I have spent most of the day trying to find my curly lad a huge bed, he already has one for downstairs but he sleeps with us overnight and has had a giant beanbag up until now, as it has burst! So i am looking for a soft bed for him but it needs to be atleast 38inches wide (if not wider),a nd probably about 34-36inches deep. I know it will cost so don't worry about price, but i do need one that we can take with us to europe in a couple of weeks and one that is easily transported to other places.

Please help i am going stir crazy!

We got one from costco recently. Zip cover which can be taken off and washed. No idea of size but it certainly was fine for our very large male great dane!

Have you looked on EBAY? My motto is, if in doubt look on EBAY smile

These were recommended to me by another MNetter and are excellent:

thanks all for replies. I have looked on ebay but always get a bit jittery about buying stuff like this and just can't do it blush

Bella which do you have? they look good but can't decide on one for the lad as he likes to be cocooned by sides! That was why he had the beanbag (that wasn't bought for him in the first place but he adopted it) because he gets on it and sinks! and he is a heavy lug.

- runs off to get another link....

Bella21 Thu 06-Aug-09 14:38:38

Lab chewed corner of this noe though!

The oval one is fab.

I have to say i was instantly tempeted to go for the oval one as i know he will like it.

One last question bella, are they noisy? IYKWIM,

morethanyoubargainfor Thu 06-Aug-09 14:49:34

this was my only other choice really

Do you know anything about these?

Bella21 Thu 06-Aug-09 15:04:05

I had seen them, but was shock at the price.

I get the commercial fabric in the ones I linked to - I reckon if it's good enough for the police, it's good enough for me!

Bit rustly when my dobe scrabbles like mad to get herself into exactly the right postion. Lab just flops...

I know what you mean Bella! still tempted tho' wink

Thanks for link spugs unfortunatley they don't have sides so to speak and knowing what a clutz my lad is he will fall off it then spend half the night wandering around wondering what had happened to him. smile

not sure what we have at work for monster 10.5 stone puppy

its about the size of a single mattress grin

we have 2, one in kitchen/cage and one in living room

will check and measure on monday
have to say i rather like the look of this

sure db would cough up that for his woofa

morethanyoubargainfor Thu 06-Aug-09 16:04:58

blondes i can't really have anything for him that can't travel! the one he has downstairs is pretty unmovable, so really need one that we can take with us where ever we go, (give a dog a passsport and he will travel grin) I really do like the bagel bes, it just looks so cosy and comfy, but can i justify the price?

<<goes in search of reasons, any help appreciated as my DH is as tight as a fishes arse!>>

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 06-Aug-09 16:20:12

£140 - thats 38p a day for one years useage - surely your dh will think your woofa is worth .38p a day?

and if uses it for 2 years thats 19p per day

let alone 3/4years so 5p a day grin

a mere bargain


offer sexual favours to dh - thats you not the dog grin

What about a Bia bed? They are wide and long, if not as deep as you want, and incredibly comfortable. We've got one for our springer and I would happily snuggle up in it.

Don't think the people who run this site can get them at the moment (they are friends of a friends of mine), but you might get a second hand one on ebay.

morethanyoubargainfor Thu 06-Aug-09 16:44:36

thanks for that blondes, when you put it that way it doesn't seem to need justifying grin

Might keep sexual favours under hat for now, you know what with christmas coming up!!

Think i should just buy it.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 06-Aug-09 16:52:45

def buy it

and always good to keep sexual favours grin

our mattress for our king size bed was £800 and dh was omg - till i told him how much useage he- it would get .........

thats 8hrs hours sleep a night grin

btw - does dh mind woofa watching your favours if dog is in your bedroom?

morethanyoubargainfor Thu 06-Aug-09 16:55:51

Dog can spend a little time on his own downstairs, will only be 5 minutes grin he won't mind, he can cope that long!

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 06-Aug-09 17:06:28

pmsl - i think i shocked corrupted bella when i said when dh and i did on the sofa


infront of my darling hamsters


have you put in your order for woofa then?

and what breed /age is he?

morethanyoubargainfor Thu 06-Aug-09 17:11:29

My lad is a curly coated retriever and he will be 2 in september, so still a baby really, he needs his comfort!

Going in search of piccy now

What about a big bit of vet bed and then just put some hotel pillows/cushions around it!
Vet bed is very comfy and keeps them warm/cool. Plus it rolls up, you can wash it and its not horribly expensive.
