Trudis writes about dog beds

A semi pampered mutt like me can expect a longer life span compared to my counterparts in the streets. I hope the Secretary will invest on my comfort as I sail through my golden years. Choosing the right dog bed is part of that investment. The dog's size, built and sleeping position are important things to consider.

After my sissy Scarlet got her very own bed, I have been trying to convince the Secretary a.k.a Mom that the rest of us need dog beds too. A semi pampered mutt like me can expect a longer life span compared to my counterparts in the streets. I hope the Secretary will invest on my comfort as I sail through my golden years. Choosing the right dog bed is part of that investment.

So how does our Secretary choose the right doggy bed--I mean, if and when she scrapes the budget for it?

Size and built of a dog are important factors. Dogs like my sissy Woody, who is umm kinda humungous big boned will most definitely need large dog beds Our health must also be considered, it will help if these dog beds are antibacterial and hypoallergenic. I also need to remind our Secretary that cheaper does not always mean better. Cheap dog beds may contain harmful chemicals that could be bad for humans too.

I saw dog beds in different shapes and designs in the internet. Some are flat like human beds, or shaped like donuts, or arm chairs. Im fond of curling up like a ball so a large donut shape bed will probably suit me. My brother Moymoy, on the other paw, catches zzzzs with his hind legs stretched out like there’s no tomorrow so a flat bed will be appropriate for him.

  4. I love my snuggle ball the best of all! Sometimes I do like to sleep with my legs stretched out straight, so sleep on the floor. It's nice to have lots of options. (Sleeping on the bed with Mom is no good since she moves around too much...I can't stand it!)

    Good luck choosing a bed. Some of them have covers you can remove to wash, so that would be a consideration too.

    PS: I like your new blog design!

  7. Hello Sweet Trudis,

    Aha! I was WONDERING how long it would be before you played the "But Mummy, SCARLET got a present...!" card! And you played it charmingly, my dear. Our beloved Secretary will never let you 'make do' with an inferior bed; I've no doubt.

    I used to have a beanbag, which was inherited from my predecessor (just getting to that bit in my 'Evolution' series, actually!), but it started to get holes in after a while. Now that my partner and I haved moved into our own little house, we have an agreement: I get the furniture and my partner has to sit on the floor. I think she prefers it that way...

    My IDEAL bed is two or three pillows (or cushions, I'm not fussy) and a big blanket. Then I can arrange and rearrange them as I like, to suit my mood. Happy days!

    Love to all our friends in the Philippines.
