I don't usually gravitate towards pink or mauve, but this color is exactly as pictured and somehow even more beautiful in person. The bed is clearly made very well, very soft and comfortable. Even though our German Shepherd mix is only 50 lb right now, and will likely not grow to more than 60 lb, I went with the extra large to give her enough room to grow and sprawl out (and fit the huge crate we have in case we need/want to), and I am so happy I did! She could have done the large size, but she likes to lay in weird positions, so the extra large is perfect. I will definitely come back and buy more of this bed in the future (if we need it or get another dog).
