This bed is attractive, though not very large or very thickly padded. My dogs loved them as soon as i laid them out on the floors. However, the fun stops there. The very first wash split one's seam and each bed that I washed after that came out a big lumpy mess. This is definitely not a bed that can be washed in a top loader. Maybe in a front loader with less agitation it would fare better. The beds are now ALL lumpy and misshapen. I will confess i did NOT wash on gentle cycle--i do not believe in my old machine it would make a hair'sbreadth of difference, and one of the other reviewers says that she did use the recommended cycle and they stil came out badly. For this purchase of five beds i am sorry as i did wish to purchase something with long term comfort, quality for the purchase price, and reasonable longevity and not just good initial appearance.
