That looks nice :D Though you do realise he might just have liked it because of the smell of the last dog to try it out? :wink: :lol:
Oh no I didn't think of that , I hope he actually finds them comfy as there very expensive :roll: :?

£240 each! My word! I think £30 is our limit, and recycled duvets are free! :lol:
I know I took a deep breath before buying them but he's worth it , if he uses them :D

I hoping the fact he got that cosy that he didn't want to get up is a good sighn :)

I think I'd have bought one and saw how he got on with it and whether the filling seemed to hold up well before buying the second. I did spend a lot on our two Orvis beds which were expensive - but nearly four years later they're still as good as new so I haven't regretted it. Of course, Jasper hasn't got as much padding as some dog so needs his comfort... even if he does sleep with his bum on the bed and head & shoulders on the floor :roll:

Bax disembowled his first bed immediatly and i havent gotten him one since :roll:

but i like him up on the couch and hes never shown any inclination to sleep down low even if theres piles of blankets on the floor.

EDIT: it also helps that hes pocket sized so he doesnt take up much room and doesnt object strongly to being asked to budge if we're pressed for space

The beds have arrived and Sampson has been using the one in the sofa :D he's not used the others yet... But he isn't bothered by the sofa now as he loves his bed. :D
