I know, you're thinking you're really glad you don't see a body in this thing. Yes, it is a gigantic pair of boxer shorts. In point of fact, they were boxer shorts I'd used when I was pregnant with Ro. I dug them up in the hopes of wearing them again, only to find that the elastic was all brittle and decomposed, which accounts for that huge, weird shapelessness (they're a size M, which shows how five years can change one!). However, recycler that I am, I decided to make something useful with them -- hence, a boxer thing for Kip!
Kip never took to the fancy dog bed things which I'd gotten her when she was younger, preferring to just sleep or lounge about on the bare floor. But for some time now, I'd catch her sleeping on an odd bit of laundry, or the very edge of the comforter which would sometimes slip down during the night. I concluded that she liked cotton, with a bit of airy padding, and the boxer thing is just that! It's filled (not too compactly) with fibrefill, and every opening has been sewn tightly shut. Here are a few pictures from the past week!
The perfect size for lounging...
... or moping...
... or crashing.
Yay for recycling!
