Our Beds Are Here! BREAKING NEWS at the bottom

Our day did not start out good here.  Mama is cleaning again.  She got the vacuum out today and I hate that thing.  She planned on cleaning the carpet, but realized she has spot remover and not carpet cleaner.  After she finished tormenting me with that vacuum, she said she was going to mop the floors.  It was at that same time that she received a notice from FedEx that our beds were in the office here.  She knew the boxes would be big, so she rushed to get them out of the office so that the office manager wouldn't complain too much.

Mama opened up the first box and my bed came out of the box. When she cut the plastic wrap, the bed came to life and grew.  BOL!  She gave it to me and I immediately laid on it. 

Mama opened up the second box and said "Crud!"   They sent us two different colors.  It was going to be the first time that we have had matching beds and Mama was excited about that.  She looked at the packing slips and they both said "Various Colors".  She checked her order form and they both said Khaki.  One is just a shade darker than the other.  It's not terrible, but they definitely are not the same.  It is too much trouble to send one back.  We have both jumped in the beds, so we will just keep them.

We think Scout is just
They are very comfy as you can tell.  They are Extra Large 52'' Majestic Pet Bagel Dog Bed.  We ordered them from Walmart because they had free shipping and they were able to get them to us faster than other places.  The reviews on them were very good and two of the people who did reviews had greyhounds, so that sold us.  The cover is not removable.  The whole thing goes in the washing machine.  I know, kind of a pain, but we can take it to the laundry here and wash it.  Dad didn't want us to get microfiber because he said it gets nasty looking with our dripping noses. 

Yep, I love my new bed. Sleeping on the floor is not so bad.

The Greyhound Who Thinks His New Bed Is Greyt


While we were writing our blog, Dad called.  Our soon to be new home was side swiped while on a test drive with the mechanic and Dad.  No one was hurt but the motor home lost some paint. The mechanic was driving, thank goodness.  We do not know what will happen now.  We are not sure if we will buy the home.  It is not owned by the dealership, but it was on consignment.  We do not know if the owner will make repairs or what.  Mama had just ordered the insurance to start tomorrow, so she canceled that.  It looks like we will be unpacking what we had packed for now.  Mama and Dad are not upset. They both just laughed.  It has been such a stressful week and everything has been a struggle, so maybe we are not meant to have that home.  Stay tuned.
