Our house is scattered with several cushy places for the dogs to lay. A sunny spot by the window, a cozy bed in front of tv, and of course, the big chair by the window that Knox believes belongs to him, among other places. But something about Knox’s first, cheap, old bed, draws these fosters like moths to a flame.
The other day Ms. Lola was in her crate, whining a bit. We make it a point not to let her (or any of our fosters) our of the crate till they learn to settle down on their own. As soon as she settled down, I unlatched her. Do you want to know the first thing she did? Jumped out of her crate, sprinted across the dining room, and right into Knox’s crate.
This girl was on a mission. To take a nap. In Knox’s crate.
“leave me alone and let me nap on this big ol’ stinky bed in peace” Lola Bunny. Direct quote.
What I can’t wrap my head around is that this bed is old as dirt (ok, only as old as we’ve had Knox, so about 18 months). But he sleeps on it every day (for 8+ hours), its been through hell (I won’t go into details) when he’s had stomach issues, and it’s just OLD.
Here’s Lola’s Doppelgänger, our first long-term foster, Jenny.
Any ideas as WHY this stinky bed is the hit of the house?
PS- disclaimer, we wash it often…but I’m not convinced all the ‘dog’ is out of it after a good wash. Share your thoughts?
And PPS- isn’t the resemblance between Lola and Jenny uncanny?!
