On May 23, 2016, My dear friend, Diana, will be honored by New York’s well known pet adoption service, BIDAWEE. Diana is a long time patron of Bideawee and owns a very special long haired dachshund named “Stanley Sweetheart ” whom she adopted through them.


“For more than 112 years, Bideawee has been the leading pet welfare organization serving metropolitan New York and Long Island. Through a vast array of services Bideawee cultivates and supports the life-long relationships between pets and the people who love them. Please explore the site and get to know more about how Bideawee can accompany you and your pet through your life-long journey together.”

My husband and I are excited to join Diana and her husband, Peter at the 2016 Bideawee Ball as she gets recognized and honored for all she has done for the organization.

Since I have been having so much fun making my pet beds, I decided to make one for Bideawee to put into the silent auction at the upcoming event. I went to the junk shop and bought an old drawer that was perfect for the new project. Four bun feet and a coat of primer later, the new bed was in the works.


I bought a blanket from the Bideawee shop and used that for the cushion.


I used their colors of brown, pink and white for the theme of the bed and also incorporated the dog and cat logos into the design.



Of course, I had to use the same knobs I put on Buddy’s bed because they are so cute!


A fun pattern finished up the other three sides…


And when it was all done Stanley  had the honors of being our model!


To make a donation, bid on the bed, attend the event, or if you are considering adopting a very special pet, please visit the Bideawee website at https://www.bideawee.org/

Stanley thanks you!!!

  1. Beautiful! You are extremely talented and creative. I want you to help me design the exterior and interior of my new Tiny House! When it’s time, of course, and only if you’re interested. I’m crazy gaga over your horse trailer, and I think you’d knock the tiny house movement into next week!
