Since I have a cash flow issue, I have been on the search for a cool a roo type bed for Dexter.

Insert Pinterest! (I swear I use it more than google)

So, for under $15 I made him one. I'm probably going to have to replace the fabric I used, but I think he likes it for now!!!

I'm going to make another for my chihuahua that's about 1/4 the size. He's snoring up a storm now so I think he likes it. I was scared he was going to terrified of it-

It look fantastic,great colour too,to get good quality dog bed you have to pay quite a bit,improvise and change the filling etc or make it yourself for the fraction of the cost I love home made stuff -looks really well made!
Im waiting until neighbour come back so i can have a bit of s help as i got a few projects myself waiting ;-)

That looks great. We've been toying with the idea of trying to make some for the girls too but just haven't gotten that "toit" yet.

Looks great.... couple of questions:
Did you find the 3 way PVC corner fittings locally or did you have to order them?
How did you attach it along the sides?
