    Interested too…maybe a nice B-day or X-mas present for the Bass. Won't be doing any splurges this winter however, Hubby and I are on major budget cut-backs until Spring…the paw print blanky will have to do (or the pile of clothes my girls love to leave around).

    a tremendous amount of time and money is spent doing research to determine exactly(sometimes to the minute) how long a warranty period should last. Anyone that's owned a BMW or MBenz knows this all to well.
    Dog beds are no different.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    Or most other automobiles these days. The month after I paid off one of the Grand Cherokees I have had it cost me $1200 in repairs. The month following it cost me another 500 or so and I traded it starting the cycle of payments all over again. I was driving around 500 miles per week for work then and needed a reliable vehicle but that hasnt stopped me from trading often even now.

    I didn't keep the BMW I had long enough to have any issues but the used Audi I bought was expensive to work on and get serviced. Thats the benefit of buying them now so you get the service contract saving you $400 or so each service

    I guess he is just telling me the couch is good enough and I let him sleep outside of his room when I am home. He goes in his room while I am gone though and sleeps in the crate on the bed he likes.

    Now this might be a silly question, but does Chunky chew only on his own beds or does he chew on other stuff too? We might be extremely lucky in that Castor doesn't chew an anything, but on the other hand, his beds don't look as soft (and chewable) as the ones you linked to. He's got a plastic basket with a couple of fleece blankets in and a bed like this also with a blanket/duvet on. I guess what I'm trying to say is that perhaps Chunky should have a less chewable bed?

    [QUOTE=Chunky White;686227]I have been buying Chunky K9Ballistics beds since he was a pup and only one has not been destroyed and its the one in his crate. Its not a crate mat just a regular 3 sided bed that happens to fit inside the crate. He tore the crate mat apart but after their warranty ran out. I purchased him another bed to sleep on when he is out of his room and he loved it and drug it around the house to sleep in different spots but still tore it apart and my warranty bed is on the way now.





    We got a super deal on a regular size bed with foam memory mattress, we think a bully has to sprawl out and I don think there is much support in animal beds as far as what is good for arthritis and spine support We took bed off the frame so he doesn't have to jump he sprawls out and snores like a beast so we know he likes it, it is just a thought and you don't have to keep replacing the bed

    Wally likes to suckle his beds, so we have bought blankets for him to suck on. Problem is that then they decide to play tug-of-war w/them and the blanket gets destroyed... Lol

    Chunky is still using the original baby blanket that he was brought him with but has torn all the trim off of it. He tore another one apart

    We play tug of war with his and I throw it over his head and watch him try and shake it off.

    I cant speak for the ToughChew, but I have the regular one of these from Orvis and its top quality. They not cheap but it has lasted couple years and is machine washable. The inside stuffing is also replaceable for a fraction of the cost.

    I tried a few different beds, my Marley seems to only like beds with a little bit of a "lip" to them for him to rest his head on. I bought this one for his 1st birthday in November and he loves it so far, it is also extremely well made. I have washed it a few times already and the material comes out perfectly clean along with being easy to take apart and put back together.
