Dog Beds

Left over tongue and groove oak flooring was repurposed to build this bed for our four shar pei. Two sleep on the top bunk and two sleep under...everyone is happy! Two hexagon entries allow the puppies fun places to run and play. Our shar pei are true family members and love to spend their nights "guarding" us.
Entry on the right allows pups to enter/exit or just run through
Steps allow our shar pei easy access without the possibility of developing luxtating patellas or increase chances of hip displaysica by constant jumping
Left Entry. The black accent enhances the hexagon shape
I removed the steps in order to show the tongue and groove oak board detail

    How cool is this bed?!! Very clever and looks like the babies love it.

    I have a dream for the pups and me (forget the kitty kats for now)...... and it is a window box that is made with firring (or is it furring) strips. I would have two separate spaces for the pups, and on the end a spot for my stuff. See, the kids always get everything, even in our old age. I just have to come up with the money to make it... and I am also scared because I can not finalize my building plans........ so HELP?
