Eureka! It's a dog bed solution

So as you may or may not know, I've been on the hunt for a dog bed that I can live with both visually and monetarily speaking. I was feeling really discouraged one day before our big move, and I brought it up to B. His response, "Why don't we just get a papasan cushion." Ding, ding, ding, ding HELLO! Sometimes I need to give B more credit and if I had brought this up to him earlier, I would have saved myself much needed time in my endless search for the perfect dog bed. That night we made a trip to our local Pier 1 and much to my satisfaction, returned with two reasonably priced, stylish "dog beds." Even better, the cushion is so big that our both of our furry monsters fit on it w/space to roll around. We saved one of them for back up in case Bella decides to eat the bed (which will happen eventually).
Ours were on sale for $45 a piece, but I think they're usually $60. We have one in green and the other in brown (both work nicely in our light blue bedroom).
Here's a patterned option that wasn't in the store, but may be worth ordering online:
Do you have chewer? The outdoor cushions may be the way to go. They're a bit pricier but will last longer.
Coral Outdoor Papasan Chair Cushion $100
My dogs have been sleeping on their cushion for a few weeks now (no complaints!)

those are awesome!! I miss pier 1!!! I do not think churchie would like that idea too much. He has gotten use to sleeping next to me. I think it would send the wrong message or something!!!
