Duffy the Irish terrier has seen a lot of troubles. Last year, he was diagnosed with diabetes, and the resulting struggle to control his blood sugar levels left him blind.

In this YouTube video uploaded by a paint supply company, Igor's dad, Kai, secretly transforms a dog kennel into a little slice of home – complete with the family's couch, pillows and pictures lovingly placed throughout – so the pooch will be comforted by familiarity while he's temporarily living at his home away from home.
