Molly's new bed
Molly's new bed arrived today from LL Bean. I began noticing signs that maybe my nine-year-old Lab is having joint problems. She sleeps on the carpeted floor by my bed. Often I will wake up and find my robe, which was at the foot of my bed when I went to sleep, is now on the floor turned into a makeshift bed. My daughter-in-law agreed that maybe I should get her a decent bed.
So, according to LL Bean's charts, for Molly's weight, she needed the large size and that is what I ordered. When I opened the box this afternoon and unfolded the bed, it kept getting bigger and bigger! This thing would easily accomodate two Labrador Retrievers!
I put the outer cover on it and then put it on the living room floor. . . Molly was scared of it! She would walk up to it, sniff at it and walk away. "Listen, dammit, I paid a LOT of money for your comfort and you are going to like this bed, do you understand?"
Once I forced her onto it, she decided maybe this was a good thing!
