Super Easy Cedar Dog Bed
I bought zippered pillow covers and filled them with cedar shavings..careful to take out the big chunks the grinder misses...then I bought pillow cases at the thrift store for .10 cents each and slipped it over the zippered case and presto I had an instant dog bed that helps keep fleas at bay because of the cedar..
All I have to do for cleaning is take the pillow case off and wash it..I dump out the shavings once every weeks or so into my chicken pen and add new shavings to my zippered case and off we go again...all my rescued dogs love them..it's a great way to recycle the dog bed material.
I have anywhere from 8-20 rescues in and some are not house trained so these beds are perfect because I can change the filler material in a minute..I bought plenty of extra pillow cases so I can change often...ohh and my dogs are Shih Tzus and Pekingese with very long hair..the cedar also helps keep them smelling good ( like a hampster..lol)
Editor's note: Kelly, what a marvelously, practical idea. Bless you for taking care of so many homeless dogs!
