So this poor mutt is now in a “roomy” crate!!? It had more room when it was tied up! At least it could stand up and move a foot or two – but not anymore! Why not put it in a yard with a fence, or let it be free in the house? I can’t stand people who put their dogs in a cage while they’re away for hours. What are you promoting here, Guy? Why not show Phil playing with the dog in a dog park, or taking if for a walk? I don’t think having it confined to a small cage is treating it very kindly. Yeah I know the comments are going to be like: well at least it’s better than having no food or water or shade. Yeah, great, still no freedom. How about playing with it and letting it walk and run?
