Eko’s New Bed

I have been on the hunt for a new dog bed for a couple weeks now.  Things were getting desperate around here while I searched.

Eko demonstrated how uncomfortable his thinks his old bed is

My friend Will visited and Eko used him as an improvised bed for a while

After looking through all the recommendations I received (thank you for those!) I decided to go with a Big Barker memory foam bed.  It was expensive, but it comes with a ten year guarantee that the foam will hold its shape. Between the three beds Eko has already gone through, I spent probably about $100, so I think in the long run I will come out on top with this purchase. The bed also gets outstanding customer reviews so that I also helped me feel confident about the investment..  I ordered the bed and Eko waited expectantly for his comfy, new, BIG, bed to arrive.

“What do you mean this is my new bed?”

The bed shipped vacuum sealed, so Eko was a bit wary of whether it would work out. Once I opened the seal and let the bed unfold however, it was a completely different story.


Once unpacked the Big Barker lives up to its name.  The seven inch orthopedic foam makes the bed both sturdy and comfortable

Especially for large dogs, a good memory foam bed provides crucial body support.  When Eko gets older, the foam bed will be easy on joints as well.  I tossed Eko’s favorite winter blanket on top of the Big Barker and Eko tossed himself on the bed immediately after.  It may have hurt my pocket now, but I think I made a great investment.


Eko thinks so too

These days Eko sleeps much better and I rest a lot easier too.  Thanks again to everyone who offered suggestions and advice!
