Chara, our 1 year old golden retriever, has out grown her old kennel. We got back and after seeing how much she had grown realized this would not work any more. Her old Vari-Kennel was too small.
After Heather and I were talking about the bartering system and how it has really been lost from our culture, I decided to put it to the test. I went down to the local pet store/market and traded a shop owner my new-ish looking kennel for a larger metal kennel. No Money changed hands just goods. I was pretty excited of my trade.
