The Most Coveted Bed

Last Wednesday I posted a photo of Gretel hogging the dog bed. Now, that is not the only bed in the house. There are two others plus the couch. This just happens to be the favorite one.

I have this habit of getting one of everything even though I have two dogs. I guess it is usually fine because it only takes one dog to shun it or tear it up for me to tell that it was a waste of money. However, if they love it then I feel bad because one always looks sad when the other has it.

This bed falls into the latter category. They both love the bed. If Chester is sleeping in the bed, Gretel will walk up to him and stare at the bed. She will trick him out of it sometimes too.

Gretel will go into the kitchen and sit on her “I need to go out” rug and look at me. When I get up and walk into the kitchen Chester gets up and follows me. It’s usually to see if I am getting food rather than needing to go out but the point is that now he is out of the bed. As soon as he gets up, Gretel runs into the other room and climbs in the bed.

So what “special dust” does this bed have? This Bowser Buttercup Bed has a drawstring around the edge that allows you to cinch it up into a little “cup”. It creates the perfect little doxie nest. It’s also really soft.

Is there a favorite “spot” or bed at your house?

Some other things you might want to know about the bed:

  • It can be opened up to lie flat
  • The bed comes in two sizes. The “Large” is big enough only for a 15 lb Dachshund or so (Chester and Gretel are 12 and 10, respectively)
  • The bed is also good for cats
  • They come in three different fabrics: a recycled Eco-Fleece, synthetic lambswool and microfiber (we have the microfiber version).
  • They are not cheap….but can you put a price on your pet’s love :)

I decided this bed was something we needed two of so I got another one as a Christmas gift for Chester and Gretel. I consider it for both of them because now they will both have one to lay in and no one has to feel left out or trick each other to get into it.

    That is funny. When I lived in my house Tiki would have a antler that Lana wanted (it doesn’t seem to matter how many I have, they still fight over one). Tiki would lay in the hallway to gnaw on it, Lana would look at her, go through the kitchen into the living room then back into the hallway and smell her bum. That distracts Tiki and Lana comes in for the antler and runs away. Stubborn little ones, but so smart and clever when they want something.

    Woof! Woof! What a cute bed. Right now only got 1 bed. I used to have 3. We donated 2 to the MHS and soon the one I have. Mom plans to get me a new bed. Chester and Gretel are so lucky to have a new comfy bed. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

    That’s sounds like a great bed! It’s funny because ever since TeKeela was overgrown by her little bother and she is not longer the strongest, she will behave very similar to Gretel. They both will want the same thing even though there’s two of almost everything. She will show him another toy, invite him to play and trick us to let her out just to make him leave whatever he was doing. It’s funny that is the only plotter. He would just take whatever he wants as soon as she gets distracted, but will never fool her.

      Ha, ha! You are probably right. Gretel has already chewed a couple of holes in the first one so we might be back down to one soon enough anyway :(

    Looks like a nice bed! Eleanor is such s spoiled princess she will never sit or lie on the bare floor. She even has to eat on a rug! So she has a bed upstairs and down!

    I have two dogs with mix matched personalities. My medium sized Shepard mix, Penny, sees herself as a lap dog, and enjoys sleeping in my dauchsund mix, Pickles’s bed, while Pickles prefers Penny’s large bed and fancies himself a St. Bernard. He has a big personality and ego to match. They are both endlessly entertaining.
