Suitcase Dog Bed

When I saw a picture of this on the internet I had to make one for my son's dog Chase. On my hunt for a suitcase I found one at a local shop, and asked if she had anymore, I wanted to find the perfect one and she found this one as she opend it up it fell apart and she said I could have it for free. I bought another one just because she was nice and she had lower prices than other places.
it really didn't matter that it was broken in half because I was going to add a piece of wood at the hinge so it would not close. i made a bed of black shearling and added photos of chase and his owners a bow and a doggy bone made of muslin with his name ironed on with letters.
