Best Dog Bed

There have been some great threads on things we can't live without for our Havs but one I would love to still hear about is the favorite dog bed. I need to go shopping and it would be great to find one Pepper will think is a perfect match for his little bod needs. So friends, what is it and where'd you find it?? (pictures a plus!)
Thanks so much,

I think like anything else, the best bed is one they will use. Now Milo wants no part of any bed but mine. The big girls (especially Cagney) love the flat, thick ones that go on the bottom of crates. Bailey on the other hand loves beds and these are two he's done really well with.

The first is the typical bed of this type, while the second has a removable cover for washing and came with a matching pillow and blanket.

Geri I really love that second bed, where did you get that one? Both Riley & Monte love beds, I have different beds in each room for them.

I have tried thousands, well not in the literal sense, but it sure feels like, and there is one bed that I just LOVE. However, it isn't available anymore so I keep the ones I have and hope they continue to last forever. They are soft and wash over and over and NEVER loose their shape.

I just purchased a new bed for my upcoming litter from Havanese Rescue's new online store. While I could have bought the same bed cheaper somewhere else, I decided to purchase it from HRI since the profit they make will go to a good cause. This bed looks not only wonderful, but it is guaranteed to not bunch up the stuffing and is completely machine washable. Please note, I am VERY picky about the beds I buy as they must be able to survive constant washing and bleaching. While I have not washed it yet as I just got it today, I love how it feels and the bolster is sooooo nice and strong, which is important for machine washing. Here is the bed I am referring too. This isn't the color I got, but it is the same bed just the same. Plus, you will be helping Havanese Rescue.

Mine don't use beds very often but they are allowed on the furniture so I have tons of doggy throws especially those faux fur ones- mine love them. I learned to not waste money on beds early on with Belle. Usually the cheaper the better and when they wear down, I can toss them. The monogrammed bed was donated after it was a toy box for along time and DH has reminded me of that ever since! Mine really tend to like the small really soft beds that are easy to lay in (now they have cat beds out too which are small as well) or they like the flat thin pillows (we got a soft red one from Ikea that they actually used). Here is one I bought on a cross country road trip for $5. If I would have known all of them would use it, I would have bought a bunch of them... go figure!

Cash likes a queen or king size sleigh bed...preferably with two humans in it to offer warmth.

I have the Bowsers Donut Dog Bed. I like the fabric (microvelvet) because hair doesn't stick to it and it's very durable. It comes in lots of different patterns.
