@cognition You don't pay for the weather ! If it is fine, Basenjis will sunbathe. My neighbours save me discarded curtains and carpet off-cuts so they always have plenty of comfy bedding. And my son built them a large table which is placed again a South facing wall, and covered in carpet.
Only time they can't use that (apart from when it rains) is when we are crushing and pressing apples for cider. Their table is ideal for use then !
@JENGOSMonkey has the right of it too. Boxes can be jumped on and then shredded. HUGE fun !
