So we have been thinking about getting a thick foam cushion for Scout's crate. He is a big dog and prone to orthopedic issues so we thought having some more cushion would be a good idea. We went to a fabric store to see about getting something we could cut to size. We were quite surprised at the high cost and thought it was a little ridiculous. We were right next to Petco so decided to see what they had to offer. Turns out there are actual orthopedic dog beds. These were pretty nice, with a removable fleece cover. But more expensive!! We decided to go ahead and get it, even though it was more than what we were just complaining about. I had planned to do a little internet searching once we got home to see if I could find something comparable, but cheaper, and then return the one we had already bought. But as soon as we got home and tried it out in his crate, there was no turning back. He walked in, sniffed it, and immediately layed down. This was strange since he usually only goes in there when we leave, and never does he go in just for a nap. But for the rest of the day, he slept in there. He'd come out every few hours to check in, and then would turn around and go back in. Too funny, and cute. Check him out on his new bed!
