Our "New" Beds

You've probably noticed in lots of posts from the past that we have fabulous Orvis watershed dawg beds.  These beds can stay outside in the rain, and the water just runs right through them.  They have to be one of the best inventions known to canines (and dawg moms too).  Mommy isn't sure how old the large bed is since it was Hunter's, but it's been around for a while and has had two previous covers.  When Dixie joined the family, she received a smaller bed (technically the medium size) and so did I two years later.  These beds have withstood several blizzards and countless rainstorms.  They've even been frozen to the deck at our previous house.  In the interest of full disclosure, they did come inside for two hurricanes.

Unfortunately, the wind where we live now has taken a toll on the covers.  Mommy first noticed a hole in the large bed cover back in the fall.  She fully intended to patch it up, but just never got around to it.  By the time spring rolled around, there were several holes in both bed covers.  To be honest, she probably could not have sewn the holes up since the fabric was shredding.  Mommy decided the best and easiest (but certainly not cheapest) option was to just order new covers.

Mommy wasn't thrilled with the cover options available at this time, but we had to have them!  There were three choices this year: a red and orange stripe, a white tropical print, and a blue stripe.  We tend to decorate with blue when given a choice, but not necessarily these shades of blue!

I'm looking good in my supermodel pose, aren't I??

Dixie's tennis balls even match the new cover.  That makes Mommy a tiny bit happier with this bright blue since she's a matchy-matchy person!

If you haven't tried these beds out and you spend a lot of time in the sun like we do, you should give them a chance!
