The Dog Beds

The left side of a thick-coated, tan with white dog that is laying in a green dog bed.

We used to have dog beds for our dogs some years back before Spike was born, but our cat thought they were litter boxes. Need I say more...?

We still have the naughty cat, but I decided to give the dog beds another try. So I ordered two new beds.

A perk-eared, tan with white dog is sleeping in a circle in a gree dog bed.

As soon as 13-year-old Puppy saw the dog beds he was excited and immediately laid down for a nap. Snuggled right in! But Spike...

...Spike did not know what they were...

Spike had a box to sleep in at one point, and a rug, but what were these things?

A tan with white dog is laying down in a green dog bed and standing overtop of him is Spike the Bulldog, his mouth is open and its tongue is sticking out.

What ya doing, Puppy?

Spike the Bulldog is standing on a rug, he is looking up and his head is tilted to the left. Behind him a tan with white dog is sleeping in a blue dog bed.

You want me to do WHAT?

In an attempt to show Spike what the beds were, I repeatedly patted the bed, pulling him in it, telling him to stay, saying gently it was his new bed.

Spike the Bulldog is sitting on a dog bed and he is looking forward with a grumpy look on his face.

Stay...

Once I even got him to lie down!

But it never lasted for long...

"Spike, it's a DOG BED!"

Update: Later that night...

Spike is lying down in his new dog bed more. He is starting to realize that the bed is not an off-limits piece of furniture, but something for him to relax in. :)
