When we adopted Fletcher, we immediately went to Petsmart to purchase everything we could possibly need for our new puppy. I figured we had to crate train even though I honestly didn't even know what crate training was. So, we bought the crate, and in an attempt to build a nest for new puppy, we bought this top-of-the-line brown velvety soft pad (with egg crate cushioning) for the bottom of the crate. This thing was so soft, I may have even considered sleeping on it a time or two. It was also nice looking and was a perfect fit for this crate. Well, I guess Fletcher didn't see it the same way because when I came home from work today, this is what I found. He'll have to make do with a hard plastic bed from now on.
