I have yet to buy Brody a proper dog bed for his crate. I have been using old blankets and quilts, but he has shredded and eaten every one. I have tried putting chew toys in the crate with him, but he prefers to chew on the corners of the blankets and pull out the stuffing of the quilts. When I catch him at it, I take it away immediately, but I hate the idea of him spending the cold nights lying on a bare plastic crate bottom. He doesn't seem to mind, though.
