At long last, Tranquility Pastures has a farm dog. His name is Omega, he is 6 weeks and 3 days old. For now he is housed in a suite in the Main Barn. A 6 foot by 10 foot play area and a warm hut area with a bed.
The red is from the red light heat lamp over the warm hut area. He is a Norwegian Elk Hound so does not need a hot area, but as a pup still needs more warmth than just a dog house. So for his first winter this is the set up - all within an inclosed room in the big barn.
He seems to be adjusting well to us and we are thoroughly enjoying and loving him. We are working on getting Omega used to a harness so we can go on walks and teach him what is what around the farm. He does enjoy indoor cuddle time, indoor play time, and outdoor walk abouts.
