While I was cleaning the other day i found an old dog bed cover. it is one of those huge round dog beds. i was thinking of stuffing it and giving it to the dogs so they have something comfy to lay on besides my couch and chair. but i don't know what to buy to stuff it with. do they sell replacement dog bed stuffing ?
Yeah Scout, go to the store and ask for replacement dog bed stuffing, and when they stop laughing e-mail and tell me what they said. LOL! Go to Wal-Mart and look in the craft section at the stuff used for pillows. Hobby Lobby or Michaels also has it. You can buy shredded foam or the regular stuffing for pillows. Don't get cotton if it is something you think you will put in the washing machine. Cotton will mat up.
When I first got Rusty my mom made him a beautiful bed and she bought a foam pad from walmart, they have all kinds of stuffing there. Just wonder to the back of the store and look around in the crafts section. While you're there see if you can put a bag of m&m's on layaway.
the stuff i use to stuff it doesn't have to be machine washable. the cover i found is an unzippable (word?) cover so i can take that off and wash it on its own.i will check out the foster and smith link and also walmart. maybe i can get some of that egg crate stuff for it ? i hesitate with any of the pine or cedar shaving stuff because i had a golden once who would get bad bacterial skin infections from the cedar filled beds. he reacted to the oils in the wood.
okay gina , i will try that with the m&m's. can i have your number in case i need to explain my way out of the loony bin ? maybe i better wait til your back to try it :)
yes bron i do. but since that was stosh's bed i kind of feel sad to use it for anyone else. especially since when we had prinny she dug on it alot and wore a small section of it out. so it is clean and safe in the trunk of my car. it probably is not rational to keep it from thunder and scout but i just can't yet :( i did use it a little when i first got scout but i felt so guilty i havent used it since.
Thanks Mizzi. I could not think of the name of Poly Fill for the life of me. I probably have at least two bags upstairs, but that was too far for me to travel. Scout, take the pillow with you and stuff it at Wal-Mart. Tell them you aren't sure how many bags you will need. Let me know how that turns out.
you know, on the radio station i listen to they periodically ahve a segment called " knuckleheads in the news ". why do i get the feeling they may be talking about me one morning if i listen to your advice cricket and gina ?
