LOL! I know the feeling...I have a Greyhound that has decided that two thirds of my bed is his!
We have a new pup and is growing super quick. He currently has an old very dilapidated kennel although still waterproof etc...but I would so love to build him a new bed with just a few things in the wish list.
#1 A hinged roof to clean the kennel or to simply replace the blankets and so I can remove the day bed easily which is about 1200mm x 800mm
#2 To be built on a standard pallet so it can be moved with a tractor for example, as we live on a farm
#3 Would love to be able to insulate the entire kennel including floor, walls and ceiling.
I think I could build it if I could watch a video as it is easier than reading instructions. I have all the necessary tools, so would love to hear from anyone out there that has built a similar kennel??
