A Bulldog owner in Norway went all out to make sure his pooch had all the comforts of home during his first stay at a kennel.

Igor hadn’t spent a night away from his family before their vacation to Thailand earlier this spring. So owner Kai surprised both Igor and the rest of his family by re-creating their living room — inside the kennel.

Kai and his friends stopped at nothing, putting up drywall and painting the kennel the same familiar gray color as his home. Then, while Kai and his wife drove Igor to his vacation spot, Kai’s friends scrambled to beat them there with the family’s living room furniture, decorations and plenty of bones to keep the pup happy.

Kai’s family was shocked when they saw Igor’s accommodations. And Igor himself was delighted, settling right in on the couch.
