Yesterday I was feeling a bit creative and decided that instead of spending about $100 (with shipping) on an orthopedic bed for Bubbles I would make her one. She has HD so she needs a more comfy bed than her blankies so this is what I made:

The hot pink side.

And the black side.

Its a little over 4 ft long and 2 1/2 ft wide. It fits in her crate perfectly. It is also alittle over 6" thick. I used egg crates to make her a 'mattress'. She LOVES it and unless she is really interested in something she won't even get up...she just lays there all sprawled out on her new bed

What is it made out of? My grandmother has a rott mix that is getting up in years, and I was thinking this might make a good gift.

I used fleece. so it was REALLY easy. I also used a heavy duty trash bag to cover the egg crates inside, incase of any accidents but I am thinking one of the toddler mattress covers might be better. Will have to check on them at Walmart tonight.
I also got a skull and crossbones rhinestone patch to put on but I couldn't find the stupid iron!
BTW Bubbles is the dog in my avatar
