I have a old 13 yr old lab that the arthritis is getting to, thinking of getting her a baby crib mattress to help her out any suggestions? Also what kind of mat do you use in kennel for your lab?

They make some pretty good orthopedic dog beds. They are high dollar though (probably in the $200-300 range for the size a lab needs).

With that said - if you're anywhere near Canton, First Monday is this weekend. There is a guy there that sells dog beds - on the main part where all the regular stuff is (not dog alley) that is by the creek between the pavilions and the large open area. From time to time he will have orthopedic beds at a much better price than you can find anywhere. We got one a few years back and it's still holding up well. It is also a good place to get a regular dog bed if anyone is looking - think the regular ones are like $25 - he over stuffs them and IMO they're better than anything in the stores.

Go to and search for the Coolaroo dog bed. My 15 year old GSP loves it.

If they didn't want me to have a midnight snack, then why did they put a light in the refrigerator?

Go to Walmart and buy a 4" temperpedic mattress. You can cut it to what ever size you need. Just a thought.

I buy throw pillows with thick covers from the local Methodist good will. Usually $2-3 per pillow.
