We now have puppy pens for the boy and girl cages so the GPs have a huge grass run during the day. Creating shade is the new problem though. They love boxes on their side or with doors cut in them but any moisture and they are ruined. Pet shops sell tunnels like this made from soft pine, but at around $45 each and when you need several, I decided to have a crack at making our own. It was just as easy as I expected. For the next ones I will make them longer and not at tall. But definitely happy with the result so far.
We used branches collected from around the property, choosing the straightest ones we could find.
I then used a drop saw to cut them to roughly 40cm long. I then marked out lines on the workbench to use as guides for the drilled holes.
Then it was just a case of threading them onto some strong wire. Which the ever-so-helpful dogs wanted to join in on.
One all pieces were pushed down as tightly as possible I cut the wire and bent it into a small loop to stop them sliding off. Then just bend into shape. Easy as that.

The girls at All Tizzied Up had a busy weekend doing Easter craft. Their first creations were these cute little hand made head bands.
Mum has taken step by step photos that do all the explaining themselves.
Felt, plain headband, ribbon, scissors and pipe cleaners.
Trace around your ear shape
Do the same again with your ear centre.
Cover the head band with ribbon in your choice of colour.
Twist pipe cleaners
Once in position, glue the 2 sides of the ear together,
Add the centre
And there you have some easy bunny ears
