|Trooper was due for some serious snuggle|
time to make up for his vet visit, so he climbed
right up into bed for it Friday night.
|Maya assumed the position on Clay's pillows.|
|Vince doesn't usually get in bed, but|
if there is any petting to be had, he
makes sure to get his share.
|That's Gigi's usual position at the foot of the bed, and that's|
her blanket, but she had more room than usual to stretch
out with Clay out of town.
|The basic frame, about 4' square, the platform|
will be 24" off the ground.
|Here most of the platform is attached, but I've|
turned it upside down to add bracing to the legs.
I had come home from a hike and was hot and tired. I needed a shower and I realized that the dogs needed to be washed as well, but the even the mere thought of bending over while holding and washing a dog made my back hurt. I needed an elevated dog washing platform. I also needed a way to store my canoe where it would be off the ground. They were two very different, unrelated needs, but they coalesced in my head into one project.
|It's not pretty, but it's solid and functional.|
