Dogs are great companions. They come in all shapes and sizes, and all, like their owners, have different personalities and different preferences. There’s never a dull moment. But one thing they all have in common is the fact that they just love going for walkies. Be it just a short stroll around the corner or a ten-mile hike, they’ll love it. Just mention the right word and their tongues are hanging out, their tails are wagging, and if they’re anything like my dog, they’ll be hopping round in circles chasing their own tail with excitement. To them nothing beats going for a walk.
Being able to look out a window on each side of the house is critical. Having a foot rest, like a window sill or radiator, earns you points as a spoiler since you are contributing to your dog’s success at spying squirrels.
As we lay together in bed one last lazy Sunday morning, I etched in my mind forever the image of you and Brother, now snoozing back-to-back and head-to-head. Your two black coats melded together creating the illusion of one animal. I appreciated that you two could share this physical connection one more time. I’ll always remember and treasure this Sunday morning picture.
Removable bed covers are a great idea for those that have very active dogs that are out of doors a lot. These covers will most likely need to be washed frequently as your dog will transfer accumulated dirt from outside onto the bed. It is much easier to wash a removable cover then an entire bed.
Firstly, keeping your dog comfortable especially when they spend time outdoors. These beds are designed to stand up in rain or cold. The cot portion of these beds is elevated so the dog is not lying on the damp or cold ground. The dog can stretch out and nap in comfort. Most owners buy a raised Luksus hundeseng specifically for use outside.
Respecting your wishes was important to me. It was your life, after all. I thought back on the “practice sessions” of the past few months. You had gotten very sick several times, which made me think about our pact to say goodbye when the time was right. Then you would get better. I remembered that the last element of our pact was to give ourselves permission to change the plan if necessary. I was glad I was wrong those times, but thank you for the rehearsals. You were very wise to recognize I needed this practice.
O.K., I understand your objection that you already have a bed that your dog sleeps on indoors so why shouldn’t you just take that one outside. That is understandable, but still the fabric used for these beds are woven in a fashion that rain and dust will just slip through the fabric. Since most indoor beds have foam inserts these are not practical for outdoor use.
As our pets age, we need to address the issues that affect the same stage of human life. There is joint pain, muscle aches and other minor maladies that will affect both dogs and owners. It is worth considering if your dog falls into one of these categories. Check reviews and prices to see which ones will give you the quality you desire at a price you can afford. These beds are readily available on many websites and also available at some of the larger pet stores.
