Max has decided that with all the chaos around here, he’s going to take over Logan’s bed. When we first got this bed (for Logan), Max had to check it out and the first couple of weeks he slept in it during the day and Logan used it at night. Logan didn’t mind sharing so we didn’t worry about Max using it. After a few weeks, the novelty wore off and Max went back to his cat beds and our bed. For the last couple of years, except for occasionally playing with his soccer ball in it, Max has stayed out and Logan has been the only one using his bed. We bought the bed for Logan, it fits him perfectly (he likes to sleep curled up like a cat), and he likes it.
Fast forward a couple of years, we are in the middle of the big brick switch and all of a sudden Max is back in the dog bed! He’s not just exploring and sniffing either. He’s playing, he’s bringing toys into the bed, he’s taking naps there, and he’s sitting in it like he owns it. Fortunately, he’s getting out of it at night (when Logan wants it) and he will move if Logan wants him out of it during the day. (Logan can snarfle him with a big, wet, nose and that will get him moving.) We’ve discussed getting a smaller bed in the exact same fabric for Max (they make them for smaller dogs too), but we’re not sure he would use it. We’re afraid he would give it to Logan and take the big one (and we don’t really have floor space for a second big bed). For now at least, we’re going to leave things as they are because he may get out of the bed as suddenly as he got in, once this rebuilding is over. Until then, it’s a good thing Logan shares so well!
