Pawesome Dog Owner Turned An Old-School TV Into A Fancy Dog Bed


It’s almost impawsible to go without cracking a smile at this sweet story. Our pups deserve only the very best, don’t you think? Well, that was certainly the mindset of this dog owner Jonathan when he built a luxurious dog bed for his precious babies.

Jonathan shared his DIY masterpiece on Reddit. They say that folks will know how large your soul his by the way you treat a dog. Well, in that case, Jonathan and his wife have some pretty massive souls, because they went all out to transform an old-school television into an incredible dog bed.

"This is a project we have wanted to do for quite some time," Jonathan told Mashable. "It originally was going to be a fishtank where we kept the general TV appearance, complete with a rounded 'screen' for the front portion." But Jonathan and his wife never did get the fish. Instead, they got two dogs named Sgt. Buckley and Cy so their original plans were altered for their pups.

After an extended search, the couple was able to find the perfect TV for their project at a non-profit called Second Chance that deconstructs buildings and homes and then salvages usable materials and makes them available to the public for sale.

In an Imgur post, Jonathan explained what went into the extensive project, which included removing the TV from the wooden frame, repainting the frame, adding a backboard with wallpaper, adding stained-glass side panels, and of course the bottom cushion.  

After the completion of the DIY project, the couple let the dogs test it out. Luckily, Sgt. Buckley and Cy seem to be warming up to the new bed. "Sgt. Buckley was a little apprehensive when we first set it up, but we put some of his toys in it and he jumped right in," Jonathan told Mashable. "Cy is totally chill, and is just happy to have another place to sleep," said Jonathan.

Sgt. Buckley, the couple's cute corgi, was all smiles after testing out the bed with some of his toys in it. The couple's other pup, Cy, also clearly enjoyed his parents' masterpiece and even the couple's cat joined in on the fun as shown in the video below. 

 According to Jonathan, the bed took roughly 20 hours to complete and was constructed in the course of a month and a half. Now that’s some dedication!
