Ayaka helped choose a new dog bed for her housemate. I set out 3 beds and this is the one she bee-lined for. She liked it so much that she wouldn’t get off of it when I went to pick it up.

After all her training sessions, she enjoys a nap on a comfy dog bed (she was snoring away when I took this!)
