    Default Contents of the crate...

    It cracks me up to look in the puppy's crate, it's like a window into what is important to her.

    We have a 7 month old 3/4 Border Collie 1/4 Siberian Husky rescue. She's a terror (of course, given her "breeding") and quite a character. She's crate trained, but we never use it. She either goes with us everywhere or we have a sitter for her. She's Destructo Dog, and very sensitive and insecure, so we don't like to leave her alone. But, her crate is her special place, the door is always open and she uses it to work on important dog things in private, my husband calls it her office.

    Today, in Molly's office, I found two plastic dinosaurs, three socks, a couple of picked clean beef femur bones, a plastic bowling pin (with lots of tooth marks), a chopstick and some papers from my work, only slightly chewed on the corners and a pillow from the couch, unscathed. Funny, what she thinks is important enough to take into her office for saving and keeping away from our nosy ACD.

    Rule #2 Refer to rule #1.

    I have a dog crate in the living room I got for crating Puff during storms.

    Usually, if you look inside, you'll find a cat. They took it over.

    My aussie cross is a hoarder too, she likes to gather up a pile of Nylabones and put them in our bed. At least 6-10 of them. Every night when I go to bed, I have to take them off the bed before I get in, and they will all be back there again the next night.

    we used to find rocks under the pillow....

    My mom has an old dog house in the courtyard. The dogs don't really use it - unless they got something to hide.

    My mom calls it the hoard....
