A new dog bed!

I decided that the pack could use a new dog bed. Part of the reason for that was the fact that I was able to get a skid (or pallet as I am constantly reminded here on the east coast) from work. Rather than have dog bedding directly on the floor, a raised bed would be nicer for them. So, out came the tools and of course the helpers were excited.

Since we live in such a small space, there isn't much room to be doing projects like this. I had to be extra careful of the blind trio. Blind and partly deaf Brook was especially interested, as she is with most anything out of the ordinary.

Forest, as usual, was right in the midst of things and couldn't wait to try it out.

Forest: "Is it going to be this big?"
The Mom: "No. I'm not done yet. Move your butt."

Here is the finished product -

Brook approved
Inspected by Bill
Forest approved and inspected by Hiker.


  1. Great idea and way to recycle and reuse!!!

  2. It is a great bed. But we think the dogs would like you to have a bigger bed, so they could sleep with you.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. Clever you it looks great and we can see it is a big hit. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Great idea! We have a ridiculous number of dog beds around here--especially considering the fact that Wrigs is an only dog. :-)

  5. Very nice!!! You are so handy.

    We are like Susan and Wrigs... Two dogs and a million dog beds :)

  6. So nice to have helpers when working on a project!

  7. What a great project! You would never have gotten it done if not for the "helpers"! ;)

  8. Cute! Looks like it's been approved!
