Teaching your pawrents to save money.


$90.00 orthopedic bed from Drs. Foster & Smith. Destroyed in pretty much a day.

$6.00 foam from Walmart & a couple freecycled blankets. Unmolested for almost a year.
Woooo,

RA & Nanük

Your friend, Lou Ann/PA said...

Nanuk . . . . might the big monster who blew up the futon the other week have a part in this, too??? Smile. You precious pup!!!
And Ra, oh God bless you, too, my handsome friend!!! Ra, you are looking so very very good honey!!!!
X-tra big kisses on all those Husky noses!!!
RaRa, you might need to have a little gentlemanly talk with Nanuk about finances and such, smile.
P.S. That is a lovely blue afghan, too!!

RA you are too right. Expensive toys no thanks. Cardboard box or empty plastic water bottle , score. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

I totally agree... the best things are for free...or probably costing $6 or so.

Our $18 bed from Costco has also lasted longer than our fancy Drs. Foster and Smith bed did!

Amazing isn't it? My neighbor gave Chancy a nice bed..he tried to tear it up so I gave it to the cats...his favorite place to sleep is a cardboard box with old blankets in it. Hugs

The Websters said...

Yeah...I only get trash to play with...empty plastic containers and such.

Humans are cheap.

We love the cheap toys better than that expensive stuff. Way to go Nuknuk & RaRa, teaching Pops a lesson in frugality!

So true. Daddy buys me toys and the 'birds' kill them. But give me a sock or a cardboard box and I'm happy for ages :-)

The Furry Kids said...

I'm with you - those Foster & Smith beds are just so delicious! But the Costco ones? Blech.

Your pal,
Titus

Suka said...

BOL! Pawsome lesson! And great photos! My human needs to get me an orthopedic bed, so thanks for the heads up on Drs. Foster & Smith. I need something yummy to destroy so I will make sure she orders one for me right away.

Good advice! Chloe's favorite "bed"...my freshly laundered blue velour spread and blanket. They are now in her crate and favorite sleeping spot in living room. Guess I need a new bedspread & blanket!
PS - you are both lookin' good!

Oskar said...

Yeah, we've found the same type of thing around here. I'm glad you found something that works!
