Pet Peek

I just couldn’t help myself. I laughed out loud when I saw this pet friendly peek a boo. I would venture to suggest, a secret peek would be something of interest to both humans and canines alike. A portal to the neighbor. A peep hole on a grander scale. How about checking out the neighboring cat or chickens, before blindly sounding the barking alarm. Somehow, it strikes me as funny, as we put up privacy barriers to hide behind, this blows a hole wide open. Not only providing the view out of course, but the view into the private realm as well. How about installing a couple of these puppies in your front door? One for you, and one for Fido. Too fun.
