Cooper will lie on it but I am under no illusions that he will still lay at my feet or on the sofa next to me too at times. He has a smaller bed that he likes to curl up in which is in my bedroom.If only Winnie would lie on a dog bed. I have to stop myself buying them because she just doesn't want to lie on them. They only serve as somewhere to put her when she needs to be placed. She much prefers the sofa cushion or my lap or on the carpet. I would love for her to lie on a nice doggy bed.
