Buddy Naps

This is Buddy, (10lbs.) on a new bed I made for his cousin, Charlie (55lbs.). Buddy is old and feeble, but he doesn't know that. He barks at Charlie, from a safe distance, behind a gate. Charlie is a bull dog mix, and could be called the Destroyer. He has chewed and torn through a number of bedding materials. I made this of heavy canvas, and used 2 layers for the top and end casings. I sewed the casings 6 times, to re-re-reinforce them. My son cut the pvc tubes to raise the bed off the floor. We are trying to make Charlie comfortable, despite his rough nature. Maybe the smell of Buddy on the bed will make Charlie happy, dreaming of snacks.
 Dog bed, Number 77 for the year.

Anything you can't make? I notice a distinct lack of color, have you thought about painting or embroidery?

I thought I'd wait until I see if it lasts the night. Then maybe paint?
