Cozy Cushion Dog Bed Medium 28" x 40" Color: Peppered Paws Forest
Thinking About Buying Another
I have an American Bull dog, these dogs do not have an undercoat, so basically no way to keep themselves warm. Since I work in a basement office (no heat) and there's no one home during the day, the heat is turned down upstairs. I have a heater under my desk. The first winter I saw her shiver. Since I won't do electric for her, I found this.
I have a sofa in my office and since I'm the only home during the day, she is with me 90% of the time. After trying several different things, which were all nuisances, I bought one of these and threw it on the sofa. She wasn't sure of the crinkly sound, but since I told her it was okay, she laid down on it.
Now, this dog has a Barbie fold-out sofa/bed in my daughter's bedroom. (I came here looking for an additional for that bed.) So where does she sleep at night in the winter? On her blanket in my office. The cats also love it, but they don't tend to like being laid on by her if they take their half out of the middle. She will share, however.
Basically, she's got half a sofa with this blanket and half without. In the colder months she is always on 'her' side. She sleeps on it, at night, which means it must do something to keep her warm. She has free roam of the house. I was alittle 'skeptical' of washing it the first time, but threw it in anyway and crossed my fingers. It came out well, and in each consecutive washing. I believe I might remember some 'fuzz' but only on the first washing, which was with towels and sheets for like covering the sofa she sleeps on. I've had it for 2 years or so.
The other day, a friend was over, sitting on it on the sofa. She commented that the sofa was kind of warm.
So basically to sum all that up - pros, it's light, easy to wash, dog loves it, cat's love it, it's lasted for 2-3 years of pretty much constant use.
Cons - (it's not a real con) if you look at the picture, obviously this is not 'a bed', there is no cushioning.

My dog loves it!
I highly recommend this dog bed!! I'm using it in a kennel with a litter of 7 puppies and there's nothing cuter than that pile of puppies curled up on this blanket, toasty warm. Mom loves it, too. I think I'll buy another one to have when washing this one. It washes great also.

Very blanket cushion
Our dog loved this cushion that kept him so warm. Unfortunately he passed away of cancer about a week after he started using it. I washed it & it does wash up really nice. I put it back in his bed & now the cats are enjoying the cushion. They probably think they're laying on the dog that always kept them so warm in the winter. Would definitely recommend it.

Keeps him cozy
My pup is getting on in years and is not as able to maintain his heat. I bought similar beds for the cats, and they love them when it gets cold in the house at night. This pad works well for the dog too. He loves it.
I washed it before putting it on his bed, and it came through fine.
