Adoring Couple Revamp Their Balcony Into A Magical Puppy Paradise

Apartment living may seem cramped, especially with a furry beast sharing space and conveniently not paying rent, but to them it’s just one big playground. Couches? AWESOME. A big bed? I’M IN. Even the not-so-exciting parts just contain fun that’s yet to be had.


But what if a simple, boring balcony were made a little more, well, dog-friendly? That must have been the thought that ran through these pup-ruvin’ parents’ minds as they snuggled up to their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Franklin, one day.

They decided to pupgrade their home and give it a little puppy pizzazz, if you will. First, they drew up the blueprints. Dog house here, some nice foliage there… and what would a home be without a white picket fence?


When construction started, Franklin’s humans began by cutting a few 8-foot lengths of timber into shorter strips for the fence. They then secured them to large pieces of plywood so they’d stand up straight on the concrete floor.


But of course, they had to paint it white!


Then bing, bang, wham, we got a layer of synthetic turf spread over the plywood and a gorgeous little dog house, and viola! Puppy paradise.


And in case you weren’t sure, Franklin insisted on a sign in his honor, as well as his own personal garden. He loves the smell of African Daisies in summer.
