Princess Canopy Beds Sells Britney Spears a Dog Bed…
MODESTO (CBS13) – There have been plenty of stories of how Hollywood stars treat their pets like babies. Now, that’s playing into the strengths of a burgeoning Modesto business with one very famous customer.
Britney Spears is famous for her music and love life, but grabbing somewhat smaller headlines is her love of her four-legged friends. Spears’ dog lives a charmed life, as anyone can see from her Twitter page. Now, Hannah Spears, a teacup yorkie, is going to sleep like a princess thanks to a family-run local business.
“I was so elated, was so very excited, and I just think it was just confirmation that we’re going in the right direction,” said Joanna de Lemos.
Joanna and her husband, Samuel, have been creating fantasy canopy beds since 2003. They started with children’s beds and only recently branched out with the web company ILoveMyPetBeds.com.
“The pet market it s a $90 billion a year market. It’s huge. People are downsizing on their children, upsizing on their pets. So we’re saying we’re going to try to hit that market and see what happens, and it’s been an interesting transition,” Samuel said.
The order for Spears’ pet bed came through a partner boutique with every detail done just right. But she’s not their first celebrity order.
“We’ve had some very good sales, some very important people, the Gambino family,” said Samuel.
With satin, bows, a personalized pillow, and even its own carrying case, a bed can cost more than a few bones — $400.
But with her mommy making millions, you can’t expect Britney Spears’ baby to ever have to woof it.
If you want to see how Spears’ yorkie likes her new bed, you can follow her on the dog’s own Twitter feed.
The company founders say they’re waiting until their kids grow up before they get any dogs of their own.

Miracles for Mia
We first met Mia Spargo at a beauty Pageant in Plano, Texas. This was a televised Toddlers & Tiaras event. We had donated a bed for the Supreme Ultimate 1st Prize. On the way to the stage, our Ultimate Princess Canopy Bed, was in full regal display. It was “eye candy” to these little contestants who instantly got a jolt of electricity upon feasting their eyes on what could become potentially theirs!
There was so much buzz in the air that day. The contestants couldn’t keep off the Princess bed. They were drawn to it as if by magic. Mia was one of those lovely contestants, full of hope, poise and determination.
That’s when we first met her. She wanted that bed and climbed on it as we snapped a picture. Mia didn’t win the bed that day. But her dreams weren’t dashed!
Then, one day we received a message that Mia, had been diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor! We were horrified. It was someone we knew, not just a pretty but distant little face on TV.
We couldn’t comprehend how Mia’s parents felt? One day, Mia’s an energetic, bubbly ball of fire ready to conquer the world and the next day she’s battling for her life.
We decided that if Mia’s battling for her life, then we needed to give her one of our Princess beds. We knew that she wanted one and if not now, when? Our desire for her is that she would have hope, that Mia could look forward to coming home to her Princess bed and rest.
Her nightmare is not over. Mia and her parents need your help. Her medical bill’s are mounting. Her parents struggle to constantly need to be there for her, as she goes through a plethora of cancer treatment. Mia’s parents have set up fundraising efforts to help assuage the cost. Please help if you can, with whatever you can, and make a donation today to Miracles for Mia.
