rat? hardly. A fine protector of the family & a joy to share the home with. Great bed.

Looks like it got the seal of approval. I have 2 of those rats and they are fine protectors of the household. The one will try to hold her own with pitbulls and shepards if we let her. Unfortunately, she would become lunch but not without inflicting some damage. Heart of a lion, that one has.
Really cool looking bed.

How can you call such a cute doggie a rat?Just look at that precious thing…...mmmmmmmm…......cancel that…...on second thought, it is a rat. Nice bed though. Perfect perportions for that thing to sleep on.

I am building the same exact thing and ran across your post! Love the design, it is very very similar to mine and I was wondering if you would be wiling to share it with me. Just curious of your float design and how thick the bed is in and sits down in the top, etc. Thanks!

Thanks Russel. The bed is 37” x 22” and 4” tall plus a 1” hidden base. The inside depth is 3”. The cushion is 5” thick. If I made another one I’d make the cushions softer. Too firm for the dog so she doesn’t use it much. I’ll post a picture of the underside.

How thick is the stock you used on the walls? 1.5 or 2 inches? is it just a piece of ply dadoed into the all the side on the bottom?

I used 3/4 inch walnut and 1/2 inch plywood using a dado cut for the bottom.
