Dog lovers across the UK can now treat their canine companion to a tasty looking dog bed in the shape of a giant Yorkshire pudding.

The bed has been created by the food brand Aunt Bessie’s and is on sale now, with all proceeds going to the charity Guide Dogs. The charity provides life-changing support to help people with sight loss in the UK so they can get the well deserved second chance at a life they want.

The limited-edition pet bed costs £50 and is suitable for small to medium dogs as well as cats. It has padded sides and a fur-lined cushioned base for your pampered pooch’s comfort and is crafted to replicate the popular Aunt Bessie’s Golden Yorkshire Pudding – a Sunday dinner favourite in homes across the nation.

Bessie, a golden retriever guide dog puppy, who has been sponsored by Aunt Bessie’s following its charity partnership with Guide Dogs, was the inspiration behind the creation of the dog bed as it marked the birth of the puppy.

Sam Dolan, Head of Marketing at Aunt Bessie’s, commented on the special project: “As a company of dog lovers, we wanted to create something special to celebrate the birth of Bessie and pay tribute to our new partnership with Guide Dogs.

“We’re sure Aunt Bessie’s fans are going to love the Yorkshire Pudding dog bed and we hope they join us in celebrating and supporting the fantastic work of Guide Dogs.”

Donna Beetham, National Corporate Partnerships Manager at Guide Dogs, added: “We’re excited to have Aunt Bessie’s onboard as partnerships like this are vital to Guide Dogs to support people with sight loss to live actively, independently and well.

“We look forward to working together on even more initiatives that raise awareness and funds to deliver our life-changing work.”
