Life is good, NO – life is grand!

My husband and I have our bed back thanks to a company called ORVIS. For over two years I’ve tried to find any kind of bed that would interest Harley, and get him out of ours! He learned to love our bed after I had minor surgery and required bed rest for a few days. Our daughter thought it would be “nice” to pick him up and place him in our bed, so he and I could “visit.” This started an obsession that lasted two years.

When Leo came along it got to be ridiculous, there was never enough room for the four of us, so it became a race once we started removing the decorative pillows each evening. Then there was the battle for space – UGH it was awful.

Leo (bless his heart) seemed to be somewhat interested in one of the dog beds but it was entirely too small, so at night we listened as he wrestled with it for a while and then as if he “surrendered”, we’d finally hear a loud “thud” as he crashed in a corner somewhere on the hardwood floors.

After tedious research and calls, I cyber-landed upon a company called ORVIS and decided on the “Faux Fur Deep Dish Bed with Memory Foam.” After watching the “before bed behavior” of everyone scrambling for their special spot, I made the decision to not only get them each one, but to get them both an X-large (which Leo desperately needs) so there would be no fighting for the “larger size” (I’m telling you they are like children).


These beds are rated 4.6 out of 5 and worth every single star. The price is a little steep, but – trust me, it’s the only bed your dog will ever need! From day (or should I say “night”) one, Lee & I can stretch out in our bed, and laugh as the boys “sigh”, and “snore” in the evening. It doesn’t matter which one they choose, they are comfortable sharing and will flip back and forth all the time.

Sleep gets so good to them, when it’s time for them to go to sleep  – the poor things snore all night…


They will even “chill” in their beds…


ORVIS, the boys and their “pet parents” give your beds TWO PAWS UP! Your product is everything you said it would be.

So, if you want your bed back, if you want to stretch out yourself at night, check out the huge variety of beds in all sizes, colors, and prices from ORVIS.

    When I die, I want to come back as a pampered dog and laze around all day long in a great bed. Of course, I want to go to day camp at the Olde Towne Pet Resort to tire out enough to really enjoy that bed!

    Hi! I’m looking at the Orvis beds for my elderly dog and came upon your post. Did you get the regular memory foam or the Tempurpedic memory foam?
