My dog bed is the perfect sanctuary for sleep, play, and nibbles.

It’s a great place for me to store my chew toys, especially the ones I receive monthly from BarkBox.

It provides an idyllic ground to chew antlers…
55_DogBed

Shoot laser beams…

And to pose for photo shoots…

It’s even an ideal spot to hide bones…

Even the fake ones…

So, should you let your hooman sleep with you?
19_DogBed

Yes. You should. Why?
48_DogBed

Because hoomans make perfect cuddle buddies.
22_DogBed

I won’t lie. There are risks. But I’m a gambler by nature.
49_DogBed

But before you invite your hooman into bed, set some ground rules.

Even inflatable beds.04_DogBed

Cots too!
06_DogBed

Train them to be a part of your pack.

Health benefits abound…
11_DogBed

It’s a well-known fact that I make hoomans live longer and boost your immune system.14_DogBed

If your hooman has as anxious disposition as mine does, I make him feel more calm and less nervous during snuggle sessions.25_DogBed

Because my bed is a playground, I keep my hoomans active by playing tug-of-war, or napping.
28_DogBed

If your hooman is an insomniac like mine is, I keep him company during an endless night.31_DogBed

By petting me, my hoomans feel less isolated, lonely. It’s all about touch.41_DogBed

Contrary to popular belief, hoomans do not disturb our quality of sleep, but improve it. For instance, I hide my hooman’s snores with my own.
12_DogBed

Anytime my hoomans are manic, which is often, I invite them into bed to snuggle. They settle right away.
20_DogBed

My human can be a bundle of nerves. By sharing my bed, I boost his confidence and help him cope with daily functions like going for a walk in the neighborhood and meeting strangers.
35_DogBed

Contrary to popular belief, hoomans are more than willing to share blankets.
27_DogBed

Contrary to false media reports, I do not divide hooman couples, but, rather, bring them together.
38_DogBed

Sure. My hooman rolls over, twitches, and chases money in his sleep. But that’s a small price to pay.
42_DogBed

Hoomans love to watch TV in bed. My hooman, like me, loves Boardwalk Empire.

Finally, we make each other feel better about life!
