the new dog bed

You can lead a dog to a new bed, but you can't make her lie on it.

This will have to be my new saying, because I spent more money than I like on a fancy new bed for Penny today and she's NOT interested.

Here's the old one, which is looking pretty worn out.

And here's the new one, with Penny looking rather worried about it.

We have the new one sitting on the old one, in the hope that the 'nice' smell might rub off on the new one.

It's probably not going to happen, because the new one is really too small. And we can't return it because we let Penny play with it and toss it around the kitchen to help her see it as a fun place to be.

Oh, well. Better put it down to experience and scan the internet  for a bed that looks like the old one.

Maybe you can put the new one on top of the old one and see how it goes? Maybe a cookie tossed inside will help? And maybe Penny just needs some time to adjust.

Mollie and Mackie, I'll do that. We'll give it a week. After that, I guess some doggy rescue organisation will be happy to have it.

Crikey ..... Just let Penny sleep in the old one and buy a puppy for the new one.

Charlie, you've got us laughing out loud with that comment!
