What do you do with your pets when you go on vacation? Do you hire a dog sitter to come to your home to feed your pets and take them out? That is probably the best thing, that way your pet doesn’t have to leave home. But, sometimes, that is hard if you don’t want people in and out of your house while you are gone. The other option is to board them.
The only ‘trouble’ with that is there are no comforts of home at a kennel for your dog. Some kennels encourage you to bring in some items from home, like a pillow or some toys. In Lillestrom, Norway, Igor’s family took this concept to a whole other level.
Igor’s humans, the Halvorsens, were going to leave the country for a short time and Igor, a bulldog, couldn’t come with them. Kai, Igor’s dad, wanted Igor to be a comfortable as possible while the family was away.
So, he constructed a mini-home inside the kennel Igor would be staying in!
What a lucky dog to have such a loving family! It is clear that the Halvorsen’s think of Igor as more that just a pet – he is family!
