Big Yellow Fur Ball

This is Dixie....(a.k.a. Big Yellow Fur Ball, Monkey, "D", Monster, Captain, Snarles, DeeDoo, Dix...ok, I could go on and on with her nicknames so I will stop there)
and she in about 6 months will be my roommate. I'm not so sure how I feel about this yet. While I do LOVE Dixie(to the extent I miss her when she is not around), I don't LOVE her doggie smell...especially the one coming from her dog bed. So, I'm in the market for a dog bed with a removable cover that can be washed...A LOT. I found the one below on Orvis and it looks pretty good...I like how you can put your dog's name on it...
Do any of you dog owners out there have any suggestions for dog beds....or more importantly my survival??

  1. Unfortunately, they're all going to smell at some point. We've got two labs so I've picked up some tips along the way:

    1) Get a good, quality bed w/ a removable cover (like this one from Orvis)

    2) Vacuum it regularly to remove the hair (and leave it outside on a nice, sunny day to air it out)

    3) DON'T let Dixie lay on it if she's wet

    She looks like a sweetie-pie. Enjoy that doggie love!

  2. I have not found the perfect bed yet. Harry would love to know what you decide. It was great seeing you!
