Well, as you can see, the bed is back upstairs. For those of you following along at home, this brings the score to Linda 1, Baldwins 0. Thanks for all the emails and suggestions. It's good to know I'm not alone in this. Apparently all of you have had this same pet bed struggle.
Jessica's two dogs, Rudy & Toby refuse to sleep in their respective, size-appropriate beds. Toby, the larger of the two, likes the small bed, so Rudy, the runt, gets to stretch out in the big bed.
And then there's Penny. Oh, Penny. April did the same thing I did - initially bought a cheap bed, assuming in the immediate future she'd switch to a nicer/better bed. But Penny wasn't having it, so now Penny's new $40 cat bed serves as a toy box while she snoozes in her old, tiny bed.
As the saying goes, the heart wants what it wants, albeit a two year old, smelly, filthy, cheap faux suede dog bed from Big Lots. Oh, Linda.....
