    DefaultMy dog smells like a gerbil!!



    We have 2 new beds from Costco which contain the strongest smelling cedar ever!!! Every time I snuggle with Bailey, who sleeps on them the most, it brings back childhood memories of my gerbil cage and all the cedar I had in it.

    Oh well, better than smelling like the stuff she rolls in outside!

    One of the beds is a few months old...the smell has subsided a little, thankfully. What's funny is the friend who picked up the beds for me is strictly a cat person and she couldn't figure out what the smell was, having never heard of putting cedar in dog beds. She had to keep it out in her garage before she brought it over because she couldn't stand it! They are REALLY nice and huge beds though for $16!

    Those large Costco beds are the greatest. They hold up well, and are CHEAP! At least relative to anything else that I have found.

    We got one of those a few months ago and at first I couldn't figure out where the smell was coming from. I thought maybe he had rubbed up against one of the cedar bushes, but quickly found it was from the bed. It has gone away completely now, which is good, it was a little strong at first. I had hamsters and gerbils growing up too, and your right, it brought back the memories of them.

    I have never had a dog bet without cedar in them. Are they these beds?

    I have two in green and one in an rustic rust color.

    OH and I paid $9.98 for mine at Costco. But from what I understand the other Costco that Lil and Roo's breeder when to said she did see them for $16. Thought it was odd that the same bed was two different prices and separate costco's.

    Sometimes I wish this...sometimes, I don't LOL I went in there on my way home from the HRLRC show and in record time I blew a good chunk of money. Three beds, cereal, oatmeal...I think I spent almost $100 and was in there for 10 minutes.
