A nice first person piece by Nick Barnett who writes The Mustard Yellow House blog ("Two Kiwi guys, two little dogs, one tiny home") about how his dogs Connor and Phoebe fit into his tiny house lifestyle. Among the features of their home is a dog-flap which enables them to come and go between the house and a little fenced backyard, while there is another fenced areaat the front of the house, accessible via french doors. Here's a snippet, but it's well worth reading the whole post (and indeed the rest of the blog):
Dogs are incredibly adaptable. They rarely mope, and self-pity is nonexistent for them. Optimism is their natural state: change their circumstances, and they’ll just try to live the best life possible in those circumstances. We humans should learn from that.
