I always loved that style of bed so I got a few (granted they were cheapies although one wasn't I just got it deeply discounted) but just by their very construction method, I have to say that they and I did not get on well at all.

I found that all the stuffing balls up into one corner of each compartment it's contained in, even including the bottom layer that dog is supposed to sleep on, the wall constantly collapses, the tie that holds the thing circular & upright constantly comes undone, is a chew magnet for dogs and I just generally found the entire concept to be quite useless and a waste of money.

Had a look at your seller LS, she's not bad is she, she wants $30 to send a polyester blanket across the pond, pfft, they have no idea how their business would increase 10 fold if only they did it right.

Those beds are gorgeous, but like you Dee over the years I have just found those kind of beds to be a disaster - anything with stuffing, I feel just doesn't wash well or completey - I'm a bit of a clean freak so wash their beds every week.

The best beds I have found after 3 years with my gang are the simplest, the plastic beds with the vet bed matting which can be washed at 90c - just throw the matting into the machine then the dryer and hey presto they are spotless!! I never felt stuffed beds were cleaned as well.

Well I'll be darned Aquarius, I bought a beige (think Billy Connolly) plastic bed like that yesterday to take all x 4 & now you've got me looking at that impressive greenbacked stuff. I've read the greenbacked is far, far superior to the rubber which peels off & goes all over the place. Do you find the greenback stuff slips around in the plastic beds at all?

42$ to ship an xs bed to me. :(

14$ to ship a 15$ tiny collar from States to Canada...


But yes her beds are very very cute, but a 100$ for a bed + 42$ shipping is just out of my reach.

Yes :) that greenbacked stuff is really as good as it sounds - I bought a large piece cost me about 50 euro and cut it into six pieces - I have the same lot for about two years - so that's 52 washes a piece and it is still as good as the day I bought it. No slip, I cut squares so it curves up the back of the beds so really cosy too. My dogs are all outdoor trained, so they can come in drenched (as they do living in Ireland :) ) and the beds just wick off the wet - they are brilliant!! and the fact that you can literally boil wash them - what more can I say!

I love the fancier beds but no way would they stand up to the washing that these vet beds do - with 3 dogs who love their garden runs and hill walks practicality is what it's all about :)

Hmm Billy Connolly = beige? I loved him years ago but of late I've hardly heard of him and if I remember right he was caught up in controversy because he was really politically incorrect about something - say I wandering off to google Billy:confused:
