I have two dogs that act like total clowns.
One of them is a beagle and he likes to dig holes in the yard while chasing chipmunks.
The other is a ferocious and loyal little chihuahua who likes to follow the beagle around most of the day. I let them spend as much time as they want in our fenced backyard. They even enjoy sitting out there in the pitch black during the evenings when I let them out before I go to bed. I don’t know how I’d get by right now without my two dogs, they’re my only companions in this house. It’s a process that I’m used to—feeding them, letting them in and out the back door, and playing with them whenever I get finished with work assignments for the day. Now that we’re headed into cold winter weather, they both like sitting on the air vents for the central furnace. Whenever the hot air starts flowing, they’ll each find one of six floor vents throughout the house and will take a nap as their bodies quickly warm up from the heat. I wish I had the money, resources, and time to tear up my tile flooring just to install radiant heated subfloors. Then I would need to have someone rebuild my tile floor or install a wood floor. Radiant heated flooring would save me money while making my two dogs even happier than they are now, but the thought of destroying perfectly good tile only to reconstruct something similar is dizzying. The costs of the entire project are intimidating.
