I finished building a crate for the new member of our family, Pyle. I brought him home this morning from a farm in Rochester.  Pyle will be five weeks old on Wednesday.  His momma got hit by a car a little over a week ago, so he's going to get extra love for the first few weeks of his life.  He's a heeler/aussie mix.

He's taking a nap in his new house now.  

I made the house out of the same tongue and groove oak flooring as the spice rack.  I framed it with 2x4s and used the oak as slats for the crate.   Bill Dawson helped me forge the hinges a few months ago.  They finally found a good use. 

Little Si and Pyle getting to know one another.
