I need a better dog bed for my old lab. Everything I buy ends up lumpy. If I fluff them, they get more lumpy.

His old bones need something super comfortable. Any ideas?

I'm wishing I never threw away old twin sized mattresses. Never occurred to me I'd need them.

Maybe that's the solution. Maybe I should buy a crib mattress?

A crib mattress is a great idea. We have an old Lab too...tile floors, so I'm thinking this will be her next bed. A crib sheet in the summer will keep it cool and a fleece or flannel sheet in the winter...warm and cozy. Petsmart has a big dog bed too...about the size of a crib mattress but lots more money.

I have had good luck with a couple of memory foam beds. They're about 3 or 4" thick and do retain their shape. I think I bought them at Walmart...about $35/40.

Crib mattress and memory foam are good choices. I've used both. I also use currently one of those orthopaedic foam beds, which is basically foam shaped like egg crates.

Hopes,

We have 4 labs and our yellow is getting older, he's going on 9. We bought a really nice memory foam bed from Orvis last year or so. It was expensive but it has held up nicely with 4 dogs using it.

Now, if I could only find a good mattress for my old bones!
