The Perfect Size

Merci:  You might remember I was recently accused of de-stuffing all our beds.  (Doxies in White Coats and Dust Mites Exonerated)

Buddy:  Accused?  You were guilty!

Cyndi:  Jan felt sorry for you in the cold and bought you a Merci-sized new bed and Buddy a big, soft, puffy bed for Christmas.  You were always in his bed and Buddy had to keep getting Jan to chase you out so Buddy could sleep in his own bed.  (Musical Beds)

Merci:  Well, Buddy's bed was nicer than my bed.  Soft, warm. roomy, and higher off the cold floor.

Buddy:  Jan was so upset with you for de-struffing all our beds she said she will not buy you another one if you go de-stuffing again.

Merci:  Jan didn't mean it.  She came home Tuesday with a big, soft, puffy bed for me, one just like Buddy's.

Buddy:  Actually, we all know how forgetful she is, but she says she decided it's Christmas and Merci really, really, really wanted one of those beds.

Merci:   She came home with one Tuesday.  She woke me in my small bed and I thought I was being evicted again and walked away.

Cyndi: And guess who came lumbering and grumbling across the room, complaining that he is the official bed tester?  Yep, Buddy.  Jan chased him off and made sure Merci got to curl up in her new bed.  This is what she saw a few minutes later when she turned back to check on Merci.  Merci is the small red blob on the far side of Buddy.

Buddy:  Well, I have always been the official bed tester until recently when Merci started getting a bit senile and forgot her place in the scheme of this pack.  I did my duty!  I tested the bed and approved it.

Merci:  It's about time Buddy moved to his own bed so I can stretch out and enjoy some space.  Buddy was really thankful for his soft bed and  now I'm really thankful for mine.

Cyndi:  Uh, Merci, are you aware there is also room on that bed for all of us felines and there would still be room left over?

Merci:  You must need glasses.  Anyone can see this bed is just the perfect size for me.

We are joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop at Brian's Home


  1. Jake has no bed.. poor guy, he sleeps on two sofas and two chairs, the human kind. I hope he never thinks of destuffing HIS beds... he is not allow on the human bed though

  2. Bed tester sounds like a fun job.

  3. Just cuz you are smaller than the bed doesn't mean you don't need room to spread out and stretch!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  4. I have a big comfy doggie bed. But I'd rather sleep on my blanket on the couch. I really miss my nap buddy Joey dog, though.

    wooohoooo... Merci, Jan's generosity knows no bounds, what a lucky doggy you are!!! Buddy even warmed it up for you, just as you did his. All is well on the farm. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  6. Do you know we don't like beds!

  7. When the kids were little, our dog, Belle, 'destuffed' every plush toy she could get her paws on ... she practically single-pawed taught the babies to put their toys away.

  8. We'll be interested to see who tries out the bed next. We play musical beds around here selecting whichever suits our fancy when we're ready to nap. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. BED TESTER??? THAT sounds like a GRAND Job to US...
    ♫ you play ♫ MUSICAL ♫ BEDS ♫

  10. There is nothing better than a new bed. The boys play musical beds too.

  11. Well, today I am thankful that Jan is not trying to sleep with all of you in that bed. At least SOMEONE around there has the decency to stay in her own space!!!

  12. I think you guys need your own real king sized bed or at least a queen sized :)

  13. Comfy and sizing is in the paw of the beholder! Hey, the peeps at stuffing at Thanksgiving, but it didn't look like yours did. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  14. The good thing about large pet beds is that more than one of us can fit in them. Now all TBT wants to see is us actually doing that.

  15. Glad you now have a nice cozy soft bed, Merci. Just the right size too...BOL!

  16. Nice bed Merci! We bet you could share with the kitties too.
