Awww, how sweet Chelsea is! She's going to make a fine therapy dog, it sounds like.
It's funny that you should say that. I learned, some time ago, when we really began importing Asian clothing and shoes, that they ran too small, or were, at the least, inconsistent.
Clothing seemed to do away with darts, so even clothes that fit don't seem to have the chest room needed, and Ds, who only wears a size 9 shoe, has to get a larger size if he's buying off the rack. (I can't say for more than him, because most off the rack shoes stop at size 12 for men, and Dh wears a larger size than that.)
Once upon a time, a size 7, say, was a size 7. It might be a bit long for we who are vertically challenged or you might not love the cut, but it basically fit, even if it wasn't to your taste. But, it's not been that way for a while now.
However, I'd never thought of there being the same issue with items like dog beds. Thank you for the heads up!
