under the pool table that has his kuranda hammock bed and a pile of toys.

Pet specific features of the home: There are milk crates of toys in the kitchen, yard, and in NOTlabs... upside down milk crate combined with non slip pad is also the perfect height for his food dishes! He quickly took over our Fatboy bean bag chair... when tiny (12 lbs) he would have puppy freak outs spinning and digging and diving on to it, which he still tries to do now, but its a bit different at 70lbs! Letting him move in under the pool table has been a fantastic use of space, and it gives him some privacy (and a great viewpoint of all things going on in the living room) and letting us have our floor space still open.

What do you love most about living with your pet?: You can't not smile constantly. And how can you resist running around outside more when an adorable face pops up on your laptop screen begging you to play?

Thanks, Jean and Sean!
