I know!! It's unbelievable.

I found a dog bed on sale at the local pet store and persauded my sister to buy it

Our dogs just usually have folded blankets in crates and they sleep on the sofa and my bed.

I've been looking for a baby mattress on craigslists. Someone suggested that here and I like that idea!

Costco beds are terrific, really durable and affordable enough to replace every year or so. I can't see myself spending any more than $30 or $40 on a pillow to put on the ground for my dog.

I understand the need for a dog bed though. I don't want my dog on my bed unless she is still and sleeping. When she jumps on the bed it's usually to flail around and deposit fur on every inch of my pillow.

I hear ya RD. My wee ones only get on my bed when I lift them night time. They're too small to jump that high. They can jump off, but not on. Then they just sleep, no horse play. It's bad enough with what hair they do deposit. LOL.

Yeah, my Chihuahuas don't really have a bed. They share mine and use the couch the rest of the time. If I ever get another big dog, I will have a dog bed for him/her though.

There isn't enough room for us on our bed with three filas, so mine were banished to the floor area. I wash the beds constantly because of drool from the boys, so I changed them to childrens sleeping bags. Easy to wash, and pretty comfy on an egg crate.

That is what I am doing today, searching for new sleeping bags for the monsters.

Walmart! Thats where we got Connors last year and its held up WELL even with the dogs using it as a bed.

We do costco here for the boys. Upholstry fabric with a sheepskiny thing on one side cedar chips and removable covers. 20 something bucks and both boys ca sleep on it.

You guys have some pretty good ideas for dog beds. For the small dogs I find an old bed pillow works well, as long as I make a denim pillow case so the chewers don't tear into it! For the dogs that aren't reliably housebroken I use old bathtowels folded up to fit their crates.

The dogs here don't get on the furniture and only Blaze and Jake sleep on beds (by choice). We are using an old comforter right now plus the other dog bed that I got on sale. This dog bed would also be in the family room, so I'd like it to look atleast half way decent. Lol

One dog bed for atleast 2 dogs doesn't work very well, haha.
