Many dog owners are used to share their bed with their pups, but things can get a little bit harder when you have 8 dogs in your family. Mariesa and Chris Hughes of Clifton Park, New York — who run a dog rescue asked a local artisan, Michael’s Custom Interiors, to create a giant bed that could fit their needs.
“I wake up and I think, ‘This is incredible. I’m like a contortionist with Stig spooning me and Gremlin between my legs and Sam sharing my pillow,’” Mariesa said, joking to ABC News. “They love it. They love to just be near us. So however we can make that happen, they’re happy.”
It took six months to build the 13 ft long by 8 ft wide bed. The attention to detail the artisan put into his work is remarkable, as the bed includes a stair for the smaller dogs of the pack, and Michael even carved paw prints of his own senior dog into the banisters.
“I’m a dog lover myself, especially senior dogs,” he said. “It broke my heart because I can’t imagine all the love and work these people put into their organization. They came up with the idea for the king-sized bed and asked me to come up with the concept to make it all work.”
