Simpatico: Dog Bed aka Shelle is Bored

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Dog Bed aka Shelle is Bored

There is 6 million inches of snow outside and I am bored. Well, I was bored. Now I am just happy. Soon you will understand why!

Milo loves sleeping under my desk. Up until today he slept on old towels or blankets, haphazardly thrown into the corner next to my filing cabinet. I doubt he cared, but I always did! It was not only unattractive, but it was probably more of a fire-hazard than I would like to admit as it was close to my tower computer, 2 modems, a switch, a sub-woofer, and all the 3 million wires that it takes to run all the computer goodies I demand.

Today I made him a bed. Not just any bed, but a bed with a built in blankie! It is made from one of those polar fleece throws you can get anywhere for less than $5.00. I didn't take any 'in progress pictures, because I didn't know if it would turn out worthy of self applause!

The total cost for this? $1.50 for the throw at Goodwill. I prettified it with some blue cording I had left over from another project, which does not match my room, but I am not going to complain... I stuffed it with a King-size pillow I had laying around in a closet for overnight guests.

I think he is pretty happy, don't you?

(If you are worried about Dixie being jealous, don't be... Girlfriend takes her naps on my bed, snuggled up with her polar bear under the duvet!)
