Fred loves his bed



The redhead wanted to buy Fred a nice bed, so he could lounge near us in peaceful repose after dinner.

"I think it's too early". I'd respond. "He'll just tear holes in it".

That was a couple months ago, but now he has calmed down a bit, and responds better to commands.

So we bought the big soft dog bed at Costco.

It was love at first sight. The bed arouses all kinds of adolescent dog passions.

He bites and pulls it around, rolls on it, and as you can see -- he really loves it.



It stirs up such excitement, we limit his play dates to about 10 minutes max.

We have a 2 year old 'Fred' and so it's fun for us to see your pup grow up too. You will be glad to know that he will eventually use his bed to actually sleep on.

Found your blog by accident, and noticed Phil is one of your followers. Small blog world, isn't it? Timely find, too. I saw some odd scat out and about this last week, and thanks to you I now know it was puma scat. I wonder if I should be thrilled, or worried. :) Love your blog.

Well, you'll hearing more about Fred, and thanks for the comments. I like your blog, Kirby, and am glad the pics of cat poo were helpful.

Getting a good Dog Bed is one of the most important things you can do for your dog.
