Except for one little thing...
Daisie didn't like the new bed...It stunk of CLEAN...
She flat out rejected it, walked away, and would not lay on it...AT ALL.
Caitlin, being the brilliant girl that she is, finally suggested that we put the old bed on top of the new. It might get Daisie to lay down again, and would transfer some familiar smell to the new one.
As I said, Cait is brilliant! Daisie went for it, tentatively at first!
Soon, we decided to turn things over and see if Daisie would accept the new on top of the old...Sucess! Then it was time to separate the two and put the old one on the deck.
Inexplicably, Daisie once again rejected the new bed.
What was the problem now???
Caitlin figured it out again. She surmised that Daisie wanted TWO beds...one was just not cushy enough. We tested our theory by putting the double in various places around the house. Wherever the double was, she would lay down. Put the single out, we would find her at our side with sad eyes looking up at us.
So it's been 2 beds for The Princess ever since...She even gets creative with her cushions...
It looks like this spring I will be looking for two matching beds at Costco.
