So I had an old uniform top and decided that it would be perfect for my puppy because he's such a Rambo doggie, ha yeah not really but here it is.
This is the top I ordered a name tape so his bed is just his. I left the buttons and everything on the bottom so that I can take the cover off when it gets dirty.

And here's the Rambo doggie modeling it for me.

The bed is great...but mainly I just wanted to tell you how much I love your dog's name.  When I was younger I used to call my little cockapoo Falcor.  Good times.

That is great... any tips?  My husband is in the airforce and we have SO MANY of those tops lying around!  You have such a cute little munchkin!

Hi guys! Thanks for the complements!
Princessliak as for tips all I did was pull the sleeves to the inside of the shirt and pined it. Then fitted the shirt to the pillow, this is my biggest tip make sure the shirt fits the pillow you bought! Then sewed around where the pillow would be. As I said I left the button area alone so you can still use the buttons to take off the shirt.

That's a really great idea, especially if it is something you used to wear!  Dogs and cats love things that smell like their owners.  I used to have a cat, George (r.i.p.) who would climb into our hamper because he loved being around our dirty clothes!

Our cat Solvie sometimes climbs into my husband's jeans after he takes them off.  I got  a picture of her sleeping right within the waistband of them.

Falcor...falcor...wasn't that the horse? Atreyu's horse from Neverending Story? Or am I remembering wrong?

But i just got a new chihuahua, Cheech [[short for Chicharron, which means pork rinds, haha]] from Mexico City when visiting family, and I need a new bed for him, but being 16 and jobless I have no money. So I think I'll make him one! This is a great idea.

cute dog, by the way ^_^ Very Rambo indeed.

a moment of silence, please, for those who never had the chance, they show up to a partybut they're never asked to dance, the losers, the liars, the bastards, the theives, the cynicists, the pessimists, and those who don't believe in nothing...

Adorable bed!!! I have a velvety top at home that would probably make a great kitty bed. My cat Mel's into luxury. Thanks for the inspiration! Extra kudos for the button idea - I'd probably do something dumb like sew everything together.

And I think Falcor was the luck dragon - kind of white and fuzzy and looked like a big sweet puppy dog. I can see why that's your dog's name!

What a great idea.  Making these things washable is a must.  Supposedly you shouldn't wash it too often, though--dogs like to have their own scent (as well as yours) on their things.  Falcor is adorable.  I have a fuzzy white furball at home, too.  Mine's a Westie, though.

If I was any more open, I'd be inside out.
