Now for some paws-itive news. The four-legged residents at Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Home in the UK were treated to a cinema sleepover, courtesy of Silentnight Pet Beds, to celebrate the expert sleep brand and charity partnering throughout 2021.
According to Manchester Evening News, the resident pooches, including Betty and Poppy the Pomeranians, Alania the dachshund, Babs the greyhound, Rocky the beagle, Sammy the Labrador and Olive the whippet, snuggled up for their Silentnight Pet Beds-backed sleepover, where they enjoyed snacking on dog-friendly popcorn and ‘pawsecco’ – all while watching every canine’s favourite Christmas film, ‘The Snowman and the Snowdog.’
As with any sleepover, the snacks and making mischief proved much more popular than the movie!
The partnership between the rescue and Silentnight Pet Beds means the dog’s home charity has access to the full range of specialist pet beds whenever required throughout the year to ensure its residents get the best night’s sleep possible.
A spokesperson for Silentnight Pet Beds, Hayley Chaytor, said, “Sleep is an essential part of pets’ lives – and the residents of Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Homes need it more than most, particularly if they come from difficult backgrounds or have sadly been previously abandoned.”
“With over seven decades of experience in creating sleep havens for humans, we wanted to make sure that our pet beds cater to the ideal night’s slumber for the nation’s four-legged sleepers too,” Chaytor said. “We’re proud that these products will now provide sleep solutions for the fantastic Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Home, whose staff and volunteers work tirelessly to support the recovery and rehoming of abandoned pooches.”
According to Silentnight, the company uses a special fibre technology that’s ‘never been seen before in pet beds and makes sure even the fluffiest of dogs don’t overheat.’
The range of pet beds cater to both cats and dogs, whatever their individual needs. The range comprises of three collections – Ultrabounce, Airmax and Orthopaedic – and each uses the same technology as Silentnight’s human bedding and are available in sizes small, medium and large.
“The technology works well for all four-legged friends but is especially relevant for residents at Manchester and Cheshire Dogs Home, where the dogs often have issues with their joints or mobility due to their lives pre-rescue,” the company states. “For example, retired or abandoned racing greyhounds often have issues such as hip dysplasia due to over exercise and will find that the features used within the make-up of the Orthopaedic beds can greatly improve their comfort levels and quality of sleep.”
