I started out like this: Last week on Craiglist I found a 10 x10 kennel and concrete blocks very cheap - it was a 2 1/2 hour drive but worth it!! This is their new home! Once I get a top big enough to cover the whole thing I won't worry as much and they won't have to be locked in the dog houses any more!! I am considering covering the top with hardware cloth then attaching the too small shade cloth over that. I am going after hardware cloth to go around the bottom to keep predators from grabbing my babies or my babies getting their heads stuck!! Maybe even tin? Any suggestions on what I can plant around it? It sits under 2 large trees so there is plents of shade - a green thumb is something I do not have.....a friend suggested winter cabbage. Would they eat this?
