Linguini's Recession Small Dog Bed

We're all affected by the recession. With foreclosures on the rise and peoples losing their homes, dog rescue and animal rescue organizations across the country believe us furiends to be the newest victim. Duh! Linguini has taken all this to heart. She's got all the dog food  (kibble) she needs and a roof over her head. She now wishes to make a statement.
She decided to give up this:
a deluxe large dog bed
In exchange for that:

a ratty small dog bed

What on earth? Our Linguini always has her own approach to life. She's unique, as Momma says while shaking her head. Designer dog beds aren't her style! BOL

Linguini's take on the recession and a message from her:
I have empathy for the economy and I prefer my small dog bed

Just for giggles

There, I even gave you a sneak peek of your Frankie. We're all doing the best we can, but we must also maintain a good sense of humor.

So she's sizing down? Are you taking over the couch, Twink?

We did like the herding video.. We don't think the horse did though..

HAHAHA! Linguini, how kind of you to give up the big couch for that little donut bed!

It CAN'T be comfortable for you, so might we suggest that big bed that the hoomans use? I'm sure they won't mind at all!!!

Good luck!

Love,
S-Dog

Linguini is a very beautiful spotty girl. She might need a bigger cushion bed, though.

Hi Twinkie,
Mom thought she'd answer the question you left in your comment about me being 'center'.
The medallion on our rug is Madi's favorite spot. She somehow 99% of the time will position herself smack in the middle.
Linguini and Madi are in the same pose today...which as I told Madi is NOT very lady like.

Like so many, I see that Linguini is DOWNSIZING. Tooo funny!!!
Love that "fetching" couch shot.

JackDaddy said...

Oh my, that was funny! I wonder if Linguini still thinks he's a puppy!

You might pose for photos while cooped up in the little bed, but I bet that when you sleep you'll end up stretching over to that gray bed next to you. Momma says Pops steals her blanket and space like that when he sleeps too!

Howdy hoo,
Well, while that bed is a bit to small for Linguini, perhaps, Mommy could put a big beach towel or crate pad underneath the tiny bed;then, Linguini, could give up the big couch and be comfy at the same time.

Some beds are just better than others regardless of size.

Hey! Sorry I haven't been visiting too much lately. I am still here, but most busy making.

Linguini, I love your idea of downsizing! We all have to scale back, I guess.

Twix said...

Twink, I know how your little mind works....you have convinced Linguini that she needs to downsize due to the recession while you are eyeing that couch so you can upsize. Us small dogs think alike cause that is exactly what I would do too!
Snuggles,

It seems the dog bed bubble has burst. It had to happen eventually.

Martha and Bailey said...

We need to come bag and see the videos - blogger is not letting us play them!
Linguini looks lovely and we will come back and see her in action.

Blogger is being a jerk and won't let us watch your video, Twink!
Linguini looks pretty unhappy and uncomfy!

Love ya lots,

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

You are right Linguini, the recession is awful for all of us but at least we have each other, a warm home and good food.
Couldn't see the videos, they were just a black screen :(
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

We couldn't get the videos to play but we will try again later. Linguini sure knows how to strike a sexy pose there.
