A while back, in this post, among other things I shared some rough drawings I did for an idea I had for a piece of furniture that would help me get a little more organized.
The idea was to have a "puppy unit" that would hold all of the things I need close at hand for my Dog Guide foster puppies.
My husband, a retired elementary school principal, is a self taught and very talented woodworker. You can see some of his work here and here. Bill likes to have a winter project, so I gave him my drawings and asked if he might be interested in making it for me over the next few months. He asked me to draw some more detailed scale drawings and then he was off and running. But instead of taking his time, he was determined to finish it in time for Christmas!
Yoshi and her sister Yona (visiting for a few weeks) are sitting pretty, showing off the new unit!
And of course all of the toys are contained in the open bin which is easily accessible to the puppies so they can help themselves.
On the side of the unit is a towel bar to hang a wet towel after it's been used to dry off a wet dog or wipe paws.
