And he managed to chew it up. Being that it lasted as long as it did, I would consider it to be a pretty good dog bed. He did not chew it up while he was locked in the crate, which is what I was most worried about so I think that the next step would be to just make the case tighter, as this one was too long for the crate.

Update: The bed is still intact! I think that the bed is lasting this long is partially due to the fact that because the material that it is made out of now (canvas) is stronger than the previous material, it is taking longer to break through and tear it if the dog starts chewing on it and it gives us a chance to stop him from chewing on it if we catch him. The downfall to this though, it that the dog is getting older and we are constantly working with him to train him to stop chewing on everything unless we say he can or give him the item to chew on so he may just be growing out of his puppy and chewing stage at this point.
