Adi got a bed.
« on: September 02, 2006, 11:16:24 am »
Well, I've been really caving in and letting Adi sleep out of his crate at night, so long as it's next to my bed. He'll usually sleep there for half the night and in the crate the other half after a early-morning piss. However, it's been really getting to me how he just THROWS his body down onto the hardwood floors! Poor little bones. So I caved and bought him a bed that was overpriced, but I was too lazy to make one myself! It wasn't that bad I suppose, but come on, $35 for covered foam?

Here he is after a romp at the dog park. I coaxed him to get on it and pose. Now he is sleeping soundly. And yes, ignore the god-awful cheapy towel. It serves it's purpose!





Oh, and yeah, I bought the largest one since he has plenty of growing left to do.

He looks as if to say "Ho hum, hear we are again, taking pics, boorrring."  Love his facial expression.  Nice bed, looks comfy.

Man did I get pipped when I got the same covered foam that you bought! And it was smaller than the one you have!. They didn't have any bigger ones. Anyway I paid $55.00! Cute picture by the way!  ;D

My ex-bf ordered dogs beds for my dogs from Orvis last week. They came in on Friday. It cost him $200 w/ shipping ($105 for Riley's bed alone-well, the bed and $5 for his name to be sewn on it). They are the ones with beads in them. Sadie likes hers, though it's still so hot down here that they spend a lot of time laying on the tile. I couldn't believe he did that for them (and me); he's a good guy, though. :)

sheesh, those are some swanky beds (i googled them). fit for a king. I hear you about the tile. My labs in Miami loved to chill in the bathroom to cool off.

I know what you mean about that sound when they throw themselves on the bare floor. When my dane does it, it sounds like the house is coming down around your ears and is generally follows by a pitiful sigh/moan. Mine have a bed in every room other than the kitchen and bathroom but you can usually find them on the couch and/or reciner anyway.You can have the best seat in the house, you just have to move a dog first, LOL

With all the worrying we do about their joints and hard floors, you'd think they could use the beds! LOL!

The orvis beds are awesome, but they are still climbing in bed with me at night. I've been getting them to lay on them right before we got to bed, but as soon as the lights go out and I get in bed, I hear Riley get up, then Sadie, and they jump into bed with me. They are good about getting out of bed if I move around or if someone else is there, too (no room for them). So I guess I'll have to wait until I'm sharing my bed with a guy again to see how well they work...  ::)

At least someone is using one of the beds.

Haha, Thomas is a mac daddy. I love him... I have yet to see if my cats have tested out the new cushions. They prefer laying in the bathtub, the windowsil, and the top of the couch (where there are now permanent indentations from them... after just one month!)
