I’ve been meaning to write a big thank you to The DIY Girl
I still have no clue how I stumbled upon The DIY Girl’s Dog Cot tutorial but I’m so glad I did.
We had a lot of emails back and forth and she is so reasonably priced.
I can’t sew well. Â I have a machine but my poppa Jack was the man with the good machine for jeans, drop cloths and even leather. Â My Gram taught me to sew and I can sew straight lines and fix what needs to be fixed.
My biggest problem was picking a colour for the material. Â I knew I wanted a neutral but when The DIY Girl sent me a photo of what was available I had a hard time picking out. Â http://www.thediygirl.com/dog-cot-slings-for-sale/Â This link will show you the vast selection of colours.
Keely is a Yellow Labrador but her colour is what is called a fox red or red fox. Â She sheds a dog a day and more if she gets excited or
Ranger is a brindled boxer Wheaton Terrier mix. Â He doesn’t shed as much but enough.
My husband cut the PVC into the pieces and assembled the first cot. Â The pupalups were very apprehensive at first but now I can usually find one or the other in the cot. Â They won’t get on it together much to Ranger’s dismay because he’d love to just cuddle with Keely.
I was able to throw out two not so old beds from Costco. Â Keely’s fur is oily and the day after a bath she smells like a dog again. Â I’m going with it’s a lab thing.
I sent The DIY Girl photos and the link to Keely and Ranger’s (keelyandranger)Â Instagram page. Â She had a hard time choosing and wanted to add 50 photos of my pupalups! Â The DIY GirlÂ added a short slideshow of Keely and Ranger on her picture gallery page.
Thank you to The DIY Girl and she still makes the slings and the tutorial is easy to do.
Keely and Ranger Thank you too!
As you can see there is always a toy or two on the beds.
*I paid for my items, I am just genuinely thankful that the DIY Girl is so awesome!
