It’s another Alfie post today – the dog is getting blogger mail! VioPet recently contacted me to ask if I wanted to pick some goodies for Alfie, and as I know a lot of you are as mad about your fur babies as I am, I said yes. I know that this is a beauty blog, but I also want to write about other things and not purely be limited to beauty, so I hope you don’t mind the occasional random post.
VioPet is part of the VioVet website and they have all you could need for your pets. From cats and dogs to birds and rabbits, they have you covered. They do beds, toys, accessories, food and even medicines so they really are a one stop shop for your animal needs.
Alfie loves toys, especially cuddly toys, but he destroys them … fast. I did consider choosing some toys for him but knowing how he operates, I didn’t think they’d be worth it with my destructive pooch. Seriously, 5 minutes is his record for tearing apart a brand new toy.
He has a bed in the bedroom (prefers my bed though), but didn’t have one for the living room where I spend a lot of time taking photographs. Also, his existing bed is past its best, so I decided to choose a new bed for him. Sometimes I can be practical!
I decided on the Lola’s Lounger Dog Bed as it looked comfortable but also easy to keep clean. It is reversible so the outer bed can be turned over to show the black side. Alfie sometimes likes to run into patches of mud, so I wanted something that I could keep looking nice.
Lola’s Dog Lounger is a spacious rectangular bed that has a soft fine latte corduroy outer (you assemble this bit yourself with a few different cushions but it’s so simple) that can be reversed to show a black waterproof polyester finish.
It is comfortable and warm, with a matching corduroy cushion and it is nice and roomy. I was sent the Small bed and even though Alfie is quite a small dog, I was worried it might not be big enough. I need not have worried as he has plenty of room to stretch out and relax.
For now we have it so the waterproof part is on the inside as it’s been raining a lot, but now the weather is getting colder, I will probably reverse it so it’s even cosier in there for him.
The small bed that Alfie has measures internally at 57 x 48cm and there’s plenty of room. Alfie is a Lhasa Apso, so slightly bigger than a Shih Tzu.
The Lola’s Lounger bed is usually on sale for £34.99 (RRP £49.99), but until December 30th, you can pick it up for just £17.49, which is a bargain. I’m really impressed with the quality and Alfie loves it.
