    Default If it's not the washing machine, it's the dryer

    So over pet beds!!!! On the extra gentle cycle of the washing machine, we've destroyed 3 pet beds for Ellie Mae. She had wet on her pad today when I got home at lunch and it had gotten on the front of her bed. Well, I washed it and put it in the dryer on tumble dry low like the care tag says. What do I see when I get home?? The bottom of the bed ripped ope from the heat in the dryer..........on tumble dry low!!!!!!!!!!!! This one makes the 4th...FML.....FML....



    Sounds like it'll be towels and blankets for Miss Ellie Mae for a while.

    And yes, I do kiss my bulldog with that filthy mouth.

    I just ordered 2 tuff beds from k9ballistic. They're supposed to be waterproof and chew proof. Abby has been throwing up a lot lately on her beds and Otis eats everything in sight. I'm going to try the military grade beds.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Bertha gets old kid blankets and towels. I saw the cutest Diva pet bed but she is not worthy of a Diva bed quite yet. But we are close, oh so close!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    Just go to a thrift store and buy some nice 99 cent blankies. When they get destroyed, out they go!

    Our last bully would destroy pet beds in 30 minutes, but towels from Wal-Mart would last a couple of months. Now Ellie Mae loves her beds, but the washing machine and dryer obviously don't. She's got 2 soft receiving blankets from Wally World right now.

    I have been through so many beds with the washing. Don't know why they make the bottom out of such a different material. They never last more than three or so washes and drys. Kills me. She tends to like to pee a bit on her bed, to mark would be my guess, or maybe that is so she has an excuse to sleep on the bed with me. She does like the tempurpedic mattress. I pretty much gave up and buy her blankets to put in the crate, that way I can wash them weekly with her bath towels. At this point she probably figures my bed and the sofa are her beds so why bother to buy any more dog beds.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.

    I am a fan of thrift store blankets, towels, sheets, and even comforters. They hold up great in the wash and allows me to change out there bedding every day or two. If they get chewed or destroyed, I don't feel bad tossing them.
