I really got sick of Lola's cage or kennel in our room. It looked, well not so pretty and it was getting to be uncomfortable for her. The sound of her 'redecorating' everynight at 2, 3, 4 am was quite annoying. So, with pallets we decided to make Lola a custom bed. Literally, she has not gotten out since we showed it to her. With a little custom upholtery fabric, it's complete. Blows my mind that PetSmart wants $89.99 for a cheapo, tiny bit of stuffing, medium size dog bed with no frame that dogs love to chew up cause let's face it, they think it's ugly.
