That bed does look comfortable! If you don't have a ramp, you ought to get one for easy loading, unloading! I have a Dr. Foster and Smith dura ruff indoor ramp, it comes in two pieces and I use the slanted bottom piece to load moo in and out of the car all the time, it's a heavy duty styrofoam with canvas and a non-slip cover, very light weight but sturdy. I've had it 3 years and it's in great shape. I leave it by my bed otherwise. Looks like kohls has it when you google it, another company has the slanted style, "royal ramps". They're a little pricey, mine was like $150, but is so much easier on my senior dog and me! I've also wondered about using a styrofoam archery target they have at Walmart, around $15, would need something non-slip on top, to step up in a car, suv would need something higher though I guess. Good travels!
