I just bought a new bedspread.  It is sad, but i knew i had to buy one with a pattern because we have a dog and it would be more forgiving.  I would rather sleep with my dog than have the “pretty” bedspread thoguh I guess 🙂

We have a white couch, and a lap dog. It’s not a good combination! Although I can take the covers off and wash them, as soon as I put them back on, they are dirty again. He’s too cute to kick him off, though!

I can see why you like the white, it is so peaceful and serene! I love our couch when it’s clean! If you are set of getting the white, try and keep him off the bed! If not, be prepared to wash/have it washed often!

I have a white bedspread and a fiancé. Go for a pattern.

If I wasn’t so embarrased I would show you a picture of my white slipcover on a loveseat that has become the dogbed. There’s really no way this will go well. I love white comforters too, so I know it’s disappointing, but I even stopped buying white sheets. 

Also, I highly reccomend a duvet, it’s much easier to wash than a bedspread/comforter.

@Brickette:  I’d say go with a darker bedroom set or keep the dog off the bed 🙁

I have two messy rambunctious dogs and buy white everything. It’s so much easier to be able to bleach everything than to have to worry about getting stains out all the time!

We have two white cats and got a bunch of black table linens.  It was not a good idea. We wised up and got a white bedspread after that… and two months later, we took in a pregnant black cat.  We still have her and one of her kittens left, and the kitten is also black.  They, of course, sleep on our bed all day.

We’ve discovered that although the black fur on the white bedspread is not as bad as the white fur on the black napkins, it’s still not pretty.  It also just stains easily, even if the cats don’t go near it.  I would just give in and get a patterned bedspread if I were you.

We got beautiful linens for our wedding. Now we have “dog in bed night” a few times a week, where we switch out our nice duvet for an old comforter! You know you love your dog when…..

I have this combo. I just keep a white sheet on the bed most of the time to protect the comforter…

I wanted white sheets and duvet (doona…yay I got to use australian!) but we have a black lab. I found a really nice dark grey sheet set and patterned duvet cover at Pillow Talk. So far so good….just the drool still shows up 😛

@Brickette:  I am interested in your post mostly because I am planning to funish my house mostly with white furnishings….  I just bought an all white patio set.  Let’s see how our basset hound does with the patio set before I invest any more money in white stuff. lol

I vote keep the dog off the bed. You’ll mind more than he does to sleep in his own bed. Plus your bed will be cleaner (not just look cleaner, it will be cleaner). And you won’t have to re-train an elderly dog when his arthritis makes hoping in bed painful or the sporadic bouts of incontinence aren’t convenient where you sleep.
I know I’m in the minority here though. I don’t think pets should be on furniture, especially a couple’s bed!
