Never Enough Beds

Although Maisie has a seemingly endless supply of places to sleep, unsurprisingly I'm always concerned about providing her with the maximum level of comfort at all times.  Downstairs, she has the big chair, couch and overstuffed dog bed, as well as the staircase itself.  A few weeks ago, I bought a new dog bed for the dining room on the second floor, so she has a soft place to rest near me while I'm on the computer.

Upstairs on the top floor, she of course has MY bed.

I also placed her older dog bed in the bedroom.  She used it once in a while, but not very often.

Lately, I noticed she was actually spending most of her time on the memory foam mat in the bathroom.

So I started thinking that maybe the old bed (which didn't have much filling) wasn't enough padding for her compact "I play rough at daycare five times a week" body.  I thought, "she needs more, better, newer!"  That led to the purchase of an expensive memory foam dog bed to replace the not up to Maisie's standards one.

In addition to the extreme cushiness, Maisie also likes the fact that she doesn't need to fully leave the bed in order to enjoy a refreshing beverage!

Not wanting to throw away the old bed, I put it in the guest room...where I now find Maisie all the time.  *sigh*

Such a fickle little pickle, my Maisie!

Maybe Lucy Lou called Maisie to tell her about the joys of the bath mat?

I wish Izzy would lay in her bed! She has a nice cushy one in the living room, but she's passed out on the kitchen floor right now.

Billy mostly just takes over the human furniture, but I'm in the process of making him a bed of his own. The only problem is, I keep changing my mind about the fabric for the cover...

I haven't done my taxes yet but I'm presuming that I'll get a refund. I was just thinking today that I would like to use some of it on my chi's but I didn't necessarily want to buy them more toys since they already have so many. A new bed (or two!) would be good!

This post so much more than cracked me up. Maisie is the luckiest pooch ever!

My mom kind of has a "thing" for buying us comfy beds to lay around in. (Dad calls it a sickness but whatevs.) And it IS kinda fun watching mom try to figure out what kinda bed we would like the best. Just like Maisie, we likes to keep her guessing. Heehee!
