Sadie started out here using an old basket to sleep in; it was too small and tipped easily.
On her first night with us, I awoke to go to the bathroom and heard a thump-thump-thump on the floor beside me, next to the bed: it was Sadie's tail wagging, hitting the floor. She had abandoned the basket in the kitchen and had come to sleep beside me; because I was grieving over Mandy at the time, it seemed nice to have Sadie there where I could reach down and pet her in the night. She used the basket during the day, however.
So last week we bought her a nice, plush dog bed, and she seemed happy enough with it. At night I'd take it in my room and put it in her favorite spot by my side of the bed. This seemed agreeable to her.
Last night I woke up and Sadie was sleeping beside her bed, not in it. Although she had her head on it, using it for a pillow.
Today she hasn't used her bed much at all; nope, she prefers the carpeted floor in my bedroom.
Anybody want to buy a dog bed, cheap?
