The Pampered Princess


A Happy Princess



New stuff! New stuff! New stuff!



The Producer is in my good books at the moment. She wasn’t a couple of days ago after yet another haircut and bath but she has redeemed herself. How you ask?

She bought me a new bed. Yep. A new bed just for me. My first ‘only me’ bed. Before I’ve always had to share my beds with Zac, not necessarily at the same time you understand, though on cold nights we did cuddle up together. But this one is all mine. Only my smell will be in this bed.

My cool Zena Cave

It is very cool.

She bought it because she knew I was still very anxious at being an only dog and she wanted me to feel safe at night. I love it.

I can curl up in it and the sides go over the top of me and I feel very snug and safe.

Me, loving the new bed

Since she bought it for me I have hardly been out of it.

Clever Producer bought it with a black insert because she said it wouldn’t look so dirty. I shall ignore the implied insult and just laugh. Ha!

It is the same colour as me inside and she is not always sure if I am in there or not! Several times she has had to walk over and peer into the bed to see if I am there. It is not that I am small – I weigh about 12 kilos so not a tiny dog. She just cannot see me against the black interior.

Okay so you can see my head but where’s the rest of me?

It is great. I can hide in there at night and feel like I am in a cave and it is almost as soft as lying next to Zac so that sometimes I can drift off to sleep and dream he is lying next to me and I can feel safe again.

On the outside it has blue and pink butterflies. Not quite sure why. I am not into butterflies. I chase them. But hey, I don’t care about the outside! Inside it is furry – just like me.

The pretty butterflies on the outside.

You judge from these pics. Can you tell when I’m in the bed and when I’m not in the bed?

Empty or not empty?

The next time she wants me for a bath I know where to go!

How about this one? Am I there or not?

Love from The Pampered Princess

Author: Zena

I am The Princess (aka Zena), niece of Zac the All Black and awesome Tibetan Terrier who took me in when I was just a six week pup and tried to teach me all he knew. When I was six and he was eight, Zac crossed over the rainbow bridge and all of a sudden I was alone. I could no longer be the ditzy, happy-go-lucky pup that I had been. This is a diary of how one Princess managed when the world turned real.

  2. that is a fantastic bed. You look so happy in it. Well done Producer!

    • Yep for once she did okay.
      Mind you I’m not allowing her to be smug. I’ve stopped eating the raw food and I am demanding she cooks it!
      I haven’t decided what I’ll do next week πŸ™‚

  3. It’s a very pretty bed and looks very comfortable. You do sort of blend into the inside!

  4. Hi. You look so happy and comfortable in your new bed. Love Nellie and Jasper

    • Not too shabby is it? I’m going back in it again now. Just had a quick break to see if dinner was ready. It isn’t so …. back to THE BED πŸ™‚

  5. Lucky you! It’s jolly hard to see if you are in there πŸ˜‰

  6. What a great bed! Whee are super jealous! You deserve a little snuggly compensation though after a bath!

  7. That’s a wonderful bed, I would dream of Butterflies all night – how cool!!!

  8. Excellent bed! Zak has one just like it but without the butterflies. But his has a bit of a problem – it has holes chewed in the bottom of it. Zak would never do that to his bed but his best mate Zeus did it!

  9. That is one SUPER cool bed Zena! You’re such a lucky princess! Great camouflage, I really couldn’t see you in that last photo. Your family sure does love you LOTS! πŸ˜€

  10. Tell your peeps to get off Their butts and get you a brother to boss around.

    • The Producer would like to but….. her beloved isn’t willing at this point. We can’t replace Zac but the house is so quiet with just me and I would like a pal and The Producer would like to have a pal. Ah well, we have to make the best of it.

  11. What a great bed!
    Say Zena, would you mine sharing that bed with a furry black beast like you, he still pees inside, is being naughty, but is hugable, stinks yes, but that’s not important.
    I’m sure Doggy will bring his dirty and torn blanket and share it with you.

    • Hmmmmmm – doesn’t sound much of a trade to me Doggy. A dirty torn blanket versus my lovely fluffy new bed – and he pees!! No thank you. Contact me again when you don’t stink (nose in the air) love Princess xxx

  12. What a swell bed the Producer got for you!!! No doubt you have the perfect hiding spot when bath time rolls around….can hardly see you in there. It sure looks comfy – purrrfect spot for a nap or two or three or more.

  13. What an awesome bed – I could do with one to lose myself in. Think I will go and make some demands!

  14. That looks pawesome πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

    • I am enjoying it so much The Producer is wondering if she should have bought it for me. She is wondering where her lap dog has gone. Who needs a bony lap when there is a soft furry bed available?

  15. Great bed to curl up into πŸ™‚ xxx

  16. What a cute bed! It’s totally made for a princess πŸ™‚

  17. I loooooooooooove this picture of her! With her pretty red rhinestone collar, she looks looks so regal. Not to mention your zebra/butterfly bed is another reason why I can’t help but wish my little kirby was born a girl, haha, though that could probably get dangerous with me! XD

  18. Looks like a great bed and I like the butterflies πŸ˜‰

  19. Zena, this is a wonderful Princess bed that you got!

  20. Zena, your bed looks really cosy, comfy and warm. Must be feeling very safe too, when you’re in disguise. I like chasing butterfies too.. I’ll ask Granny to get me a bed like yours πŸ˜‰

  21. Zena, your new bed is so chic! And it can also be a great place to play peek a boo with The Producer! πŸ™‚
