Remember back in probably October, 2020 that I ordered a pet heating pad for Rita. It stayed on day and night . . it went off, she started barking. She truly loves it.
After a few months, I decided we’d better get a back up and one for downstairs, thinking Vince would spend a lot of time downstairs and she would be down there with him. Probably in January, the heating pad went out so I tossed it and started using the second one. Lately, she started chewing on it. The poor dog has so very few teeth. She has only several teeth left so how she was able to chew threw fabric and plastic, I’ll never know. Vince got some kind of heavy duty tape and taped all around the top and she chewed through that. It was getting down to where she was almost chewing into electrical parts so . . she lost her luxurious heating pad and was now sleeping only on her cushy Serta dog bed.
She did ok for about a week but the last few days, she’s aggravated the heck out of us wanting a heating pad. Last night Vince said “Where is the other one? I can’t take it any more!” I went downstairs and got it. We put it in several pillowcases and taped it shut so she can’t accidentally get up in the pillow cases and get lost and not find her way out. She’s a little bitty dog and blind. We put that heating pad in there and before it was even warm, she knew what it was, curled up on it and has been quiet.
We ordered two more heating pads as back ups. I could see something happening to this last one, having no backups and them being on backorder for six months! Not a fun time at our house!
We’re all set now. A new one yesterday and two more on the way. They may outlast the dog.
