Dachshund Nola Reviews: BunBeds


      Hi, all! Today I'm doing a review of the Etsy shop The Ominous Cloud, makers of the BunBedBunBeds are a super cozy bed designed with Dachshunds in mind, but it would be enjoyed by other small and medium sized dogs, and even cats. The Ominous Cloud also makes BunBeds for larger dogs (55-60lbs), like this one here.

A bit about the shop:

     Bunbed began with a dachshund's comfort in mind several years ago, around 2003. We noticed our dachshund would lie between our legs (Dachshund Mommy: Nola does this, too!)--this was funny and cute to watch. When she did go on her bed, we noticed she would "dig" a hole in the center of the bed to make a comfortable area to rest in. This is where we got the idea for the Bunbed. Over the years we've refined our design and added different fabrics and prints, but the idea is still the same--to squeeze and cushion your dog like a hotdog in a bun! 

     We've noticed that our dogs always jump into a Bunbed when we place one down for them, and that most dogs get comfortable in it right away. Quality, sturdiness and comfort are my main concerns with each and every bed I make. They can be washed and should remain durable for years to come if cared for. Bunbed began with dachshunds in mind, but we serve customers of all shapes and sizes (dogs and cats). We also make a larger size Bunbed (the Megabun). We have many different colors to choose from in our Etsy shop and more on the way. I am always available to answer any questions or comments you may have, just send a message my way!

     I picked the lovely Pink and Green Vines to review. The bed measures 22 x 28" (remember, this is the smaller sized bed), and it's made with 100% heavy cotton twill/upholstery weight fabric and stuffed with polyester filled pillows. The material is incredibly durable (I haven't torn it up!), and yet very soft. DM: the feeling is a bit like softer canvas.
In fact, it's so comfy both Mom and Sugar (my grandpa) stole it to lay on, BOL!

     I really, really love this bed. It's the prefect size, gorgeous colors to pick from, price that's comparable to beds you can get at PetSmart that are a much lower quality.

Zipper to easily remove the cover

Two pillows give the bed it's bun like shape

Stitching keeps them separated



Beautiful/cute/adorable/fashionable material, with lots of choices
Totally washable, both the cover and the pillows
Cover is removable
Fair prices
Decent customer service
Fairly fast shipping
Both a fleecy material and a denim/canvas material available
Incredibly comfortable

The only thing most of the prints shown are in fairly short supply, so if you see a print you like it might not be there later

     Overall, I give BunBeds 5 out of 5 stars! Head on over, and tell em your truly sent ya!

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
ps: What do you think of the new header?

For me?

Look at those beautiful piebald Dachshunds!

  3. When I saw the title of the blog, I thought that Bun Beds was a weird name for a dog bed. It all makes sense now. That's a brilliant idea!

  4. LOVE the new header!! Roxy would love this bed, she always snuggles down like that to sleep. Thanks for the great review.

  5. This looks like a wonderful product! and the photos of Nola with it are adorable. You always do such great reviews. I love the new header, but I'm not a good one to ask because I always love your headers. I love how you change them out for different holidays and seasons.

  6. What a great design for all our dachsie friends. It looks like you enjoyed your nap in the bun bed. I always love all your header pictures.


  7. Just one more new thing around our house for maggie to pee on...sigh......

  11. Our doxie friend, Millie's mum made her one of those by just sewing two pillow cases together. Millie loves it. So now, we have one, as well.

  14. Wow! The fabric for your bed looks fab. You also look super comfy on the bed!

  15. Love the fabiric of the bed. The design of the bed sounds interesting. Chester and Gretel DO love to lay in the crack between the pillows on our couch and I imagine this bed would feel very much like that.
