    Sometimes 'good' ideas really are good!

    My dogs have an old bed in my sun porch that has seen much better days. I decided to make them a new one. I had this old coffee table that was about to go out in the trash when I this idea....How could I use an old coffee table, a baby bed mattress, and a quilt to make a bed for my fur babies? Here's what I came up with.

    What a clever idea you came up with and the quilt is beautiful. Your babies are very lucky to have you to take care of them.

    Your doggies are very lucky indeed! I would venture to "sleep" on that bed myself, due to the lovely quilt you used!! ...What a great idea, too!!

    Clever of you. Of course we have to pamper our babies. Right now mine is asleep on 'my' bed.

    Well Sister, you've done it again. Once you get an idea, you make it happen. I know the dogs will be quite happy with their bed. You know since I don't have a dog, maybe you could quilt me one.

    Haha great! Does your dog like to be higher up? I thought you were going to take the legs off, flip it over, and put the mattress in there.

    You never cease to amaze me. And only you would make a quilt for your dog. Annie has been asking about her quilt, but I keep telling her I don't speak Rott. Great, easy idea for dog bed. and great use of an old crib mattress, and a really cool quilt.

    What a great doggie mommy you are!!! Love the quilt you made for their bed-really pretty! And the quilting on it is marvelous! Now I have a very unhappy doggie at my house-you see he is always in my lap when I am on the computer and he saw how spoiled your fur babies are..............geeeee................
