I chose the product based on the description and photo. It is exactly as we had hoped for. Our Bassett, Sadie expresses her opinion. A picture is worth a thousand words. The bed holds its shape remarkably. When Annabelle is in one of her silly moods, she literally dives into the bed. The bed stays in place and offers good support for her 80 pounds. She enjoys the pillow type bolsters. The design and appearance are well thought out. It blends nicely with furniture in our family room.
