This was a replacement bed for our Labrador 'Maj' (named Majesty because she was born on the day of the Diamond Jubilee!). We were a little apprehensive because she'd had her last bed for 5 years and it was big enough for two large dogs whereas this is a perfect size for one Labrador. But we needn't have worried; she went straight into this super bed and sunk into the deep thick cushion with relish. It looks very smart and we have already washed the cover successfully which was a very easy task compared to the last bed. Maj can curl up or stretch out and whatever she chooses she looks completely at home and very comfortable.
