Oh, I know. My heart just melted into a puddle of goo at that. Especially when he took the raccoon toy to sleep with him! He just seemed in disbelief that someone would actually give him a toy

I think we went through 2 beds until he shed off all that thick stinky skin. I ended up buying one of those "Coolio" dog cots - easier to clean that thing and it didn't matter if it got wet.

Now, of course, he has a luxury bed inside. Which he has some competition for

Definitely! Lucky for us he's got a huge heart. (and a pretty good brain, too)

Where did you get the bed with the bolsters? That is exactly what we have been looking for. Also are the bolsters a bit firmer or are they soft and squishy?

Kdrees - That's an LLBean "Premium Dog Couch". In Large. Which is plenty Large. I think the XL would take up all the floor space in our living room!

The bolsters are pretty firm - they are stuffed with filling, not foam, but since you have to stuff them into the sleeve of the bed, that helps keep their form.

The outer denim cover is "'da Bomb" - easy to wash and holds up beautifully. The stuffing on the main part of the bed is rather thin, much to my disappointment. But Heinz loves it. I saved the foam "orthopedic mattress" from his previous cheapo PetSmart bed, and plan to swap that out when this one gets really flat.
