My sister’s collie Glory is 12 years old.
Technically Glory belongs to my sister, but we refer to her as a time-share dog.
From the beginning it was understood that Glory would become my sister’s dog.
I tell you all that so you will understand why I do so much for and with Glory.
Years ago I made Glory a pretty, plump, plush, purple, princess pillow. Its no longer plump. I’ve been reading the book “Caring for your aging dog”. One of the things they recommend is a egg crate foam mattress.
I posted a request on Freecycle for some egg crate foam. This is what I received.I used the green foam (it is the thickest), cut it to size, replaced the original padding in the pretty, plush, plump, purple, princess pillow.
Glory gave it her seal of approval.Our time-share arrangement works well for
both all three of us. I have a dog anytime I want one. My sister has a reliable dog sitter anytime she needs one (she travels quite a bit). Glory gets all the love and attention she could want.
When I finished the dog bed I offered the remaining foam on Freecycle and someone asked for the rest of it.
