Our one year old German Shepherd dog, Beck, was very nervous when we first brought home our ginger kitten, Bleu. It took about a week before Beck figured out all Bleu wanted to do was play, and they've been best friends ever since. For the last six months they've been play fighting, fight fighting, chasing, and cuddling each other every day.
Coolaroo Elevated Pet Bed - We've had this bed for almost two years now and it's still supporting Beck's fat butt nightly. Seems to keep him comfy and cool. It's also super easy to clean with a garden hose. - https://amzn.to/2MaE9Hy
