Couple Builds ‘Megabed’ So They Can Have Room For All 8 Rescue Dogs

Kicking the dogs out of the bed was not an option!

It can be quite difficult getting a good night’s rest letting a dog sleep on the bed. How does a dog seem to take up so much space? Well, imagine sharing the bed with eight dogs…

That’s why Chris and Mariesa Hughes had to come up with a solution. The New York couple absolutely loves their eight dogs, but sleeping at night can be a real problem.

Kicking the dogs out of the bed was not an option, so they came up with the idea to build a “megabed.”

“At nighttime all of the dogs want to sleep on the bed and sometimes it becomes too cluttered and we end up being pushed off of the bed or sleeping on the couch,” Chris told Today.

So Chris, a furniture maker, started working on the 14′ long by 7′ wide bed…

The finished product took six months to build, but it was totally worth it. It features stairs for the dogs to climb and paw prints on the headboard as a tribute to their 16-year-old dog who’d recently passed away.

And to solve their storage problem, Chris added drawers around the base of the megabed. What a great idea!

Now feeling well-rested for the first time in years, Mariesa jokes that maybe they’ll adopt some more dogs.

“I’m sure one of these days we will find out,” she said.
