I really liked my pillow...
#1
As pillows go, it wasn't anything really all that special. It was one of those memory foam things where no matter how bent out of shape it got it always came back and "centered" itself. It was a nice pillow.

You could sort of stuff it under your neck, or your shoulder.... Or just lay on it. It didn't mind how you used it.

I spent many happy nights with my pillow. Granted, about the time we cuddled up really well together I'd doze off, but the pillow didn't mind. It was sort of it's "reason for being" I guess.

It was a nice pillow.......................

Did you know puppies can hold a grudge? For instance when they blame me because "mom" went out for the day. Somehow they think she must have left because of something I did.

Anyhow they do have their ways of getting even.

Such as getting a hold of my nice, comfy, foam ..... pillow.

I think tonight I'll sleep on the puppies. After all, they probably have a bunch of memory foam in them.

Oh... and the house? Well, let's just say I hope Mrs. Retired_Guy doesn't come back home anytime soon.

That really sucks~! Nothing much worse that having to get used to a different pillow. It doesn't matter if it's new, better, nicer, or what - it's just gonna be wrong somehow.

If they didn't destroy the entire pillow, perhaps there is a corner or edge you can still use?

FYI - a bit late, but doors, and baby-gates are a wonderful thing for puppies! Keeping them in (or out) of a room can save many critical items (like a pillow)

My personal fave is the first time puppy gets ahold of the roll of TP - and then pulls it out and all over the entire house - what memories....

Actually the miserable cats taught us about the TP thing. Now we have nice, designer tp holders with no tp in them.

Thanks for the pillow Pollcat. I'm saving it. Right now I'm sleeping on what I call my "debris" pillow. It is possible for memory foam to forget where they came from.

No, it's MEMORY foam.

I love feather pillows, the old style my grandmother and all of our family had when the choice was pretty much foam rubber and feather.

But in the last few years, I have not been able to find: The Perfect Pillow

Goose down or even duck DOWN is too soft and not moldable enough.

Memory foam is nice but also not really moldable.

The old feather pillows were not only moldable but by stuffing one side you could make the other side as hard or as soft as you wish. They never fight back but they resist just enough.

Sigh, still looking for the perfect pillow (I sleep with five and have a couple of rejects beside the bed.)

I went pillow shopping today. But I didn't come home with one. In the end I got to thinking about the puppies "inner wolf," and was concerned that once they had tasted pillow, no pillow would be safe around them.

I guess I'll just have to stay with chunky pillow.

Seriously, we taught (teach) the puppies "No" and "Leave it" so even if they destroy something we take it and show them the item, and similar items, then give the command and wait for them to 'turn away'.

Immediately you follow this by giving them one or more of THEIR items and tell them how good and wonderful they are with the command "Take It" which you teach off their food -- never let them eat without waiting for you to give permission with "Take it"

And this is the ONLY justification for having the TP end go UNDER the roll. It doesn't unravel that way, and the cats (or puppies) can entertain themselves for hours...
