Chris and his wife had decided to put two beds together to accommodate the family of nine, as they had previously been very cramped. But it wasn’t enough.

Chris, who also needs his own space in bed, said:

“Pit bulls shrink and take up minimal space, but greyhound paws take up a lot.”

Although they pushed the two beds closer together, the couple had to contact a carpenter to help them with a bigger bed.

Chris said:

“I’m actually meeting with someone tonight to do our custom frame, and we’re going to build stairs and a ramp into the frame.”

“We have had nine dogs, two have died in the past two years. They all come from different backgrounds and have different temperaments, and they all work together.”

The sleeping arrangements speak to the bond that unites the family, a group of humans and dogs from across the country who come together each night to stay close to each other.

Finally the family managed to have a bigger bed so that everyone could have their space.
