Well, I picked up some foam on the way home from work last night and Clarence has been using his new mat down the sideway already! He has his normal bed under cover at the back door, but he likes to sleep during the day down the sideway which is more out in the weather. Hopefully my new dog bed can cope... I'll have to get a photo of him on it before he gets up when I come around the corner.
I did manage to give Joseph a bit of a face last night which I am pleased about.
