My husband found a cradle – very well made but dark brown. All I could see was a mother dog and her puppies piling up in it. My idea ended up like this.
I will admit that the lace and burlap really don’t do well with puppies, but it was one of my “dog moments”. It has all new bedding, pillow, reversible quilt coverlet, and a foam mattress. It would not serve well as a bassinet because the wooden top would bang up a baby’s head if you didn’t pull him/her out carefully. It would be a great doll cradle, but I’m still going for a puppy cradle.
