In another thread, I mentioned that Cody's bed serves several purposes:
1. Something soft to lay on only while crated.
2. Something to defluff while he's bored and waiting for me to come home.
3. A toy to toss around, defluff, and play with when he's not crated.
Obviously, Cody's dog bed is not really for sleeping. Why should it be when he has a queen sized human bed to sleep in, with me teetering off the edge most nights?
After buying numerous dog beds, I finally started restuffing them and sewing them back together. (BTW my sewing skills are horrible, but getting better now that over the past year and a half I have had to patch up beds, harnesses, jeans, jackets, sheets… you get the picture. It's not pretty, but it works!)
True to form, last night, Cody got bored with his toys and pulled out the franken-bed for a good thrashing/defluffing session.
On the top, you can see where it's been sewn back together a few times, but it's definitely in need of some repair after last night's antics:
This was from last year, I had left the room for just a few minutes, and found a trail of fluff leading from his crate in the living room out into the back yard.
