Pet Pagodas and DIY Barkitecture for Dogs and Cats

Bronze and Iron Pagoda Pet Bed with Tassels

Bronze and Iron Pagoda Pet Bed with Tassels

When I pinned the metal pagoda shelf, Pinterest showed me this pet bed. It looks like it is made by the same people. The link was expired and I haven’t found it anywhere, but I did find some other amazing Pet Pagodas, a pattern to sew your own and three books with instructions to make actual functioning outdoor dog houses shaped like a pagoda or anything else you can think of.

This amazing pagoda pet bed is from MacKenzie-Childs. You might have guessed, with the wonderful black and white that she (and Mary Engelbreit) use so beautifully.

Our Courtly Pagoda Pet Bed is the ultimate shrine for the pampered pooch or frisky feline. Made of iron, it features hand-painted stripes, hand-cast bells on the four corners, and is topped with a finial. The accompanying hand-stitched cushion lifts in and out and our Small Pet Bed fits inside.

This pet bed is made of fleece fabric, 50% polyester, 50% viscose with silver raincoat fabric on the inside. It is washable.  They say it is big enough for two cats. It would definitely fit our poodle.
