So I made these crazy dog beds in the hope that if the dogs had really cozy beds, they would stay out of my bed!  I have one dog that is a nester by nature, and likes to curl up.  The bigger dog is a couch hog!  So I tried to make him his own couch to accommodate his 'unique' comfort.

Both are made out of fleece, and have zippers on the bottom so the covers can be removed and washed easily.

The couch sewn of the same idea of our couch, just shrunk down.  I gave it structure by rolling some quilts around a pool noodle, and the bottom is many layers of folded blankets.

The nest bed is a doughnut shape with a thick bottom. The sides have structure by rolling a blanket around some flat foam, and then stood up like a doughnut, and the bottom again is filled with folded blankets.

    Why is it that dogs seem so comfortable at all times? As a restless sleeper, it makes me jealous. Nice job on the beds.

    Haha, thanks, that dog knows how to live! spends most of the day looking out the window at the nice view, chases small mammals until he's tiered, repeat!

    I want to be my dog when I grow up :)
