Perfect dog bed

I love to check out dog beds but dislike the ridiculous price tags especially for puppies who still soil/chew/throw up on their beds.. Yes I am sqeamish and will not throw yucky beds in my washing machine!

So where to find cheap cute beds??? Well I was in my favorite dollar store and found them cleverly disguised as chair cushions!! Yup they come in all patterns, colors, shapes and even fluffiness. So i picked up a couple to try and I am in love. The little ties in the back are perfect for fastening to an expen so my tazmanian devil can not drag it everywhere!! LOL

Best of all for $3 I can replace whenever they get too gross for me. Even my hubby is happy with the price tag of my new obsession LOL I may have bought 3-4 of them (OK 8 of them but it's still cheaper than designer dog bed!!!!

Very cleaver idea!!! Looks like your cute little devil likes it, maybe he'll start to like the idea of the bed in one place. My older dog likes to drag his bed across the floor and steal the others dogs beds too, so maybe your heading that kind of activity off.

What a terrific idea. Good thing you laid in a supply, before there was a run on them.

Neat idea! They love pillow type cushions

And easy to wash, too. Can't beat that!

ha ha ha awesome! I never thought to post about it, but Tillie claimed a chair cushion that was on the floor a LONG time ago... it actually stays under the kitchen table and is where she lays when I am cooking, or the kids are doing homework, or we are eating... LOL never even thought to share this info for some reason.
Yes, they DO make great little beds... as long as your hav is on the small side! I can see how it could be too small for some of the bigger havs.

Yes I did go a little overboard but there were so many nice ones I couldn't decide LOL A girl has to look good even when sleeping

I knew someone had to have thought of this too and frankly I'm kind of upset that you didn't share Tillie's secret with us!!

My dollar store had patio bench cushions too so those are perfect for my bigger hav even though when she curls up its amazing how little room she takes up and as long as it's near me I'm sure she'd fit herself on a Kleenex!!!!!!
