Many research studies confirmed that shopping boosts your mood and makes you feel better.
Exactly what I did a week ago (last Saturday 2/9).
If you are friends with me in FB, I instagram a photo of me shopping for a new bed.
Suffering from an ear infection, mom had an idea to go for a short walk,
get some fresh air and visit a neighborhood pet boutique.
It was a tiny shop with high quality dog food and pet accessories.
I stood by the beds hinting mom that I need a new one.
Mom intended to buy a new bed via on-line but due to time and
to make me feel more comfortable she bought a new bed for me.
What do you think?
I Golden LOVE it!
It is made by Jax and Bones, known as the creators of the best eco-friendly pet beds
and are made proudly in the USA.
I selected the nest style bed in medium/large size.
It is built like a sofa.
My mom loves the heavy weight animal safe furniture fabric used to cover the fiber.
The fiber is eco-friendly and allergy free (big selling point for us since I have allergies).
The center pad is removable and can be used as a crate/floor pad.
It has bolsters with zippers and removable.
Both the pad and bolsters fabric covering are machine washable.
Me sleeping is mom’s favorite time of taking photos.
Why? She says that I look adorable while I sleep. I’m quite funny too.
The photos above prove that I had good sleep.
The bed is very comfortable.
I was able to use the sides of the bed as a head pillow.
I totally took advantage of the length of the bed, I’m able to stretch out!
Mom’s $ were definitely well spent. The bed I selected was a bit pricey.
The amount mom paid was not her normal/average spending.
She surely splurge on this one …
but she is not complaining because its for me.
She knows it is worthwhile.
Also, my new bed will definitely add pizazz to our home furnishing.
Not only does it provide me comfort, it also gives a sophisticated style
which we know our home guests will take note and love.
(Will certainly do a follow-up post, once we are back home and settled in.)
There are a number of luxury beds available on the market today that may surprise you.
Just keep in mind and prioritize your dog’s comfort.
Would you splurge on your dog’s bed?
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs

I think this is worth the splurge. We do tend to get beds at Costco mainly because with Freedom, Casper & Nikki everything is x3. I have been thinking of getting one nice bed and trying it out to see if I think it is worth it. For you guys, I think those pictures of Sugar say it all…definitely worth it.
Oh Sugar, I LOVE IT!!! Now, there are things one SHOULD splurge on, and this IS one of them. Your doggie bed is one of the things I thinks you should get good quality and craftsmanship. Ma bought me a VERY expensive Orvis bed that has lasted me 3 yrs so far, and has no signs of ‘dying’ anytime soon. And, I am NOT easy on it either. So, getting a good doggie bed is a VERY good investment! Kudos Moms!
You looks so CUTE sleepin’, and it looks like you highly approve!
Sweet Dreams Sweet Sugar!
You look so sweet when you sleep! We are glad you have a nice bed!
MURPHY and Stanley
You no doubt are adorable while sleeping. I love your bed. I think when I need a new one I will have my MOM check this kind of bed out MOM loves the style and look. Happy sleeping Sugar.
You sure look comfy in your new bed.
Sugar, you are a fantastic advertisement for that bed. Maybe you should become the ‘face’ of those products. That bed looks soooooo comfortable.
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
Little Reufus says
The one fing I can say about that bed is that… Yeu make it look comfy! Lubbs yeu, Miss Sugar!
We TOTALLY love your new bed Sugar!!! You look positively AWESOME on it!! The pictures of you sleeping are so precious…we can understand why your mom would want to take pics of you sleeping!! Of COURSE mama would splurge on beds for us…just like your mom…sometimes they just have to…they love us! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
Sue at Talking Dogs says
I’ve splurged on many a dog bed and really believe you get what you pay for! Sugar, you look so comfy on your new bed and it is beautiful! Woofs from Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie
You certainly look very comfortable and relaxed in your bed. And you know we fur babies are worth anything our peeps spend on us. Our mom went through a whole bed buying phase….she tried many different kinds and styles…but you know…we never sleep on any of them…we just prefer the cool floor.
I would splurge on a doggie bed. I generally splurge on the doggie when I can over splurging on myself. Looks very comfy! I am going to pretend that I didn’t read that shopping boosts your mood – I could proclaim to need some serious mood boosting!
We haven’t bought the boys a bed in a while. Monty ate through the last two, and while we would dearly like one for Sam, we aren’t going to risk him eating the fluff when we are gone. Enjoy your new bed, Sugar!
easy rider says
That’s a fabulous bed – is there any room for me too?
well I certainly got lots of golden smiles today… each and every photo of you and you wonderful new sofa bed made me smile even bigger. you look so adorable sleeping, so mom is right….
Comedy Plus says
Very nice bed Sugar. Our Little Bit has a bed upstairs and one downstairs. She also can sleep on the loveseat or the couch or anywhere else she wants. She’s the boss around here.
Have a fabulous woof woof weekend. My best to your mom. 🙂
Frankie Furter and Ernie says
OH MY…. THAT looks so VERY comfortable!!!
Emily @ Adventures of a Dog Mom says
You do look really cute when you are sleeping and that new bed is really nice. I’ve done a little splurging on beds for Dottie since she has some back and elbow problems but nothing that fancy. Maybe I should do a little shopping soon!
Sugar, that is a lush bed – and you look supremely comfy!
Nice new bed, Sugar! You’re Mom’s right…you are adorable when you are sleeping! Hope your ear is better now. Happy Saturday!
Saved by dogs says
When Lil quits dismantling her beds, she will get a splurge bed 🙂
Molly The Wally says
Oh Sugar that looks so comfy I can jump right in there with you. You fortune is my very last one! We hope you enjoy it. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly
Madi and Mom says
Hey Sugar you do for sure look like you are absolutely sleeping in style and comfort!!
I love how you can stretch out your golden self too. YES YOU ARE WORTH IT!!
Hugs your BFFF
Kelly Daye says
You are always adorable, but especially in your new bed!
You are very lucky to have such a wonderful loving Mom — but then I’m sure you know that.
You know as youngsters we sleep in anything or anywhere for that matter but since my sister is older and has arthritis issues the bed thing has changed and she needs something with more support. It really makes a difference for her and how she feels when she gets up and mom has noticed that she sleeps in her bed more now that she has the memory foam mattress…it is expensive but nothing is too spendy for us girls in mom’s eyes! Happy snoozin’!
Max's Mom says
Looks like you picked well!!! Too cute!
Jen K says
Nice new furniture! Looks like it does the job very well!
Have a good weekend!
Kim - Life at Golden Pines says
Sugar, your bed is really beautiful, and I know it will be one that lasts a long, long time because it’s made so well. We buy dogs extra beds from Costco, and have 3 expensive ones and there is a big difference and were worth the $$ that was spent on them. Stay comfy and warm!!
caren gittleman says
yes if he would sleep on one! Dakota HATES dog beds. He either willingly (and preferred) sleeps on the floor and this winter he has begun sleeping on the couch.
I do splurge on my three pups.:) I’m definitely checking these beds out. Thanks for the info. You are absolutely adorable in all these photos!!!
Dolly the Doxie says
Was the store Tails in the City? I heard that place is great I’ve never been. You sure do look comfortable your mom made a great choice!
Good for you, Sugar. Now I always think you’re a cutie-patootie, but those pics of you sleeping, especially with your Golden legs in the air, and your **arms** all curled up…… are great…
Nice bed, Sugar! You’re one lucky pup. You look super comfortable in that bed of yours. We have a Jax and Bones toy and it’s great.
BJ Pup says
Sugar, you do look adorable when you sleep. I have two beds, one in the living room and one in the bedroom – when mom bought a new one for me she kept the old one.
Now she has a dilemma. The bedroom bed, the old one, really isn’t comfortable – it’s worn out. Her dilemma – I sleep on her bed most of the the time, so she doesn’t know if it pays to buy one for the floor.
Boy what problems.
Enjoy your new bed.
Murray's Mouth says
We have beds all over…and all kinds! Enjoy!
You sure do look comfy on that bed Sugar! That certainly was money well spent!
Just make sure you don’t become to a serious shopaholic!
I’m sure it was worth every penny judging by the pictures, you look absolutely comfy and happy in that bed Sugar!
We all know how important a good mattress and pillow can be for us….I’m sure you appreciate that goodness too 🙂
BZ Training says
The shot belly up with paws in the air is how Henry sleeps. Adorable! I almost never get an actual sleeping picture as they come running if I get anywhere near the camera.
Oh Sugar, that looks worth the money for sure. My Mum is now trying to find J & B in Europe 🙂
Holly Molley, that’s sure is a wonderful bed, It’s huge..Enjoy having a nice nap xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
When a Woof looks that happy, you know you got the right bed.
Hawk aka BrownDog says
sigh…my Human has already splurged on beds for me…I have day beds and sleeping beds and napping beds…beds here at the shore, travel beds, beds in the mountain house…I have several memory foam beds. If my Human sees a bed she thinks I’ll like…home it comes!!! I love it!!! ‘Course laying on the rug in front of the fireplace is still a favorite place to sleep on a chilly evening.
Y’all come back now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
Love it! You deserve a nice comfy bed!! All pets need a comfy bed!!
Very posh indeed… Sophie wants one!
You sure seem to like it!
Casey the Boxer says
Wow, that’s a beeYOUtiful bed! You definitely deserve a posh one.
That bed is awesome! You look so comfortable, you lucky dog.
What a great bed, Sugar! A stylish bed for a stylish pup 🙂 Definitely worth some extra monies!
