I was hesitant about purchasing this bed only because I have purchased other beds in the past and Poochie didn't quite take to them. Poochie is a "big" yorkshire terrier about 12 pounds and I noticed that he was having some difficulty going up steps and getting on top of our bed. We purchased one of those gelpedic beds for dogs with the low surround -- he rarely uses it (i use it more than him actually, it's quite comfortable to sit on...;-). I found West Paw Design's Tuckered Out bed to be something that could be right for the Poochman - easy to get in to, warm and comfy. I received the bed today and did a human test run and sat in it myself - very comfy and surprsingly firm. I thought it would be too soft or mushy, but the Tuckered Out bed has pretty good support (must be those plastic bottles). Poochie didn't take to it at first so I had to coax him into it a little. As soon as he sat down it in, and I kid you not, he stayed in that bed for a good two hour nap. As I write this, it's bedtime and he's back in the Tuckered Out bed apparently having some sweet dreams. Lucky rascal.
Will send some pics soon of Mr. Pooch having a snooz on the Tuckered Out bed soon. BTW, Poochie is a "big" yorkshire terrier. About 12 pounds. We ordered the Medium-sized Tuckered Out bed and he has plenty of space to curl up or stretch out as he pleases. Nice Blue color, too. West Paw Design: you done good.
