A Bed For Charlie!

Charlie needed a bed. Before Patrick, the new dog came, Charlie slept on my husband's side of the bed in a dog bed. When Patrick came, I laid down a fluffy comforter beside my bed for him. Guess who decided that was his spot! Charlie!

Well, he would spread the whole comforter around the floor and I had a hard time getting out of bed because of this. Enough was enough!

I took this crib bumper set I bought at the thrift store about a year ago. I bought it because I loved the fabric. I was going to take it apart and use the fabric in something.

I found another use for it!

Charlie now has a new bed!

Looks pretty comfy to me! The main objection from my husband and Jessie when I told them what I was going to do:

"It's pink and he is a boy! You can't make him sleep in a pink bed!"

"If he has an objection, he won't sleep in it!" my response.

Guess he isn't intimidated with the pink. He is old and grouchy and growls all the time at the other dogs if they come near him. But obviously, he has no problem with the pink dog bed I made him.

I am scared by how his eyes showed up in the picture. So Jessie put his picture through PAINT and made him less scary!

When I get up in the morning, I won't be tripping over a queen size comforter that Charlie has decided to carpet the floor with.

Life is Good!

Be back soon!

Why would he object? This is such an awesome idea... and it turned out absolutely beautiful!
