several months ago i made a couple of matching dog beds for my beagle and my bassett. they're brown with flat, white piping and their names are appliqued on the front (though they rarely sleep in "their" bed) and they're kept in the dogs' room, which is attached to our laundry room.
the dogs are quite happy with them.
so is my youngest daughter. if i'm doing laundry, there's a 50/50 chance that she's laying on one of the dog beds, rolling around (laughing at me for freaking out) in all the dog hair, drool, blech...
so i needed to make her a giant pillow of her own to roll around (sans dog hair and drool).
