Update: We got the kennel from my brother. Funny thing.....It's just like Major's. How about that!
I put in the orthopedic foam with a faux sheep wool cover and she is totally moved in. She LOVES her new shelter. We still can't figure out why she prefers a kennel over her big comfy bolster bed.
If that's what she wants, that's what she gets.
It's a bit crowded in the bedroom but it's worth it. Those suckers are big & tall! I might re-arrange the bedroom to make it look better and possibly could have the kennels side by side.
