As a granny nanny – of grandkids AND granddogs – in the baby boomer generation, I have certainly seen a lot of changes over the years. I've seen black and white TVs give way to color. I've seen the rocket ships morph into cool space shuttles. And I've seen dog beds grow up from simple blankets on the floor to very nice extra large orthopedic dog beds. This one has comfort foam for a comfy softness.
Now one of my granddogs, with whom I love to take walks and find love flowers to photograph with my easy to use digital camera (yup – that's where the top picture came from) doesn't have the orthopedic variety. His is a fluffy, comfy well-stuffed extra large dog bed that he absolutely loves!
But I have another granddog who is getting on in years with achy bones (sounds like me ), so he does need one of those large orthopedic dog beds like this cute golden retriever is modeling. In fact, he – like this sweet dog – prefers a memory foam dog bed.
I can't complain – since I sleep on a memory foam mattress topper pad myself. They really do help all of us boomers and seniors who are "feeling our age," be we woman or granddog. How about your dogs and granddogs? Do they have extra large or extra small designer or orthopedic dog beds, blankets, or something else entirely?
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoy them very much and read each one. I also love the grand ideas so many of you share that help and encourage other readers. Thank you.
