I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that 3 or 4 dogs would lay in the bed all day long, after sleeping on it with us all night long. Poor bed never got a chance to recover. So it was time for new mattresses. Since they are of the same make & model this time, and we got matching covers, it looks like one big bed.
Once the beds were made, and the baby gate went away, dogs appeared like magic. The extra is Blue, who is all for new bed testing.
We also got new night stands and dressers, but the kids were only interested in the beds. I know you're a touchy-feely group, but you guys can spread out.
