FWIW, we have no dog.

Our house came with a doghouse, but we have no dog.

We both like them, but cats have been better for us with our multiple moves over the years.  Now, with funds tight, it wouldn’t be nice to bring in any animal that would only add to our expenses.

Last year I planned to somehow convert said doghouse, but never made up my mind as to what.

We still have no dog, but the doghouse remains.
