Well I cant claim full credit here

I’ve been in spasm for 6 weeks and I was

told that a “Cardboard Whelping box WOULD

be purchased. Now that was cruel :(

So I had the Jolly Rouges get this together and built

this one,

It was made from an 8’ x 4’ 1/2” Birch Plywood

4 1” broom handles 48×1 1/2” drywall screws

finished with a Danish Oil Mix

Finished size 48” square x 12”

So Ryan, Gordon & Arthur; Thank you guys

Thembi 6 brindle & 1 white Boxers in the Box

Update

In photo #2 you can see the idea behind the

“Pig Rails” they give the pups a safety time out box :)

They are for the first 5-7 days and also good for new

Mums as they can push against the sides.

Looks like a fine build! But I need enlightenment: What purpose the broomsticks?

HAHA Stephen, that was awful and you beat me to it. :o)

That’s a nice box Jamie. I’ve never heard of the broomstick idea before but it sounds like a good idea. When my old dog had puppies, we used to blow up a kids paddling pool and put some newspaper in the bottom.

I counted twice and only came up with 5 pups, are the other two bashful? Great wood working project, now
are you going to build a pup door for the room when they get a little bigger, or just newpaper the entire floor?
Nothing like fresh puppie breath. Thank you for sharing.

Well made, Jamie and far better than a cardboard one any day. Hope you are feeling better soon.
