The Kuranda bed finally arrived. I am not very happy with the company I ordered from because I placed the order on Feb 2. It didn't ship until the 15 and arrived here on the 25th. I do a lot of mail order and that seems long to me. However the shipping was free so I can't complain too much. The bed is very sturdy and doesn't seem to have anything Maggie can chew. It was simple to assemble. I would guess it would take 15 to 20 minutes without the help of a beagle. My Maggie was unhappy about not having my attention and proceeded to steal anything in the room that was available to her (I had the bed and its parts on the table and she was mad about not being able to reach it). I will let you know in a week or two if the bed is still in one piece and if Maggie likes it.
