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?
