Chris and Mariesa Hughes have adopted 7 rescue dogs and they ALL want to sleep on the bed with them.
Chris told the Today show; “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.So we built the megabed.”
The megabed takes two mattresses — a king up top and a full turned sideways below. It’s almost of 14 feet long, and 7 feet wide. The headboard alone is 6 feet tall. ( The average king-sized bed is 6.6 feet long, and a bit over 6 feet wide.) As you can see below, the massive bed has built-in stairs for the older dogs.
These doggie saviors are founders of a The Mr. Mo Project, a nonprofit that gets elderly and sick dogs out of shelters where they face a high risk of euthanasia, and places them in homes for the rest of their lives. Since many of the pups have ongoing medical and living expenses, the nonprofit covers these expenses for the new owners. Awwwww….
