    Thank you for putting the bonding bit! I've had so many people think an older dog "won't bond to a new person." On the contrary, they're old enough to know they were rescued, and be even more devoted as a result.

    Thank you Wychic, your answer makes a lot of sense. Our mattress has a bowl shaped hole on the underside from when our dog was a pup. Maybe she was trying to carve out her own bed on our bed...
