The Best Gift I Bought for My Dog was her Bed :)

Updated on October 23, 2013

I don't feel comfy lying on the hard floor!! So why do we let our pets?

We all love our pets dearly don't we? I know I do! Sure, they have those lovely coats but that's not enough to comfort their bodies between them and the floor all the time.

I had always noticed how they try to find a throw rug, or even a dropped towel or piece of clothing one of the kids dropped next to the bed, I'm sure you pet lovers know what I mean, right?? They want to lay on something, so a bed is the perfect gift.

When I first bought my Sammy a bed, she didn't really like it at first, but she came around after awhile and now she really enjoys laying on it. I actually went and got her others for the other places she lays around the house!

Sammy is a Black Lab and she isn't a very large dog, but she has a large size bed. She gets very comfy on her bed. She always goes for her bed before anywhere else to lie.

Even a large dog can use a bed that is not huge. They usually like to curl up and get all tightly coiled up anyway when they lay down. So if it isn't in your budget for your large breed dog, consider a medium size bed for them.

I would definitely recommend anyone who asks to buy their dog a pet bed for a gift if they don't have one. They will love it!

Window Seat

We have a window seat in the front of the house and my dogs always loved to lay & peek out the window. It finally hit me one day that I should put the dog bed right up on the window seat for them, and that's where Sammy lays now most of the day. I really don't mind it at all. I have special cushions for the seat and when company comes I just take her bed away and put the cushions back!

      Sammy looks so sweet with her little pink tongue in that photo. My boy, Toby, needs a new bed. I'm thinking of making him one since he is so big (and a bit hard on anything I buy him). He tends to pull the stuffing out. Like your dogs, Toby has his favorite window location. I keep a soft sleeping bag there for him to use while keeping an eye out for anything worthy of a bark fest.

      I have six dogs..two are outside and they have cool little tents which they love. My inside dogs all have their own beds and absolutely love them. ;) They get so excited when I bring home a new one. Too cute. Love your dog pics!
