When we were looking to adopt our dog, we had to dodge quite a few obstacles in the process. You see, after educating ourselves on the various dog breeds, we had decided upon a husky. Overall, Siberian huskies are known to be full of energy, frequent diggers, fabulous escape artists, eager chasers, and horridly disobedient. In a nutshell, they have a reputation for being crazy and difficult. However, to me, saying all of that is like saying that all pit bulls are mean, savage animals. Of course, neither of those statements rings any truth. One simply cannot make blanket statements in regard to an entire breed or animal based on the actions and characteristics of some.
Despite being turned down time and time again from various animal rescue organizations based on such ludicrous reasoning, we were finally able to welcome the perfect pup into our family. To counteract the judgements against his breed, he is the most loving, calm, sweet, couch potato that we could’ve ever imagined. No, really, he’s a lazy husky. As if that isn’t an oxymoron!
Now, one particular statement spanning the breed that I can agree with is in regard to their cuteness. It’s kind of undeniable and that is exactly what led us (and him) to this whole couch situation to begin with. He’d lie down on the floor and reach his adorable little face up to rest his head on my leg. Then, he’d just stare at me. He’s cute. I caved. And now here we are; myself on one cushion of the couch and him taking up closer to three. Clearly, we need to find a solution.
That is where Petmate comes in.
While many of you may recognize Petmate as a brand that is synonymous with things like pet toys and similar products, you might be surprised to learn that they offer a collection of pet bedding through Aspen Pet.
Aspen Pet products are designed with basic function and classic design in mind. This is a line that is geared to help make the lives of pets and their families easier.
Since bringing our canine pal home, we’ve been through a few different types of pet beds and, well, you see where that got us. His first bed… he pawed at it, bit it, chewed on it, and tore it to shreds. His second bed has a few holes in it but he’ll only lay on it overnight and only when it is conveniently positioned next to our own bed. Throughout the day, if he’s in need of a quick doggy nap, you’ll likely find him on his “spot” of the couch.
Thankfully, we recently had the opportunity to give the all new Aspen Pet Shearling Gusseted Pillow Bed a try for him and let’s just say that the third time’s a charm.
From the moment that we took the bed out of its box, he was all over it and literally so. At first, he was jumping, pouncing, and rolling around with excitement but quickly realized just how cozy it was. From there, he was out like a light and snoozing away comfortably and, yes, adorably.
The Aspen Pet Shearling Gusseted Pillow Bed provides the perfect combination of comfort and luxury. This cozy bed features soft, supple micro-suede with plush shearling trim, high loft polyfill, and paw print accents.
Available in both denim blue and dark tan and in sizes up to 36×45-inches, the Shearling Gusseted Pillow Bed is absolutely perfect for large dogs that enjoy being able to stretch out. Since getting this bed, the pup has loved to cuddle up, stretch out, lie down, and simply relax in comfort.
While he may enjoy the coziness of the micro-suede,
…one of my favorite features of the bed is actually the underside of it. In a house with wall-to-wall hardwood flooring, most pet beds easily slip and slide across the room the very second that any of our animals jump onto it. With this bed from Aspen Pet, that is no longer an issue. With the underside featuring a lightly studded base (think non-slip socks), this bed is sure to stay in place regardless of your flooring type.
Of course, that isn’t to take away from the adorable and always visible design of the bed itself. Even from across the room, the micro-suede just screams comfort and the finishing touches with the inclusion of the cute paw print and shearling trim make it that much greater.
Not only is the Shearling Gusseted Pillow Bed a wonderful new addition to the ensemble of dog products strewn throughout our house but I am proud to say that (on his behalf) that our sweet canine pal absolutely loves his brand new bed. While cuddling up with him on the couch was nice from time to time, I am so glad to have finally found a bed that he truly feels comfortable on. He’s happier having a true place of his own and, in turn, I’m sure that my vacuum is quite pleased. Let’s face it… shedding dogs and dark furniture just don’t mix. Finally with his own space thanks to Aspen Pet, he has graciously opted to choose his new bed over the couch and that makes it a happy day for all.
Bringing it back to my mentioning of the clichés that go hand-in-hand with the Siberian husky breed; during the moments when he’s off running around like a crazy fool, the bed still comes in handy despite his absence. You see, although it is recommended for large dogs, the cat has found it to be incredibly comfortable for even the pickiest of pets!
Whether you’re shopping for your canine pals or your feline friends, Aspen Pet (part of the Petmate) family, has something spectacular for everyone.
You can purchase the Shearling Gusseted Pillow Bed seen here as well as many other Aspen Pet and Petmate products direct from the company’s website as well as from a variety of pet product retailers both online and in stores nationwide.
