Several times in the past two weeks, NewMama and I came home to find that Ramsay had turned the foam tile flooring of his pen into his new favorite toy. We couldn't bitter-apple him because he never played with the flooring while we were around. Replacement of the tiles didn't do much good, as we would return from work to find new chunks of foam strewn about the pen and a dog in denial: "I swear to dog, I didn't do it! It was that English bulldog down the street. He did it after he pooped in our yard and his human didn't clean it up!"
NewMama's solution was to try a sheet of linoleum which, to our surprise, came in 6x9ft bundles! A little trimming here and there and Ramsay's 6x6 bachelor pad was new again! As a finishing touch, we added a small area rug that we weren't using for anything in particular - as Ramsay loves the feel of carpet.

The renovations to the pen are surely welcome, but Ramsay's ultimate favorite place in the house (when we're home) is still NewMama's kitchen rug in front of the sink - where he monitors us to make sure we're preparing our meals to his satisfaction! Our little chef IS named after Gordon Ramsay after all!
