BIG Dogs Prefer Itty Bitty Beds
Size doesn't matter (except when it comes to treats)
Is there anything funnier than a big dog flopping out of a tiny bed?

A friend shared this hilarious photo of a small Terrier and giant Wolfhound trading spaces. Why do some big dogs prefer to sleep in smaller spaces? My theory: It's an assured attention-getter. Anytime our Dalmatian, Jolie, curls up in a tiny cat bed, my husband and I have to point it out to each other. "Oh, isn't she cute?" "Look at that silly monkey!" Then we pet her nd coo over her until one of us decides what she really needs is a treat, preferably large. Does your big dog prefer a bed that's too small?

Up side down in the recliner works just great for my big loveable lab.

My boxer girl always claimed her brother kitty's bed which was 3x smaller than her's! She would fold herself into the bed and actually managed to squeeze every part in the bed including her nose!!

I too have three very large dogs who love the smaller pet bed. AND, we always chuckle and comment AND take pics when one of them in curled up. THEY definitely have OUR numbers!!!!!!!
