The Dog Who Lived. In Chesterfield, Missouri, one dog is finding out how it feels like to be Harry Potter – or at least how it feels like to sleep in his bedroom.
About a month ago, dog lover and all-around handy guy Michael Beezy Barber decided to turn the dark and dusty space under his staircase into a swanky bedroom for his dog, Kenji.
In a series of photos on his Facebook page, Barber shows how he transformed the room step-by-step, first cleaning out the dust and cob webs, then eventually putting in tiles and a door. He even put in LED lights, a book shelf (which he eventually turned into a toy shelf because dogs can’t read), a cooling vent, and a surveillance camera!
‘Those of you who find it better to crate/kennel your dogs when you’re gone might find this an attractive alternative than having a big plastic or metal crate sitting in your living room’, Barber says.
‘It’s big enough for him to move around and play a little bit, but compact enough so he doesn’t want to use the bathroom in that space!’ he adds. You can see more of Baber’s DIY photos here.
