As soon as we took the bed out of the box, our Havanese climbed in. Then, it was quite a trick to take it away from him in order to wash it! He loves it, and we do too! It is the perfect combination of supportive and cushy. I was afraid that it would be too firm to be cozy, but it actually has a lot of give. The material is luscious and soft. Don't hesitate to buy it. My only slightly negative feeling about the bed is the size. My dog is 15 pounds, and a somewhat smaller version of the bed would have been better. The size small would be too small, but the medium is a bit too big.
