New Bed and words of support for Judi.

LP ,  " I was recently looking around the house and I suddenly realized there were numerous cat beds scattered everywhere but the dogs didn't have a single bed of their own , let alone numerous beds to choose from ! This admittedly , largely has to do with the fact that we allow the dogs on the couch which is where they prefer to sleep. I noticed that Duffy often slept under a hallway table though so I thought I could put a bed under there for them. Saturday I went to our neighbourhood pet store looking for a dog bed . I found and bought a bed that appeared to be comfortable enough for the two of them to sleep in together if they so chose . Here is how it was received.

Levon, " A new bed for me and Malou ! And it is nice and spacious too. It has plenty of growing room for us ."

Levon , " Fooey. Here comes Esme. And she is being pretend polite while waiting nicely for a turn to try out the new bed ."

Levon , " I'd better get out and give her a turn or she'll get impatient and whap me. Whap. Whap. Whap . She is nutty as a bag of nuts that way . Malou and I call her , Nutty Whapper. As in , "Here comes The Nutty Whapper. But not in front of her of course."

Esme , " Sniff . Sniff . Young whipper snappers smell like an old wet dog ! Ugh."

Esme , " I'll just stay on this side . It's fresher ."

Esme , " There is plenty of room for me to stretch out . I love my new Queen size bed  ! So thoughtful of LP. "

Later . . .

Malou , " Coolio. A new bed for me and Levon . "

Malou , " Hey , Little Prince.Wake up. Do you like our new deluxe bed ? "

Malou , " You are so right! Lots of leg room ! "

And later still . . .

Levon , " Yup. This luxury ship is purrfect for my daily grooming sessions ."

Levon , " How nice. Just me and my yacht ."

And even later still . . .

Mitalee  , "  Mine . "

LP, " Oh well. I tried!! "

  2. Dogs don't need beds but cats most definitely need several each. Hannah has a really big bed and Mum has to sleep with one foot on the floor!! We have posted our hat pictures again today - it was great to look posh for a change!
