Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Your dog is your best friend, confidant and accessory du jour. She is also coordinated to go with your unique lifestyle and inimitable fashion sense. You can now get a Puggle (Pug and Beagle mix) or a Shorkie (Shih Tzu and Yorkie mix). You have allergies? No problem! Get a supposedly hypo-allergenic Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon Frise mix). So why would you settle for a simple dog bed with her name embroidered on the side – that is so conventional. Get a customized bed for your princess instead made from a distinctively engineered fabric.


Crypton™ Super Fabrics ( offers a range of textiles to create your own pet bed. Choose from suedes, wovens and textures, with yummy names like Suede Gelato, Frolic Tangerine and Posey Pistachio. Crypton™ Super Fabrics have the honor of having some of their fabrics inspired by William Wegman and Michael Graves.

When you go to the site, you can navigate through a few easy and fun steps to pick the size, shape and fabric that would fit into your apartment’s design scheme. Can’t decide which fabric you like? You can pick a different one for the top and bottom of the bed, so you can flip it whenever the mood moves you.


Muddy paws and drool will never leave dreadful stains or curious odors on these beds. They’re stain, moisture, odor and bacteria resistant. Quite a claim, but these textiles are specially woven with a patented process. Unfortunately custom pet beds cannot be returned. If you would like to feel and see the colors you pick for your pet beds before you place your order, it might be better to get a swatch kit.

To design your own pet bed, go to or order by phone anytime: 1.800.279.7866
