And then I saw it: The Therapeutic Bolster Bed. It's designed to give an older dog comfort with memory foam that promotes circulation and cushions joints while preventing discomfort associated with uneven support. It helps reduce the effect of pressure points and eases joint discomfort. (Confession: that description was lifted from the catalog from memory; there are a few mental edits.) The bolster provides a feeling of security when the dog sleeps. I ordered the Large.
When the new bed arrived, I was taken back by how very large the Large really was. It's large, like a new piece of furniture large -- it has that kind of presence in the room. I set it out for Cheyenne, patted my hand on it and told her that it was hers, all hers. For her comfort and security.
There was one problem though:
Yeah, Cheyenne didn't take to resting on the new
She has, however, taken to it like the new dining table that she thinks it is.
p.s. As I write this, she's comfortable and sound asleep. Beside me on the couch.
