Dog Crate Beds

Dog crate beds come in different sizes, shapes and make. Based on the size of the crate, you get a slightly smaller bed so it will fit well. Many dogs spend a long time there, so it is best to make them comfortable. Kate, my daughter’s Morkie is a lot of fun. In the mornings when she sees her human parents getting dressed for work, she tries to hide, but gets caught. She sleeps in the crate bed till noon, and then she has 1 hour with her dad and back into the crate she goes, until one parent or the other comes home. I thought she dreaded going in there, so I was given the opportunity to keep her at my place. All week she was free, and would lie very close to me. She moves when I move or else she is asleep on the couch. Saturday morning came and I showered and got ready for church and came down with my bible and handbag. As soon as Kate saw me all dressed up, she quietly went into the powder room where her crate was. I thought it was so cute, watching her back into the crate. I always hated putting her in there, but she is comfortable in there and feels safe, until one of us gets her out. She is ready to go out when we pick her, so we get her leash and go out the door for a little walk for her to do her business.

Lately, she goes into her crate when she knows it is time for her human parents to go to work.  Sometimes when they are ready to go to work, they have to look for her, and they have discovered that she just goes into her crate is sound asleep in her leopard design crate bed.  Sometimes she drags one of their clothing into the crate with her.  She is just so adorable. You dog will love you for thinking of their comfort by getting them a soft dog bed

Soft fleece dog beds

How much do we love the dog we bring home. The very first day you see how much this little bundle of joy makes you happy and you want the very best for him or her. One of the first things you get is a dog bed, and it is not just any dog bed, but the cutest and most comfortable dog bed of all available. How about showing your love with a comfortable fleece dog bed, or a cradle dog bed? They come in pink or blue and are so soft that your dog will be happy to sink into the softness and comfort. Boy dogs would probably want a blue fleece dog bed as apposed to a girl with a pink dog bed. Do these cute puppies care what color it is? Not at all. All they care about is the softness and comfort as they go to la la land.

Happy 4th of July

Tomorrow is the 4th of July and that seems to be what the day is called.  Isn’t that kind of redundant?  Should it not be called “Independence day”?  There was a great story of Independence today.  Several Americans were rescued in a daring rescue mission by the Columbian military.  These men were kept in the jungles for 5 years with no interaction, reading material and worst of all was the families did not know whether they were dead or alive.  It was indeed ‘Independence day’ for them and their families.

Many people will be dressing in red, white and blue tomorrow, and their pets will be wearing patriotic colors too.  They will be wearing patriotic dog collarsstylish dog clothes, and bandanas.

Of course we love our pets so much that we dress them up so they will look their very best.  We look for the most luxurious or unique dog collars, clothes or beds for them.

I just want to wish everyone a happy ‘Independence day’!

Dog beds vs your bed

Does your dog like to sleep on his own dog bed or in your bed? My niece called me yesterday from California and said that when she picked up her dog, she also went and got her a dog bed. However, the dog likes to sleep in her bed, and usually on her pillow. If that is going to be a problem, then you should never allow your dog in your bed in the first place. Once you make a concession, you have lost the battle. There are all kinds of beautiful and useful dog beds available. To have you dog sleep in their bed, you must have them sleep there from the very first day. If they come to your bed, you just have to put them back in their dog beds. Once you let your dog in your bed, you can just about forget about your pillow, because the small dogs like to sleep right near your head.

Recently I wrote about the dogs that were let loose in the National Forest by the Mayor of a town in east Arkansas. Unfortunately, those dogs did not have choice of dog beds they could sleep in. However, after the story broke loose, there have been people who have volunteered to take the dogs in. They were unable to find food for themselves while in the forest and looked a bit thin, but they will be alright. They are now clean and happy in some nice person’s home. Now maybe, they will get to sleep on a pretty dog bed, or at least a soft dog bed, as apposed to having to find a place in the forest. The Mayor is in the dog house now. He could face charges because it is illegal to set animals loose into a National forest.

So the choices we make for our dogs, matter greatly. If we do not spay or neuter our pets, there may be some pets that do not have a home. It is also not right for us to adopt a dog or cat, and then let them run loose in the city. If we want a pet, we must be prepared to provide a good home for them. That includes a good dog bed, dog food and especially water. The temperatures are high now and our dogs will get hot. If you do not keep them cool and provide enough water for them, they will have heat exhaustion just like we do. We must also remember that a dog’s body temperature is already higher than ours. There are cooling mats available for dogs that cannot be in a cool place.

Raised dog beds

I was just thinking about all the flooding we have had recently. I noticed that many people lost their homes and everything they had to the floods. However, there were a few lucky people who did not. Why? Because they had raised houses. Some of the houses were built on stilts and it was a blessing because it protected their homes. All around them was water, in fact people brought them groceries by boat, but they were dry. Just as a raised house saved them from floods, a raised dog bed protects the dogs from whatever is on the floor. Yes, even when it rains, the raised dog bed will not get all soggy and wet. In fact the raised dog bed helps the dog stay cool on hot days, because air can circulate under them. A raised dog bed can be placed anywhere and still be comfortable for the dog. Raised dog beds can be placed on cement, hard floors or even in the grass, and your pet stays comfortable no matter what the surface of the floor is like. There was one lady who said that she hated the steps up to her home, until now, when those steps up saved their home from the floods.

Doggie birthday party

Last August Kate turned 2, and she was with me for her birthday. I thought it would be fun to have a little party for her. I decided to invite one little girl who was fond of Kate. It just so happened that it was prayer meeting night, and when I invited one person the others heard and so I ended up having every one over for cake. I made two party hats, one for Kate and one for her little friend. Her mom and dad had bought a very pretty designer dog apparel for her, but it stayed with them, so she did not get to wear her birthday designer dog clothes that day. However, it was fun all around. We even sang happy birthday by bow wowing the music to her. She was all excited because she loves company, and did not know who she liked best, so she was greeting everyone. At the end of the evening she was one pooped out pup. When she is ready for bed, she chooses a soft luxury dog bed covered in silk and starts fluffing it up and scratching on it to make her fancy dog bed ready for her to sleep in.

Memory foam dog bed

What is a memory foam dog bed? Memory foam was invented by NASA in the 1970’s, but was never used in any space missions. By the 1990’s memory foam mattresses were being sold to consumers. Soon people realized that this was very helpful when they have arthritis. Well dogs get arthritis too, and so was created the memory foam dog bed. The memory foam conforms to the shape, weight and temperature of the dog and gives them a good alignment of the spine. It also supports the painful joints. Veterinarians offer other treatments for the aging arthritic dog, but they also recommend a memory foam bed to ease their pain.

However, not only aging arthritic dogs could benefit from a memory foam dog bed. Based on the size and weight of the dog, a thick memory foam dog bed that conforms to his body, but returns to its original state when he is off it, can be useful. Other dogs, whether they are younger, smaller or more energetic would love the cozy comfort the memory foam dog bed offers. Memory foam dog beds come in different shapes and colors. Some are oval and some are rectangular and flat. It is important to take the thickness of the memory foam dog bed into consideration when you purchase one for your pet. The bigger the dog, the thicker the memory foam should be.
