My dogs sleep in the human bed. While I would love to tell you that they never snore and always stay on their side, I can’t. Spot and Dolly are snorty bed hogs.
They are also the reason why I now sleep under a machine-washable quilt instead of one filled with dry-clean-only down. On more than one occasion, Dolly has tossed her cookies on the bedding — literally, as she gets 10 p.m. treats in a not-always-successful attempt to manage her acid reflux.
So why am I oversharing this information about my dogs? Because if you can relate to such a mishap, you will want to win this Friday Freebie: a Therapedic Waterproof Mattress Pad.
In addition to the waterproofing, Therapedic points out three other ways its pad protects a mattress from canine co-sleepers: AlwaysFresh Odor Eliminators, Puresleep Advanced Technology, and an antimicrobial fill, all of which the company says work together to break down, release, and even repel pet odors and stains. The 100-percent cotton, 250-thread-count pad also is hypoallergenic.
I’ve had this pad on the human bed for more than a month now and can report that not only is it comfy, I also haven’t felt the need to wash it along with the rest of the bedding each week, as I have done with previous pads. Thankfully, the waterproofing hasn’t been tested yet.
If you want to try the Therapedic Waterproof Mattress Pad, it costs $39.99 to $79.99, depending the size, at Bed Bath & Beyond, or you can enter to win one of four we have to give away by following the directions below.
