the smell of my desperation has become a stench


Several weeks ago Coco destroyed the dog bed that we have in our office, the one Chuck used as his main sleeping area during the night. And so for a while now Chuck has been wandering around at night, from the couch to our bed to the dog bed in the kitchen, never really satisfied with one single space. Basically driving us totally insane. On our bed, off our bed. On our bed, off our bed. Seriously, dog, it’s not like we’re asking you to burrow a den in the middle of the frozen tundra. The duvet on our bed is sateen! HOW IS THAT NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU?

So we looked and looked for a solid replacement and found this Bagel Donut Dog Pet Bed at Amazon, not realizing that it would be big enough to hold both dogs. So help me God if Coco even thinks about ripping into the lining of this one, I will fly her to the frozen tundra myself.
