I've noticed lately that my 10y/o Boxer Dixie has been having a hard time jumping up on the bed.  She is on medicine for her hips but I guess age + cold weather + a tall bed is too much.  Soooo I got an idea.  I posted on Freecycle that I needed a crib mattress, bought some flannel crib sheets and viola' instant doggybed!  All for less than $7.00!  I placed it at the foot of our bed so that she is still with me. She LOVES it.   Now I think I might get another for the den.
Just call me Martha Stewart!
:lol:

Lol, great idea Martha....Samson also can't get on the bed on his own either, we have to boost him up..I even bought steps, which he refuses to use  :lol: I think I insulted him...I just bought a therapeutic bed for him actually that I keep in the office

That really is a great idea!  :)  Now I wish I would've kept the kids' crib mattress. There was nothing wrong with it, and yes it would have made a great doggy bed!

Delilah has a crib mattress for a bed too! She doesn't sleep on it much though ;) hahaha.
the travel crib mattresses fit really well in the large size crates too, but apparently are fun to tear up.

Hmm thats a good idea.... IF soemone were to stitch a cover like a pillowcse over the mattress EBAY would be a hot place to be with the cost of doggy beds...
