Five small dog napping niches for under $10 at Pet Stuff Resale

This 17x17 canvas cube holds its shape after being jumped on, so small dogs still feel elevated, an all important factor! The base is plastic so it stays cleaner. It also has a pouch for holdinng treats and toys. 9.00

This hideaway is held in place by velcro so can fold up for transport to your weekend swankienda. Gives small dogs a place to hide, yet watch all that is going on. About 12x17, it has a removeable fleecy pad. 8.00 

 These mummy sleeping bags(their real description) are addictive for small, burrowing dogs. They can be used unzipped  for several dogs or folded over for just one dog. The pink one is about 4 ft long, the blue one a tad shorter and is from REI . I currently have 3 sleeping bags on  my bed to reduce encroachment skirmishes.  8.00

Your dog could be here!
 This vinyl cube also holds its shape when a dog jumps into it and is a little lighter in weight than the canvas one, but the same size.  7.00

All of these items have been consumer tested by various rodents at my house, mostly chihuahuas, and meet their admittedly low standards. If it's soft, they are happy. I can vouch for durabiity and cleanliness!

A reminder that if you take a picture of your pet in/on any itme purchased form Pet Stuff Resale, I will feature them in a future blog.

We will NOT look at the camera, we made a pact!

These precious babies were turned into a shelter together as strays. They are all the same age, about 18 months old and the two rough coated ones are obviously litter mates and the 3rd smaller one may be as well. They are all altered and heartworm negative. I have been fostering them for about 6 months as they had no social skills, but I have yet to come up with good names; Eenie, Meeny and Moe didn't work, nor did Larry, Moe and Curly. Don't even suggest Huey, Louie and Dewey! The 2 rough coated ones are a male and female at 8 lbs and the other one, a 5 pounder, I call HoneyB after her lookalike Honey the Pibble. I would like to place the pair together and all 3 will need patient homes as they are still a tad spooky. Of course al adult homes are needed in ths case. They are crate trained and skilled at both burrowing and snuggling.They are also fine with other dogs, even bigger ones.
