Sean Farrell, pet owner loves his best friend doggy Buster so much that he wanted to build his buddy a home. After getting some inspiration off of the internet, Farrell decided to build a private escape for his buddy in a corner of his house so he can have his own “boudoir.” 

“The boudoir was an idea to give Buster a cozy space of his own in the same room as me. To really let him know he can be safe around me and feel secure in his little den at the same time. [After finishing it], he went in there almost instantly. It has been a few weeks now and he’s happy to sleep and hang out in his house,” said Farrell. 

“From start to finish, the boudoir took me about four days to make. After I painted it and used carpet adhesive, Buster wasn’t allowed in for another 2 weeks. I’ll never fuss or play with him when he’s in there as I want him to feel it’s his own little corner. But if he wanders on to my turf he’s in tug of war hell.”

Despite not having any previous experience in construction, Buster’s boudoir turned out to be absolutely ‘pawesome!’ 


47-year-old Farrell told Bored Panda that “Buster is my 12-year-old rescue Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I’ve had him just over 2 years. He’s not had the best life and that changed the day I met him. Initially, I was only supposed to foster him but I fell in love, and we [both] knew we were meant to be together.”

We can all relate about past traumas and Farrell shared that: “Due to bad experiences in his life, he doesn’t like to be around single men and when we’re alone at home he stays on his own in the bedroom. He will only come down when other people are here as well. Or for walks and food. We’ve been working really, really hard on his trust issues. And because his behavior has improved so much, he is now a therapy dog and we visit residential homes hospitals and a brain injury rehabilitation clinic. He also accompanies people with low social skills, autism, agoraphobia, etc.”

He designed Buster’s little corner refuge to blend in with the look of his living room.

“I had no real plan, I just bought some wood and plyboard, and just did it as I went along due to its enormous success with over 20 million views on Facebook.”

Farrell explained. He also added a lot of little details to make the space more homey and cozy such as a TV and shelf mood lighting. There is also an electric fan that he added, which works quite well. 


All the items inside Buster’s home were items that his owner already had in the house, and all of them are battery run, so safety-wise, it is better since no electricity runs inside the boudoir. 

“There are also pictures of my previous dog Zook on the wall. Zook was a bit of a celebrity. He was disabled and had a very large Internet following all over the world.”

Zook passed away when he was 17-years-old, and he was the reason on how Farrell was able to find and adopt Buster. 

Farrell spent a total of about $104-$131 (£80-£100) on his best friend’s new kick-ass crib. Check out Buster’s Facebook page for new updates on this heartwarming friendship, and new home. Would you make your pet their own home as well?
