Dashing thing of the month: Houndworthy's houndlounger

 Travel beds got an upgrade, big time

A sherpa bed as the product of the month is August – really? Yes, really. Because first of all, we live in the UK, and the summer has been rubbish. Secondly, dog bottoms deserve to be comfortable at all times – nothing tells your dog "I love you more than you will ever know" that carrying a plush mat around for her. Thirdly, this gorgeous Houndlounger by one of our favourite dog brands, Houndworthy, might be big enough for both of you, provided your dog moves over a bit.

Available in two colours (red or midnight blue) and two sizes (small for £65 or large for £72), this roll-up design is made of water-resistant cotton with a synthetic sherpa lining. The large one is big enough to keep the bottoms of the entire Wunderdog editorial team cosy on a rugged bench, while overlooking the sea and sharing a sausage roll. We'll pack it for all upcoming Wanderdog road trips and pub afternoons. Click here to order yours. NM
